International Family Equality Day in Krasnodar and Rostov-on-Don

On May 6, the Krasnodar LGBT social movement “Revers” celebrated the International Family Equality Day, which is celebrated in more than 30 countries around the world every year since 2012.

In Krasnodar, we conducted a flashmob with posters and inscriptions dedicated to the International Family Equality Day. After that, we watched a film about how different families can be, and that they are all valuable and equal. Then a discussion was organized about the diversity of families, the difficulties faced by LGBT families. A pleasant end to our holiday was the art therapy “I and my family” about the relationship in the family, the distribution of roles, and the personal sympathies. We all had pleasant emotions and impressions, and some people discovered a lot of new things.
Activists and supporters of the Krasnodar LGBT social movement “Revers” in Rostov-on-Don celebrated this day with photos with placards on the equality of families in different languages, expressing support for LGBT families all around the world. An event called the “Living Library” was held, the goal of which was to help absolutely different people reach mutual understanding and get rid of prejudices against surrounding people and, possibly, learn something new about themselves.
