Here Is The Shocking Footage Of Gay Men Being Beaten On Camera In Russia

Thanks to Human Rights Watch, we're able to see the harrowing footage of the brave LGBTQ community in Russia standing up for their rights despite being severely threatened, tortured, and in fear of their own lives.

Yet their attackers seem to not fear the law at all — and that is because they are essentially free to get away with this type of treatment. So much so that they even upload their own videos of torture onto YouTube. See the footage below and speak out against this horrifying behavior.

Warning: This video is truly horrendous, and it contains graphic images (pretty much from 11 seconds in).
