"I'm glad to see you, what you're doing here in Ukraine is incredible. In Austria, we are a step ahead of Ukraine, we already fight for marriage equality. You have to fight for your voices to be noticed, to prove that gay rights are human rights - it's a long way to go, but i'm sure you'll make it!" - Conhita greeted the activists.
Bogdan Globa, executive director of "Fulcrum", expressed his thanks for such kind words: "Open LGBT-celebrities are vitally important to the society, you make LGBT movement more visible and break unjustified myths about our community. I'm so thankful for your contribution in the international fight for rights of LGBT people, it gives us (activists) courage to continue the advocacy here, in Ukraine.
She stated a clear message to the ukrainian society:
"Every person deserves to be treated with respect, disregarding their sexual orientation or gender identity, religion, political views. We all deserve some respect."

"In my future albums i definitely want to be more explicit about what bothers me. And of course i'm very open to collaborate with other artists, it's possible i might do something in future, because i want to develop as a musician and an artist. "
