ABSTRACT
In an ideal democracy, persons govern themselves, collectively, according to certain ethical principles agreed upon among them, principles which are defined in terms of individual rights. Democracy rejects moral codes as a means of government and seeks instead for universal social principles, truths and qualities which can be placed at the foundation of a political structure. Democracy has elevated the individual to a position of supreme importance in the social structure. However, our social regulations are still a confused mixture of ethical precepts and arbitrary moral compulsions. The homosexual minority can play a very creditable role in the evolution of human rights and in the fulfillment of the democratic ideal. All persons deserving of democratic opportunity have an equal stake in democracy.
