Darnell was recently invited to be part of a historical trip to Palestine with 14 other LGBT activists/scholars/artists in January 2012. This trip will be the first of its kind and we are excited about his participation. Please consider making a donation.
The trip will include the following opportunities:
- Visits to Palestinian cities, villages, and refugee camps in the West Bank, occupied East Jerusalem.
- Opportunities for the delegation to meet and interact with internally displaced Palestinians living inside Israel..
- Opportunities to develop a better understanding of daily life under occupation while addressing the history of the region.
- Opportunities to meet with Palestinian Queer organizations as well as individual activists to have an open discussion about their experiences and struggles as Queer Palestinians.
Darnell is looking forward to participating in this historical delegation. We humbly request your assistance to get him there. We have a fundraising goal of $5000, which will cover accommodations, food and travel expenses (including airfare).
We are reaching out to you with the hopes that you might be open to donating. The delegates are looking to secure all logistics (including purchase of tickets, lodging, etc.) by September 2011.
Please consider making a donation. Your gift will make a difference!
