2020 Overwhelmed by LGBTQI Migrant Crisis

In the words of an LGBTQI refugee – from the streets of Kenya… with more to come ….
In the dark, I sit where the site of distress is bliss, my thoughts are cadacomn cliffs and I teeter
 Voices of responsibility ring out bleakly, my eyes can’t close up
My brain won’t free me
It’s 2020
 Million eyes still crying
Those that never sinned
The street lights are all flickering
Whilst, innocent souls on streets
Hungry and hopeless from a broken life
Angry, with their fists clenched
They have always watched us from behind curtains
Not concerned about what they see
With their hot drinks beside them
Wishing it’s never them
A desperate stranger watched from a distance
We are treated as fools
 Belongings strewn across pavements
Where do we go?
We are treated as worthless human beings
As if our lives don’t matter
Down on the darkened streets, we are Thousands!
Our souls are largely overwhelmed!
The overwhelmed souls!

Kenya proves it can no longer Host LGBTI Refugees due to Escalating Violence

It is Xmas day. Two nights ago, while asleep for the first time in their new shelters at Kakuma Kenya, LGBTI refugees were attacked with sticks and fists.  Terrified they were about to be killed, some ran for the bushes and others risked camping outside the Reception Center in the hope that they may finally receive some real protection and security.
