Research: Magnus Hirschfeld and Angela Chen

This week, on the Queer Power Hour, we’re digging deep into a century of research and writing about sexuality.

  • Eric Jansen from Out in the Bay talks with science journalist Angela Chen, who’s debut book explores asexuality and some of the myths around being asexual.
  • Eric Marcus from Making Gay History explores the research and life of pioneering sexologist Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld, who began studying sexuality in the early 1900s.
