These Are The Queer Refugees Australia Has Locked Up On A Remote Pacific Island
BuzzFeed News speaks with a 28-year-old who fled his family's efforts to kill him in Iran hoping Australia would protect him. Instead, the country sent him to a place that feels just as dangerous.
By J. Lester Feder, Soudeh Rad

In 2012, Mohsen, who is bisexual and a Christian convert, fled his home in Iran after his uncle hit him with his car and, when he survived, vowed to finish him off.

Mohsen was hoping to take shelter in Australia, but the boat smuggling him to its shores was stopped at sea. Now he is trapped on Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island. He has has twice been beaten by off-duty immigration officers in the past year and is now afraid to leave his room.

Mohsen is one of more than 1,300 asylum seekers that Australia has sent, since 2012, to what is called the Manus Island detention center. It’s a facility for single men and teenage boys; several hundred women and families are being detained 1,300 miles to the east on the island nation of Nauru. They were all captured at sea while trying to reach Australia by boat from Indonesia, under a policy that even the United Nations secretary general has personally pleaded with the Australia’s prime minister to bring to an end.

anonymous asked:

Could you write a solangelo pirate and prince au for us please? Like the pirate captain kidnapped the prince for ransom but it doesn't work out because he had just come out to the king and he had disowned him. That might be confusing, sorry. Love ya!

“It’s not going to work! Haven’t you heard me? They’re not paying money for me!” The prince yelled, his previous composure disappearing with the winds, disappearing with the winds pushing the large ship further from shore.

“Eh! Stop that yelling! Or yer’ll pay for it!” 

“Stop. Both of you.” 

Another pirate stepped up, his voice was dry, his eyes had dark circles around them. He seemed important as the others stepped away as he walked down the center of the group. He looked younger than most of the others, his accent different.

He stopped in front of the prince, looking down at where he was bound on the ground. His eyes flicked to the shine on the prince’s cheek.

To The Sea ~ Closed starter for legolasoflasgalen

Sasha slowly strolled among the trees in the ever thinning forest. It wasn’t men or disease that caused the trees to become more scarce as she walked, but a change in the soil. Gradually as she softly tread the earth, she felt it begin to give way to a more sandy texture. Even the color began to shift from its rich and fertile brown to a more grainy and loose tan. Footprints that were once as clear as day soon became indistinguishable impressions as the trees became more and more scarce. This was no valley Sasha was entering but a sandy coastline.

The wind gently blew Sasha’s hair off of her shoulders and fulled her lungs with its salty sea air. Crying gulls filled the air as waves crashed onto the shores. Sasha stopped in her tracks at the forest’s edge, right where trees turned into beach grass. The song of the sea was enough to put even her into a trance, fore she did not notice the other person standing at the edge of the forest. Instead she closed her eyes and took another deep breath of the near intoxicating sea air as she listened to the it’s melody.
