Situation of LGBTQ in Ukraine January – August 2022

Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, the LGBTQ community, in general, has experienced the same problems as the rest of Ukrainian society, although there are also certain complications specific to LGBTQ people. In particular, a new problem related to martial law consists in the repeated cases of improper and discriminatory treatment by representatives of the police, Armed Forces, and Territorial Defense when checking the documents and personal belongings of LGBTQ people at checkpoints and other places, which were often accompanied by violence to LGBTQ people and other violations of their rights.

The situation of the Ukrainian LGBTQ community after the escalation of Russian aggression

The war with Russia, which began in 2014, was a turning point in the development not only of Ukrainian society as a whole, but also of the domestic LGBTQ community. In opposition to the ideology of the Russian World, our society and state began to realize and prove in practice their belonging to modern Europe with its values and principles.
The new stage of Russian aggression has only led to greater unity of the Ukrainian nation, which allows us to hope for rapid progress in our country’s integration into the Free World — in particular, in achieving equality for LGBTQ people who are now defending our common Homeland.
