Hello all.
Asking for your help.
I live in the Russian Federation,two months ago I was fired because I'm gay. At work I no longer take. A month ago, I was beaten much because I'm gay. I came out of the club, where I met the guys and was beaten up,took the documents and threatened that they would find and kill. I had to leave my village, I live in a small town, no documents do not take to restore the passport you need to pay a fine, but almost no money left...
I really want to leave Russia appealed to the German lawyer and he told me that helps but for the money,and my money and no. Helps me my friend from Russia, but not all the problems can, and he himself solve it. He has a guy and they want to leave Russia. It helps,but not everything can solve it.
The other day I want to move in with him to Moscow. They will help with obtaining a passport and passport for moving from Russia. Live here anymore, I'm afraid completely kill, the parents want to move to another city, they constantly afraid.
Please help. I'm afraid that can't manage. I please help us collect the money to pay the lawyer and his work. I don't want to seem like a beggar, I have no other chance to save yourself. Pay a lawyer and the extra money I will not take, I will post back. I don't want to use their profits from the money, I ask for a little help for me.
Please do not leave in trouble.
I can give the card number of a friend, I don't have this, it helps me. In future I want to be useful to people, learn and help the Russian gays as I do.
Thanks to all who are not indifferent to the problem...

Who I am... Who I was... and waht i had could become...

If I write it:
You ´ll not belive it.

If I try to explain:
Some can´t even hear me.

If I would just tell what i can:
Some hate, some are jelouse, some ´ll only thry to dis to feeling better.

If I love:
There is apollibility to grow...

So all want to dis the Masters, and beliving beeing Batchelor you knew all better...
Have you ever think about, that with all the hate and disses; The Masters have no more intension to form develop and cultivate a aprendist... And two aprendist are just thinking to beware the right and position, fighting eatch other, so that they maybe have definitly lost, the agility to symbiosis, witch is the highest step for an aprendist, to aknowledge, that even when he is bacame a Master, it is just the next level in a challange to learn an grow in agility and intellect...

SO while all have had so mutch fun, dissing the outsiders, is here someone who is able to be...
Friend, symbiosed trainee and learn partner, and maybe can be like a gently teen while making friendly bodycontact?

And so carreers had been destroied, chances lost, future developments sloved down for decades, ....

WHY ?

My story is very simple: now we have for the first time in our lifes a president in the USA that speaks openly and personally accept gay marriage. Thousands of conservative people including the religious are moving against him in order to destroy him and his courage. What are we doing? What are we all gays and lesbians and bisexuals and transgenders are doing to support him? what? Why not take the chance! Gays of the world, please stand UP!

Press Release: Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation Established Release Date 10/11/2011 Upon the establishment of the Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation, Federal Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger states: With Jörg Litwinschuh, the Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation now has a face. The foundation can begin with its work. The research and education program of the new foundation will make an important contribution toward openness in society. In an open society, there must be no discrimination against people with different lifestyles. With the aim of eliminating discrimination and establishing equal status for people with homosexual lifestyles, the federal government is standing behind the work that the Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation is now actually commencing. Background: Today, Federal Justice Minister Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger appointed the communications consultant Jörg Litwinschuh as Chair of the new Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation. The former managing director of the Lesbian and Gay Association in Germany LSVD Berlin-Brandenburg and former head of its Integration and Migration Center comes from the Saarland. The Magnus Hirschfeld Federal Foundation is established under civil law as an independent foundation, and is based in Berlin. It has been granted an endowment of € 10 million. The statute provides the Chair with a fixed term of five years. Members of the Board of Trustees are nominated from the German Bundestag, five federal ministries and other members of civil society organizations. Through its education and research program, the new foundation is meant to counteract social discrimination against homosexual men and women in Germany. The injustices committed by the Nazis against homosexuals should be historically processed and documented. In addition, the life and work of the foundation's namesake Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld (1868-1935) is to be scientifically researched and presented. The Berlin physician and sexologist was a pioneer of the gay rights movement and also dealt with issues of transgender and intersex. http://www.mh-stiftung.de

LGBTI rights are human rights

Useful information about LSVD's human rights foundation, the Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation

Through international networking and cooperation with partner organizations in the Global South and Eastern Europe, the Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation provides direct assistance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexual (LGBTI) people being threatened.

We support national and international LGBTI-Human-Rights-Campaigns by providing information, raising public awareness and building alliances. We constantly work to convince those responsible for foreign policy, development cooperation and human rights policy. We support the work of human rights advocates and promote campaigns against homophobia and prosecution.

The Hirschfeld-Eddy-Foundation was founded in 2007 as the human rights foundation of the Lesbian and Gay Federation, Germany.
