Last year, GSN revealed how fascist leaders were spearheading the campaign against LGBTI teens.

They create profiles on social media, seduce young men into meeting them for a ‘date’, before they would be capture the victim and torture them on video.

The vigilante groups posted the horrific clips on the social networking site VK. Because of this, many of the men featured in the video were outed, forced to leave their jobs, and some committed suicide.
