With the end of Soviet persecutions in 1991, LGBTQ+ communities have experienced a period of development even though post-Soviet societies have only partially shown greater tolerance toward sexual and gender minorities. The transnational interaction between Western activism and post-Soviet communities has led to the emergence of new feelings of gender, sexual, and national belonging. This volume presents research by experts in queer studies who study how the struggle for sexual and gender minority rights has intersected with the construction of political, social, and cultural belongings over the past three decades.
