“FtM Phoenix” Group

“FtM Phoenix” is an initiative led by trans* men which advocates for medical rights and interests of trans* people in Russia and Eurasia.

With their project ‘Trans Advance’ they set up trans* peer support groups in the region of Krasnodar Krai in the South-West of Russia. These groups focus on community building and forming trans-straight alliances. As a part of the project’s activities a summer camp for trans* people was organized.

This project was carried out in close cooperation with LGBT movement “Revers”.
