Cambridge Was, Is Gay

Cambridge University’s gay past goes beyond furtive hand jobs and other sexual adventures. Journo Graeme Grant uncovered some intriguing evidence of same-sex love at the storied school: “[A 1619 memorial] was commissioned by the college’s master Dr John Gostlin in memory of himself and his friend Dr Thomas Legge, sometime Vice-Chancellor of the University. A flaming heart held aloft by two hands bears the inscription ‘Love joined them living. So may the earth join them in their burial. Oh Legge, Gostlin’s heart you still have with you’.” Homos can be so sentimental! [Huliq]
