Gender Rebels of Ancient Greece and Rome: Transgender People

Join us for a deep dive into queer history in ancient Greece and Rome. This week, we focus on transgender men and women.

It’s a common belief that being trans is somehow a “modern” invention and there were no trans people in the ancient world. But nothing could be further from the truth.

From the trans women who led the worship of an influential state cult to the trans guys who lived right under the noses of Greek and Roman society, transgender people were gender rebels in an extremely patriarchal culture. Join us as we explore their lives and experience.
