Thats very true. I wouldn't have liked it as much if all the facts weren't accurate.

Here is an excerpt from an article I found:

http://www.berkeleyrep.org/HTML/SchoolOfTheatre/matguide_NB. html

He traveled his own path to fame

Regina Hackett, Seattle Post-Intelligencer Art Critic

"Was Leonardo gay? Almost certainly yes. Instead of marrying and having children, he had a lifetime male companion, one of the few people mentioned by name in his will.

Besides, the practice of sodomy was so widespread in 15th-century Florence that the Germans referred to all homosexuals as Florentines. Leonardo and his circle were accused of homosexuality, but the charge had little or no influence on his career.

A major bar to his advancement (and blessing in disguise) was not his sexual orientation but his birth status, the fact that his parents weren't married to each other. For this reason, he was not able to pursue university studies, where he would have learned to seek knowledge in approved texts, looking backward, not forward."

The key words in the article are "almost certainly". Even though most academics believe that Leonardo was gay, they have no solid proof.

In that period, it really was not a big deal if men were gay because almost EVERY man had bisexual tendencies. Even Caesar had his fun with the boys. Over the last century, homosexualism has become a bigger deal because gay men want to legal rights which say that they specifacally have rihgts. Before, most men were bisexual and understood that they have to procreate.
