Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan at the end of August, the persecution of the country’s LGBT+ community has increased substantially, driving many to live in hiding, fearing for their lives. “We now know for sure the Taliban has a ‘kill list,’” said the head of the Rainbow Railroad, a Canadian NGO helping Afghans to escape into exile.
