Rémy Bonny is a young political scientist. He studied the Bachelor and Master programme at the Free University of Brussels. Within the scope of this programme, Rémy wrote a master thesis on the impact of europeanisation on LGBTI-politics in Ukraine based on extensive field research. Currently, Rémy is living in Budapest. There he is examining the impact of foreign actors - like Russia - on the countermovement towards LGBTI-equality in Hungary. He’s doing this research in the context of a programme at the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation. Rémy specialises in LGBTI-Politics in Central & Eastern Europe and post-Soviet Republics. He has been travelling around Eastern Europe in the last three years to learn more about the LGBTIcommunity in the region. During the ‘3xVeto’ protests against the judicial reforms in Poland, he was asked by Al Jazeera to share his views on the topic. When Rémy received death threats for an article he wrote on the situation of transgenders in Armenia, he also became a vocal advocate for LGBTI-rights in the whole of Europe. Since that moment Rémy comments and writes on LGBTI-Politics for several international media, like The Advocate, LGBTQ Nation, PinkNews, GayStarNews, Bild, etc. More info on Rémy’s work on www.remybonny.be.
