Zelim Bakaev is missing. The 26-year-old was last seen in August after traveling to Chechnya, where he was dragged into a car and driven away.
It’s believed that Zelim is a victim of Chechnya’s “anti-gay purge,” in which over 100 men have been captured, tortured, and even murdered.
Zelim has been missing for five months. Five months in the hands of one of the world’s most violently homophobic regimes, while the world sits idly by.
That’s why All Out is fighting back louder than ever. Together with our partners on the ground in Russia, we’re launching a worldwide campaign to find Zelim and bring him back to safety. Because if we don’t speak out, who will?
But we need help. Working on cases like Zelim’s requires long-term and ongoing commitment. We work on a shoestring budget, so we can provide our partners on the ground with all the support we can afford.
We’re determined to find Zelim, however long it takes. Will you join with thousands of others by also making an ongoing commitment to justice and equality?
