It’s a scale of a tale today Queerstians. Just how homo are you? There’s one man who decided to investigate over 12,000 people to find out. Dr. Alfred Kinsey left his work studying gall wasps to research sex. And frankly, we think he made the right decision.
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.
