“The idea is to donate the money raised to the LGBTQI+ community in Ukraine. We want to offer solidarity and a stage for activists and cultural queer actions from Ukraine and beyond. We are in direct contact with queer people: some of them are still in Ukraine and some others have been able to move to neighbor countries. Some are also on the run” – said the initiators of the fundraiser “soli-kino” in an official statement.
