Success Johnson and Diana Namusoke will stay!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 75,000!


Hello, my name is Success Johnson and I escaped from my country of origin Nigeria because I am persecuted there as a lesbian woman. Now the Federal Office of Migration and Refugees has rejected my second asylum application and wants to deport me to Nigeria! There I have to fear for my life!

Diana Namusoke is in the same situation as me. She is also supported by the lesbian councelling center LeTRa in Munich and has just received her final rejection.

The Federal Office doesn't believe us that we are lesbian. Right now, I am single, but in Dianas case even her partner would be ready to testify for her as a witness. Now I am in the danger to be deported to Nigeria and Diana to Uganda.

Both are countries where lesbians, gays, queers, trans- and inter*people have to fear for their lives. We are expelled from the societies in which we grew up. The governments of our countries of origin do not protect us. On the contrary, in some Nigerian states the death penalty is based on homosexuality, in Uganda people like us are imprisoned and abused. More information on LGBTIQs in escape can be found in this petition:

After all what we have experienced, it is not easy for us to talk about our homosexuality. When we came to Europe, we also had little information about what this is like and whom we can trust. After 11 years of escape I just want to arrive, find a partner and live a life in freedom and without fear. Diana and her friend want to get married.

Therefore Diana and I demand in co-operation with the lesbian councelling center LeTRa an immediate stop of our deportations!
