Review by Dan Healey
This is a book of extraordinary interviews that
takes us back to the optimistic early 1990s when LGBT citizens who grew up in the Soviet Union began to taste freedom in post-Communist Russia. Such interviews - so frank, so bold, so fresh - would scarcely be possible to obtain in today's Russia, and especially in Siberian cities and towns where isolation and homophobia have deepened. Franeta's book is a document about a lost opportunity for liberation, and also, I hope, a signpost to freedoms still worth fighting for.
