In the summer of 1989, Keith Hale set out to discover the gay life and culture of Eastern Europe and Turkey, a region not known for its gay movement. This unusual travelogue combines historical and cultural insights with first-hand experiences. Just as Edmund White, in States of Desire, found each city in the U.S. to have a distinct personality, Hale finds each of the countries he visited to have a unique appeal for the gay traveler. His book is of special interest given the dramatic changes that occurred in the Balkans soon after his visit.
