Professor Faramerz Dabhoiwala discusses “the secret history of same-sex marriage” in the Guardian

The Guardian published an extensive article on the secret history of same-sex marriage by Professor Faramerz Dabhoiwala, Fellow in History, on 24 January.

With same-sex marriage making headlines, including Stephen Fry’s recently announced wedding and the US Supreme Court’s impending decision on the legality of same-sex marriages, Professor Dabhoiwala examines the history of formal same-sex unions and asks whether same-sex marriages are really unique to the 21st century.

The article is available to read on The Guardian‘s website here. 

Professor Dabhoiwala is the author of the acclaimed The Origins of Sex: A History of the First Sexual Revolution, which is now available in paperback.
