Solidarity with LGBTQI+ Youth of Slovakia

Advocates for Youth supports the rights of all young people in Slovakia and around the world to live free from discrimination, violence, and fear. 

We are mourning the recent murders of two members of the LGBTQI+ community at the LGBT+ bar, Tepláreň, in Slovakia’s capital of Bratislava. Advocates for Youth stands in solidarity with the brave young people fighting for LGBTQI+ rights and acceptance while protesting against these violent hate crimes.

As expressed by an Advocates’ partner in Slovakia, “This is not an individual tragedy. This pains the community, all the queer people, activists, and allies who have steadfastly fought alongside us for a long time.”
