The Epic of Gilgamesh is one of the great stories about homosexual romance, evolving out of the historical mists of writing's origin in 3000 B.C.E. Sumeria, compiled into a comprehensive written form by around 1500 B.C.E., and afterwards forgotten by later Western cultures until its rediscovery in the 19th century. In tonight's presentation, Mitch Walker, longtime gay activist and psychologist, will invite his audience to participate in experiencing this tale as it was originally intended—orally. Mitch will read a version prepared in the early 1990s to reflect a more gay-affirmative perspective on the story's overall integration as a full arc of individuation. After relating the saga and time permitting, Mitch will also share the first sections for his gay Jungian analysis of the epic, "The Romance of Gilgamesh," the remainder of which will be the topic of next month's Uranian Psychoanalytic Club meeting.
