Insta Live – One Year of War, chat with Sibylle von Tiedemann
For those who missed her lecture: Sibylle von Tiedemann, founding member of Munich Kyiv Queer, has recently been to Ukraine to blog about the war, visit our friends and collect donations. She will talk about her trip again on Thursday, 23 February, at 7.30 pm on the Instagram channels of CSD and Munich Kyiv Queer.
In an interview with Frank Zuber from CSD Munich, Sibylle talks about her experiences, about how our friends in Ukraine are doing and how we can help. You can read her BLOG here
LGBTIQ* suffer. Like many others, they have lost their jobs, homes, families and friends, but as a vulnerable group they face particular challenges: They cannot rely on stable family structures, for example, their legal status as a couple/rainbow family is not recognised, they experience discrimination and attacks on a daily basis, to name just a few aspects.
Join us next Thursday when we chat. Comment, ask your questions.
This is how you can help
INDIVIDUAL HELP Munich Kyiv Queer has its own fundraising campaign via www.paypal.me/ConradBreyer 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
HOUSING FOR QUEER REFUGEES FROM UKRAINE LGBTIQ* often have seen discrimination in their lifes, therefore queer refugees are particularly vulnerable. Many are traumatised and now they experience re-traumatisation on the run. We want to offer them a home where they feel comfortable and can live without fear. Depending on availability, we rent two-, three-, four- or five-room flats and sublet them to people in need as shared flats. Our association does not have any funding yet, so we depend on donations. For example, we have to advance rent and deposits until the State’s job centres step in.
