A collection of books and documents on sexuality and gender in ancient Rome and Greece, with a particular focus on male same-sex relations. Including abstracts and summaries, this was created for the sole purpose of offering those interested in the topic a variety of sources for their reading pleasure. Please do not just copy and paste these sources into a bibliography for an assignment without having read through them. I put in the effort to compile these for people, so please do not just take all the work and pass it off as your own. If the article or book can be used for an assignment— go ahead and use them. But don’t just take this bibliography as a means in which to do little research of your own. This is just a starting off point, and I hope those interested will look further into the topics these sources bring up.
Whilst I have read all of the books and articles below, this does not mean I endorse all arguments made. I ask anyone interested in history to ask critical questions, and not take everything as truth. We historians make mistakes and have our own judgements and ideas, and whilst we strive to be impartial on all accounts, we are only human.
Everything has been done in the style of Chicago Style citations.
I like “Sexual life in Ancient Greece” by Hans Licht.
