It’s been just over a year since GAY TIMES launched Amplifund. The charity partnership was founded with LGBTQ+ rights charity, GiveOut, with the core aim to support and fund activist and media-based LGBTQ+ organisations in more challenging global environments.
This year, our campaign was inspired by feedback from our partners on how communications from charitable campaigns from the global north can so often be patronising or inaccurate.
The stories we are sharing over the next two weeks centre around three phrases, ‘it can happen,’ ‘it does happen,’ and ‘it will happen,’ to challenge how we perceive queer livelihoods away from our home environments.
Below are some first-hand accounts from LGBTQ+ people living in countries where their human rights are still not recognised. They give insight to the daily challenges and struggles of queer people in those regions, but also their defiance and commitment to living authetically as themselves.
