The June issue features the June cover featuring the hosts, creators, and collaborators of Dekkoo’s new pride series called, “Historical Homos.”
Dekkoo.com, a subscription streaming service dedicated to gay men, celebrates Pride month with an original series executive produced by Zachary Quinto. Historical Homos is a provocative and often hysterically funny guide to queer history. For thousands of years, world historians have kept some of the greatest names in civilization in the closet. Socrates, Virginia Woolf, Michelangelo, and Shakespeare – were all members of the rainbow tribe. In Historical Homos, hosts Bash and Donal Brophy uncover and unload the most tantalizing dish on some of these great queers of yesteryear. Did you know that Louis XIV’s brother, Philippe, dressed up in drag and that Leonardo da Vinci was arrested for sodomy twice? Or that Eleanor Rykener, a 13th-century trans sex worker, claimed in court records that her best clients were monks because they paid more? Directed by Brendan Patrick Hughes, written by Bash, produced by Idyllwild Pictures, and executive produced by Emrhys Cooper, Brian Sokel, and Zachary Quinto, Historical Homos premieres Friday, June 9, on Dekkoo, with a new episode streaming every Friday through Pride month.
