THE STORY:

Dear friends! I talk to you on behalf of the Russian LGBT Network’s Council. The Russian LGBT Network is an interregional, non-governmental human rights organization that promotes equal rights and respect for human dignity, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. We unite and develop regional initiatives, advocacy groups (at both national and international levels), and provide social and legal services. This year, the Network celebrates its 10th Anniversary, and the main celebrations will take place at the Annual Forum for LGBT Activists in November 2016. Usually, our Forum gathers around 100 people, but this year we intend to gather 200 activist from all parts of Russia. Why it is so important for us? Because the political situation in Russia remain difficult and homophobic hate crimes and discrimination are getting more and more habitual. At the same time, the government adopted numerous laws that makes it hard for LGBT organization to carry out its everyday activities. However, we are not going to give up! We want to support LGBT activists in this situation. If we will manage to take them to the Forum, we will share with them knowledge and experience of many great specialist working with us, and provide them with skills and instruments to protect their rights. Moreover, we want to show them that together we can resist homophobic tendencies in the Russian society. All the money collected will be used to support transportation and accommodation of the LGBT-activists from all over Russia. We are truly grateful for every donation. Tatiana Vinnichenko, Chairperson of the Russian LGBT Network
