  Sir Francis  Bacon

English Literature: Renaissance
 
Homosexuality is writ large in the literature of the English Renaissance but, with the exception of a few significant but atypical texts, homoeroticism tends to be expressed implicitly rather than explicitly, seen from the outside rather than from the inside, and is nearly always shadowed by a penumbra of religious and social disapproval.

  Pink and Bent: Art of Queer Women

Pink and Bent: Art of Queer Women
 
Pink and Bent: Art of Queer Women is an exhibition curated by Pilar Gallego and Cora Lambert, who selected work by both established and emerging artists with an eye toward conveying the experience of being a queer woman through art, which can "describe visually what is too complicated" to convey through language alone.

Pilar Gallego and Cora Lambert on Pink and Bent
 
Pink and Bent: Art of Queer Women was an exhibition of the work of dozens of queer women, which was first mounted at the Leslie/Lohman Art Foundation gallery in New York City. Many of the show's images are available online on glbtq.com. In this interview, the project's curators describe their vision for the show--and the reason they did not call it "The Great Lesbian Art Show" despite its enormous size.

  Vicki Eaklor

Queer History/American History
 
In this POV article, historian Vicki L. Eaklor, author of Queer America, observes that the experience of writing her book impressed upon her the sheer magnitude of queer history. She also forcefully argues that American History and Queer History are necessarily intertwined. The glbtq past, far from being "yet another history" is part and parcel of American history.

  Symbols

Symbols
 
The glbtq community has developed and appropriated many symbols, but where did they come from and what do they mean? In this series of slides, you will discover that while glbtq symbols are diverse in origin and meaning, all serve to render visible communities that have been marginalized or erased.

  The First Man-Made Man

Michael Dillon in India
 
Michael Dillon was the first person to medically transition from female to male. Here, Pagan Kennedy, the author of The First Man-Made Man: The Story of Two Sex Changes, One Love Affair, and a Twentieth-Century Medical Revolution (Bloomsbury, 2007), tells the story of Dillon's unsuccessful efforts to become a Buddhist monk in India and his decision to reveal his secrets in a still unpublished autobiography he wrote near the end of his life.
