Hunted – Russia LGBT
Shocking film reveals full horror of persecution in Russia where “gay people are hunted like animals”.
A shocking new Channel 4 documentary shows how gay men in Russia are being “hunted” by vigilante gangs and beaten up because of their sexuality.
Six months after the Russian parliament unanimously passed a law to protect children from ‘non-traditional’ relationships, ‘Hunted – Russia LGBT’ explores the terror against LGBT people in this area, despite Russia officially welcoming gay athletes and spectators to the Winter Olympics.
But it’s believed only 1% of gays dare to live completely openly in Russia, so this appears to be an empty gesture.
