Let’s build a safer, better world without discrimination for our future generation!
Hey I'm Chris!
My name is Christian Gersbacher. I am an activist and blogger for LGBTQ* and human rights.
I began my professional career at the age of 16 with an apprenticeship as a banker at an international bank. During my subsequent professional career I had to deal with new people every day and learned a lot about human behaviour and why we should not think in boxes, but in individuals.
My decision: never stop exploring! I moved to Frankfurt am Main and began studying psychology at the Goethe University.
My own experiences with social inequality sparked my interest in current political and social developments. In 2015, I joined the Junge Liberale (JuLis) and was a district chair and deputy chair for press and public relations on the district executive from 2016 to 2018. Today, I am committed to zero tolerance for impunity, the investigation of state crimes and human rights violations, among other things.
My blog and podcast is a platform to give a voice to courageous people who are committed to LGBTQ*, human rights and democracy, to create awareness for experiences and to offer space for discussion and perspectives. I myself write about discrimination, LGBTQ* and human rights, based on facts and current studies.
Together with more than 50,000 signatories, I am campaigning for Germany to become a safer place for queer people and for hatred and violence against LGBTQ* people to be better combated and educated with my petition "Deine Stimme gegen Hass" under the motto "Queers gegen Gewalt" (Queers against Hate).
