Gender Stream is a feminist organization that implements practices of gender equality, inclusion and respect for diversity, promotes the strengthening and development of the LGBTQI+ community. Our team unites Ukrainian and international activists and carries out its activities on the basis of honesty, transparency and responsiveness to the needs of the target audience.
Gender Stream works in partnership with national and international organizations, and also cooperates with the security sector (State Emergency Service, police, border guards), state institutions (mayors, regional administrations, universities), media and business to overcome the challenges faced by people excluded from state processes.
During its work, the organization has conducted more than 100 safe LGBTQI/feminist events and information campaigns in Ukraine.
The full-scale invasion of russia in 2022 increased inequality in Ukrainian society, and socially vulnerable groups found themselves in even more vulnerable conditions. We faced numerous challenges, high levels of public homo-, bi- and transphobia, lack of legislation that would protect us from marriage discrimination and provide equal opportunities in work, health care, housing and other areas of life. Ukrainian authorities still do not have LGBTQI+ friendly programs, and during the invasion this group of people is left out of the attention of state authorities.
In 2022 Gender Stream:
Now part of our team remains in Ukraine, the other part has relocated and works abroad. But despite the distance, we continue to stick together, because this is our superpower!
We continue to work on initiatives aimed at supporting LGBTQI+ Ukrainian men and women, combating domestic and gender-based violence, building an inclusive society where democracy, freedom and diversity are valued. In the near future, we will announce the DniProPride human rights event.
