What we do

The National LGBTI Consortium #LGBTI_PRO #MSM_PRO is a platform for organisational interaction of Ukrainian civil society leaders working to expand human rights and freedoms, as well as to ensure a decent standard of living and high quality of services.

Our consortium work was launched in 2018 and is based on a Memorandum of Cooperation.

We respect freedom of expression, condemn any form of violence against the human person and support conscious and ethical attitudes in society. The activities of the Consortium are inclusive of all social movements that work for the expansion of human rights and freedoms and for an increase in the level of personal responsibility of citizens.

We believe that the key to a happy and prosperous society is to build adult and partnership relationships between the state and the citizen, as well as among citizens themselves. We respect freedom of conscience and seek constructive dialogue with all participants in the social and political life of the country in order to build mutual understanding and join forces to build and strengthen Ukrainian society.

Rights protection

Equal rights and freedoms

We work with government officials and representatives at all levels of government and use all possible means to integrate into the government decision-making system.

Position of the state

After many years of discussions and delays, the government has finally shown the political will to adopt the draft law on registered civil partnerships. The signatories include both committee chairmen and party leaders. This is a strong signal that the long-awaited partnerships, including for same-sex couples, are not just around the corner, but just over the hill!

Public health

In 2022, the government of Ukraine adopted a new HIV law. It guarantees universal access to HIV services for everyone who is physically present in Ukraine, including people without Ukrainian citizenship and refugees.

The law introduces pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, into the legal framework.

The law introduces self-testing into the legal framework: you can test yourself for HIV - either alone or with the help of a counsellor - and it is as simple as taking your temperature.
