Did you know that there are people who have to flee from their home countries being threatened for who they are and for who they love rather than religious persecution or war? In Europe there is little awareness to these people – some of them are sent back, not seldom to death.
I initiated this project and connected photographers, journalists, designers but also foundations to publish a magazine which includes 23 written and photographic portraits of LGBT* refugees living in Bavaria. Additionally, I organised various events including readings, lectures and performances to draw attention to this important issues.
Rainbow Refugees (Stories) tells
the stories of 27 LGBT* refugees
who are persecuted in their home
countries because of their sexual
orientation or identity.
