Notes:
Gertrude Stein wrote one of the first "coming out" stories and may be the first author to put the word "gay" in print as a reference to same-sex relationships.

  • GERTRUDE STEIN IN CONVERSATION …_One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh; but the earth abideth forever… The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to the place where he arose… The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits…… All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return…
    Ernest Hemingway  --  The Sun Also Rises
