“Acceptance” video for #GenderEquality campaign

ADC Memorial joins the campaign #GenderEquality launched yesterday on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Violence and discrimination affect persons of different genders: there is also Transgender Day of Remembrance in November, when we commemorate victims of transphobic violence. Our animated mini-film “Acceptance” is dedicated to their tragedy and fight against discrimination. Today we remember the transgender people who died in 2020: among them a  transgender woman from Uzbekistan murdered near St. Petersburg, a transgender woman from Kazakhstan killed by a police officer in Siberia, a transgender person from Chelyabinsk who was killed after his gender identity became known to his neighbors.
