Support & Relief for international LGBTQIA+
We believe that with privilege comes responsibility. It is our responsibility to support the persecuted members of our international community.
Save LGBTQIA+ lives
1 in 5 LGBTQIA+ people are persecuted in 2020. In 74 countries, they are considered criminals. In 13 countries the punishment is death. We offer hope to those who live in places where their identity is attacked and their lives are in danger by providing Visas that allow those in danger to start over in safer places. Your support is an essential part of the success of our work. Your voice is a valuable tool. Will you step into this conversation? Will you help us bring more lives to safety?
Why Modern Exodus?
In 2020 there are 74 countries that criminalize same-sex sexual contact. In 13 of these countries (Sudan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mauritania, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Qatar, UAE, parts of Nigeria, parts of Somalia, parts of Syria and parts of Iraq) this crime is punishable by death. Additionally, a total of 40 countries retain a 'gay panic' clause which a person can claim as defense for committing crimes against an LGBTQIA+ person. This essentially excuses the assault, rape and murder of an LGBTQIA+ person citing that the actions were provoked due to the victims sexuality.
