LOVE LETTERS BETWEEN TWO MEN DURING WORLD WAR II HAVE BEEN FOUND

This week various love letters between two men in the decade of the 40’s have been found, during World War II. These, represent the love story between Gilbert Bradley, a soldier who was on training to go fight in the WWII, when he fell in love with another man, to whom he sent hundreds of letters signed with the acronym G, to avoid suspicions.

All letters started with “My darling boy”, and this is one example:

“There’s nothing else I want than to have you with me constantly. I can see, or so I imagine, the reaction of your mother and your father. The rest of the world has no idea of the meaning of our love… They don’t know what love is”.

Sometimes, Gilbert would ask him to destroy the letters to avoid problems, some others he would fantasize with these letters being exposed in the future as a proof of their love. In fact, nowadays these letters are exposed in the Museum of Owestry.

A great example showing homosexuality is not a trend, but a condition that has always existed. But more than a condition, it’s just another way of loving.
