OutRight's Ukraine Fund Impact
“On February 24, OutRight launched a Ukraine Fund because, in times of crisis, LGBTIQ people may face higher risks yet are often left behind or excluded from humanitarian relief efforts. Millions of Ukrainians have fled their homes - and many who have stayed are sheltering in place, with little or no access to running water, power, heating, medical care, or mobile phone service. Activists across the region are also concerned about protecting the rights of LGBTIQ people, since Russia has a long track record of targeting human rights defenders and of state-sponsored homo- and transphobia. In many neighboring countries, governments or politicians have LGBTIQ people’s rights and incited public hostility against them.
OutRight is moved by the global outpouring of support and care for LGBTIQ people in Ukraine and the region. More than 7,200 people from over 75 countries have contributed to OutRight’s Ukraine Fund to date, along with partners such as MacKenzie Scott & Dan Jewett, Ukraine DAO, Together Rising, Google.org, Choose Love Foundation, GiveOut, Capital Group, RELI3F, SumOfUs, Looking Out Foundation, Horizons Foundation, The Giving Block, Grindr 4 Equality, Zalando, Endaoment, Elevate Prize Foundation, Pink News, GoFundMe, Gitcoin, The Bobaverse, Magazine Antidote, Kendo Brands Kares, and countless others. On behalf of all those that benefit from your generosity, we thank you, and we send our deepest gratitude and solidarity to LGBTIQ advocates and organizations in Ukraine and beyond for their strength, courage, and dedication to helping LGBTIQ people survive during this crisis.”
