Need help finding resources on Walt Whitman and homosexualtiy?

I'm doing a research project for a literature course. My topic is Walt Whitman and homosexuality. I need to find some good resources. I need both books and journal articles, but I've been having an especially hard time finding good journal articles. Does anyone have any suggestions of resources I can use?

    Homosexuality is a sin. (Romans 1:24-27)

    Fornicators (people who indulge in unlawful sexual intercourse outside of marriage), will not inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9,10). ~ That is, of course, unless they repent, like I did.

    The sexually immoral shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone." (Rev. 21:7,8) ~ So if you stay bound up with being sexually immoral, then you will be right there with the murderers who will burn in the lake of fire, unless you repent.

    Jesus said, "fornications (The Greek word is porneia and it means illicit sexual intercourse, homosexuality, lesbianism, intercourse with animals, intercourse with close relatives)... These are the things which defile a man." (Matthew 15:19,20)

    He who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8). ~ That is talking about habitually sinful conduct, because that chapter is talking about what one practices. If you slip up and stumble, He will forgive you if you confess to Him and ask for forgiveness, because He is faithful and just to forgive you (1 John 1:9). But in order to rightfully claim 1 John 1:9, you must be doing the conditions found in 1:6,7. You must not be walking in darkness (practicing sin). You must be walking in the light. You can't be bound up in sin, and then just confess those sins you are a slave to, and get forgiveness. It does not work that way.
