“We want to give a voice to those, who are not heard, whose voice has been taken,” Ali Feruz says. “Because the story of every human is at the same time the story of humankind.” Ali’s new project Unit is ready to launch: a network of journalists and human rights defenders working to increase the quality of reporting on marginalized people that focuses particularly on LGBTQ issues in the countries of the former Soviet Union. At the moment, Unit’s reporters work in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. In many of these countries public attention on such topics is still largely lacking and homophobia and anti-LGBTQ attitudes are widely spread.
