Interview: Neil Grungras, founder of ORAM
As homophobic violence has intensified across the Middle East over the last two to three years, we have been hearing of increasing numbers of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender refugees and asylum seekers. This week, Gays.com kicks off a series of interviews with the founders of three non-governmental organisations that work specifically with LGBT refugees. We hope to shine the spotlight on some of the people that are working on the front line in this arena and help them gain support from within the community for the very important work that they do. First on the hot seat is Neil Grungras, founder and executive director of the San Francisco-based Organization for Refuge, Asylum and Migration (ORAM), which was mentioned a while ago on this blog.
