Pink Summits for LGBT Visibility

We are a bunch of gay mountaineers attempting to conquer Seven Summits (the highest mountains of respective continents) and to raise rainbow flags on top of each one for the visibility of LGBT.

After we have conquered Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe, and Kosciuszko, we have received a lot of comments and personal messages from Russia and Central Asia full of hate, intimidation, and even death threats!

We want to turn this hate into love: for each hate comment I want to fundraise 1-5 EUR. 50% of it I will spend to LGBT organisations in Central Asia and Russia and 50% towards Pink Summits. The more hate I will document, the more money I will fundraise for LGBT. I will collect all hate on my twitter account.

This campaign will fund some important work done in Central Asia and Russia for LGBT communities as well as it will partially cover costs related to the ascending Kilimanjaro and Aconcagua, the highest mountains in Africa and South America. Overall costs for those trips are around 10.000EUR per person or 30.000EUR for the whole team. We plan to cover the rest with personal funds and with potential sponsors.

We plan to film a documentary about this particular trip and actively share our stories on our website here. Support us in our dream to show the world that badass mountaineers can be also gay and to turn all that hate directed towards us into an important action!
