Even before the Russian invasion began, it became clear that there is a "death list" with the names of activists. The list also includes names of those who work for equal rights for the LGBTI+ community in Ukraine. It is precisely these courageous activists who have ensured a positive development in the emancipation of LGBTI+ Ukrainians in recent years: Kyiv Pride grew steadily, despite much opposition.
The safety of Ukrainian LGBTI+ people is more uncertain than ever since the Russian invasion. OUTtv has compiled a list of organisations that you can support:
