Day 57 – Solomon Islands
Michael is now in his 9th week of abstaining from meat, fish and sugary treats! Today marks the lack of LGBTQ rights in Solomon Islands, where same-sex sexual activity is punishable by up to 14 years in prison. Acts of “gross indecency” can also be punishable of up to 5 years imprisonment.
Michael is abstaining from meat, fish and sugary treats to raise awareness of the lack of LGBTQ rights in the 79 countries around the world. In doing so, Michael is also raising money for 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.
