“They damaged my house”

25.08.2023 | 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 Tatyana.

Tatyana shows us what the war has done to her house. You can see the damages the shelling of the Russian army has caused. And they have not repaired it yet to show the world and spread the message: We do not give up! We will not forget! VIDEO

The NGO “You are not alone” from Zhytomyr provided Tatyana with certificates for food and hygienic articles.

“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: Your donations really help. Tatyana is very grateful!

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