Karl-Heinrich Ulrichs comes out of the Closet [...]

Karl-Heinrich Ulrichs (1825 1895), pioneer gay rights activist, was born Germany.

In 1862, Ulrichs took the momentous step of telling his family and friends that he was, in his own word, a Uranian. He also wrote a statement of legal and moral support for a man arrested for homosexual offences. This was the first public "coming out" and the first recorded example of gay rights activism. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Heinrich_Ulrichs [Aug 2004]
