It’s day 77 of Michael’s 79 days challenge and today represents Yemen, a country where homosexuality is considered to be illegal. People who identify as LGBTQ in Yemen are likely to suffer discrimination, in addition to both legal and social challenges. According to the country’s Shari’ah law, the maximum punishment for anyone who commits same-sex sexual activity in Yemen is death.
With only 2 days left of Michael’s challenge, now’s your chance to show your support for Michael by sponsoring him! All the money will go towards running Breakout Youth, a charity that supports LGBTQ young people in Southampton, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight by helping the young people to build their confidence and accept who they are.
