About Lutfi

Syrian refugee Lufti Al-Kaer, who has taken refuge in the United States for about three months, still has the bright, hopeful face of a young man. That’s a bit of a surprise, considering Lufti, 31, was cast away by his family in Syria for being a gay man and was persecuted for years by authorities before winding up in New York. Lufti, 31, shares his story as he cooked a meal for nine guests at a long table set out for the Displaced Dinners, twice-weekly dinners cooked by a refugee. - Metro New York (K. Aquilina)
