I don't know whether you are aware of what is going on in the Russian region of Chechnya. The government of this deeply conservative province is arresting, detaining, torturing and murdering men who are even suspected of being homosexual.
These abuses have been reliably documented by organizations such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.
A group of authors is making an effort to help. We are auctioning off tons of great stuff, with proceeds going to organizations who are helping men at risk escape.
The auction starts TODAY and runs through May 13th. I am auctioning off two autographed print copies of my dystopic MM romance Quarantine, which won a Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention.

Thank you for whatever you can do. Even if you can't bid or donate... spread the news about these atrocities. Don't stay silent.
