Homosexual Desire in Revolutionary Russia: The Regulation of Sexual and Gender Dissent is a new revised and updated translation of the first comprehensive study of sexual history in Russia that analyzes the hidden worlds of gender dissidents in the decisive decades on the eve of and after the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.

Using sources and archives that became available to researchers only after 1991, Oxford historian Dan Healey examines the sexual subcultures of St. Petersburg and Moscow, revealing the ambiguous attitude of the tsarist regime and the revolutionaries toward homosexuals. The book reveals stories of ordinary people whose lives were very unusual, capturing the voices of a social minority that was long deprived of the opportunity to make itself heard in the public space.
