38. Funny you should mention this

Let me find this story that I read about 2 months ago.

http://www.telesurtv.net/english/news/Germany-Berlin-Nightclubs-Mobilize-to-Help-Refugees-20160515-0040.html

The oldest gay nightclub in Berlin held the second edition of its Refugees Welcome party Sunday, part of a broader initiative in the city's nightlife community to raise money for pro-refugee organizations.

“Many Syrian and Arab refugees reportedly visit the nightclub regularly,” Lcavaliero, the club's art director, told TRAX magazine. He added he could not tell how the refugees would perceive support from the gay community, but emphasized that the fight against homophobia could not be split from the fight against racism.

“I could meet a DJ from Syria who ran away because of his sexual orientation. There were [gay] parties there, it can be surprising but I don't believe it would be a shock for them [refugees],” he added.
