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 Russian 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: the human comedy rendered in unexpected ways". -- New Yorker

"Fascinating. . . . With keen intelligence, (Tuller) demonstrates how complex and nuanced and varied human sexuality really is. A terrific read". -- Lillian Faderman

"Anyone who thinks San Francisco is the world capital of sexual polymorphism should read this book". -- Adam Goodheart, Washington Post

"This book will cause any lesbian and gay reader to reexamine completely his or her assumptions". -- Edmund White

"Profoundly moving". -- Jim Van Buskirk, San Francisco Chronicle

"An outstanding book that brings illumination not only to its particular theme but also to our general understanding of modern Russia". -- Robert Conquest, author of The Great Terror
