Description

There has long been an assumption in the West that views on sex and sexuality are basically similar worldwide. This has never been the case. Many ancient cultures actively promoted same-sex relationships as an integral part of adolescence or even worship. The rise of Judeo-Christian views forced homosexuality "underground, " leading to Henry VIII's 1533 ban on homosexuals and Oscar Wilde's imprisonment for sodomy. "Born to be Gay" takes a radical look at the history of homosexuality, from Bacchanalian orgies to Gay Pride.show more
