Tasmanian Companion to History: Homosexuality

Frames homosexuality as a cultural import:

“Because we know virtually nothing about the place of same-sex relationships in indigenous Tasmanian culture, the island’s homosexual history begins with early explorers like Matthew Flinders, who, with George Bass, circumnavigated Tasmania in 1798�99, proving it an island.”
