        • found: Norton, R. Walt Whitman, prophet of gay liberation, via Gay history & literature website, 18 November 1999, updated 20 June 2008, viewed on November 21, 2018(Walt Whitman; born in Long Island, New York, in 1819; in 1925 the original hand-written manuscript of his best-known "heterosexual" love poem, Once I Pass'd Through A Populous City, was discovered, and it revealed that Whitman had reversed the sex of the beloved in order to make it presentable for publication. Such a subterfuge of course suggests that Whitman, far from being an innocent, was aware of the "queer" nature of his passions; it seems likely that this records Whitman's first homosexual experience, that he did not quite understand it though he was not repulsed by it, and that he ran away to avoid its full implication, and perhaps to avoid a scandal; in the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass he had not yet ripped open his own closet door to celebrate his basic message, gay love. Sometime in 1858 or 1859 he experienced his second love affair, this time with a man one of whose initials is "M" (Whitman often censored his own notebooks, leaving just the bare obscurities). This affair aparently involved a completely frank acceptance of himself as homosexual; Because Whitman is part of the canon of American literature taught in the classrooms, there is still much resistance to labelling him gay, despite some fairly well documented evidence) -
