Gay Russian leader Nikolai Alexeyev will be the keynote speaker at the 9th Annual Matthew Shepard March on Sat., Oct. 6. The rally/march, organized by the Gay Liberation Network ( GLN ) , will begin at 8 p.m. in the parking lot located on the corner of Halsted and Roscoe streets in Lakeview.

For the past two years, Alexeyev has led the efforts of Russian lesbians and gays to win the right to publicly organize, braving police arrests and physical attacks by neo-fascists and religious zealots, according to a GLN press release.

'The Gay Liberation Network is proud to host Alexeyev because his example of tenacious organizing demonstrates how rights have always been won, regardless of country,' said GLN co-founder Andy Thayer.

On Wed., Oct. 3, 7-9 p.m., GLN will host a solidarity reception with Alexeyev at the Gerber/Hart Library, at 1127 W. Granville. For more information about either event, call GLN at 773-209-1187, e-mail LGBTliberation@aol.com,or visit www.GayLiberation.net .
