ABOUT What We Carry With Us: LGBTQ+ Refugee Storylab
On the run in East Africa, a young trans man’s earring wards off evil. In a refugee camp, a growing LGBTQ+ community weaves rainbow bracelets to wear in a daring act of solidarity and resistance. Armed with a new US passport, a refugee from Central America visits her grandmother and faces down death threats.
