Gay and bi men are under attack in Chechnya. The Washington Post reports that the government is rounding them up in torture camps, with at least 100 arrests and three deaths. The need to evacuate vulnerable Chechens is urgent. The Russian LGBT Network is already working with two dozen people who have fled Chechnya, and four or five new Chechens reach out to the network's hotline each day for assistance.
