From Chechnya with Love

What do we really know about being queer in Chechnya, apart from the horrific stories of persecution of LGBT persons revealed by Novaya Gazeta in 2017? What is the political backdrop of the persecution?

The Norwegian Helsinki Committee and Queer World invite you to a conversation about queer courage, love and politics in Chechnya at Pride House, 18 June at 18:00.

In the panel you’ll meet Aage Borchgrevink, Author of the Chechnya book “Den usynlige krigen” (The invisible war) and Senior adviser in The Norwegian Helsinki Committee, Valentina Likhoshva, human rights defender from Russia and Susanne Demou Øvergaard, Secretary General from Queer World. Some of the survivors of the crisis will also contribute in their own way. Hilde Sandvær, Acting Head of Communications will lead the conversation.
