When Aicha* kissed her girlfriend goodbye, she didn't know it would be their last kiss.
Aicha is a refugee from Tunisia. After her parents caught her and her girlfriend kissing, her life came to a hold: Her parents tried to force her to get married, she lost her job, and she was facing the risk of getting three years in prison under Tunisia's anti-gay law.
She escaped to Germany but the authorities didn't believe her story and rejected her request for asylum. Luckily, she met a group of activists who offered to get her a lawyer. The lawyer helped make the authorities reconsider her case and she was finally granted asylum.
All Out is partnering with Homosexuelle Selbsthilfe (HS), a Germany-based organisation that helps cover legal and translation costs for asylum seekers - but their funds for this year are already completely used up.
Can you chip in today to help refugees like Aicha?
