The New Apartheid

SAIH: The New Apartheid

This is the new yearly campaign from SAIH, the Norwegian Students’ and Academics’ International Assistance Fund (Studentenes og Akademikernes Internasjonale Hjelpefond).
It is about discrimination against LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people).
Homosexuality is illegal in more than 80 countries in the world, and seven countries have death penalty. In schools and Universities worldwide, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth (LGBT) experience discrimination. They are harassed and exposed to violence.

The widespread discrimination against LGBT pushes them out of educational institutions or forces them to live in hiding and fear. Both students and academics experience discrimination because of sexual orientation or gender expression.
