How the Soviet Union accidentally rolled out the red carpet for a delegation of gay activists

It was the visit that was never meant to happen in Communist Russia – and now it’s being made into a TV series. In 1978 a woman and two gay men from Homosexuelle Aktion Westberlin (HAW) visited Moscow as VIPs.

But their whole visit was a mistake. The Soviet Union punished male homoesexuality with between two and eight years in prison – a law that remained in place until 1993.
