Around the world, huge strides have been taken towards equality, acceptance and support of LGBTQ+ people.
However, there are still 71 countries which criminalise LGBTQ+ people in some way, with 12 countries having the death penalty for same sex ‘activity’.To highlight this, we are launching ‘Mission 71’ our sponsored fundraiser where people are asked to create themselves a mission to complete based around the number 71. This will be a key funding event for Liberate Guernsey and will happen every two years when Pride is hosted in Guernsey. We hope that one day we will launch Mission 0 = Mission Accomplished!
There are two different sponsorship forms below. One saying “because I’m illegal in 71 countries”, the other saying “because LGBTQ+ is illegal in 71 countries”. Either can be used.
