I was thinking of running a panel on the History of homosexuality throughout civilization (Like breifly talking about Ancient Greece, Japan, China, ect.), or possibly specializing it into a panel on the history of Homosexuality in Japan.

I was just wondering if anyone would be intrested in a mini-history class! xD

Which one do you think would attract more interest; the History of Homosexuality, or just the History of Homosexuality in Japan?

Glad you like the basic idea~! ^__^

Hard to say because personally I'm very interested in either version. Maybe see what others say over the next little while. Feel free to post a poll if you like ^_^

It would really depend I guess. How much time I have, and which cultures I choose to discuss. I think I would just cover the basic topics of each, and maybe at the end suggest further readings for those of you who are interested in a paticular area.

But if I were to just do the history of Japanese homosexuality, I could go deeper into subjects, but you wouldn't get such a feeling for the rest of the world and how it's evolved through socitey.

Personally, my favorite topic in regards to homosexuality lies in the Ancient Greeks, but I do know more about Japanse homosexuality than the average person as well ~_^

Unfortunately there isn't a whole lot covering sexuality in Ancient Egypt. When I visited Egypt in November you could see refrences to the penis and such on the carvings, but they all connect to heterosexual norms.

I only know of one mythological tale that deals with homosexuality in Egypt, but thats about it. But I am assuming they were pretty relaxed about those things. It wasn't until Christianity spread through the Roman Empire did homosexuality become taboo.

Now, in regards to Egypt now a-days, I know quite a bit about socitial and political issues surrounding homosexual practices!

But I'll see what I can dig up on Ancient Egypt if you would like ^__^
