Russian-Speaking American LGBT Group

RUSA LGBT is a network for Russian-speaking LGBTQ individuals, their friends, supporters and loved ones. RUSA LGBT has welcomed many LGBTQ asylum seekers from Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan and other countries of the Former Soviet Union.

RUSA LGBT provides informational support to asylum seekers and organizes social events to increase acceptance and inclusion of LGBTQ people within the Russian-speaking public. We fight for social justice, human and civil rights for LGBTQ people in America and in the Former Soviet Union. RUSA LGBT advocates for justice for asylum seekers and for equality worldwide!

RUSA LGBT was formed in 2008.
