Professor Richard Bruce Parkinson's main interest is ancient Egyptian poetry of the classic age (1940–1640 BC). As well as the philological study of manuscripts, he is also interested in issues of sexuality in Ancient Egyptian culture, and from this he has published on LGBT history across world cultures.

In A Great Unrecorded History. LGBT Heritage and World Cultures, he discusses how to mobilise historical research into sexuality for maximum impact and the institutional, cultural and political issues that can be at stake, and suggests some of the possible uses of LGBTQ history.
