Ancient Gays Unearthed

Modern Egyptians denounce homosexuality in all forms unlike Ancient Egyptians who were open about expressing their homosexuality or making it eternal in the after life. Homosexuals in Egypt nowadays are treated as aliens when our grandparents did not mind!

Egypt's ancient tombs could hold the secret to the world's first gay kiss, according to Egyptologists, who believe that one tomb might have held the world's first recorded same-sex couple.

The 4,000-year-old tomb in Sakkara, near Cairo, was discovered in 1964. It was first thought that the two men buried inside may have been twins; its carvings depict the two men together. However, new scholarship unveiled at a Swansea University conference last month in Wales suggests that the paintings lining the tomb point to a more romantic relationship

Twins? Kissing? Intimacy depicted? Incest? That's frowned upon and even illegal in many parts of the world, and very disturbing...

I believe the article was saying that they *first* thought the two men were twins, but have lated decided they were a couple and not related.

I really enjoy this blog "Freedom for Egyptians".

The timeless beauty and culture of Egypt should continually inspire us beyond the prejudices and limitations of current creeds. The love of life in all it's forms and diversity is in the legacy of the art which ancient Egyptians bequeathed all humanity.
