A Hunt on Gay Men

A hunt on gay men is underway in Russia. It started this week. Over a hundred gay men have already been jailed. At least three have been murdered by law enforcement. The hunt continues and is spurred on by a wave of social network posts and videos on how best to kill a gay person. 

This is happening in Chechnya, a part of the Russian Federation where child marriage, FGM, and other atrocities are legal thanks to Chechnya’s leader having a loving friendship with Putin. 

There’s nothing we can do but at least we can know that this is happening and not let these crimes be silenced.
