Letter from a South American detainee
Author DDH identifies himself as a "gay young man" who has citizenship in one country, lived in another, and emigrated to a third to escape persecution for his political views. However, in the third country he was persecuted for being gay and bears the scars from torture. Forced to flee again, he believes he is close to receiving parole but needs someone to photograph his scars and to translate his documents of proof into English. He attaches a set of U.S. immigration documents, which will be retained in the offline archive, but not published online.
