ello! ERATO is the Greek goddess of erotic
poetry - but if you are after pornography you are in the wrong website!
During the last ten years in particular as volunteer worker and
sometime unpaid editor of the German gay and lesbian journal Die
Andere Welt - and as a gay activist for over 12 years - I have
written a number of articles which might be of interest to people
who don't know Die Andere Welt, or who haven't kept back
numbers. Contributions from other authors are also to be found.
In the course of time I hope that we will have an index of films
and books reviewed as well as versions of contributions in both
English and German. In some cases however, they will not be direct
The contributions reflect, of course, my interest in the film world,
in history, music, books and biography, but also my activity in
the International Lesbian and Gay Cultural Network (ILGCN)
- for which I produce the quarterly journal ERATO - in English
- and in amnesty international's LGBT group in Germany.
