Meet the Ukrainian activist providing hormone therapy to the trans community from her Kyiv apartment

03/12/2023 | Insider

Anastasiia Yeva Domani has lived in Kyiv for her entire life and never plans to move. She is familiar face to many in the trans community in Ukraine, so she used this to her advantage when the war broke out. Domani’s apartment is now not only a place to socialize, but also a makeshift space that provides crucial gender-affirming medical care that has been particularly tough to access after Russia’s troops invaded the country. As the director of Cohort — an organization offering support and financial, medical, and legal assistance to transgender people in Ukraine — Domani and her team shifted their activist work. Primarily an organization doing advocacy projects and events for the community, the 12-person team also began providing humanitarian aid when Russia invaded Ukraine over a year ago.
