We were recognized as foreign agents

Over the past three months, your support enabled us to hire a professional journalist and to pay to our authors. Over this period, we posted 115 publications on the website. Out of them, there were 34 original features, 17 translated pieces and 64 news reports.

 

As part of the informational campaign, we are to post 28 publications on the main topic of the campaign — 26 original pieces and 2 news articles. As of the time of this report, the publications on the website were viewed by 516 thousand unique visitors.

 

We prepared a lot of articles on LGBT activism in Russia and explored the tools for HIV prevention, highlighting the vulnerability of LGBT people in the face of HIV epidemic. We also posted content on availability and accessibility of ARV treatment and its importance for the U=U concept.

 

We also got in trouble with the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation which recognized our Phoenix PLUS organization as a foreign agent. Under the Russian legislation, a non-profit organization can be recognized as a “foreign agent” for as little as receiving foreign funding and being engaged in so-called political activity. The Ministry of Justice saw our “political activity” in the articles on the Parni PLUS [Guys PLUS] portal. The examples of “political” publications included those dedicated to HIV prevention among men who have sex with men in Russia and what needs to be done to make such prevention efforts more effective.

 

Being a “foreign agent” for us is like having a quality mark, a mark of distinction, a business card of a person who thinks freely in a non-free country. However, this mark complicates our work significantly, so we really hope for your support and rely on it in the future.
