More Info

Alina Davis is a Russian singer and a talented fashion artist. Even though Alina is legally and biologically male, her artistic vision transcends the traditional male/female boundary. She has faced obstacles and the scorn of people for this.In 2016, Alina Davis was abusively and unfairly accused of drugs possession. She has been in prison since then, waiting for the trial. Her, and her family's request to be held in a female prison until the trial was denied. She and her family then requested a single cell for Alina, but it was also denied. Alina is in a male prison and therefore her physical integrity and life are at risk.We are confident that we can prove Alina's innocence. The obstacle is that her legal defense will cost 40,000 Russian rubles (690 United States dollars). Alina is not wealthy and does not have this much money. We, friends and family, have contributed with all we could, but it has not been enough. We reached organizations asking for their legal and monetary assistance, but to no avail. We still need 9,700 rubles (170 dollars) urgently as of 17 March 2017 (Moscow time, UTC+3). The trial will be on 22 March (Moscow time).Therefore, we have made this online campaign to ask for your help. Please see the main site for more information about Alina and some photos of her.
