I was delighted to come across your site. I have constructed a related site at http://www.queermap.com
that site invites visitors to explore the cultural meanings and social power of homosexuality.

Homosexuality is more than the ordinary, enduring fact of same-sex sexual preference. It is also a complex system of symbolic meanings elaborated over centuries. Contemporary gay and lesbian people are forced to an encounter with these meanings. We are vilified and demonized by a homophobic culture.

The archetypes, stereotypes and images in which we are enmeshed are an enormous burden. They are also a gigantic opportunity. Gay and lesbian people are linked to myth, history, and the capacity to transform society.
