Read Their Names: List of 27 Chechen Men Murdered for Homosexuality, and the World Still Stays Silent

Read Their Names: List of 27 Chechen Men Murdered for Homosexuality, and the World Still Stays Silent

We watched in disgust as the Chechen government completely lied to Vice News’ crew about the detainment, torture, and killing of gay men in the Russian federal subject. Now, Novaya Gazeta, a Russian newspaper, the same one that broke the story, published the names of 27 men that have been allegedly executed earlier this year.

The paper said that in order for the systemic killings to stop, the world must see that these are real people who have lost their lives, and to take the situation seriously.

It should be noted too, says a Russian LGBT organization, that not everyone on the list is gay. “As far as we know, the information in the Novaya Gazeta regarding 27 people being killed is true…With regards to the sexual orientation of those killed, as far as we know there are homosexual people in this list, but not all of them at all.” (Here is a great list of ways to help, and get governments to take action!)
