We offer a variety of events on the Pride weekend of July 15/16. It’s a celebration of life while in Ukraine r*ssia tries to destroy the way we love, everything we live for. Let’s sing and dance, let’s discuss and commemorate. Let’s march! Stand with Ukraine!

Friday, 15th of July

We will host the Love Wins – Charity Party for LGBTIQ* in Ukraine in the Lesbian-queer Community Centre LeZ on Friday, 15th of July. We start with a discussion at 17.00 on the panel facing the questions: “Queer friends in Ukraine, how are you? How can we help? And what are the perspectives for LGBTIQ* after the war?”

Celebration of diversity

Guests on the panel are: Olena Hanich, Gay Alliance Ukraine, Zhenia Kvasnevska, Queer Home Odesa, OdesaPride, Polina, trans* person from Kyiv, now Munich.

Before and after will sing Olha Rubtsova, Nikita Volkov, Iris Song and Viriena. Behind the turntables: DJane Nastya Zasobina, Odesa, now Munich. At 22.00 we will offer a Drag Performance by Merritt Ocracy.
