Sheffield Does LGBT History

The lovely people at the Department of History at Sheffield University have a blog called History Matters. This year they have decided to run a series of posts on the subject of LGBT+ history. The first one has gone up, and appropriately it is an impassioned plea not to erase queer people from history. I am looking forward to a lot more of this over the coming days.

I’m also pleased to note that I will have a post in the series. I’m not sure when it will go up, but it has been through editing so it is just a matter of scheduling. It is about Romans, and in particular about someone who defiantly asserted that his gender identity was that which he had been assigned at birth.
