Immigration Equality

I recently came across this website for the organization Immigration Equality. They are a national organization working on issues of equality for LGBT and HIV-positive immigrants.

This is valuable humanistic work, for a sector of the immigrant population that is often ignored. I am reminded of the complex processes of culture and nation which lead some to become “sexiles” (from Manuel Guzmán’s 1997 article “Pa’ la escuelita con mucho cuida’o y por la orillita’: A Journey through the Contested Terrains of the Nation and Sexual Orientation”).  The work of this organization reminds us all that the journey to a new home is also often a mixed solution in itself.

If you don’t want to donate to the cause, at least check out their blog.
