People Against Suffering Oppression and Poverty (PASSOP) and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom have partnered in the production of a series of informative stories in video and written format aimed at promoting LGBTQI rights under the human rights umbrella for sub-Saharan Africa.
Refugees and Asylum Seekers from different parts of the continent who are now living in South Africa share stories on the reasons why they left their home countries to seek refuge in South Africa.
With #AfriQueerRefugeeVoices you will watch, hear and read the gross human rights violations faced by people who have been forced to leave their homes because of the fear of persecution. You will also hear stories about the challenges they now face in a new environment that claims to protect them constitutionally. There are inspiring stories of hope showing what some of the refugees are doing to positively intergrate into their new environments. The handbook and video stories were launched in Cape Town, South Africa on 15 February 2019.
