Marina and Elena: A Lesbian Love Story From Russia

“The Russian government doesn’t really care if the State Department or Madonna criticize the treatment of the LGBT community. I think the most effective way to address the issue is to not put it in a separate box, but to see it as a broader crisis and crackdown on civil society there. The day after the Olympics, 500 people who demonstrated on behalf of political prisoners in Moscow were arrested. The rights of everyone there are tenuous. It’s important to look at these two things together and not just talk about gay rights as a separate, special right, which in many ways plays into the Kremlin’s hands.”

In Case You Missed the Gordon Lish Reading Last Night

"He just turned eighty, but there he was last night at McNally Jackson Bookstore, holding forth at a reading for his new book Goings with more enthusiasm and earnest intent to entertain those of us who had come out to see him, than I’ve witnessed at readings by those younger and haler, which is to say readings by anyone else.”
