BBC: Importance of IRAP’s Work for LGBT Iraqis

A BBC documentary piece describing the plight of hunted LGBT Iraqis also featured an interview with IRAP Director Becca Heller about IRAP’s efforts in the region, and ways that the U.S. government could improve its protection of refugees persecuted on account of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

IRAP has been working to provide emergency shelter, protection and resettlement to LGBT Iraqis escaping violent persecution.
