A formal ban on books written by Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, the pioneer of gay rights, is rescinded in Saxony, Germany, six days after they were originally confiscated and banned.

Some gay rights activists treat this date, rather than the Stonewall Riots, as the birth of the modern gay rights movement. Karl Heinrich Ulrichs moves around Germany a lot, writing and speaking, and he frequently gets into trouble with the law over his statements in defense of homosexuality being normal and natural.
