"Lukasz Szulc's monograph is the opening volume of a new book series called Global Queer Politics. ... Szulc's book primarily seems to address readers and scholars who are active in the globalizing field of LGBTQ studies ... . Its particular appeal for Polonists and Slavists, in turn, lies in the author's careful and well-documented analysis of the homosexuality-related adaptive and adoptive attitudes and strategies as proposed by the two Polish magazines under discussion." (Kris Van Heuckelom, The Polish Review, Vol. 64 (2), 2019)

"The book is more likely to be of interest to LGBT and media scholars than to magazine teachers and researchers, but I can imagine it serving as the catalyst for some fascinating dissertations and published research on pre-1989 zines in Central and Eastern Europe. ... the book could serve to fill gaps in knowledge about a life that some of us may have experienced personally but understood only incompletely and one-sidedly." (Miglena Sternadori, Journal of Magazine Media, Vol. 19 (1), 2019)

"Szulc mentions the broader context of east central Europe, yet focuses mainly on Poland. This is understandable, a comparative project would require a group of scholars with different linguistic abilities; ... . The most original and elsewhere unavailable parts of the book are analyses of the east European Information Pool reports ... ." (Piotr Sobolczyk, Slavic Review, Vol. 78, 2019)
"Throughout the book, Szulc amasses and interprets a diverse, astonishingly rich selection of resources. ... Szulc's book is a much-needed introduction to an emerging field of study - a reliable source of diverse historical records, a go-to volume when researching aspects of homosexuality in communist Eastern Europe and, in itself, certainly a fascinating story." (Aleksandra Gajowy, LSE Review of Books,, December, 2017)…mehr
