Last long rumour of Abraham Lincoln, gay or not!November 3rd, 2008 - 2:09 pm ICT by Bupha Ravirot
The sixteenth President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln who died over 140 years ago, but his sexual preference rumour is going to last for ever.
Might be the effect from coming the president election in America that leads into digging of the past presidents biography where Abraham Lincoln is one of the most interesting case.
The chief evidence, of Lincoln’s homosexual inclination was his relationship with Joshua Speed, a handsome of his, both met in 1837 and lived together for 4 years. But before that he met Billy Greene and they shared a narrow bedroom together.
Carol Lloyd wrote in Salon in 1999. “For the next four years the two men shared that bed along with their most private fears and desires.”
Regarding Tripp surveys only seven person involved with in Lincoln’s life, four with men and three with women. But relations with women are either problematic or distant.
Lincoln was married to Mary Todd until his death in 1865. They had four children. But His relationship with Joshua Speed also developed until their death though Joshua Speed married to Fanny Hennings.
However the question of Lincoln’s sexuality can never be answered. But that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be asked.
