My Partner & I (Arishmary in Canada) are trying to get to Sponsor a beautiful Transgender Gay Asylum Seeker Living in South Africa right now. He’s 24 years old at the moment of writing this, and everyday is Danger for him because he is a Congolese Transgender, from the Congo.
Human Rights & Freedom Costs For All of Us - But More For Transgender Gay Asylum Seeker “June” Because He’s Trapped in South Africa and Waiting for work to be done for him; to finally be granted Permission To Leave. Please Help Me Help Him Survive this waiting period.
There are Extremely Dangerous Conditions & Environment surrounding Mr. Junior Mayema residing in South Africa Cape Town right now and living scared everyday. Junior is a Transgender Feminine gay Congolese Male who has fled from The Congo; to Cape Town where he thought he would be safe, but he is not and as everyday goes by - potential danger comes along with; because of Homophobia, Femaphobia and Xenophobia.
I had to write a Petition Letter so that everyone could be aware of how dangerous it is for Trangendered Gay Congolese Junior in South Africa, and all the people who are signing also believe it is dangerous for Junior in South Africa. The Signatures at the petition are from people who agree and want June to be allowed to Leave South Africa Immediately; and to able to come to Canada for continuing her education & becoming a landed immigrant of Canada.
If you can support this Cause with a Financial Donation to me that would be so helpful and appreciated, but if you can not; think about signing the petition and spreading it around? http://chn.ge/UNHCR-Petition Thank you so much.
It may take a long time, lots of money, lots of confusion and lots of patients, because it’s just not simple. There is no simple Emergency Track to take, no fast tracking what so ever. No simple papers, no simple meetings and definitely no simple procedures, but for an Emergency Transgender Congolese case in south africa - it should be simple and completed already just by hearing out the case.
Time passes by and it may look safe for gays and lesbians in South Africa, but it is not safe for this Congolese Trangendered Feminine Gay Boy; not even in the GLBT Community.
Born Protestant: Transgender Gay Male: Had Started Studying Law at the University of Kinshasa before she had to flee,, Knows English, Français, Born in Kinshasa on July 30, 1987 - and not only in the Gay & Lesbian Community in South Africa is there Femaphobia, but also racisim against Congolese people & still Homophobia against Transgender People.
Edward & I are in Ontario Canada and wanting to Sponsor Junior after he gets help and able to leave that Unsafe Continent. Not only will we sponsor him but we’ve been sending him money for rent and food and we will continue until he arrives. The only thing stopping him from leaving to come to Ontario Canada is the paper work between governments, Human Rights Lawyers and NGO‘s.
There is “0” fast track to help Asylum Seeker Victims in Emergencies. But we will continue to help financially as best as we can. The end of the month is here now and Ed and I will be sending our NGO Contact, money for June’s New Rent in a New Place that will be safer; and that she’s moving into right away.
We will do this each month until something is successful in all of our actions that will show everyone involved; that we need to Save June Equality Mayema Now. She is a value to any Society and Canada will be happy to have her that is for sure.
It is my partner Edward that is sending his money for her now (not to mention spending a lot of time on phone calls and information seeking), and it is he who will be the legal Sponsor when the time comes. We care about her and needless to say you know he is like my Sister now. Not only my sister but my Daughter also because he’s 20 years younger than I am, feminine as I am, and needs my Help.
When she gets here (if she gets here) she will also need our help for a long time, like forever so we’re ready for that and will feel like we’re helping our own family member that we Love and will always be there for.
Our concern is if she will be alive tomorrow but we will try to keep her safe by supporting her financially while living in various places at various times. Because she is a targeted gay person; Trangendered, girly, sensitive, obvious, naturally happy and all the sissy; panzy, fairy jokes you can think of. He is like a girl, so he’s a girlyboy and so am I. Ed is not, Ed is one hundred percent amazing Male, but June has been in hell waiting for things to be hurried and there just isn’t a “hurry” when you deal with Government.
She is in terrible states, so frantically with Love & Concern I use the term “she” because I’m now her family and need to have her with me. Ed and I are willing to except her whole heartedly into our lives and can’t wait until it happens but it‘s not even allowed to happen at the moment. The Violence against Trangendered gay boys and also anyone who is Congolese (especially male Transgender and girly) is happening right now whether it’s allowed or not; it has found her and will find her again.
I don’t know if you know about her but she’s been trying for a long time to get the word out about her plight, and at the same time trying to help others online with theirs. By the time it finally clicked in; how in trouble she was, after getting to know her, our friendship bloomed into family so I was needing to immediately start helping her.
The Financial Support I'm asking for Today is For protection; for shelter, for refuge, for human rights, for Education and more. For All the obstacles that come in the way of progress & Freedom, and for all the phone bills that years of assisting June will bring.
Crimes against humanity, torture, killing, persecutions, the prosecutorial system, attacks, homophobia, femaphobia, xenophobia, sexism, racism, ignorance, HATE AND DEATH. Please Help Me Save Just One Beautiful Life today; that’s all I ask, just for a little help. Imagine If we just had 500 people give 10 each, wow we’d have $5000 dollars to help us help June.
She went there for Sanctuary after ending up fleeing from a Sexist, Racist, Homophobic Criminally Violent Prison called The Congo. FLEEING OPPRESSION FOR IMPRISONMENT is what happened - And now there’s no quick fix or fast route for an emergency such as this one.
We’ll take care of everything here and at some point in the future she’ll be a Canadian Citizen (but for me a friend for life; the sister I always wanted, the brother I know will always be here for me).
We can do this, we can save this beautiful AND Amazing Transgender Girlyboy Feminine Loving Person, who feels like people are always attacking her, regardless if it's physical or mental. She is still young, still impressionable, still trusting of to many, and still in danger. She is my sister, she is my brother.
I say she, I call her; but please help us save his life. Donate to me some of your hard earned money. We can always talk on the phone if you want; you can always send me a message here or on Facebook, I can always do things for you online, and you will forever be appreciated.
If you are worried that the money will be mismanaged, don’t worry it will not be. Our NGO contacts in South Africa are in charge of the money for her from us, they are responsible adult professionals and activists; humanitarians and educated people who fight for Human Rights and know exactly what to do because they follow all the rules of government.
The money is Sent; managed, allocated and monitored as it leaves them for costs of keeping June Alive & Safe. It is not lost or spent wastefully.
Basically we need to save June, she is worthy of Life, has a lot to give, and is an Activist still helping others when ever she can.
There has to be international Justice FOR GLBT ASYLUM SEEKERS, REGUGEES, INNOCENT POLITICAL PRISONERS, PROTESTERS AND SO MUCH MORE, so until there is - We NEED YOU..
This is a blog/Notes I keep for June at Fb: http://on.fb.me/JMblog and there are many other pages pertaining to June & Her Terrible Situation, You can find all those pages and more here: http://bitly.com/or349p , it’s not as if she’s the only one in trouble but she’s the only one that means the world to me now, so please help today.
Please go to those pages above for more and come here to give - or go there for more and become my friend on Fb so we can message each other while you decide how much to give. I am very personable so please don't feel insecure about communicating with me.
I can be your friend or I can just except your financial help; you can be anonymous or I can blog about your generosity to the world. You can send me a cheque or money order (addressed to Edward Remming), or just please help me help June Mayema, so she can have a Life worthy of all her loving goodness.
