Massmedia and "Coming out"
Providing the media the objective information about the LGBT-communities of St. Petersburg is one of the activities of LGBT-initiative group "Coming out".
We share with journalists about:
- cases of discrimination against LGBT-people in St. Petersburg (current statistics, scenaries of frequently occuring offenses, intervieus with victims with the consent of the latter);
- trials supported by our initiative (case progress, interim and final court decisions, comments of lawers);
- urgent problems faced by LGBT-people in St. Petersburg (according to statistics from the legal and psychological services of "Coming out").
We help journalists to find heroines and heroes for the preparation of longreads- these are, of course, representatives of LGBT-communities themselves, as well as parents of LGBT-children and rainbow families (LGBT with children). We give media comments on events related to LGBT-communities in Russia and St. Petersburg, including comments from lawers and psychologists working with LGBT-people.
If you represent the media and would like to recieve information regularly from the LGBT-initiative group "Coming out" (press releases, announcements, research results), please subscribe to the newsletter.
