Why are lesbians called ‘lesbians’? What is ‘Greek love’? Were the Ancient Greeks and Romans ‘all bisexual’? Who was the Hermaphroditus? Was the emperor Elagabalus trans?
LGBTQ+ identities are often thought to be modern inventions, but queer desires, bodies, and selves have existed in many forms since ancient times. Queer@King’s invites you to join our researchers in Queer Classics for an informal evening of spotlight talks on ‘Queerness and Greco-Roman Antiquity’, followed by discussion.
