Ukraine Unicorn : 2022


The LGBTQ Community fighting on the Ukraine side began he practice of using a unicorn on their uniforms when Russia first invaded the Crimean Peninsula in 2014. A statement had been made that there were no gay people in the army.

It was after that statement that gays in the military choose the unicorn symbol – it is a fantastical “non-existent” creature. These soldier are fighting for more than just Ukraine, they are fighting systemic homophobia present in Putin’s Russia
