So I don't think this has hit US news yet or people don't want to cover it or whatever, but there's literal concentration camps being opened in Russia with the purpose of purging gay men

(If you find a good article/video etc please lmk so I can add it below)

Spoiler

I don't want to offend anyone who is from that country, but damn, Russia is so backwards.

I do hope Trump speaks on the issue. This really needs some more international attention

^^ here's a link to an Amnesty petition about the issue I found on Twitter! Hopefully this can achieve something, even if it just gives more attention and a bigger platform to this issue because I've barely seen anything about it in the media??

 

This is absolutely horrifying!! 

 

 

EDIT: sorry, the link is in Finnish, here's a link to the petition on the Amnesty UK website: https://www.amnesty....ay-men-chechnya 

signing either should be fine no matter what country you're from! I just really hope this can get signatures because this is such an awful thing to be happening

i found a good site if anyone wants to donate: https://www.lgbtnet.org/en/endonate
here is a little blurb from them:
Attached File  IMG_6981.PNG   104.91KB   0 downloads

also i'll try to find something later that better explains it & gives some examples of places that would be safe for talking, but if you have friends or family there that you're worried about DO NOT! contact them over social media!!! they are taking people's phones and going through their contacts and messages as well as tracking (/hacking? i don't know how to explain it. they're able to see messages and locations etc to find more people) social medias. just because your account is on private doesnt mean they can't see it or the people you've contacted, they're really being very vigilant about this so if you do need to contact someone remember that encryption is a two way street. if you're encrypted but the person you are trying to contact is not, your encryption is basically useless and it does not protect the other person at all

EDIT: apparently the website isn't able to accept cards from other countries. I haven't tried it myself yet so I can't confirm but I don't know if they have paypal or something similar set up. if anyone tried to donate lmk how it works out. also for those worried, this isn't a scam. it's russia's largest and most popular LGBT organization and u can totally trust them.

also, if you plan on spreading the donation link, please be sure to include this information with it:
they already have the necessary resources to evacuate people, but they are not able to communicate directly with people who need to know about this for tracking reasons mentioned above. directly messaging people is super risky & i wouldn't recommend it, you have no idea if you could be putting someone in danger or not. but the more this link & info spread, it makes it more likely (and safer than sending it directly) that the people who need to see it will see it without it being linked directly to them & making them trackable/a possible target

(also would someone be able to log in for me and add this to the main post please? i won't have my computer for a few days & idk how to add it on mobile there's no editing options like there is on desktop & i don't have the html memoriezed to do it without a toolbar)

Tragic these people think their holes should only be used for defecation, Mr. Put-in.
