Out of fear of her life under Mugabe’s regime in Zimbabwe, Moud Goba fled to the UK. She now helps others in similar situations as well as working within the community. We're thrilled to award Moud one of our inaugural Attitude Pride Awards in tonight's ceremony, in association with Delta Air Lines. Watch Moud tell her incredible story below:
There is no life for LGBT people in Zimbabwe. The very thought of same-sex marriages or unions is unfathomable, and any notion of legal rights inconceivable. Women are pressured into marriages and men beaten or arrested if caught with other men. Moud fled this deeply oppressive situation to start a new life where she dreamed to one day love another woman without fear. After a difficult experience seeking asylum she started a new life in the UK, providing support to others who suffer under similar life-threatening situations and even contributed to her new community by helping set up UK Black Pride.
