Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • DECEMBER 29, 2000 13 Early gay history: Tales of persecution *- Continued from Page 12 • Several hundred men a year were prosecuted for homosexuality in Florence, Italy, during this century. • Despite frequent persecution, male beauty is frequently celebrated by male Renaissance artists: Michelangelo's dedication of love sonnets and sculptures to Roman nobleman Tommaso de' Cavalieri is only one notable example. 1500-1600 • While lesbian relationships usually attracted less attention from men in power, in the Plymouth colony in America, two women were charged with "lewd behavior each with the other upon a bed." • In 1578, a Roman church celebrated several "marriages" between Portuguese men, but the couples are later arrested and executed. 1600-1700 • In 1640, Anglican bishop John Atherton is executed by hanging for sodomy, incest and England's King Edward II (ruler, 1307-1327) (above), fathered lour with Isabella of Spain, but his true love was Piers Gaveston. Burning was the common punishment for 'sodomites' in Europe for several centuries. This manuscript illustration from 14S3 depicts the burning of Richard Puller and his page, Zurich, the year before.

Alabama FDic 713/529-0001 adultery; pamphlets distributed at the time feature drawings of Atherton and his male lover, John Guide. 1800-1900 • As physicians increase their study of mental illnesses, the medicalization of homosexuality in Western society began in earnest, as those engaged in same-sex activities were labeled sick instead of simply sinners—a belief that persists until the present day, although the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its official list of mental disorders in 1973. 1900-2000 The explosion in gay culture in the last 100 years is, of course, too much to condense into a few brief words, as gays became more and more organized into distinct communities, that then began to direct their energies back outward to fight for inclusion and equality in larger society. • During World War FJ, gay men and lesbians joined Jews, Gypsies and others on the German hit list as Adolf Hitler attempted to control the world through a mix of military might and social cleansing. During the Holocaust, gay men were forced to wear pink triangles in the concentration camps; lesbians, grouped with other "undesirables," wore black triangles. • In 1969, patrons at the Stonewall Inn, a New York City gay bar, fought back against an all too common police raid, in what would come to be seen as the start of the modem gay rights movement. • By the late 1970s and the 1980s, gay activists found their work, and their lives, cut short by AIDS, which rapidly claimed thousands. But the swift organizing to fight the disease and care for the dying, often in the face of indifference or hostility from mainstream institutions, helped build the community groups and organizing structures that would contribute to major gay rights victories for the rest of the century. • In 2000, the Netherlands became the first country in the world to extend full, legal marriage to gay couples. In June 1969, angry patrons fought bock after a routine police raid at the Stonewall Inn, a New York City gay bar, in what many consider the beginning of the modern gay rights movement. *mn A Center for CFS& Fibromyalgia
