Support Seagirl Supporting LGBTQI In Kenya

Donation protected
Seagirl Abuson came to Canada as a refugee last year. She spent time in a refugee camp in Kenya after fleeing homophobia and transphobia in her home country of Uganda. Kenya is unfortunately also plagued with violent homophobia and LGBTQI refugees living in these camps are not safe.

The chosen family Seagirl had amongst the LGBTQI folks in the camp started the first ever pride in a refugee camp and have worked tirelessly to campaign for their safety and rights as LGBTQI people in a violently homophobic scenario.

Since relocating to Canada Seagirl has continued to support her chosen family back in the camp who are not safe there. Last month one of the LGBTQI folks from the camp died by suicide at the UN office in Nairobi in hopes to draw attention to the hopelessness they are feeling. Since then,  they were targeted in an extremely violent attack that left one dead, one in critical condition and the 4 surviving in hospital were threatened by their attackers that they would be killed if they returned to the camp.

This campaign is to help Seagirl Abuson continue to support these members of our extended community with their hospital bills,   supplies for recovery and costs for potential safety planning and/or relocation costs. She lives very simply in Canada and gives so much of what she has to those with less access, safety and support.  Seagirl has volunteered with the Trans Tipping Point Youth Arts mentorship project and uses her online networks to do tireless education in the face of brutal homophobia. Please donate to show her that she (and her family) is held.

Support Black Trans Women in their labour to care for the most targeted among us.
