Aretz Reads Ulrichs
A small, intimate group of people gathered together on a warm summer night in the courtyard of the bookstore Max & Milian to hear Bernd Aretz read from the writings of Ulrichs.
The store itself was filled with everything that could please a Gay bookworm. The hosts were very friendly. The courtyard had a cozy atmosphere -- with candlelight and wine being served.
The selections were from Ulrichs' collection of books titled Forschungen über das Räthsel der mannmännlichen Liebe (Research on the Riddle of Man-Manly Love), Matrosengeschichten (Sailor Stories), and from Ulrichs' poetry.
On the day after the reading, Bernd was seen and spoke at the birthday party on Karl-Heinrich-Ulrichs-Platz.
To say that Bernd is enthusiastic about Ulrichs is an understatement. He never fails to mention Ulrichs in his books. He has presented the works of Ulrichs before in a reading titled "Anonymous Drag Queen Meets Karl Heinrich Ulrichs." Bernd also read the testimonial at the dedication of a plaque honoring Ulrichs on a building (Am Markt 5) in Göttingen in 1997.
