Hi, my name is Alexander. I'm human rights and gay rights activist from Russia working for Amnesty International. I started as journalist many years ago but then turned to human rights work as the situation in my country becomes worse with each year. I may say my job is not about human suffering only it's also about devoted individuals and whole communities dedicated to fight for their rights, liberty and dignity.
My job gave me an opportunity to meet wonderful people with exceptional integrity all across Russia and neighboring countries, like Tbilisi LGBT Pride organizers, Ukrainian culture up-keepers, anarchists and Crimean Tatar activists from Crimea, human rights defenders in Rostov, Voronezh and Saint Petersburg, young opposition activists from Minsk. I'm immensely grateful to all of them who keep the candles of hope alight.
I don't mind to get any cards but if you have something related to human rights, political and environmental activism and LGBT community, you're very welcome.
