David FranceWhen rumours began to surface in 2017 of a “gay purge”, Russia was silent. It was extremely hard at the time for international media to verify what was actually going on as victims either disappeared or were too afraid to speak out. We now know that what was going on was a purge – a liquidation – of the LGBT community. LGBT people being rounded up, tortured and even being given back to their families to commit so-called “honour killings”.

But through the darkness there was light. Oscar nominated film Director David France went undercover in Chechnya to capture these harrowing stories – and the inspirational efforts of the LGBT activists who risked their lives to save them. The result is his new documentary, Welcome to Chechnya: The Gay Purge.

OnirIndia’s LGBTI rights have been on a rollercoaster ride this past decade with a fight over the colonial-era Section 377 laws. First decriminalisation in 2009, then same sex acts became a crime again in 2013 before the law was again reversed by the Supreme Court in 2018. It was a great cause for celebration in the world’s second most populous nation. But legalisation doesn’t mean acceptance. And queer people still suffer discrimination and exclusion, even by their own families.

One way to improve acceptance is to tell the stories of queer people in film. It’s exactly what our guest – filmmaker Onir did in 2005, creating the first film about AIDS and same-sex relation in India. Now he has joined forces with the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne to help filmmakers tell stories of diversity.

March For DignityJune and July are traditionally the months when many pride events take place in the Northern Hemisphere. This year, unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the majority of the planned events. However, many events have been successfully held online. In the Georgian capital, Tbilisi Pride had ambitious plans for their events this year after a very violent Pride in 2019.

As the main opponents to last year’s Tbilisi Pride – the Far Right Georgian Movement – create their own political party, we go back to the events of 2019. John Eames is British film maker that documented the 2019 pride events in Tbilisi with the documentary March For Dignity. We see the sometimes violent events in Tbilisi last year through his lens.

Plus we talk to Giorgi Tabagari from Tbilisi Pride about the 2020 events and where LGBTIQ rights are up to now.

Ira RolduginaOne thing that Covid-19 has not stopped is a referendum in Russia to change the constitution. Russians have been going to the polls to remove term limits, allowing current President Vladimir Putin to remain in power until 2036, if he so chooses. Given the anti-LGBTI laws that have been implemented under his current rule, some fear success would means heightened attacks on Russia’s queer community.

Ira Roldugina is a PhD student and author from Moscow who specialises in the history of homosexuality in Russia. The once very liberal queerness of Russia is under threat and Ira is not afraid to speak out against the ruling regime.

The Okra ProjectBlack Lives Matter has grown from an idea in New York to a worldwide movement. Founded in 2013, the Black Lives Matter movement has recently touched billions of people following the death of George Floyd just over a month ago. Demonstrations have been taking place all across the world and many statues and other monuments celebrating colonial past and its associated racist history have begun to be removed. But what does this mean for black trans people?

Black trans people are disproportionally affected by violence – both assault and murder. Violence for being black, for being different or for being trans. Ianne Fields Stewart is a black non binary transfeminine New York based storyteller working at the intersection of theatre and activism. Ianne created The Okra Project  in 2018 – a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by black trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources wherever they can reach them. The Okra Project project is making a real difference.
