The Queer History of the United States: Part 1
Play • 40 min

Here on Pride, we have the honor of speaking with scholars and historians that study all different aspects of queer history. Last year, Dr. Rebecca Simon taught us about the history of same-sex relationships during the Golden Age of Piracy. In December, Dr. Andrew Lear explained the pederasty of Ancient Greece.

Our guest today is Dr. Eric Cervini, an American historian with specialized knowledge of LGBTQ+ history in the US. Today, is part one of a six-part series that explores the rich history of queer people throughout time in the US. We’ll start with the indigenous people of North America, move into the Conquistador’s effects on native people, and end with the British Colonies.

Be sure to follow Eric on IG!

Your host is Levi Chambers, co-founder of Gayety.
