This Holocaust Memorial Day – 80 years since start the start of WW2 – let’s remember the thousands of LGBTQI+ who perished in the Nazi Holocaust, let’s remember the millions of Queers across the world who have been killed or brutalised since and let’s remember today those who have been killed and nearly 40 detained in a new crackdown on LGBT people in Russia’s Chechnya region. The reports earlier this month echo those from 2017, when hundreds of gay men were rounded up by police in Chechnya and subjected to beatings and electric shocks in secret prisons, provoking international condemnation and sanctions.
