Eric is a journalist, author, and the host of Making Gay History, The Podcast. Growing up what books he could find about being gay were disturbing. This inspired him to set out to write the books he wished had been on the shelves when he was a young person. To do that, he began interviewing people and started to uncover the history of our queer ancestors. In the process he recorded these interviews and learned that ultimately, most of them rejected what society said about them, they followed their passions and instincts, and they helped change the world. Thirty years later after writing the book Eric would carry the torch again bringing the stories to life in a whole new way.
