So, said Harris, gay magazines gradually abandoned the secrecy and euphemism, and instead put a "utopian image of the subculture of post-gay liberation," in which no one is scared, not sick and disgusting. The aesthetics of" high gay style, " which once had a purpose, has now turned into a senseless parody of itself. Through the personal ads (they are the author traces for more than five decades) once single homosexual male looking for friendship or just sex; now their relationship has become "heterosexual", full of sweet love confessions and unattainable romantic ideals.

The reason for this is that Harris says that having achieved social acceptance, homosexuals immediately fell into the category of prospective consumers. They are receptive, earn above average, and, often without children, have sufficient free resources that are not averse to spending. Letting Commerce into your life, gay people allowed it to install itself to the same ideals that and everyone else. But at this stage, the gay as if "flashes", he leaves the arena of "world historical progress", plunging into the routine of meeting their small household desires and needs. This is a kind of ornamental plant, necessary for any Corporation, if it wants to be called modernist and tolerant. The end of an era of struggle for recognition gives rise to a new generation of homosexuals, their new kind: post gay

Post-gay is a concept that applies to homosexuals who relate to their homosexuality calmly and naturally, rarely experiencing social discrimination, and usually having an environment that relates to homosexuality tolerant. Post-gay people do not consider sexual orientation to be a defining characteristic of their identity, and for whom the stage of the struggle is over and you can move on..

Thus, the boundary between" we "and" they", peculiar to the stage of" pride for their own identity " becomes fragile and fuzzy. Homogentisate now does not require strict opposition to the environment. On the contrary, organic combination and synthesis of identities are encouraged. Homofermenters not in fashion! And in the ranking of answers to the question " Who are you?"- sexual orientation gives way to other identities (I am a man, a man, a lawyer)........gay....)

The Russian gay community goes through all the stages of formation and affirmation of its identity as a full-fledged community, experiences the stage of "pride for its identity", manifests its inakovost and, finally, finds ways to "synthesize and integrate identity", resolving the contradictions between queer and heterosexual culture on a parity basis;
Russian gays enter the stage of posthistory, deconstructionism in parallel with the West, bypassing the significant and complex stage of "pride in their identity."

Supporters of the latter vector of development is much more than the first. Homosexuals, in this approach, not looking for public recognition, not fighting for rights and legalization of their position: they argue that the "great battle" has died down and receded into the past. Now you can enjoy the results and benefits. In our opinion, such an idyllic vision of the picture is true for the West that has passed all the way of formation, but in Russia this position is based on self-deception. As we remember, according to the model, the cashier, any homosexual (gay community) may stop in its development at some of the stages, considering further movement unnecessary. But on the same model - it is impossible to jump over a step.

It is impossible to achieve the synthesis of identity without having to openly declare their orientation and defend their right to be so. Without having passed a stage of pride for itself, Homo-community will not feel full. In fact, gay communities in modern Russia are at the stage of" acceptance of identity", but they are imposed by the media and the power of the discourse of"synthesis of identity". Reproaches from others look reasonable: "Why do You need to protest... Look at Europe and the United States - they have all settled down. It is better to go to clubs, saunas than demonstrations and parades

By the grace of God (that is, with the permission of the majority) you have clubs and saunas." But this call should stop the process of self-affirmation of the Homo-community, drive it into the framework of marginality. Of course, we cannot say that the issue of homophobia in the West is resolved. But it is much regulated and institutionalized through the active position of the gay community and its use of the resources of the sexual revolution and the struggle for civil rights.

In the West, to be homophobic now "is not fashionable and is not good," in Russia the situation is different: being gay is much worse than a homophobe. Activists of the gay movement point to the "settled" West and ask to behave "irrevocably and correctly", referring to the deep national traditions (as in the case of the gay parade in Moscow). We see here a clear substitution of concepts sanctioned by ideological discourse and power (via the Internet, TV, Newspapers). Russian homosoto are now faced with the problem of choosing the type of discourse: "the struggle for recognition" or "recognition of the uselessness of the struggle." It seems to us, the sympathy in favour of the latter.

These are, in our opinion, the prospects for the development of queer culture in Russia. In any case, the Russian gay community not to avoid the whole problem of "catching up" process of the shift of the phases of development and diversity, which will cause the internal contradictions and, most likely, will not give the opportunity to organize and create a sustainable internal structure of the community.
