TIL that the US had a lesbian First Lady in 1885-1886. She was Rose Cleveland--Grover Cleveland's youngest sister and Acting US First Lady before Grover married in 1886. She was also a lesbian & had a relationship with a wealthy widow, Evangeline Marrs Simpson, with explicitly erotic correspondence.

    It’s actually theorized that James Buchanan, the 15th POTUS, was actually gay.

    He never married, and had several male “companions” that he spent a lot of time with.

    Grover Cleveland was one of the only Bachelor presidents, the other being James Buchanan. Unlike Buchanan, who never married, Cleveland married Frances Clara Folsom, who was 27 years his junior and whom he had known since infancy. He raised her after her father's death at the age of 11, and married her at the age of 21, in the White House. Cleveland's White House marriage is unlikely to be repeated any time soon, but somehow I feel like US presidents being involved with girls way too young for them isn't quite as rare.

    "We cannot touch humanity at large, except as we touch humanity in the individual. We make the world a better place through our concrete relationships, not through our vague, general good will. We must each find a true partner, someone who understands and appreciates us, someone whose faith in us brings out our best efforts. Our deepest craving is for recognition—to be known by another human being for what we truly are." - Rose Cleveland

    James Buchanan was straight up gay.

    “I am now solitary and alone, having no companion in the house with me,” Buchanan wrote. “I have gone a wooing to several gentlemen, but have not succeeded with any one of them.”

    Anyone else curious what 'explicitly erotic' correspondence was like in 1886?

    Imagine the courage and inner strength it would have taken to be a lesbian in those times. What with the strap-ons being made of wood and the infrequent bathing. Also the vibrators were steam-powered.

    If a married lesbian becomes president, is her wife the Second Lady?
