Digital Dérive: Socialism and the LGBT Community

Title

Digital Dérive: Socialism and the LGBT Community

Description

This diagram is the data companion to the video 'A Condensed History of Homosexuality and Communism'. This diagram demonstrates a very simple path chosen, pointing to the method one could take in exploring this topic. Rather than examining the full narrative, I have chosen to present the lineage and linkage between Stalin's criminalization of homosexuality. Prior to Stalin's rise to power, homosexuality was accepted by the socialist state. In this diagram, we see a very particular branch of the story, Stalin's homophobic legacy still present in today's post-Soviet/ post-Socialist countries.
