Archeologists say they’ve made a unique discovery in the Czech Republic: 5,000-year-old remains of a human male who was buried in a way traditionally only reserved for females.

To them, this means they’ve unearthed the first-ever gay human remains.

“From history and ethnology, we know that people from this period took funeral rites very seriously so it is highly unlikely that this positioning was a mistake,” one of the archeologists told The Telegraph.

She added that by the way the body was positioned, and the objects found buried with him, this person lived either as a gay male or a transsexual female.
