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.

Hardback:Queer city, Gay London from the Romans to the present day:2017
Author: Ackroyd, Peter
Year: 2017
Language: English
Interest category: Living & learning
Media class: Hardback
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Chatto & Windus
Resource type: Physical
Note: In 'Queer City', Peter Ackroyd looks at London in a whole new way - through the story of its gay population. In Roman Londinium the city was dotted with lupanaria ('wolf dens' or public pleasure houses), fornices (brothels) and thermiae (hot baths). Then came the Emperor Constantine, with his bishops, monks and missionaries. And so began an endless loop of alternating permissiveness and censure. Ackroyd takes us right into the hidden history of the city; from the notorious Normans to the frenzy of executions for sodomy in the early 19th century. He journeys through the coffee bars of sixties Soho to Gay Liberation, disco music and the horror of AIDS. General adult
