Our friends need help! Many cities in Ukraine are under attack. We provide emergency aid for people who have to flee or are in need. There is a lack of everything!

We also support LGBTIQ* organisations in Ukraine that are still working.

Under the most adverse conditions, some of them operate shelters where lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, inter* and queer people find permanent accommodation, food and medical care.

Fundraising campaign 1: Individual help

Munich Kyiv Queer has its own fundraising campaign via www.paypal.me/ConradBreyer to support people in Ukraine with whom we have worked closely over the past ten years. They are our friends and partners. We know them personally and we miss them.

However, Munich Kyiv Queer is an initiative group, not an association, which is why we cannot issue a donation receipt. But we can help fast, directly and unbureaucratically. And we are already doing that.

Fundraising campaign 2: Help for LGBTIQ* organisations

To support LGBTIQ* in Ukraine we have helped set up the Alliance Queer Emergency Aid Ukraine , in which many German LGBTIQ* Human Rights organisations are involved, such as the LSVD, Quarteera, WostoQ-Regenbogen, Queer Amnesty, Deutsche Aids-Hilfe, Trans*Recht, Aktionsbündnis gegen Homophobie, Schwulenberatung Berlin, AllOut and Munich Kyiv Queer itself.

All these groups have access to very different Human Rights organisations in Ukraine and use funds for urgently needed care or evacuation of queer people. Every donation helps and is used 100 percent to benefit queer people in Ukraine. You can also get donation receipts. Donate her

Your donations really help

You may understand by yourself that your money is well invested. LGBTIQ* organisations we cooperate with and people affected regularly send us reports on what they use donations for:

What is the situation?

Many LGBTIQ* are afraid of Putin’s army. You may have heard about the so called killings lists that the Russian government is supposed to keep about what they consider to be opponents. If this is true, it should also include prominent Human Rights’ and LGBTIQ* activists.

Once the Russian army has taken the cities, they fear, the occupiers could take action against them. Activists are already reporting attacks. They all are afraid of a second Chechnya and are therefore hiding or leaving the country.

Men and trans* persons read as men are particularly affected. If they are between 18 and 60 years old, they are currently not allowed to leave Ukraine due to the general mobilisation.

Vulnerable groups like LGBTIQ* are particularly at risk at all times – especially during a war.
