We are a feminist inclusive organization that unites Ukrainian and international activists into a professional team.

Together, we are moving towards the strengthening and development of the LGBTQI+ community, internal and external security, and the implementation of equal rights.
We are an organization that operates on the principles of transparency, honesty and focuses its work on the needs of the target audience, which is why we are trusted. We work in partnership with Ukrainian and international organizations to respond to the challenges faced by people excluded from state processes.
