Members of the African diaspora LGBTI rights organization Out and Proud Diamond Group took part in Birmingham

The diaspora African LGBTI activists of Out and Proud Diamond Group appealed for justice and LGBTI rights in their home countries as they took part in the Pride celebration in Birmingham, United Kingdom, on May 28-29. The organization issued this press release (modestly edited here).
