Save Rainbow Lives Ukraine

Supporting LGBTQI+ lives impacted by war in Ukraine


Save Rainbow Lives Ukraine is a collaborative project between the Safe Space Alliance and Ukraine-based LGBTQI+ nonprofit HPLGBT that aims to help save LGBTQI+ lives impacted by war in Ukraine.

The bilingual logo (Ukrainian and English) combines the Ukraine’s national flower (the sunflower) with the colours of Ukraine’s national flag (blue and yellow). The central sunflower seeds embody colours from various LGBTQI+ community flags symbolising life, solidarity, and resistance. This logo was developed by Safe Space Alliance Director Shannon Novak in consultation with HPLGBT.

The challenge

Russia has launched a large scale military invasion of Ukraine resulting in a mass exodus of Ukrainian refuges and a rising Ukrainian death toll. With this war, LGBTQI+ people in Ukraine are experiencing increased levels of LGBTQI+ related violence, bullying, and hate speech, and have reduced or no access to life supporting medications.
