“You’re doing a useful job”

We as Munich Kyiv Queer continue collecting stories from LGBTIQ* in Ukraine asking them how they live under war circumstances. We want to raise awareness for the situation of this vulnerable social group and mobilize support like donations. This is the story of Vlad.

Vlad and his partner had to flee the city of Kharkiv because their house was partially destroyed in attacks by the Russian army. VIDEO

Now they live in the somewhat quieter area around Poltava further west of their hometown.

Their life is not easy. They have lost their jobs and thus their income. Our alliance, the Queer Emergency Aid Ukraine, was able to help with your donations. THANK YOU!

Thanks to the NGO “You are not alone”, especially Oleksandra Semenova, for carrying out this video project with us. Thanks to Matt and Stas for working on the subtitles. And thanks to Nikita for the Ukrainian translation.

This is how you can donate

INDIVIDUAL HELP Munich Kyiv Queer has its own fundraising campaign via to support people in Ukraine who need help and are not organised in the local LGBTIQ*-groups. We can help fast, directly and unbureaucratically.

HELP FOR LGBTIQ* ORGANISATIONS To support LGBTIQ* in Ukraine we have helped set up the Alliance Queer Emergency Aid Ukraine, in which around 40 German LGBTIQ* Human Rights organisations are involved. 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. Donate here
