Seeking Refuge: A Journey to Refugee Advocacy

  • subhi nahas

Subhi Nahas fled antigay persecution in Syria to become an advocate for refugees everywhere. In August 2015, Subhi shared his story - and the experiences of many persecuted LGBT Syrians - with the UN Security Council: "In 2011, at the start of the uprising in Syria, government media launched a campaign accusing all dissidents of being homosexuals. Soon after, authorities waged systematic raids on locales where gay people met. Many were arrested and tortured. Some were never heard from again."
