DNA Magazine - - MONTH IN A MINUTE -

One year af­ter the anti-gay purges in Chech­nya were first re­ported, protests take place in sev­eral world cities. Hun­dreds gather out­side Rus­sian em­bassies in Lon­don, Brasilia, Mexico City, Mu­nich, Berlin, Rome, Stock­holm and New York to high­light the plight of gay men liv­ing in the re­gion, part of the Rus­sian Re­pub­lic. Dozens, pos­si­bly hun­dreds, of Chechen gay men were ab­ducted, held in camps and tor­tured. Some are still miss­ing, pre­sumed dead. The protests spark the In­sta­gram #kiss4l­gbtqrights, with pro­test­ers geo-lo­cat­ing them­selves at The Krem­lin, Moscow.
