The International Journal of Greek Love was a scholarly journal published between January 1965 and November 1966, covering literary, historical, sociological, psychological, and related studies centered on the phenomenon of Greek love, defined as the love between a man and an adolescent boy.
Despite its small circulation, the journal managed to have a considerable impact on gay and lesbian scholarship and opened the road for other important militant or scholarly publications.
The best researched articles are those that have been most quoted. Jonathan Drake's article on boy prostitution in Turkey remains one of the most cited sources for homosexuality in this country, while Hammond's article on Paidikion, an anonymous 570 page pederasty manuscript ostensibly written by Kenneth Searight c. 1917, and Marion Zimmer Bradley's survey of lesbian "Greek Love", are two other contributions that have been discussed.
