These events created the impression that the USSR had deliberately ‘decriminalised’ and then ‘legalised’ homosexuality, but this view was not entirely correct. Yes, the USSR had abolished the oppressive Czarist Legal Code, and in so doing had dissolved Article 995.
The Soviet Union was a Socialist State seeking to evolve society beyond its feudal and capitalist limitations, and into an advanced Communist System where class, religion and State would no longer be required for the maintenance of an optimum human society.
Of course, the rightwing press immediately launched a vindictive campaign against Julian Clary for expressing his disdain at Toryism in general, and Tory policy inparticular. This was the very same press that thought it was perfectly OK for homelessness to re-appear on the UK streets, after being virtually eradicated by the Labour initiated Welfare State since 1948.
Of course, VI Lenin- the founder of the Bolsheviks and the inspiration behind the 1917 Russian Revolution – was one of the first world leaders to de-criminalise homosexuality (around 1918), and it is obvious that Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels (the founders of modern Scientific Socialism) would have had no tolerance for the fabricated and sentimentalised hypocrisy of the pretence that is bourgeois ‘morality’.
