Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Somali people in home countries and worldwide, telling their untold stories. Weaving between cultural and religious limitations, LGBT Somalis balance celebrating their sexualities or gender identities while keeping in mind the harsh realities that family, community, or local laws might be against them. This collection of stories defies both the headlines in western nations and the complete denial of LGBT identities by the mainstream Somali communities.
