Gay writer Larry Kramer wants more people to write about gay history for an important reason

Legendary gay writer Larry Kramer has said he wants more authors to consider writing about gay history, claiming that most respected historians are straight. “They wouldn’t know a gay person if they took him to lunch,” Kramer told The New York Times. “A good example is Ron Chernow’s biography of Hamilton, which doesn’t include the fact that he was both gay and in love with George Washington. Gore Vidal pointed this out to me,” he added. Larry Kramer also touched on the controversy generated by his early works, including his...

Researchers find rare Victorian book that argued for acceptance of homosexuality

A largely forgotten 19th century book that argued for the acceptance of homosexuality in Victorian society has been rediscovered after a rare copy was found. The book – titled A Problem in Greek Ethics – was written by John Addington Symonds in 1883 and delved into the acceptance and celebration of same-sex relationships in Ancient Greece. Unsurprisingly for the time, the book never made it into the mainstream. The prejudices of the time – and a harsh judicial regime – meant that most gay people lived their lives in secret....

Boris Johnson’s resurfaced novel contains horrific ‘racist, misogynistic, homophobic’ references

A novel written by Boris Johnson in 2004 is receiving fresh condemnation as a new Twitter account is bringing excerpts back into the spotlight, tweet by tweet. Seventy-Two Virgins is described as a “comic political novel” and stars a blonde, bicycling, buffoonish Tory MP (sound familiar?) named Roger Barlow. “To a man like Roger Barlow,” Johnson writes, “the whole world just seemed to be a complicated joke… everything was always up for grabs, capable of dispute; and religion, laws, principle, custom – these were nothing but sticks from the wayside...
