A Prince in Cape Town: Being a young LGBT asylum seeker

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT) are often forced to flee their home country to escape discrimination and violence, only to face an uncertain future as undocumented migrants with no access to healthcare services.

Prince January shares his journey from Zimbabwe to Cape Town and his message of hope for the future.
