re: Long post, orientation, LGBT history
Uranian is a comprehensive term for LGBT+ people used in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is an English translation of the German word Urning and its derivatives. The term stems from the idea common in early sexology that a gay man has a partly female soul, and a lesbian has a partially male soul. While most people using the term Uranian were cis gay men, the term spread to other identities all over Europe.
