Electing Trump has brought intense worry and fears to so many communities, including the folks I help every day - LGBTQ immigrants fleeing persecution and those immigrants living with HIV. It's a crime to be gay in nearly 80 countries! They are immigrants who fled for their lives, and now their fears about their future have resurfaced once again, here in 'Murica. 

I'm turning 39 (EEK!) on Nov. 20th and ask that you join me in this fight to help these immigrants remain safely in the U.S. through asylum. I'd like 39 (or more) friends to donate $39 each (or more) for my 39th B-day. In keeping with the "39" theme, we are currently representing nearly 600 individuals, bi-national couples, and their familes in 39 states - with no cost to them!

Awesome stats about Immigration Equality's asylum work:
-We have achieved over 940 victories to date and approaching our 1,000th win.
-We maintain a remarkable 99% success rate.
-57% of our clients are under 30 years old.
-22% of our clients are living with HIV.
-Our clients are from 84 countries.
-All of our clients live below the federal poverty level. 

THANK YOU for supporting Immigration Equality, and the LGBT immigrant community that we serve. Donate here or directly at
