Robert Beachy: Gay Berlin

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Wednesday, December 10, 2014 - 2:30pm

Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with ROBERT BEACHY, associate professor of history at the Underwood International College of Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. His new book is titled GAY BERLIN: BIRTHPLACE OF A MODERN IDENTITY. It is Beachy’s central argument that our modern understanding of homosexuality and gay culture started in the 19th Century city of Berlin. Berlin became a kind of laboratory of sexuality. This is a fascinating history complicated by the extreme politics of Germany in the first decades of the 20th Century. Tune in and learn about the very first gay rights organization and how the Nazis eventually ended decades of progress in sexual rights.
