"Pleshka" are meeting places for homosexual men. This name was born in Soviet times. Pleshkas were in almost all the large cities of the Soviet Union. There, gays had the opportunity to meet, communicate, and find a sexual partner. Usually, pleshkas were located in city parks and gardens, near public toilets. The first information about Kyiv pleshkas dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. The project consists of photos of several well-known cruising spots and a video of an intervention with the planting of a fruit tree seedling on the site of one of them.
