LGBT history

A+ A-

Are you guys interested in LGBT history. I love history in general so yeah I like to know more about our community and to be honest knowing about LGBT people and their contribution to the human evolution through out the ages makes me more proud.

  • I love LGBT history as well...in both the West and the East there are so many great people who contributed to the world and also happened to be LGBT! From gay pharos in Egypt to Leonardo Da Vinci, gay people have really shaped the world we live in today

  • A lot of the greats, especially artists had the most intense emotional struggles in their lives. I feel terrible for anybody who has thoughts of suicide and feels it is the only way out...I have felt that way before too. But it makes me so sad to hear of people who don't want to go on with their life. We will all experience death, there is no doubt about that. So, in my opinion, why rush it? There is so much you can do in life, especially once you realize that the only way you can go is up. Benjamin Franklin once said (pretty hilariously) , "only two things in life are certain: death, and taxes." So why rush either of those? :P

    Don't forget Elanor Roosevelt, Marlyin Monroe, Marie Antoinette, Virginia Woolf (my girlfriend), Emily Dickinson (my wife), and Florence Nightingale. Who were either lesbians or bi and shaped modern history.

      I wasn't surprised when I knew tbh, bisexual people's identity was always erased all through history. From one side you have Marilyn Monroe who had several relationships with women whom later admitted that (in full details) in their autobiographies, but on the other side you have Freddie Mercury who was known as the most famous gay musician, but in fact was bisexual.

      Yeah even the Russian government (which is homophobic) when they made a book about the biography of Tchaikovsky they refused to speak about his sexuality and how he was forced to suicide.
