With this news item, we wish to pay our respect to Sanjay Ganpat Brouwer, also internally known as, and famous for, 'the rasta man image'. Unfortunately, Sanjay has passed away in his sleep. The man who, as it seems, was not accepted in Suriname for his homosexuality and moved to Amsterdam, where he became an extravagant paradise bird of the city's club scene, is no more. Sanjay was an icon of freedom and the right to be yourself. Sanjay was an IAM4FREEDOM Hero from day one. Sanjay was the first of many impressive images to be linked to the early campaigns of the previous Project Aware period. Sanjay will live on in our communication to spread the word 4FREEDOM, which, now, he not only and immortally embodies but radiates through every pore and poster pixel. Sanjay is all what ALL4FREEDOM stands for and more. May he have found freedom, peace and acceptance. Respect for the man who was himself and who I have always carried with me (and always will) in my wallet, as he so perfectly poses on my business card's backsides.
Initiator and Managing Director
In loving memory - Ganpat Brouwer 1973 - 2016
