“You have never rejected me”

01.08.2023 | cb — No comments

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 Daria.

The war forced Daria to move from Zaporizhzhia, which is attacked nearly daily, to Kharkiv. But she had no job, no income and therefore had to look out for help. VIDEO

She found it thanks to the organization “You are not alone”, based in Zhytomyr. Due to the funds of the German Queere Nothilfe Ukraine (Queer Emergency Aid), partly your donations, they were able to support Daria. She needs money to buy food, hygienic products and to pay the rent.

Daria is very grateful. “They never once refused me”, she says. Thanks for your help, dear friends!

We are very grateful 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
