Chechnyas first openly gay man forced to apologise on national TV

http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2017/12/28/chechnyas-first-openly-gay-man-forced-to-apologise-on-national-tv/1/?utm_source=ET&utm_medium=ETFB&utm_campaign=portal&utm_content=inf_17_60_2&tse_id=INF_b78537d0ec1c11e79160a780a1ef54df

The first man to publicly come out as gay in Chechnya has revealed he was publicly shamed and forced to take back his comments.

Mover Eskarkhanov received death threats and was forced to apologise on national television after he told Time magazine that he was gay. 
Chechnya was condemned by world leaders and LGBT activists after the news of “gay concentration camps” in the republic reached the international press in April 2017.

2. Better than being murdered, which is what happens to gay men in Russia.

Also to gay people in the US, though hopefully the murderers pay a legal price in our country, if not in Russia.
