EL*C launches the first European and Central Asian survey on the impact of Covid-19 on lesbians (individuals and groups)
Since March 2020, EL*C has been collecting testimonies and analyzing the impacts of Covid-19 on lesbians. They are huge and we felt the need for a more general and thorough evaluation.
By consequence, the EL*C has initiated a comprehensive online survey with the objective of gathering over 4000 responses. In order to maximise the outreach within the lesbian communities in Europe and Central Asia, the survey has been developed with two key targets in mind: lesbians individuals and lesbian groups. We hope that with these two pools of responses we will be better able to assess the impact of the pandemic both on an individual and collective basis.
The survey aims at assessing the COVID-19 impact in a more structured and analytical way, with a focus on private and professional life, including safety, health, socio-economic impact, and impact on the movement. From the little information available so far, we’ve observed that lesbians have been trapped in potentially dangerous situations due to the crisis, from young lesbians obliged to quarantine with their lesbophobic families, to older lesbians that cannot go out, do not have family on which to rely on, and are provided food and medication by the local lesbian community. Lesbians are being fired by their employer, as a result of their families not being recognised as equal to heterosexual ones, or not recognised at all.
Help us reaching out to lesbian individuals and groups, and getting thousands of answers, by disseminating this Survey throughout your networks and contacts! EL*C welcomes responses by lesbians on a wide gender identity spectrum (trans, cis, non binary).
The final goal of this survey is to draft – based on the findings – a series of targeted recommendations for institutional & governmental policy makers and donors to take into account in the current crisis management schemes.
Between December 2020 and March 2020, the survey will be accessible online and in 8 different languages, namely: Spanish, French, English, German, Italian, Russian, Turkish, Serbian.
