Yesterday evening, gay shops "Indigo" in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kiev began selling the 30th edition of the lesbian magazine "Pinx". It has been 5 years since the inception of this gay-oriented publication, which is the longest-surviving of several attempts to publish lesbian periodicals in Russia.
The first issue of "Pinx" was printed on October 23, 2006. The founder of this project was Ed Mishin - the very same Ed Mishin who founded Gay.Ru.
"... It seems that the internet has penetrated the most remote corners of Russia, but we know that there are still many lesbians who are not able to access information from the Runet. "Pinx" was created specifically for them. For us, this is a not-for-profit project. Realizing its importance for a large part of the queer community who are detached from the web, we intend to continue publishing it as long as possible ..." said Ed Mishin, in response to questions from Lesbi.Ru.
For the last 5 years, the publication of "Pinx" has already accrued a hefty volume of more than 500 pages which contain the history of art and society in the lives of the lesbian community in Russia. Multiple pages will be added to this history in the 30th edition. Details of its contents can be found here (automatic translation) >>
