In Chechnya, LGBTQ+ people are living in fear of being discovered and killed, just for being who they are. A group of activists are risking their lives to create safehouses to help persecuted Chechens escape. Oscar-nominated filmmaker David France discusses his documentary Welcome to Chechnya, which is a tribute to the human spirit. While we celebrate Pride this year, we are reminded that hard-fought rights can be reversed and that we must speak up in defense of those who are vulnerable.
