Re: [QUERY] "Scenes from the Life of a Double Monster"
Mary Efremov: "there were other gays in the family and family members can always tell but maybe not talk about it....both uncles from father's and mother's side were gay, and embarassing...his father coined a proper russian word for homosexual and tried to introduce legislation to de-criminalize homosexual behaviors....ravopolniy."

Jansy Mello: Like many others, I feel uncomfortable with generalizations and broad categorizations - and It seems to me that the term "gay" has been applied to lots of different kinds of sexual choices, identities, feelings and behaviors: how would "ravopolniy" be translated to the English?
