Danny and Derek welcome back Samuel Huneke, assistant professor of history at George Mason University, to discuss his book States of Liberation: Gay Men between Dictatorship and Democracy in Cold War Germany. In this episode, they pick up at the end of World War I, discussing domestic factors in that loss and the narrative around it, the Weimar constitution and Paragraph 175, queer writers of the time such as Friedrich Radszuweit and Klaus Mann, high profile gay fascists like Ernst Röhm, and more.
