More Description

David Tuller provides the first look into the emotional and sexual lives of Russian lesbians and gays and the pervasive influence of the state on gay life. Part travelogue, part social history, and part journalistic inquiry, the book challenges our assumptions about what it means to be gay. The book also explores key issues in Russia and Soviet life, including concepts of friendship, community, gender, love, fate, and the relationship between the public and private spheres.
"Tuller's observant reporting and personal experiences make for absorbing reading: the human comedy rendered in unexpected ways."--"New Yorker"
"Anyone who thinks San Francisco is the world capital of sexual polymorphism should read this book."--Adam Goodheart, "Washington Post"
" This book is] is profoundly moving."--Jim Van Buskirk, "San Francisco Chronicle"
