Interview for YLE TV and web news on queer gentrrification of Helsinki: "Helsinki University Docent and long term resident first of Punavuori, then Kallio, Antu Sorainen researches urban development through the lens of queer culture. LGBT [Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transsexual] people are one community that originally helped create an urban buzz in working class areas of Helsinki.
