As the situation continues to unfold in Ukraine, we at OutRight have started to receive the first requests for support from LGBTIQ organizations which are preparing to receive LGBTIQ people in search of shelter, safety and security.
Already, people are leaving Ukraine's capital Kyiv and the eastern part of the country for, at the moment, safer rural areas and the western parts of the country, while neighboring EU countries work to prepare shelters for an influx of displaced people.
As we know all too well, in times of crisis, LGBTIQ people who are already marginalized face higher risks and cannot count automatically on access to humanitarian and/or social assistance.
That's why we need your urgent support today.
So together in solidarity, let's give our community some sense of hope and help, by providing the funds they need to survive, and the resilience they need to thrive.
OutRight works at the international, regional and national levels to research, document, defend, and advance human rights for LGBTIQ people around the world. We partner directly with human rights defenders, allies and organizations to produce reliable data on the experiences of LGBTIQ people around the world, and support research-based advocacy and capacity-building to promote the human rights LGBTIQ people everywhere.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
