“Homosexuality is assuredly no advantage, but it is nothing to be ashamed of, no vice, no degradation; it cannot be classified as an illness; we consider it to be a variation of the sexual function, produced by a certain arrest of sexual development.

It is a great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a crime – and a cruelty, too.”
-Sigmund Freud (1856 – 1939)
