Heliogabalus, High Priest of the Sun

Heliogabalus, High Priest of the Sun. Artist: Simeon Solomon

History Month Logo 2015 Because trans rights have only recently been talked about in public, many people assume that being trans is a modern invention, perhaps something invented by psychiatrists. However, gender-variant people have always been with us.

Cheryl Morgan takes us on a tour of some notable cases from history and makes the case for a rigid insistence on the binary nature of gender being a comparatively recent, Western, invention.

This talk is to the Bath University LGBT group, but it is open to the public. Free.
