LGBT Migrants Are Vulnerable to Coronavirus, But Our Community Can Help

 | 
04/04/2020

Our LGBT communities are impacted in various ways by the global Coronavirus pandemic. Some of us are lucky enough to have a safe place to stay, while others must put themselves at risk by going to work in hospitals, grocery stores and delivery companies. But this crisis has presented us with a unique opportunity to ensure the health and safety of our community, and LGBT people are coming together in various creative ways to make an impact. One such organization, ORAM (Organization for Refuge, Asylum and Migration), is working to support the most vulnerable among us, LGBT migrants. Thousands of LGBTIQ people flee from their homes because of the persecution they face just for trying to be who they are. They must endure in a cramped refugee camp, where there is a lack of fresh water and soap while COVID-19 continues to spread.
