“Most historians and social scientists agree that homosexuality itself has existed roughly the same degree in all times and places. While the numbers may have remained relatively constant, gay visibility has fluctuated wildly, depending on the prevailing climate. The levels of homophobia have fluctuated as well, and a pattern emerges: the greater the visibility, the greater were the antihomosexual feelings. For homosexual men and women, history has been a grotesque seesaw: guarded toleration followed by angry backlash.”

William Wright (Harvard’s Secret Court)
