This 'homo historian' is uncovering LGBTQ history & educating followers on social media

If you happen to be in the market for an expert on LGBTQ history that can answer pressing questions such as “Was [Alexander] Hamilton gay?”, and “Who Invented Homosexuality?”, that is part of the LGBTQ community themselves, look no further.

Dr. Eric Cervini is an “award-winning historian of LGBTQ+ politics and culture” from Texas. He graduated from Harvard in 2014 and received his History PhD from the UK’s University of Cambridge in 2019 – whilst a Gates Scholar. Before earning his doctorate, he also founded Q, a “gender-inclusive queer social network” that raised $25,000 in less than 5 months.

His 13,600+ followers on Instagram may have something to do with his looks, but his deep, intelligent dives on generally uncovered topics probably keeps them coming.

In a series initially entitled “Magic Closet” that consisted of regular 1-minute videos, topics that Cervini’s dissected include Michelangelo’s sexuality and Ishtar, a goddess who “was both male and female.” While he is “an authority on 1960s gay activism,” he explores many pre-Stonewall history topics as well.

This is one thing desperately needed, not just for straight people, but for the GLBT community! Many, IMO, are completely ignorant of queer history and frankly, explains the divisiveness and fracturing of our community.
