Video: A gay Sri Lankan migrant story

Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services is a community health centre in Toronto, working to improve health outcomes for the most vulnerable immigrants, refugees, and their communities.

Ranjith Kulatilake, an immigrant from Sri Lanka, has been a volunteer at the Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services for the past five years. He is a founding member of "Among Friends", a three-year initiative to improve access to public services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) refugees and immigrants in Toronto.

Ranjith's story describes his journey as a new immigrant to Canada after fleeing his home country due to sexual persecution. It is a story about building new friendships amongst others facing similar challenges and dealing with the stigma of homosexuality within his community.
