Homosexuality is the romantic/sexual attraction between two members of the same sex.
The first recorded evidence of homosexuality is found in Mesopotamia, circa
3000 B.C where artifacts have been discovered depicting same sex
couples. Alexander the Great is also recorded as having had a same sex
For a long time homosexuality was a socially awkward practice but it has since become something easier to accept.
Clinically, homosexuality had been considered a mental illness until 1973; when the APA (American Psychological Association) changed it's admission.
Why the change?
In 1973 the changing social norms & attitudes; as well as the new up and coming politically active gay community led the Board of Directors of the American Psychiatric Association
to remove homosexuality from the
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders
