The main goal was to increase the visibility of this group and of the issues they have to deal with. It’s a taboo to speak about gays in Russia because of the ‘Russian gay propaganda’ law, which is a real danger for queer people and literally ruins people’s lives.
2 years ago, we participated in the Nevinovata (Not to blame) feminist festival. We also regularly support the Nasiliu (No to Violence) foundation and the Consortium of Women's NGOs, providing lawyers to victims of domestic violence for free. On the fourteenth of February 2020, we launched the I Love Myself
project in collaboration with the photographer Emmie America and journalist Sima Piterskaia.
It consisted of three visual stories and interview queer people, who talked about their experience of self-acceptance and self-acceptance in a society where the 'gay propaganda law' exists. The ('Cunt') t-shirt created in collaboration with Pussy Riot and @9cyka
became a symbol of feminism in Russia.
