The Sacred Band of Thebes was an ancient greek army composed entirely of gay men.
As Sebastian Castro told Philippine Star on November 4th, 2013: “It was believed that if you fought next to the person you loved, you would fight much harder to keep them alive. This led the generals to have the lovers fight alongside one another in battle. I can’t think of anything more beautiful — beautiful and sexy… I love the idea of dragging my followers, or any LGBT for that matter, into this world where you are fighting with, fighting for and possibly dying for the one you love. The ultimate message: You belong. Two words gay kids don’t hear enough and don’t feel enough. ”
