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]
