Report US refuses visas for Gay Chechens fleeing violence

Moscow, Russia - The US State Department has refused to issue visas to Gay Chechens fleeing persecution in their country, according to Russian LGBT activists. The Russian-based organization LGBT Network says about 40 Chechens have escaped the wave of kidnapping, tortures, and murders that swept up more than 100 of their Gay countrymen and are now in hiding in other parts of Russia. They are unable to get the visas that would allow them to leave the country, LGBT Network spokesperson Svetlana Zakharova told BuzzFeed News.

On Friday, May 5th, Asbury Park came together as a community, as they have for the past five years for the 5th annual “Pink Prom” to raise funds to another amazing cause. The event took place in one of my favorite venues in Asbury Park, Hotel Tides. This is the fifth year of this spectacular event that has amassed thousands of dollars to help local LGBTQ organizations, and it has turned into one of New Jersey’s most successful fundraisers. In the last five years the Pink Prom has benefited Pride Network, Pride Center of New Jersey, Project Real, Gender Spectrum Support Network, Glsen, and this year, Garden State Equality, an organization that has done so much for the LGBTQ community, and now will continue to do so.

Don’t let the ticks chase you back indoors. Here are some ways to protect yourself:
