Safe Space in Chernivtsi
The organizers of the project in Chernivtsi, LGBT-activists, have been actively educating and informing the city on LGBT-community issues over the past year. After the film "This is gay propaganda" was disrupted, it was showed that Chernivtsi is not tolerant to all, and security issues today are more relevant than ever.
Round tables with city authorities and the public sector, trainings on tolerance and non-discrimination for patrol police and personal experience of organizers confirm once again - people are afraid of what they do not know or do not understand, and changes are possible if they work. If the LGBT community can, without fear of rejection, be open to society, it will be able to find out - these people are, and essentially, no different from others. The effectiveness of the work done by LGBT activists has shown that Chernivtsi is ready to be fully tolerant of the word.
