Ron reached out to me around 2013, and in early 2014 I met him in Nairobi, Kenya, where he ended up after running away from Uganda. He was looking for asylum, and waited to be relocated to one of the countries, where they accept LGBT asylum seekers. He was waiting for about 2 years, and one day I found out that he has been relocated to USA. His life was challenging there as well.

We kept in contact, communicated a lot. He was happy to be a part and I was so excited to share his story, but shortly after I went to Uganda in 2020, our communication got interrupted. I really hope he is fine and that soon we will start communicating again. So with Ron’s story, it is still to be continued..
