Earlier today Rick met with Ariel Shidlo, PhD, psychologist and co-director of The Research Institute Without Walls to discuss Golf Alpha Yankee and its goal to expose the issues that Iranian LGBT asylum seekers face.
The Research Institute Without Walls is an organization that combines human rights, mental health, and LGBT rights. Part of their mission centers on educating asylum judges about the intricacies of LGBT asylum seekers from places such as Iraq, Syria and Iran.
Thank you Dr. Shidlo for your advice and enthusiasm for our film! We're proud to support the efforts of RIWW and look forward to fighting alongside you for the rights of LGBT people from Iran and everywhere!
