Mister Deviant, Comrade Degenerate confronts the instrumentalization of homophobia, anti-liberalism, and anti-modernism as tools of propaganda and ideology in both the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War. It explores the era's persecution of various nonconformist groups on both sides of the ideological divide, including political dissidents, queers, and avant-garde artists.
