Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow of the LGBTQI+ Movement in Azerbaijan

As the Nafas LGBT Alliance, we continue our “Justice and Protection for Everyone!” campaign with our podcast during the week of May 17th. Our volunteer Rza and queer activists Cavid Nəbiyev and Əli Məlikov have prepared an episode together.

Listen and share our discussion that covers the history of the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia in Azerbaijan, LGBTQI+ activism today, our past, and our future expectations. We also talked about the history of Nafas LGBTI in our episode. 

Oh hi there 👋
