Russia’s Justice Ministry filed a lawsuit in an unsuccessful attempt to “liquidate” the Russian LGBT Network under the belief it challenged “traditional values”.

The Russian LGBT Network promotes and protects the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in Russia. The network is known for its continued support of the LGBTQ+ community.

In 2017, during Chechnya’s horrific anti-gay purge, the Russian LGBT Network led efforts to support survivors and prevent abuse towards those targeted.
