Maya De Leo’s book presentation and conversation with Mila Fumini
A wide-ranging essay that offers an unprecedented vision of contemporary history. Maya De Leo, professor of History of Homosexuality at the University of Turin, wrote a fascinating volume, published by Einaudi, that fully traces the cultural history of the western LGBTQ + community from the 18th century to the present day. The author uses documentary and literary sources to trace the origins, the varied composition and the different battles that marked the beginning of a secular movement. Through its battles, the LGBTQ + movement, which mixes a wide variety of geographical and social elements, has overcome every barrier and has changed our present.
Maya De Leo is adjunct professor of History of Homosexuality of the DAMS (Drama, Arts and Music Studies) Degree Course of the University of Turin and has been adjunct professor of Gender History of the Master & Degree Course in Historical Sciences of the University of Genoa. She is a scholar of LGBT + history and queer theory who obtained a PhD in History at the University of Pisa with a research dedicated to the representations of homosexuality between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
