Trial access to Eastern European LGBTQ Collection and Estoniia Digital Archive (East View)

By Sarah Gilmore, on 21 February 2024

UCL has trial access to Eastern European LGBTQ Collection and Estoniia Digital Archive from East View until 19th March 2024.

Eastern European LGBTQ Collection : with the resurgence of conservative political activism in Eastern Europe, LGBTQ persons and LGBTQ activism are largely rejected for undermining national values and social cohesion. Although there have been advances in legal protections accorded to LGBTQ persons, their presence and visibility in the public space remains broadly misunderstood, mischaracterized, and vigorously contested.

This collection of ephemera, (brochures, clothing items, booklets, flyers, etc.) offers important insights into LGBTQ activism in Eastern Europe and the Balkans in the past decade

Estoniia Digital Archive : founded in 1991, Estoniia (Эстония, Estonia) was a popular Russian-language broadsheet newspaper published in Tallinn. Established on the basis of the defunct newspaper Sovetskaia Estonia after the Estonian declaration of independence, Estoniia was one of the earliest privately owned newspapers in the country. Modelled after popular Western newspapers, it was dedicated to covering domestic and foreign politics, the economy, culture, the arts, and literature. The newspaper changed its name to Vesti dnia in 2004, however due to financial difficulties and increased competition it ceased publication in 2009.

Estoniia Digital Archive can also be cross-searched within Global Press Archive
