The Fifth LGBTQIAPP+ Family Conference was meant to take place in Moscow on 9-11 November, 2018 with the theme “Value of family and partnership. Ethics and politics”. However, due to homophobic threats and attacks the conference did not take place in the shape that it had been planned. Part of the presentations and workshops were held online, while others were openly conducted at other venues.
 
We will press on. We want to go through with the conference fully, presenting every topic and workshop that had been scheduled. We want to respond to the threats, attacks, and political pressure with openness, claiming our truth and boldly speaking out about our values and the respect they deserve.
 
The aim of the conference is to increase the visibility of the LGBTQIAPP+ community, that is why we are open about the venue. We invite a broad range of specialists and members of various families and partnerships. We are open to dialogue and cooperation.
 
The safety of the participants of the conference remains a priority for us, and thus all the rules and measures which had been in place will remain unchanged. However, we are not responsible for the safety of people outside the venue. That is the job of our police, and we will actively involve them in ensuring the security of our events. Safety is our right and it is the government’s responsibility to protect that right, so we will demand it.
 
We are very grateful to our partners, the Goethe Institute in Moscow and the AIDS.Center, for sharing our values, aims, and risks.
 
We invite you to make an informed choice based on free will and to take part in our conference.
The event is free of charge, but donations are welcome!
The event is open to participants 18 years of age and above. Passports will be checked upon arrival.
If you would like to take part in the events on December 16, please present the invitation upon entrance. The invitation will be sent to you when you register for the event.

Direct speech from Yulia Malygina

Hello everyone!

I need your HELP!

I am Head of Resource LGBTKIA Moscow and this year we organize the Fifth LGBTQIAPP Conference in Moscow. The conference goal is to unite LGBT+ Community and psychologists and other people from helping professions to exchange knowledge and experience and get support. A major focus are same-sex parents with children because they are even more vulnerable and unprotected than other groups.

We have around 400 participants every year and held around 20-30 seminars during those three days.It is a unique platform for the whole CIS but this year it is unfortunately left without funding. Thus, we try to gather the money on our own with crowdfunding.

We have already found a place that provides the rooms for free! And we also held a charity concert this weekend to gather some means.

Together we can do more!
