Russian sexologist Igor Kon, whose research on sexuality and the history of gay culture are considered fundamental works by Russian LGBT activists, died April 27 following a long illness. He was 82.
“Kon devoted several of his works to the history of the gay community and its culture in Russia and abroad,” said http://GayRussia.Ru. “He was one of the few members of the Russian intelligentsia and academic community who spoke against homophobia and in support of a tolerant attitude towards LGBT people.”
In 2005, Kon received the World Association for Sexual Health’s Gold Medal for outstanding contributions to sexology.
