Trans Saints and Gay Vikings: Notes on Queering the Past
“Queer people and trans people have always existed and we will always exist.”
In this episode, we’re exploring trans and gender-nonconforming saints, gods, and everyday people from the ancient and medieval past (and why their stories are so relevant to the present). Our guides on this journey are Dr Jonah Coman, a historian of medieval queer history and trans theology, and Eirnin Jefford Franks, a historian of Viking age religion and queerness.
