London, May 16 (Reuters) Following is a notable quote from history.

''There is objective proof that homosexuality is more interesting than heterosexuality. It's that one knows a considerable number of heterosexuals who would wish to become homosexuals, whereas one knows very few homosexuals who would really like to become heterosexuals.'' -- French philosopher and historian Michel Foucault. Germany's parliament passed legislation on May 17, 2002, allowing around 50,000 gay men prosecuted by the Nazis because of their sexuality to be pardoned, even posthumously.
