Sneak Peak at Dr. Bernadette Brooten’s Ancient Roman Lesbian Love Spells

We are pleased to announce Dr. Bernadette Brooten, MacArthur Genius and professor at Brandeis University, will be joining director John Scagliotti in a special Q&A event after the world premiere screening of “Before Homosexuals: The Prequel to Before Stonewall”. Bernadette is one of the stars of the film, and shares her amazing work investigating ancient Roman lesbian love spells. The finding of love spells disproved what many scholars had taken for granted: that there was little or no record of women’s involvement with same-sex affairs in the ancient world. Bernadette’s pioneering work shattered that assumption and “Before Homosexuals” highlights a number of stories about women and sex from the distant past.
Tickets will be available March 23rd, 2017 for the world premiere screening event of “Before Homosexuals: The Prequel to Before Stonewall” at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston as part of the 33rd annual Wicked Queer LGBT Film Festival. Join director John Scagliotti and Dr. Bernadette Brooten at 2PM on April 8, 2017 and stay after the screening for a lively Q&A session.
Tickets go on sale March 23rd at 10:00AM at http://www.mfa.org/programs/film/before-homosexuals
We offer a small tease of Bernadette’s discovery of lesbian love spells.
