Slava Mogutin is a Siberian-born, New York-based multimedia artist, author, and filmmaker exiled from Russia for his outspoken queer writings and activism. A third-generation writer and self-taught journalist and photographer, he became the first Russian to be granted political asylum in the U.S. on the grounds of homophobic persecution. He is the author of seven books of writings in Russian, as well as two critically acclaimed monographs of photography, Lost Boys and NYC Go-Go (powerHouse Books, 2006/2008), and a collection of poetry, Food Chain (ITNA Press, 2014).
