A leading authority on Antinous will chair an evening of discussions on sex in ancient civilizations as part of Gay History Month in London tomorrow evening.
John J. Johnston chairs the event exploring how sexuality has been classified or not, including a presentation on "Sex and History: Talking sex with objects from the past" project by Jennifer Grove (University of Exeter) and "Queer Time Capsules" by Tim Redfern / Timberlina.
"I will be starting off with a presentation on sexualities in the ancient world before chairing a series of presentations and a discussion and in addition to those knowledgeable and eclectic participants mentioned in the blurb above," John told us.
"We'll also have a contribution from the rather fabulous Fern Riddell of King's College London, who specialises in sexuality during the Victorian era. I think it will be a thought-provoking and entertaining evening," he added.
Date: 20 February | Time: 6-8pm | Location: G6 Lecture Theatre, Institute of Archaeology, UCL, Gordon Square | Price: Free. Booking essential via https://definingdesire.eventbrite.co.uk
