Everyone has a right to be who they are, regardless of which country they were born. This is why we're raising funds for Russian trans community. The funds will be passed to T-Action, a Russian charity which runs a community center and support groups for trans people, and works with medical and legal institutions, job centres and the media fighting for trans equality. T-Action is the largest trans led, community-based initiative in Russia founded in 2014. Core team of T-Action consist of 12 people: 10 trans people + 2 cis-allies. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, THEY HAVE LOST ALMOST ALL FUNDING FOR 2021 – and need help to continue their crucial work.
“Being trans in Russia, the greatest difficulty is to stop yourself from feeling less than human – like an abnormality. Every day, in your thoughts and actions, you have to remind yourself: I am a trans person and it’s normal, I am human, being trans doesn’t make me better or worse. I exist, we exist – deal with it,” said Russian trans activist Kate Messorosh.
As LGBTQI+ people worldwide, we should stand in solidarity with our oppressed peers and siblings. No one is free and equal until we all are free and equal in every country of the world.
With the currency conversion, even a small donation like £5 or £10 can go a long way in Russia!
With endless gratitude, queer love and solidarity,
Anastasiia Fedorova and the team of Russian Queer Revolution
