In more than 75 countries it is illegal to be gay . Punishments range from fines to prison sentences (sometimes lifelong), hard labor, forced psychiatric treatments, banishment, whippings, and even death by public stoning.
I have launched this
campaign to ask for your help in raising money to help LGBT victims and their
families worldwide. I envision a dark rainbow flag on the homepage of our
website, and for each donation, a small portion of the flag becomes illuminated
until the entire flag is ablaze with color. While we may not be able to change
existing laws in those countries, we can certainly raise awareness and help as
many individuals as possible!
