UPDATE: We've reached our goal

Gay men are being thrown into illegal prisons and tortured in Chechnya. The Russian LGBT Network can help gay men at risk escape to safety.

All Out members have fully funded the requested evacuation and emergency support costs from the Russian LGBT Network.

We'll stand side by side with our partners until there is justice for those persecuted in Chechnya.

You can still donate here to support that work and other LGBT struggles around the world.

Over 100 men in Chechnya – a republic of Russia – have been hunted down, detained in a secret and illegal prison, and tortured. At least three men have been murdered.

Authorities say they want a “complete cleansing” of gay men from Chechnya.

The Russian LGBT Network has launched an emergency programme to evacuate gay men in Chechnya who are at risk of being captured or have survived arrest and torture. But the crisis has escalated so quickly, they’re running out of resources.

That’s why they’re partnering with All Out to raise the funds needed to get these men to safety.

Your gift today will help pay for travel costs, safe housing, food, and other emergency resources for gay men who need to escape Chechnya immediately.

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