Fellow students of the Moscow State University (Baku brunch) informed our team regarding terrible news about Chingiz.

17 years old gay teen just started his first semester at the faculty of psychology. His friends said: After dyeing his hair and having an earring, Chingiz became a target of homophobic people around him or family members. He was living openly with his sexuality and always struggled because of the attitude of other people. People were bullying him always, acting strangely because of how he looked like, making disrespectful jokes about him.

The non-ending pressure affected him. He said to his friends about the struggle which he is facing, struggle which he goes through and he has not more power to endure all of this. 

His groupmates assuming that he committed suicide on 4th November by jumping down from the 17th floor of the high building where he was living and the reason of this is the homophobia based pressure of his family and society.
