The number of donations becomes less and, in principle, this is normal. Yet, we want as many Kazakh LGBT people as possible to know that they are not alone. Please tell us about your experience in supporting the Tell About Your Trouble project to those for whom this could also be important. Even one dollar a month is a guarantee of the stability of the project. Many thanks to all past, present and future patrons!
In February, $ 120.93 was transferred to Patreon for the Tell About Your Trouble project.
In addition, $ 10 was transferred to support the editors of Kok.team.
Two advertising campaigns of February.
We launched a campaign in VKontakte using the amount of 2115 rubles ($ 32), thanks to which the announcement was shown to 29,367 people participating Kazakhstani LGBT publics/groups.
A campaign in the amount of $ 179.68 was launched on Facebook - the ad was shown 127,219 times among the Kazakhstani user segment.
Total was spent $ 211.68. It was spent more than donations received due to incorrect budget settings on Facebook. The difference will be covered from next month.
Statistics Tell About Your Trouble
In February, the form was filled with 11 real cases.
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.
