I Edinburgh Bisexual Group: The Economics
GLASNOST, BY THE WAY
OK, who's heard at Rostov-on-Don? Well, it's a major industrial and administrative centre about 300 miles south-east at Moscow, situated (surprisingly enough) on the banks at the River Don, and it's also one at Glasgow‘s iour twin cities.
Trade links between Glasgow and Rostov have been established overthe past liiteen or so years, and will be enlarged upon at business seminars during the "Rosiov-on-Don Events in Glasgow' week, Thurs 29—Wed 5. But the week's main purpose is to encourage cultural and social links.
Rostov is the artistic heart at south-east Russia, containing theatres, classical music ensembles, museums and a rather staggering 400

libraries. Accordingly, there is a broad-based programme or exhibitions and perlormances, lrom costume and photographic displays at Kelvingrove Art Gallery, to music, ﬁlm gymnastics and Cossack dancing (see Listings sections) at venues throughout the city. With the twinning’s future in mind, children’s participation is also encouraged, with an exhibition of books and drawings, and cartoon shows.
80 forget the load queues, the Stalinist purges and the icy Siberian wastes in Doctor Zhivago - when glasnost comes to George Square, when the balalaika boys get going and the vodka starts llowlng, we might just find a dancestep or two in common.
