John Scagliotti, executive producer of the landmark film Before Stonewall, here guides us in a wondrous tour of erotic history, poetry and visual art in his new documentary on same-sex desire - from ancient times to Victorian crimes.

Traveling all over the world and talking with dozens of experts, he revels in lesbian love spells from ancient Rome, censored chapters of the Kamasutra, Native American two-spirit rituals and much more. A prequel to Before Stonewall, Before Homosexuals unearths the diverse and fascinating garden of human same-sexual desire.

"'Before Homosexuals' is our history. This film is the history lesson we all need: the affirmation of same-sex love that was etched in stone some 2,500 years ago." - John Scagliotti, Filmmaker

"The film had this profound effect on us, because for the first time in one place here was ALL of our history, from cavemen days all the way up to modern times. That was the true gift of this documentary." - Ali Naro, Movies Over the Rainbow

"Eye-opening! With this being the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots it is the perfect time for us to both acknowledge and celebrate our past as it has helped shaped who we all our today." - QueerGuru

"The evidence is there. The reason it hasn't been studied until quite recently was simply the taboo against talking about the unmentionable sin... Incredible." - Louis Crompton, Ph.D., Author of Homosexuality and Civilization

"Without preserving this, our lives are totally wiped depends upon each fragment of information being saved." - Bernadette Brooten, Ph.D., Author of Love Between Women
