ABSTRACT
This article presents author's view, who is a gay, regarding freedom sought in the U.S. on the basis of one's sexual orientation. The author says that though he has traveled Islamic, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, and Hindu nations, the richest and poorest of nations, the most war-torn and peaceful of nations and there is only one nation where he has been afraid to hold another man's hand out of concern for own safety: the United States of America. History is another realm that has often hidden gay love. Try locating these facts in a Schoolbook: Ancient Greek and Roman societies, the foundation of modern civilization, regarded homoeroticism as the highest form of love. Before the European devastation of Native American cultures, indigenous peoples revered gays for their balance of male and female qualities.
