dc.description.abstract This chapter discusses the ways that regulation of sexuality takes in current Russia. Since 2013 when Russian legislature introduced a censorship law on ‘propaganda’ of homosexuality, courts have been tasked with decisions about what published materials or public actions constitute the ‘harmful’ content which this legislation seeks to ban. The following is the analysis of these decisions and other developments of regulation of sexuality that make up political and legal context. The main purpose of the study is to uncover a particular form of sexual subjectivity that judges convey through their texts. The use of Foucauldian discourse analysis helps to discover a split sexual subject who is simultaneously ‘born gay’ and chooses to become one. Such a structure of sexual subjectivity makes it possible to impose regulatory powers of the law. en
