Ayodeji is a gay man from Nigeria who was able to secure asylum with the help of the African Services Committee. “As a young man, I always imagined what if feels like on the other side where you’re not judged or condemned for being different, where who you love doesn’t make you get hurt… that’s why I decided to relocate to the United States—to live my life without worrying what will happen to me just because I chose to love differently.”
