Salvador Dali's Forbidden Love

Dali and Lorca lovers? Well, what is the world coming to? They will be telling us next that Shakespeare was bisexual and Oscar took a few walks on the wilde side. Joking apart, not a lot of people know about these two friends. Let fill in the gaps.

From the article:
In the conservative and catholic Spain of 1922, at the eve of the Spanish Civil War, Dali who was only 18, already wishes to become a genius. He meets Federico Garcia Lorca and Luis Bunuel at the Madrid University. They soon become the nucleus of the modern group. Federico Garcia Lorca is infatuated with Salvador Dali and their friendship becomes more and more intimate.
