Africa's queer refugees don't choose their sexuality. If it was a choice they would be choosing to be hated and persecuted by family, friends, church or mosque, the police. They would be choosing to be raped, beaten, starved, imprisoned and humiliated. No-one is that stupid. Through my book, I want to raise $1,000,000 to save lives, provide food and shelter, give some dignity and help people find resettlement in other countries. And I want to shame those who choose hatred and division over love.
