Paperback:Russian homophobia from Stalin to Sochi:2017
Author: Healey, Dan
Year: 2017
Language: English
Interest category: Living & learning
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic
Resource type: Physical
Note: Examining nine 'case histories' that reveal the origins and evolution of homophobic attitudes in modern Russia, Dan Healey asserts that the nation's contemporary homophobia can be traced back to the particular experience of revolution, political terror and war its people endured after 1917. He explores the roots of homophobia in the Gulag, the rise of a visible queer presence in Soviet cities after Stalin, and the political battles since 1991 over whether queer Russians can be valued citizens. He also reflects on the problems of 'memorylessness' for Russia's LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) movement more broadly and the obstacles it faces in trying to write its own history.
