#QueerHistoryIsEverywhere - The Lovers of Modena Were Two GUYS!

CNN is reporting that scientists have just discovered that the pair of ancient skeletons known as the “Lovers of Modena” who were found in 2009 (in Modena, Italy) buried holding hands were both men.

The middle-aged couple died sometime between 1,500 and 1,700 years ago, and like all queer history, the truth had been hidden – everyone just assumed that they had been a man and a woman.

Researchers figured it out by testing proteins in the skeletons’ tooth enamel where they found—in both—a peptide present only in men. They published their findings in the journal Nature.

Queer history really is everywhere!

The light in me recognizes and acknowledges the light in you,

P.S.: My thanks to Dr. Don Kilhefner for sharing this in his newsletter, so I can share it will all of you!
