Famous Gays - List of Famous Gays

It is not easy being a gay man in the contemporary world! With the members of the LGBT community being subjected to rampant discrimination and social ridicule, life is sure very challenging for gay men. But with growing awareness about the LGBT community, it is becoming increasingly possible for gay people to come out of the closet and build a meaningful life for themselves. The 19th century German writer Karl Heinrich Ulrichs is seen today as the pioneer of the modern gay rights movement. George Cecil Ives was another gay man who was an early homosexual law reform campaigner. Despite the pioneering works of the early gay rights activists, men like Oscar Wilde, A. E. Housman, and Ralph Waldo Emerson had to face the society’s wrath for their private homosexual activities. Alan Mathison Turing was the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence, yet he was prosecuted for homosexual acts performed in private. Achieving success in the conservative society as a gay man is a tremendous challenge and that’s why these guys are extra-special. Check out this section to know more about famous gay men.
