Considered to be a safe haven for LGBTQ+ people, Canada is the promised land for persecuted queer individuals from oppressive countries. Zdravko Cimbaljevic from Montenegro, Moe Sonko from The Gambia, and Tanaz Mehraban from Iran moved to Canada to create a new life for themselves. But often claimants break immigration laws to get there, which ends with them being thrown into provincial prisons. On their way to a new life, watch them tackle barriers of language, loneliness, and litigation all just to live with their heads held high.
