Branden Hayward of Rise and Resist is organizing a Solidarity March for Chechnya, a Muslim majority part of Russia, where gay men are being rounded up by government forces and killed. The march on Sunday, June 11 starts at noon on the Christopher Street pier and ends in Union Square. Hayward said the group aims to draw attention to the persecution there and help the Rainbow Railroad that is aiding Chechen gays. “I have a deep-rooted passion for people who don’t have a voice,” he said.
