Get ready to dive into LGBTQ+ history with the upcoming Dekkoo-original series Historical Homos!

A brand-new Dekkoo-original video podcast series from Executive Producer Zachary Quinto, Historical Homos is a no-fucks-given guide to LGBTQ+ history! Hosts Donal Brophy and Sebastian Hendra are proud to introduce you to some of the gayest stories never told.

Buckle up for one of the most infamous-and lesser-known-gay couples in Greek mythology: Zeus and Ganymede, originators of the divine Daddy-Twink dichotomy. In Episode 1 of Historical Homos, we’ll discover what these myths tell us about ancient Greek homosexuality and how they provided much-needed PR for the complex reality between mortal sheets.

Episode Two tells the unbelievably wild and weird life story of the Chevalier d’Éon, transgender spy, soldier and sleuth of the Enlightenment. Assigned male at birth, Charles eventually transitioned to become Charlotte, before discovering the humiliating constraints of life as an 18th century woman.

William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe were both brilliant dramatists… and maybe bisexual? In Episode Three, we unpack the rumors, the hearsay and the straight-up gay poems that suggest these titans of English literature were also ridiculously good-looking… and gay.

Finally, Episode 4 offers up a review of the life and loves of Virginia Woolf. We dive deep into her affair with Vita Sackville-West, leading London lesbian of her day, and relive the parties thrown by the Bloomsbury Set, a group of young Modernists who continued the British tradition of plumbing the nation’s bottomless depths of homosexuality. (Or should we say bottom-full?)

The Dekkoo-Original Comedy Series Marriage of Inconvenience is Now Available!

In the brand new Dekkoo-Original Comedy Series Marriage of Inconvenience, two total strangers entering a witness protection program must pretend to be a happily married couple in order to hide their identities from the dangerous people who want them dead!

Franklin (David Singletary) is an even-tempered English professor who prides himself on his attention to detail in every area of his carefully structured life. Owen (Jason T. Gaffney) is a messy, street-smart dropout with anger issues, forced into a life of crime against his will.

About the only thing Franklin and Owen have in common is that they’re gay. Now, living together in a very small house as “Mr. and Mr. Fulton,” they find they have something else in common: they can’t stand each other. But both men have complicated pasts, with some very bad people relentlessly hunting them down.

With their lives on the line, Owen and Franklin are stuck with each other, for better or worse, hoping that it’s not literally a “til death do we part” situation.

Watch the trailer for Marriage of Inconvenience below. The full first season is now available on Dekkoo!
