Imperial Chinese Views on LGBTQ+ Issues, as Illustrated by Poetry

I analyze the unique viewpoint that Imperial Chinese poetry presents regarding LGBTQ+ issues during that time period. Drawing on a selection of poems from across Imperial China’s history, I argue that poetry imparts the perception that Imperial China (1600 B.C.E— 1912 C.E.) was accepting of certain LGBTQ+ groups to varying degrees. I then contrast this perception with historical and factual evidence, and describe what a modern audience can learn from the project’s analysis.
