KyivPride presents LGBT-friendly Kyiv City Map
Tolerant and inclusive society contributes to the business’s development and countries’ economic growth. Such society guaranties their workers a comfortable feeling at their work place, and as for the product or service consumers, they buy not simply a product, but also company’s values.
Anticipating the Eurovision, non-government organization KyivPride has prepared a Map of friendly places to lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and intersex people. These are restaurants, cafés, shops and clubs in Kyiv, this year's host city for an international song contest.
The friendly places map is made for the comfort of Eurovision guests in English and has both an online and an off-line form.
The Map have joined restaurants and coffee shops, such as: Druzi café, Trattoria Pesto Azzurro, Club-café Cupid, PR-bar, Rozumna Kava (Smart Coffee), Boulangerie, Harms, One love coffee, Ostannia Barykada (Last bariccade) and other Dima Borysove's restaurants. Shops: Vsi Svoi, LUSH, Thrift store 'Laska', Vikno u dvir (Window into the yard), Galerie and others,
The Map stays open for the bigger business that shares the values of non-discrimination and respect for the human rights. If you would like to join, pleas fill out the application form.
You can also download the sticker "We are friendly" at KyivPride website for free and distribute it at your establishment.
The initiative has been supported by Coalition for Combatting the Discrimination in Ukraine and International Foundation 'Renaissance'
As you can remember, in July 2017 will take place the biggest and most visible LGBTI event of the year - KyivPride2017 and March of Equality. During KyivPride the business breakfast for inclusive companies will be organized at British Council Ukraine. Progressive companies, which provide politics of equality and their work place will share their experience. If you would like to take part, please fill out the application form.
