As part of its commitment not only to its users and the LGBT community but also to humanity in general, Adam4adam has donated a total of $9,777 to Outright Action International.
OutRight is a global LGBTIQ human rights non-governmental organization (NGO) that helps lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people who experience discrimination, human rights violations, and abuses due to “their actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.”
The organization is based in New York and holds “consultative status and a permanent presence at the United Nations Headquarters, where we advocate for human rights and equality for LGBTIQ people, serve as the secretariat of the UN LGBTI Core Group and act as a watchdog on all 193 world governments.” Read more about OutRight Action International here.
As we are all aware, Russia attacked Ukraine on all fronts: land, water, and air last February 24, 2022.
The dire situation has caused the displacement of Ukrainians. Just a few days after, the attack had already caused over two million people to flee from Ukraine, according to a report made by United Nations. Specifically, there are “at least 1,412,503 refugees in Poland and 214,160 refugees in Hungary” as of March 8 although “data isn’t available on how many refugees are LGBTQ.” Read the report here and here in full.
“We’re all in this together,” says Vince Lem, Adam4Adam’s CEO, on why it is important to help the LGBTQ community get through the Ukraine crisis. “It is imperative that Adam4Adam do its part in the fight and help protect the LGBTQ Ukrainians. Apart from the impacts of war and the need to feel safe, the community faces discrimination, not to mention basic needs like safe housing, medical care, and food.”
Further, Adam4Adam’s CEO is encouraging the A4A community to donate directly to LGBTQ NGOs like the ones shown below to help the LGBTQ people in Ukraine:
Mr. Lem concluded, “As a dating app company, it is our responsibility to do our part and help protect our community.”
