Ghandi Was Gay? You Learn Something New Everyday

Just came across an interesting post at Elephant Journal via Gawker and Wall Street Journal, regarding Mahatma Ghandi and his sexuality (two things I thought would never cross paths in my mind).

According to the articles, Ghandi was in love with a German body builder named Hermann (via WSJ):
"... because the love of his life was a German-Jewish architect and bodybuilder, Hermann Kallenbach, for whom Gandhi left his wife in 1908. "Your portrait (the only one) stands on my mantelpiece in my bedroom," he wrote to Kallenbach. "The mantelpiece is opposite to the bed."
Here is a picture of the happy couple (via Wikipedia):
