Homosexual Desire in Revolutionary Russia: The Regulation of Sexual and Gender Dissent

by

Homosexual Desire in Revolutionary Russia: The Regulation of Sexual and Gender Dissent Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first full-length study of same-sex love in any period of Russian or Soviet history, Homosexual Desire in Revolutionary Russia investigates the private worlds of sexual dissidents during the pivotal decades before and after the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. Using records and archives available to researchers only since the fall of Communism, Dan Healey revisits the rich homosexual subcultures of St. Petersburg and Moscow, illustrating the ambiguous attitude of the late Tsarist regime and revolutionary rulers toward gay men and lesbians. Homosexual Desire in Revolutionary Russia reveals a world of ordinary Russians who lived extraordinary lives and records the voices of a long-silenced minority.

About the Author

Dan Healey is a Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Wales Swansea in the United Kingdom.
