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.

Media class: Hardback
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Little, Brown

Note: In this volume, biographer Michael Bloch turns his attention to the men of British politics who were forced to lead double lives. Outwardly conforming to the requirements of heterosexual middle class society, many twentieth-century British politicians had illicit, clandestine and often thrilling queer sex lives. Some sought relationships with men of their own class, others with 'rough trade' and some confined themselves to fleeting, anonymous encounters in public places. General adult

Hardback:Fabulosa!, the story of Polari, Britain's secret gay language:2019
Author: Baker, Paul
Year: 2019
Language: English
Interest category: Literature & languages
Media class: Hardback
Publisher: Reaktion Books
Resource type: Physical
Note: Polari is a language that was used chiefly by gay men in the first half of the twentieth century. At a time when being gay could result in criminal prosecution - or worse - Polari offered its speakers a degree of public camouflage, a way of expressing humor, and a means of identification and of establishing a community. In the mid-1960s it was thrust into the limelight by the characters Julian and Sandy, voiced by Hugh Paddick and Kenneth Williams, on the BBC radio show Round the Horne: 'Oh Mr Horne, how bona to vada your dolly old eke!' In 'Fabulosa!', Paul Baker recounts the story of Polari with skill, erudition, and tenderness. He traces its historical origins and describes its linguistic nuts and bolts, exploring the ways and the environments in which it was spoken, the reasons for its decline, and its unlikely reemergence in the twenty-first century.

Paperback:Soho:2018
Author: Scott, Richard
Year: 2018
Language: English
Interest category: Literature & languages
Media class: Paperback
Content type: Poetry
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Resource type: Physical
Note: In this intimate and vital debut, Richard Scott creates an uncompromising portrait of love and shame, drawing upon his experience of London's gay communities. Examining how trauma becomes a part of the language we use, Scott takes us back to our roots: childhood incidents, the violence our scars betray, forgotten forebears and histories. The hungers of sexual encounters are underscored by the risks that threaten when we give ourselves to or accept another. But the poems celebrate joy and tenderness, too, as in a sequence re-imagining the love poetry of Verlaine. The collection crescendos to Scott's tour de force, 'Oh My Soho!', where a night stroll under the street lamps of Soho Square becomes a search for true lineage, a reclamation of stolen ancestors, hope for healing, and, above all, the finding of our truest selves.
