Since our first interview with Aderonke a year ago, she has continued to campaign tirelessly for her cause, amassing over 33,ooo petition signatures and hundreds of supporters. She has supported others’ campaigns and was awarded the Positive Role Model for LGBT National Diversity Awards 2014.

“Your support over this period of my campaigning to remain safe in the UK has been enormous and unflinching. Sadly, there’s still a hurdle to cross.” Aderonke

Now is the time to collectively support Aderonke. Stand in solidarity with her as she fights for her right to be safe and not be sent back to her birth country Nigeria which will not provide safety for people from the LGBT communities. To reject institutional and structural racism and homophobia.

Come out and support Aderonke on the day:  Meet at the main court arches on the Strand, by the zebra crossing (https://goo.gl/maps/Lhljl). At the Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, WC2A 2LL.
