Coming Out of the Iron Closet

Larry Peloso

1995, 40:00 minutes, B&W, English


Books and magazines are being published, clubs opening, and hot dykes and cute boys are talking sex: this is the new USSR. Shot during a two-week train trip through Moscow, Riga and Tallinn, Peloso's documentary is an engaging look at the emerging post-Soviet gay and lesbian community, peristroika having, in a limited way, opened the closet door.
