Listen as Paul and Evan take you on a magical journey of Hindu queerness, in honor of our Hindu listeners. Which was pretty easy to do as Hinduism is quite full of gender variance and same sex love. From transgender war heroes to gay gods this episode is sure to intrigue. So hit play and learn how queerness and spirituality have always mixed.
Today we cover an amazing individual who’s all but been erased from history, Dr. Alan Hart. While he achieved much academic success starting at a young age, Alan would struggle with his career for decades. This was due to his transition from female to male in the early 1900s.
This week we cover the Pink Triangle and the Nazi persecution of homosexuals. Once a home of vibrant queer progressiveness, Germany dissolved into a dark place of bigotry, anti-semitism and extreme homophobia. We trace Hitler’s dissent of hate from his overthrow of power in 1933 to the end of the war.
