Gay men are being rounded up, imprisoned & murdered in Chechen concentration camps. It is our belief at Global Amigos and Preston Pride that funds need to be generated to support those affected.
The Russian LGBT network are smuggling LGBT individuals out & placing them into safe accommodation. Those saved are being uprooted with only the clothes on their backs and, whilst Barry in Buckingham changing his profile photo will raise awareness of the issue, we believe that Piotr in Chechnya, now in hiding, would appreciate money for basic necessities. Additionally, the group helping Piotr would undoubtedly appreciate funds to buy fuel, supplies; possibly to recruit more people to help. (Hell, if we had the funds we’d be flying out to help ourselves!)
