A group of LGBTI refugees who faced violence after holding a Pride festival in their refugee camp have been forced to find new ways to make money because of anti-LGBTI persecution.
Gay Star News exclusively reported in June that LGBTI refugees in the Kenyan Kakuma Refugee Camp held the first Pride parade there. Many of them come from Uganda. The Kakuma refuguee camp is one of the largest in the world. All of the LGBTI refugees in Kakuma fled their home countries because of persecution they faced because they are LGBTI.
