More than 100 men have reportedly been arrested under suspicion of being gay in Chechnya. At least three men are reported murdered.

We call on you to immediately investigate these atrocious crimes and to bring to justice all those responsible for the arrests, torture, and killings of gay men in Chechnya.

All Out is also running an emergency fundraiser to help the Russian LGBT Network evacuate and support gay men at risk of being captured and tortured in Chechnya. You can make a donation here.

Gay men are being kidnapped and killed in Chechnya, Russia.

Over the weekend, horrifying news broke that more than 100 men have been arrested under suspicion of being gay. There are reports of people being tortured, beaten, and forced to share information about other gay men in the region. At least three men have been murdered.

The official response from Chechen authorities is that "gay people do not even exist in Chechnya."

Demand that Federal Russian authorities immediately investigate these atrocities and bring to justice all those responsible for the arrests, torture, and killings of gay men in Chechnya.

This campaign is being run in conjunction with the Russian LGBT Network.
