Online auction for LGBT victims in Chechnya

In case you were unaware, LGBT people–gay men in particular–are being persecuted in Chechnya. Reliable reports say they’re being detained, tortured, and murdered. You can read a summary here.

In response, a group of writers, readers, artists, and publishers are raising money for organizations that are seeking to evacuate potential victims out of Chechnya. Some authors are donating a portion of their royalties and some are taking part in an online auction May 5-13. All proceeds from the auction will go toward these organizations.

My contribution to the auction is below: signed paperbacks of three of my books, plus a T-shirt with art from the Japanese edition of “Speechless.” Unfortunately, I can only ship to US addresses, but other donors will ship elsewhere.

Here’s information on how you can bid and get involved in other ways.
