all queer history on here is just US-American or maybe sometimes some UK history as well and it makes me sad that there’s so little information about other countries’ queer history on here 🙁
@makingqueerhistory has some diversity, as of historical queer people, and they’re doing a great job, but there’s a lot of work ahead.
OP is definitely right, there still is a huge gap in the discussions of queer history, and thank you for recommending us!
This isn’t perfect, and many of these only have one article, but here is our list of countries we have written about. We are hoping to one day have at least one article for every country in the world but as @every-book-has-a-secret there is a lot of work still to do.
!!! This is what I was looking for! thank you!
Of course! Glad we could help!
Hey why is something about Spain tagged in Portugal? Like, it says that it’s the story of two Spanish teachers who call in love? And the headline is “First Same Sex couple in Spain”?
I’m sorry if there’s more to it than I saw, and in judging a book by its cover, but Spain’s first same sex couple has nothing to do with Portuguese queer history.
While these two do come from Spain and I would say the article primarily focuses on Spain, a part of their lives are spent in Portugal. Many articles are tagged under numerous countries, this one included.
Though the part Portugal plays in their story is small, we still think it is a valuable part of Portuguese history to look at.
I can understand how it could have been confusing considering the title though!
