Moscow LGBT Initiative Group «Stimul» is a non-governmental human rights organization established in 2015 to fight for equal rights and to ensure human dignity, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation, through educating the LGBT community on legal issues, advocacy and research work, as well as assisting the victims of discrimination and rights violations on the grounds of SOGI.
We are a human rights organization.
We are not fighting for power and are not involved with any political activity
We believe that human rights are the highest value, and we consider it necessary to ensure their observance by any authority.
We are certain that everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, sex, race, nationality, age, religious affiliation, and other characteristics, should be respected. We think that diversity makes the world we live in a beautiful place, while hate, on the contrary, is harmful for the world and for the people living in it.
We are striving to build a society in which all people would be able to live freely and openly, without fearing for themselves and not feeling fright and hate towards those who are different from them, and we want to live in a society like that.
