day-37-malawiToday is day 37 of Breakout Youth Development Worker Michael’s 79 days of abstinence from meat, fish and sugary treats to raise awareness of the lack of LGBTQ rights in 79 countries around the world.

Day 37 represents Malawi, where both male and female homosexuality is illegal, with a punishment of up to fourteen years imprisonment. Despite homosexuality being illegal, in 2014 the Justice Minister announced that Malawi would no longer arrest people for same-sex sexual activity and that the anti-gay laws would be reviewed.

If you would like to support Michael in his 79 days of abstinence, you can sponsor him to help raise money for LGBTQ young people in Southampton, Eastleigh, Basingstoke and on the Isle of Wight. Find out more here.
