Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519)
"Allegedly, at 24, da Vinci was arrested with a group of fellow young companions (including the “model”/servant Salai) and charged with sodomy. No witnesses came forward, so the charges were dropped after da Vinci spent two months in jail. Despite it officially being a serious offense, it wasn’t that big of a deal, as “anonymous charges like this were brought against people just for a nuisance” and Renaissance Florentines made less distinctions about sexuality than in today’s society."  via
