LeGaL's 2017 Pride Reception, "Chechnya: Reacting to a Gay Purge," started off with a panel discussion featuring Jessica Stern (Executive Director of OutRight Action International), Graeme Reid (Director of LGBT Program at Human Rights Watch), Yleana Roman (Staff Attorney, Pro Bono Program at Immigration Equality), and Brian Huber (Associate, Proskauer Rose LLP). Moderated by LeGaL's Executive Director, Matthew Skinner, the panelists shared their knowledge of the situation in Chechnya and other areas around the globe with systematic human rights abuses against LGBT individuals. The event, hosted and sponsored by Proskauer Rose LLP, was followed by drinks and hors d'oeuvres in celebration of the upcoming Pride weekend.
