We’ve always been here. We’ve always been in plain sight. We’ve always been making history. And according to a new documentary, Lover Of Men, we were one of the most consequential people in American history.

Lover Of Men documents and explores President Abraham Lincoln’s romantic relationships with men. Using never before seen photographs and letters preeminent Lincoln scholars paint an intimate portrait of Lincoln’s private and passionate same-sex entanglements.
