just as I want to anyway and don t care if they all despise me. Bessie Smith was bisexual.
Homophobia may have stopped you from knowing about Bessie Smith. Who else does
homophobia stop you from knowing?
"Walt Whitman" 
Walt Whitman (1819 1892)  Great American poet; Believed to be gay.  We Two Boys
Together Clinging.  We two boys together clinging, One the other never leaving, Up and
down the roads going, North and South excursions making, Power enjoying, elbows
stretching, fingers clutching, Arm d and fearless, eating, drinking, sleeping, loving, No
law less than ourselves owning, sailing, soldiering, thieving, threatening Misers, menial,
priests alarming, air breathing, water drinking, on the turf or sea beach dancing, Cities
wrenching, ease scorning, statues mocking, feebleness chasing, Fulfilling our foray. (from
the Calamus poems in Leaves of Grass).  Homophobia may have stopped you from know
