Mesolithic rock art in Sicily depicts phallic male figures in pairs that have been interpreted variously, including as depictions of homosexual intercourse.
Wow, we've been around for a long time haven't we?
Iceblink saidWhat? How can that be? The earth is only 6000 years old!
malefeet saidWho was the very first gay man in recorded history ?Adam. Because Eve wasn't created till he broke up with his bf and needed to reproduce another one.
AMoonHawk saidWell duh!! ... isn't it obvious .... it was Able from the Hebrew Bible, Cain and Abel.
He was a gardener, had to to have the perfectly flawless arrangement and was bullied by Cain.
ZbmwM5 saidAlexander the great?
TheChrisGuy saidMr. Flintsone.
thenes saidNeither Narcissis nor Adam count as neither are in "recorded history."
To the OP, I think you'll be hard pressed to find a definitive answer, because homosexuality as we know it today (men exclusively engaged in same sex activity) is a relatively modern concept. It didn't exist as such during the Greek or Roman eras (part of the reason why the original condemnations supposedly against homosexuality actually couldn't have been).
AMoonHawk saidLet's see, the oldest recorded history would be the probably the ancient Sumerian cuneiform writing on clay tablets and the story of Gilgamesh. IDK, I read the story and it seemed to me that Gilgamesh was crushin' on Enkido, so if we are going by the oldest writings known to man, then I'd have to say it was Gilgamesh. Not sure, but I think I read somewhere, that it was thought that Gilgamesh might have been Ramses the first.
