Thank Esugenas for finding this.

Gendering Robin Hood
Details the studies of Stephen Knight, head of the English Literature section at the University of Wales in Cardiff. His 1994 book Robin Hood: A Complete Study of the English Outlaw is considered one of the best books on the Robin Hood legend. In July 1999 his comments (and the press coverage of those comments) caused quite a stir, as it was implied that Robin Hood might have been gay.

The World History of Male Love
A very interesting site cataloging the history of male love, particuarly through the medium of art. Includes an extensive museum section with art and literature on the subject from cultures around the world.
