From attacks on Gay Pride Parades to purges and camps in Chechnya, the persecution of LGBTQI people in the former Soviet Union unfortunately remains widespread. Under influence of conservative and nationalist forces this persecution has been intensifying. Despite the dangerous circumstances and constant attacks on those who speak out, there remain dissidents. Throughout the former Soviet Union we see journalists, activists and human rights lawyers courageous enough to take a stand for what is right. On the 6th of May, 20:00 in the IJzaal of Pakhuis de Zwijger, we will talk to some of these dissidents. And reflect on their stories with city councilors of Amsterdam.
