Is this the earliest representation of a gay couple?
This might be the earliest representation of a gay couple.
The tomb of Niankhkhnum and Khnumhotep has many scenes of two men in intimate embraces....and they were both manicurists. The tomb was discovered in 1964 and back then nobody thought anything about the illustrations. Now, Egyptologists are having a second look and many believe that they are, indeed, a same-sex couple.
