You sure are hell-bent on directing traffic to that site, aren't you? I wonder.

But as the British Broadcasting Corporation points out:

At the time (1921), Russia's gay community was enjoying a brief window of tolerance.

After the October Revolution in 1917, the Bolsheviks scrapped and rewrote the country's laws. They produced two Criminal Codes in 1922 and 1926 and an article prohibiting gay sex was left off both. . . .

The Bolsheviks were indirectly influenced by Magnus Hirschfeld, a German scientist who founded the Institute of Sexology in Berlin.

Hirschfeld often spoke in public of his conviction that homosexuality was not a disease, but a natural manifestation of human sexuality. . . .
Sure put your foot in your mouth there, didn't you?
