HISTORY – Homosexuality in Ancient Greece – Part 2

“The pederastic form of same-sex relationships was a prominent feature of ancient Greece and Roman civilization. In these civilizations, male erotic interest in persons of the same sex was generally assumed to be universally present and psychologically normal, but not exclusive.” (Greenberg,Transformations of Homosexuality-Based Classifications, p. 181 in The Gender/Sexuality Reader Culture, History, Politico Economy, editors Roger N. Lancaster and Micaela di Leonardo.)
