Making Contact - LGBTQ Immigrants Speak Out

While the country waits to see if the U.S. Congress will fix the broken immigration system, more than 11-million undocumented people are left in limbo.  Over the past few years, those living in the shadows have begun to organize, but still more hurdles lie ahead.

On this edition, we hear from LGBTQ immigrants in the U.S. who not only have to hide  their legal identity, but their sexuality too.  Their stories demonstrate why living illegally in the U.S. is not only their refuge, but also their biggest fear.


Un Jung Lim, gay immigrant; Aries Liao, Q-Wave steering committee member reading story of gay immigrant from Egypt; Rev. Noel Bordador, gay immigrant; Sadat Iqbal, reading for queer immigrant friend from Bangladesh; Trishala Deb, Arcus Foundation National LGBT Rights Program Officer.
