Support Coming Out

Dear friends!

Since 2008, Coming Out works for universal recognition of human dignity and equal rights of all regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Our work is possible thanks to the support of international human rights funders, selfless work of dozens of volunteers, as well as private sponsorship from people all over the world who believe that human rights, including LGBT rights, are a universal value.

Today, Coming Out, other LGBT organizations, and LGBT citizens of Russia are facing increased pressures and growing homophobic aggression, discrimination, and violence. Aside from the psychological pressure and stress that the LGBT community now faces, aggression and violence from nationalist, radical Orthodox and other groups is on the rise. LGBT are not considered by the courts as a social group; as a consequence, crimes against LGBT people are not qualified as hate crimes or investigated properly, and violence is often done with impunity.

You can help “Coming Out” to continue our work in St. Petersburg – providing free of charge psychological and legal counseling for LGBTQ people, raising awareness of society about LGBT human rights, publishing brochures and books on coming out, feminism, transsexuality, peer-to-peer support groups for LGBTQ people who are or plan to be parents, running a community center and much more.

Thank you for your solidarity!

Dear friends!

Since 2008, Coming Out works for universal recognition of human dignity and equal rights of all regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. We are a non-profit organization, and all the services we provide are free of charge. This is possible thanks to the support of international human rights funders, selfless work of dozens of volunteers, as well as private donations from people all over the world who believe that human rights, including LGBT rights, are a universal value.

Today, Coming Out, other LGBT organizations, and LGBT citizens of Russia are facing increased pressures and growing homophobic aggression, discrimination, and violence.

In June 2013 LGBT organization “Coming Out” was fined 20,000 EURO for being a so-called “foreign agent”. In the same month, a federal law banning so-called “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations”, former “propaganda of homosexuality” law came into force. Aside from the psychological pressure and stress that the LGBTQ community now faces, aggression and violence from nationalist, radical Orthodox and other groups has clearly grown, with participants of peaceful LGBT rights manifestations attacked with impunity.

 

Your donation will help “Coming Out” to continue our work in St. Petersburg – providing free of charge psychological and legal counseling for LGBTQ people, raising awareness of society about LGBT human rights, publishing brochures and books on coming out, feminism, transsexuality, peer-to-peer support groups for LGBTQ people who are or plan to be parents, running a community center and much more.

 

Thank you for your solidarity!
