How does Gender impact Art Historian’s approach in examining one’s sexuality?

I am interested in examining and reviewing how Art historians in particular examine the possibility of an alternative sexuality when it differs between men or women, especially prior to the 1800’s.

I feel this direct relates to gender and society for societal ignorance on the possibility of an alternative sexuality in Women or AFAB (assigned female at birth) people against that of men. If historians are only able to make connections or even attempt to when it is about men, it will prove there is a hierarchy of importance implied to a man’s sexuality over that of a woman’s.
