2017 Holiday Charity Bundle
Each year, Riptide Publishing releases a holiday collection in support of an LGBTQ charity. Twenty percent of the proceeds from this year’s collection will be donated to the Russian LGBT Network.
The Russian LGBT network was founded in April 2006. It is an interregional, non-governmental human rights organization that promotes equal rights and respect for human dignity, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. They unite and develop regional initiatives, advocacy groups (at both national and international levels), and provide social and legal services.
To learn more about this charity or to donate directly, please visit their website: https://lgbtnet.org/en.
This collection would not be possible without the talent and generosity of its authors, who have brought us the following holiday stories:
- Cecilia Tan, Watch Point, releasing November 6, 2017
- Katie Porter, Came Upon a Midnight Clear, releasing November 20, 2017
- Roan Parrish, The Remaking of Corbin Wale, releasing November 27, 2017
Pre-ordering this collection will allow you to download each story two days prior to its official release date, as well as save 20% off the list price of the individual books.
A statement from the Russian LGBT Network:
The Russian LGBT Network is an interregional social movement that unites various LGBTQI(+) initiatives across Russia. In the headquarters in St. Petersburg a team of fifteen activists work every day to promote human rights, to fight inequality in Russia, and to build a strong and powerful community of LGBTQI(+) activists and their allies.
The Network provides various services to the community: we offer psychological and legal assistance to the people in need. Our Hotline services – land line and on-line chat – function 24 hours a day and provide assistance to LGBTQI(+) people in need across all 11 time zones in Russia.
The Network also provide Emergency assistance to the LGBTQI(+) people, who suffer persecution and prosecution, who find themselves in dangerous situations and fear for their lives and wellbeing.
In April, the world became aware of the fact that LGBT people in the Chechen Republic are being persecuted, unlawfully detained, tortured and killed. We, the team of the Russian LGBT Network, have been working hard to help these people to flee the republic, to restore their feeling of safety and security, and to find sanctuary outside of Russia. It has been especially hard since both Russian and Chechen authorities have continued to deny that this crime against humanity is happening in the North Caucasus. They need to hear our voices. They have to.
We are immensely honored that Riptide Publishing selected us as their Holiday Charity. Our philosophy is that human right defenders and the civil society are capable of ending LGBTQI(+) inequality all over the world. We, the team of the Russian LGBT Network thank you for showing you solidarity with the cause. Right now, we need you, because when we unite our efforts, we can create a better tomorrow.
With love and solidarity,
Russian LGBT Network.
