Patreon Report: March & April

May 06, 2019 168

Dear partners!

This time report includes data on March & April campaigns.

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 your 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!

Used Funds

March Campaign

We launched a campaign in VKontakte using the amount of 3,001 rubles ($ 46). The announcement was shown to 42,649 people participating Kazakhstani LGBT publics/groups.

April Campaign

We launched a campaign in Facebook using the amount of $ 99.65. The announcement was shown 127,219 times among the Kazakhstani user segment.

Totally $ 145.65 were spent.

The balance is $ 28.50.

The shortage is due to cover of budget over expenditure caused by incorrect settings on Facebook. For more details, please, see the February Report.

Tell About Your Trouble Statistics

In Merch & April, the form was filled with 22 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 official 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.
