LGBT+ people around the world are facing a humanitarian crisis. And COVID-19 risks decimating the organizations they rely on for support. UK-based international LGBT+ charity, the Kaleidoscope Trust, conducted research in 37 countries in the Commonwealth – nations that were previously part of the British Empire. By speaking to 34 LGBT+ charities working in those countries, it found that 85% were worried about their service users’ wellbeing. And many organizations may not survive. Almost half have no cash reserves. Moreover, most are worried about losing existing or future income. Phyll Opoku-Gyimah is executive director of Kaleidoscope Trust.
