To Speak At Matthew Shepard March

Russian Gay Activist Headed To Chicago

Russian rabble-rouser Nikolai Alexeyev will be the keynote speaker at Chicago’s Matthew Shepard March this Saturday. Alexeyev’s made international headlines for his tireless gay activism and the outing of prominent politico Alexander Chuev.

That stunt may earn Alexeyev slander charges.

Of Alexeyev’s involvement, Gay Liberation Network’s Andy Thayer says “[His work] demonstrates how rights have always been won, regardless of country.”
