- Come learn the LGBTQ stories behind some of Europe's most spectacular castles and palaces on this 75 minute Zoom with Professor Andrew Lear!
- Castles and palaces are the stuff of dreams. We go to visit them whenever we go to a foreign country and gawk at their splendor. But though they are often rather queeny, we tend to assume that their histories are straight. NOT!!! In fact, lots of castles and palaces have LGBTQ stories! And this is the tour to find out about them on. Come learn about the secret stories behind the palaces of Roman Caesars, Renaissance papal nephews, Louis XIV’s brother, and more on this tour of the Fairy Tale Castles of Europe.
