“I hope help will be provided in the future”

27.08.2023 | cb — No comments

Munich Kyiv Queer continues 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 Nikita.

Nikita is really grateful for the help he got from the NGO “You are not alone”. He was able to pay his utility bills, to purchase food for his retired parents, he says. VIDEO

“You are not alone” is supported by the German Queere Nothilfe Ukraine (Queer Emergency Aid Ukraine) and Munich Kyiv Queer is one of the 40 LGBTIQ*-organisations in Germany that have united forces to build this alliance one year ago. As you can see and sorry for repeating ourselves: Your donations really help.

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 translating the German and English texts into Ukrainian.

This is how you can donate

INDIVIDUAL HELP Munich Kyiv Queer has its own fundraising campaign via to support queer people in Ukraine who are in need or on the run. Why? Because not all LGBTIQ* are organised in the local LGBTIQ*-groups. This help is direct, fast and free of charge if you choose the option “For friends and family” on PayPal. If you don’t have PayPal, you can alternatively send money to the private account of Conrad Breyer, speaker of Munich Kyiv Queer, IBAN: DE427015000021121454.

All requests from the community are meticulously checked in cooperation with our partner organisations in Ukraine. If they can help themselves, they take over. If the demands for help exceed their (financial and/or material) possibilities, we will step in.

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 like “You are not alone” and use funds for urgently needed care or evacuation of queer people like Nikita. Every donation helps and is used 100 percent to benefit queer people in Ukraine. Donate here
