A History of Same-Sex Desire.
Curator R.B. Parkinson talks about A Little Gay History and how a heritage of same-sex stories is an integral part of the British Museum.
“When we created the web trail we used the term ‘same-sex desire’. When you’re talking about Ancient Egypt to say ‘gay’ or ‘queer’ is entirely meaningless. Same-sex desire avoids the issues with terminology. It’s neutral and not anachronistic.”
