2. Her name: Yelena Grigoryeva

From the article:

A prominent LGBT rights campaigner has been found dead with multiple stab wounds and signs of strangulation in the Russian city of St Petersburg.

The body of a 41-year-old woman was found in bushes near her home in the city on Sunday, local police said.

Relatives and friends later named the victim as Yelena Grigoryeva, Russian news website Fontanka reports.

Ms Grigoryeva, who had reportedly received death threats, regularly campaigned for human rights in Russia.


I like to think I have the courage of my convictions but I donít know if Iím as brave as Yelena Grigoryeva. How about you?

Please rec to honor her and bring awareness to the injustice.
