Queer women in Russia’s North Caucasus face attempts to ‘cure’ them, beatings, rape, forced marriages, and murder, according to a recent report interviewing a number of queer women from the region. While some gay men have been able to flee, the report said women were less able to do so as their money, movement, careers, and private lives were controlled by male ‘guardians.’ A report on the persecution of lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women in the North Caucasus was released in December by Queer Women North Caucasus (QWNC).
