Patreon report: September

November 06, 2018 2402

Tell About Your Trouble form has been continuously filled. LGBT people in Kazakhstan tell about the difficult conditions they live in. Each such story is valuable, as it is proof of the statement - changes are extremely needed in the country! In many ways, this has become possible thanks to you, those who have been transferring money to the advertising campaign of our project for several months on Patreon website.

Funds received

By October, we managed to raise $198 on Patreon, but received $173,96 (87.63%). The difference is Patreon fee ($9.9, i.е. 5%) and PayPal fee ($14.14, i.е 7.14%). PayPal account eventually credited $ 178.25

Balance from the previous month - $76.

Direct transfers to PayPal - $8,5

Total for the October advertising campaign, we raised $262,75.

Used funds

For the second time, a campaign was launched on VKontakte. Two advertising campaigns were launched: LBT-women, and GBT-men. In total, 14 408 rubles (approximately $ 218) were spent. On account Vkontakte has left 1 361 ₽ (about $20). This amount, as well as the balance on PayPal - $ 8.5, was transferred to November.

Campaign results

For the campaign, the goal "Coverage" was chosen, according to which advertising is shown to one user only once - thus, it is distributed among as many people as possible. Geographical targeting - Kazakhstan.

  • Advertising for LBT-women covered 137 976 people.
  • Advertising for GBT-men covered 261 999 people.

Total - 399 975 people have seen the advertisement of the project Tell About Your Trouble.

Statistics "Tell About Your Trouble"

To date, 53 people have reported cases of discrimination and hate crimes related to sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) - 11 more than in September.

The project Tell About Your Trouble is a tool for monitoring cases of discrimination and hate crimes towards LGBT. Since there is no such legislative in Kazakhstan, there are no statistics, and therefore there are “no crimes”. This is what homophobes and officials say. But the community members’ experience suggest otherwise. Tell About Your Trouble allows people, with whom a disaster has occurred, and who will not go to the police because of fear, at least to report what happened to them. These statistics will become part of the alternative report on human rights in Kazakhstan in 2019, when our officials will report to UN.

You may become our partner. Every dollar increases the coverage of LGBT Kazakhs, which know - even in case of trouble they are not alone. Become our partner on Patreon.
