Truth be told… There hasn’t been a lot of diversity when it comes to United States presidents. In fact, besides Barack Obama, the position has exclusively gone to older white men. One of those old white men--JFK-- was Catholic and that was a big deal. Another old white guy-- James Buchanan-- was… gay? Maybe. Today we’ll talk about him, his companion, and their relationship in the years just before the Civil War. Dr. Eric Cervini is with us again this week as we dive into part 4 of our series on The Queer History of the United States. Be sure to follow Eric on IG!
