In this photo taken Thursday, June 11, 2020, Martin Okello looks out of the window in the house he shares with other Ugandan LGBT refugees in Nairobi, Kenya. He and other members of the LGBT community in East Africa face discrimination that has forced many to flee their home countries for Kenya, which has become a haven for them. It is the only East African nation where someone can seek asylum and be registered as a refugee based on their LGBT status. Yet even in Kenya, they can be encounter discrimination and violence, and the country still criminalizes gay sex. (AP Photo/Brian Inganga)
