Beyond the Pink Curtain. Everyday Life of LGBT People in Eastern Europe

Beyond the Pink Curtain. Everyday Life of LGBT People in Eastern Europe

Ideja za zbornik je nastala na konferenci Intimno/seksualno državljanstvo oktobra 2005 v Ljubljani, kjer so raziskovalke in raziskovalci razpravljali o vsakdanjem življenju LGBT oseb v postsocialistični vzhodni Evropi in o socialnih, političnih ter kulturnih mejah, ki ločujejo “dobrega heteroseksualnega državljanja” od preostalih. Zbornik tako prinaša 21 socioloških študij o vsakdanjem življenju LGBT oseb v Belorusiji, Bolgariji, na Hrvaškem, Češkem, Madžarskem, Poljskem, v Estoniji, Latviji, Litvi, Srbiji, Slovaški in Sloveniji, eden od člankov pa posega v čas Vzhodne Nemčije.
