What We Carry With Us: LGBTQ+ Refugee Storylab

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.

When you’ve nearly lost everything, what do you cherish most?
