Gay rights activism through the ages.

NYTimes review of Strangers.

I was very pleased to discover that the Marquis de Condorcet -- one of my personal heroes, for having invented the science of social choice theory -- turns out to also be one of the earliest advocates of gay rights, depsite being het himself, so far as anyone knows. "'Sodomy violates the right of no man,' Condorcet declared to France's National Assembly in the late 18th century."

The book under review in the linked/quoted article sounds pretty cool.
