Autobiography: Gay Male
 
In its first century of existence, Gay Male Autobiography has become increasingly open, frank, and unapologetic. Gay autobiography has inspired solidarity because it emphasizes both the uniqueness and the commonalities of the coming out experience, as well as the peculiarities and the mundanities of gay lives.

Military Service
 
Lesbians and gay men have often served honorably in their nations' armed services, and some have been prominent military leaders. Officially-sanctioned homophobia has often made such service difficult and sometimes impossible.

America's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy and some other countries' exclusion of gay and lesbian service members continue to devastate many lives today.

Historical evidence suggests considerable social acceptance of sexual diversity in ancient times, but India appears to be less tolerant today than it was in the past.

  Illustration from Christina Rossetti

Monsters, Witches, Ghosts, and Goblins
 
Both male and female homosexuality or homosexual elements appear throughout the broad scope of ghost and horror fiction and in horror films. Particularly since the nineteenth century, ghosts, goblins, witches, vampires, and other demonic creatures symbolize the radically different and are ascribed thoughts and deeds that are marginalized or suppressed in daily life.
