Summary
It's there! My book "Fragile as Glass" was published this month by Verlag Kettler. The book is accompanied by the text "Beyond Pain" by journalist Yana Radchenko. Yana herself fled her hometown to escape the Russian troops. In her text, she interweaves a personal level with the facts. It is a great honor that her words accompany the book.

"Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, the political and social reformation of the country initiated by Euromaidan has been severely tested. Old priorities have shifted, taken a back seat, or are more in focus than ever. The difficult situation of the community is further exacerbated by war, homophobic and anti-trans propaganda driven by Russia, and the persecution of queer activists. The book tells their stories by way of example. Quotes and interviews complement the documentary photos from the lives of the five protagonists. In intimate, powerful, and moving portraits and statements, the fragility of their situation is exposed, and it becomes clear how the war affects their lives, their environment, their identity, and sexuality."

Working on such an intimate, time-intensive, and lengthy story is only possible because of colleagues and friends who have supported me, as well as the individuals along the way who opened their doors to me. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to these people.

Write me a direct message or an e-mail to get your edition directly through me. Furthermore, you can order the book from my publisher. The book is limited to 600 copies. More than 100 are already sold. I look forward to your messages! Contact@sitaraambrosio.com 

The book was designed by the great Jasmin Cathor.
