Today, October 9, Director of KyivPride Ruslana Panukhnyk met with Norwegian Ambassador Ole T. Horpestad. They signed an agreement aimed at raising the capacity in visibility and participation of LGBT + activists, communities and allies in Kyiv, Lviv, Zaporizhya, Dnipro and Zhytomyr as part of a joint project at KyivPride2020.
This project is entitled «Visibility for LGBTI: regional perspective of KyivPride». Its purpose is to create a core of activists in key Ukrainian regions for their ability to implement local pride initiatives. It also aims to strengthen KyivPride as a nationwide platform.
The project was selected under the priority of «Democracy, Human Rights, Tolerance with particular focus on Vulnerable Groups». KyivPryde thanks to Royal Norwegian Embassy in Kyiv for their support and we hope that such joint projects will enhance the changes in the human rights sector in Ukraine and increase the number of people who will support such democratic movements.
