When the full-scale invasion of the russian federation into Ukraine began, on February 24, my mother and I woke up to sirens and loud explosions. We lived in Kharkiv, my mother was completely bedridden at the time, she had fractured her femoral neck before that. I took her to Uzhhorod, where the people from Gender Steam helped us a lot. We were provided with housing, they helped me draw up all the necessary documents for going abroad, since I am a transgender woman, and I still had gender M in my passport. My mother and I are very grateful to all the people who helped us in such a difficult time, if not these people, I would have already lost my mother because she needed an urgent operation. This organization helped us with transport, and we left for Germany in March. Many thanks to everyone from the Gender Stream organization.
