  glbtq >> arts >> Erotic and Pornographic Art: Gay Male
The homoerotic art of ancient Greece is central to the visual history of homosexuality in the West.
While allusions to ancient Greece in the homoerotic art of the fin de siècle by no means completely safeguarded it from the censorious morality of the mainstream, it is clear that Grecian themes provided for both considerable social allowance and homoerotic potential.
Homoerotic Greek art is also important for how it documents a number of ideals for gay male beauty and desirability that persist to this day.

 Table of Contents and Excerpt, Rabinowitz and Auanger, Among Women
At least for the time being, "homoerotic" does not have an association with a congealed identity, although it may be colonized for that purpose in the future.
Homoerotic, by this genealogy, suggests the possibility of desire without consummation, turns our gaze away from genital sexuality, and inscribes a more expansive field of relationships than does "homosexual." As a result of this etymology, "homoerotic" better tallies with the nature of our evidence about women's lives in antiquity.
Greene argues that Sappho's poetry rejects the conventional Greek pattern of dominant lover and passive object of desire; she analyzes the way desire is configured in Sappho, disentangling the poetic dramatization of desire both from ancient male models and from modern conceptions of female sexuality.

 Plato: Phaedrus   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
Although at times Socrates appears to be disapproving of the pursuit of purely sexual gratification (in any form), homoerotic relations among men appears to have been a accepted diimension of social life in the ancient Greek world.
The poems of Sappho celebrate homoerotic relationships among women; the word "lesbian" derives from the island of Lesbos, where Sappho lived.
Sigmund Freud, often seems ambivalent on this topic, sometimes discussing homosexuality as an aberrant form of sexuality, but generally suggesting that all human beings experience homoerotic impulses.

 HMA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
The Homoerotic Military Academy was founded in 1891 by Gen. Clarence P. Halewood and Gen. Paul David Werton, two retired military generals renownd for the dignified homoeroticism they inspired in the units under their command.
Since that time, the Homoerotic Military Academy (HMA) has been home away from home for thousands of homoerotic young men during the last century and has been a proud keeper of dozens of age-old homoerotic traditions, most of which are closely guarded secrets to this day.
When Shannon was a little girl climbing trees, playing with toy soldiers, and shooting squirrels with her BB gun, she dreamed of one day being admitted to the Homoerotic Military Academy, the same school her father, Jeff Walker, graduated from in 1968.

 Art Bulletin, The: The Warren Cup: homoerotic love and symposial rhetoric in silver
Unlike scenes of heterosexual intercourse, those of a homoerotic nature are relatively uncommon in Roman art,(7) with the Warren Cup providing the only known representation of homosexual copulation in the medium of decorative Roman silver.
In the considerable body of visual representations of pederastic activities in Greek vase painting, the ideal form of homosexual sex was intercrural, or copulating between the legs.(11) Anal intercourse between two Greek males was considered demeaning and a form of subjugation that violated the social etiquette established for pederastic love.
Before dealing directly with the homoerotic scenes on the Warren Cup, I shall discuss in this section the nature of homosexual relationships in Roman antiquity, since this subject is rather complex and quite different from modern concepts of homosexuality.

 A Homoerotic Love Air in the Cantata ‘‘The Quarrel Between Phoebus and Pan’’ by Johann Sebastian Bach
As the performance of a play with homoerotic content by the pupils of a Catholic school would have been impossible for reasons of morality, the father added a female character, Melia, the sister of Hyacinthus, and lets Apollo fall in love with her.
Considering the great reservations against homoerotic love that the vast majority of the population was prone to at that time (and still is nowadays), this appears at first quite surprising.
But in view of the high esteem and rank of antique fables and myths in 17th and 18th century poetry, such a benevolent reaction appears understandable, even though there was also no lack of criticism of mythological subjects, particularly on the part of orthodoxy and pietism.

 Style: Homoerotic Bonding as Escape from Heterosexual Responsibility in Pynchon's Slow Learner - Thomas Pynchon
The story of the misery of the thwarted affair that leaves Des Grieux senseless with grief after the death of Manon mirrors Porpentine's homoerotic relations with Moldweorp and Goodfellow.
Manon in exile, Goodfellow ignores the content of Porpentine-Des Grieux's antic posturing, yet that content--the singer's desire that he be allowed to express his love physically--plays both on the level of the opera and in Porpentine's suppressed desire for Goodfellow (105).
Later, Porpentine's homoerotic jealousy expresses itself both when he stops Goodfellow from singing Des Grieux' s passionate Donna non vidi mai, an act quite hypocritical in view of his sexual failure a few hours earlier, and when he completes the aria himself (128).

 J. Stevens: Homoerotic Romanticism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
This paper examines the intertwining of Romantic and homoerotic gender discourses, focusing on the case of Walt Whitman and his relationship to the 20th-century American Romantics, Hart Crane and Allen Ginsberg.
The 20th-century poets are Whitman's ideal readers, his "interpenetrative lovers." Their appropriation of Whitman's homoerotic project and the process of co-creative procreation they each engage in with Whitman stem from the fact that they read Whitman's text.
In either case, the homoerotic aspects of Romanticism have brought closure to at least one dillemma faced by the Romantics.

Yup, Homoerotic Records is Souvaris' very own CDR label for when we want to put out some small things in limited quantities for whatever reason - supporting a good cause, trying to break even on a tour, or satisfying a desire to put out a record purely because you've got a funny name for it.
To put out whatever music we goddamned well please, that we know not very many people are going to be too interested in - thus enabling us to have complete freedom with execution of content, packaging, presentation, dubious label name, etc without fear of reproach.
Homoerotic releases will be goddamned when we please too - which means extremely sporadically, because we've got plenty to get on with elsewhere in our lives.

 Amazon.ca: Books: Homoerotic space :the politics of loss in Renaissance literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
Sexual politics in the Renaissance dictated a strong opposition to any kind of homoerotic attachments, or discussion thereof, forcing Renaissance poets and playwrights to find other means of representing these connections.
In this compelling and intriguing work, Stephen Guy-Bray argues that early modern authors used renditions of Theocritan and Virgilian pastoral, as well as epic poetry, for the exploration and the allusive presentation of homoerotic and homosocial themes.
Drawing on the poetry and plays by such authors as Castiglione, the Earl of Surrey, Milton, Spenser, Barnfield, William Browne, Shakespeare, and Beaumont and Fletcher, Guy-Bray investigates how some authors used these classical models to represent homoeroticism, while others found the inherent homoeroticism of these poems to be problematic.

 Beneath the Equator -- Book Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
For instance, he notes that those who engage in homoerotic practices and who identify themselves with the term “gay”; has increased dramatically, moving from only 5% of the interview sample in 1989 to 17% by 1995(48–9).
These communities are built upon different axes: areas of homoerotic cruising and prostitution, gay-owned businesses that cater to those engaged in homoerotic culture, and gay political, health, and social organizations.
Admittedly this is a tall order, and the author has set his field of focus on male homoerotic culture, but a consideration of these issues at some level seems obligatory if one is to study sexuality as part of a broader system of social meanings.

 Past, Present, Future of the Leslie-Lohman Gay Art Foundation
However, through these special weekend shows, Charles and Fritz realized that there was a world out there that shared their love of homoerotic art and their concern about providing a place to display the works of so many great gay artists.
At this time they began to add to their own collection of homoerotic art, which raised for them the question of what would happen to all the works that they owned and loved.
This concern gave rise to the idea of someday creating a space that would be a home for gay art, where it would be preserved for future generations to appreciate.

 glbtq >> literature >> Pastoral
From 1318 to 1321, Dante (1265-1321) and a young scholar at Bologna, Giovanni del Virgilio, exchanged a brief series of Latin epistles in the form of pastoral eclogues that were instrumental in establishing the importance of pastoral for later European authors.
Ganymede's traditionally homoerotic identity underwrites his principal argument that Amyclas' departure would be an unjust abandonment of his loving shepherd comrades, and invites speculation on one of Petrarch's significant male relations.
Based on its self-conscious imitation of a homoerotic Virgilian original, and in the context of Marlowe's other works, this pastoral poem warrants a rereading attentive to its homoerotic potential.

Using original letters, primarily from the British National Library of Scotland, David Bergeron creatively argues that James' correspondence with certain men in his court constitutes a gospel of homoerotic desire.
Bergeron grounds his provocative study on an examination of the tradition of letter writing during the Renaissance and draws a connection between homosexual desire and letter writing during that historical period.
King James and Letters of Homoerotic Desire presents a modern-spelling edition of seventy-five letters exchanged between Buckingham and James.

Not all the pieces were originally made by or for gay people, also because in ancient times there was not such a labeling as "homosexual" or "gay".
But what we are collecting here, and showing among the masterpieces of the past and of our days, are those we feel more appealing to our homoerotic sensibility.

 Diversity Counts at Ferris State University
The bad news, of course, is that the history of Whitman scholarship is essentially the history of an institution's successful attempts to suppress and distort the manifestly homoerotic dimension of the author's poetry.
When I talk about the homoerotic tradition, I mean the body of ideas and terms that were available for people in the nineteenth-century, when they wanted to talk about or express love between members of the same sex.
Whitman's poetry is exemplary in its homoerotic themes precisely because the author was so completely fluent in the two dominant discourses of same-sex attraction.

 A Queer Chivalry: The Homoerotic Asceticism of Gerard Manley Hopkins by Julia F. Saville
The Jesuit poet Gerard Manley Hopkins was a practitioner of strict asceticism in its broadest definition--the refusal of physical pleasure or comfort in the interests of moral or spiritual gain.
Others decry his monasticism as the regrettably oppressive regimen from which he was able to escape only occasionally through his sensuous, sometimes overtly homoerotic verse.
Her book displaces hagiographic interpretations of the poet's life, arguing that Hopkins's poetics of homoerotic asceticism shaped his work in such a way that his career should be viewed not as a steady linear progression but as an ongoing process of negotiating his desire.

Not only is he a fine painter (unfortunately this book includes only one of the author's paintings), but he is an art historian of note, having served as both scholar and artist in residence at the Getty Center in Los Angeles and as recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2002.
Weinberg tactfully uses references from artists' statements when possible and while negotiating the place of each artist in the fabric of the time in which each worked, he also enhances the reader's appreciation by commenting on each artist's technique - a factor not usually found in surveys such as this.

When Fussell's book first came out, the homosexuality of Owen, Sassoon and others was really only just beginning to be talked about (for example, Jon Stallworthy mentions it in one single line of his biography of Owen).
It feels silly to admit it now, but when I read TGWAMM as a newly-published book (in my twenties) it is a fact that, although I was already deeply immersed in the work of Owen and Sassoon, I simply hadn't identified the homoerotic quality of it.

The Warren Cup: homoerotic love and symposial rhetoric in silver.
An exquisite example of toreutic art of the early Roman Imperial period known as the Warren Cup has been largely neglected in the scholarly literature because of the controversial nature of its scenes of homoerotic lovemaking.
This paper offers a new interpretation of the cup's date, subject matter, function, and significance and considers for the first time the cup's presumed lost mate and its possible imagery.

Secondly, the necessity to move back and forth between a narrative of events and analysis of letters sometimes leads to chronological confusion, especially in the chapter on Somerset.
Finally, while the sensitivity and sympathy that Bergeron brings to his subject are surely preferable to the rank prejudice that colored previous accounts, the lasting impression he gives of James and his lovers may in the end be too sentimental.
The book, as the title states, is about "letters of homoerotic desire." Bergeron makes little effort to go outside the confines of these letters and gauge the public reaction to James’s homoerotic relationships.
