Chechnya in Russia has opened the first concentration camps for gay men since WW2.
Over a hundred men have been rounded up in Chechnya recently, subjected to humiliation and torture, solely upon suspicion of being gay.
Media suspects mass murders. At this point three men have been confirmed as killed. Those close to the killed haven’t come forward to authorities, fearing their families could be “shamed,” and also because of unofficial support for “honor killings” on the part of authorities themselves.
