Friday, May 17 will be the World Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

On this occasion, we are organizing a giant LGBTI Kiss-in to support LGBTI people in Chechnya who are victims of persecution and torture because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Since December 2018, some 40 people have been arrested and tortured, two have lost their lives.

The violence echoes the events of 2017, when more than 100 people perceived as homosexuals were abducted and tortured in Chechnya as part of a campaign coordinated by local authorities.

Whether you are from the LGBTI community or not, come and support this cause by participating in this event.

/The principle ?/

Come accompanied, preferably from a person of the same sex, and kiss each other.

/ The dress code? /

None, come as you are.

Let's be many! "
