    • This is a well written history of gay culture and the people that brought forth change throughout history. It reignited my passion for gay rights (though I myself am not gay) and the final chapter provides excellent perspective on how sad, naive, and idiotic the current laws, fears, etc of homosexuality really are. This is a great book to provide perspective to those that do not understand/agree with homosexuality and is also a powerful tool for those in the battle for equal rights.


    • Aprendi muito com esse livro. Claro, a História da homossexualidade não é estudada em lugar nenhum e o máximo que ficamos sabendo sobre ícones gays através dos tempos é de Safo - o bastião da lesbianidade - e de Oscar Wilde, - bastião da viadagem. É interessante reparar que os gays homens retratados aqui ao longo dos tempos são sempre homens ricos e deslumbrados, que se exilam de seus países para buscar aventuras sexuais em outros lugares. Já as lésbicas, por outro lado, baseiam mu [...]


    • For quite a small book the amount of errors in it are absolutely incredible. The amount of unsubstantiated generalizations are bad enough but to get the most basic information wrong is just appalling.Plato was a GREEK philosopher and NOT a Roman.Socrates charge of corrupting youth was entirely motivated by political scapegoating and his alleged atheism. I've not read a single account that suggests it had anything to do with sexual motives. The 'Love that dare not speak its name' is from a poem b [...]


    • Despite many advances in progressing acceptance and toleration of homosexuality especially in the West, homophobia still resides both consciously and unconsciously in society in general, often lying just below the surface of respectability. So it is a good thing to have someone like Tom Ambrose remind us about those homosexuals in the past who can be considered to be heroic (either courageously defiant, or those suffering exile, or both) male and female homosexuals in the past who might even pas [...]


    • This excellent little volume comprises a series of short biographical chapters aimed at providing a background for some of the most well known, but more importantly some of the forgotten homosexual figures of past. Some of the choices and defences are perhaps questionable, was William Beckford not rightly vilified for his persistent paedophilia for example? That said, he is an interesting character whom I had never heard of until now. Similarly the enigmatic Baron Corvo, or more properly Frederi [...]


    • This is a very concise history of some of the gay community’s most luminary and historic figures. Heroes is a well written and researched book, the bibliography alone is worth its my weight, and mine, in gold. In his introduction Ambrose writes “Rome’s conversion to Christianity led to a reign of terror in which homosexuals were made the scapegoats for everything that went wrong in communities. From defeat in war, to crop failures and other natural disasters, homosexuals were wholly respon [...]
