help queer people feel safer in russia.
Even today.

Anti-LGBT laws in Russia had a big impact this last year: there’s an increase in homophobia throughout the country, members of the community are experiencing more problems accessing government services, and even close friends and family are reported to have become less supportive.


The Russian state keeps attacking – but we don’t back down. Ongoing threats and legislation can’t stop us from protecting the Russian Queer community. 


Because of this increased repression, we’re expecting the requests for our legal support in particular to almost double this year. And there’s no way we can help everyone without your support! So please support us in funding the work of our lawyers, so every queer person who asks for help will have a friendly defender by their side.
