Sent: 16 October 2012 16:46 The Omaha Daily Bee, a newspaper published in Omaha, Nebraska, uses the word "homo-sexual" in an article headed "Cause and Cure of Anarchy." This is the earliest-known use of the word homosexual in the U.S. press. If you know of an earlier reference, let me know. http://outhistory.org/wiki/Omaha_Daily_Bee_(Omaha,_Nebraska):_%22homo-sexual,%22_December_16,_1898 Jonathan Ned Katz Founder, Co-Director, OutHistory.org http://www.outhistory.org/wiki/Main_Page LGBTQ History by the LGBTQ Community: Fight Against Forgetting!
