Gay, lesbian and HIV-infected refugees fear violent persecution should they return home. Nairobi, Kenya - Gay, lesbian and HIV-infected refugees from Somalia are facing persecution - and even the threat of death - should they return home. Refugees have been under pressure to leave accommodations in Kenya, where many also face racist discrimination, after claims the country is now significantly safer than when Al-Shabaab had control of Mogadishu. But many gay Somalis say returning is not an option for them.
