Oksana Kutynska – lesbian, math teacher, and refugee from Ukraine. Now living and working in the UK. Fleeing from Ukraine at the beginning of the war became a start of a profound awareness of my identity, and myself as a person in society. I lived in Kyiv in my apartment, had an exciting job in a private school, and raised my son. The war in Ukraine destroyed my life and made me re-evaluate the values of life.
