You're not gonna beat Wittgenstein. He's like the Rick Sanchez of philosophy, and he happened to be gay.
Alexander the Great
This thread has just been conquered.
King James I of England, the guy behind the creation of the King James Bible. He was a decent king, especially compared to his son Charles (whose head got chopped off for being such a shitty king)
Some evidence suggesting he slept with men.
No evidence suggesting he slept with women.
I just thought of something. You know those people who claim that homosexuality is genetic? If that's the case, then why hasn't the gay gene died out because gays don't have children?
He means "Exclusively sleeping with the same sex" homosexuality.
Prior to modern times, most people who had the urge to sleep with men would still be in relationships with both men and women.
Not all of course, just a trend.

He was fairly instrumental in beginning the normalization process of homosexuality and gay rights in America.
I hate to go full /pol/, but enjoy the following anecdote:
>200-level political science class on processes of change and revolution
>watch a bunch of documentaries on recent American movements, one of which is on Stonewall
>An elderly gay man comes on screen talking about how terrible it was to be gay in the city prior to the riots
>Not an exact quote, but from memory: "We weren't allowed to meet our partners openly, so we would go down to the docks and rent a meat packing trailer. Then 100 or so of us would get in and just have sex in a big pile. You wouldn't know whose dick was in you, you just had to go with whoever you found, because you didn't know when you'd get another chance! Anyway we had to clear out by morning so they could clear the trailer out and put meat in it."
I looked around and half the class were visibly trying to hide their disgust. The other half had the smug tolerance face on. Ayyy.
Yeah it's bad
I'm gay and a lot of the culture is pretty disgusting, though it's more understandable in a time period when gays are desperate to get any at all without getting in trouble.
Personally I love the idea of monogamy, but it's a little hard to come by. Seems like some straights are having that problem too though nowadays.
No, he did not.
His assistant was pretty heavily into cock though.
It's worth noting of course that accusations of sodomy were fairly common place in Florence, especially anonymous ones.
It was an excellent smear tactic.
I mean he was into at least one chick.
Have the biggest fucking daddy issues seen outside of Russian emperors and WASPy chicks.
