Rosetta Stone and the LBGTQ CommunityThe Rosetta Stone was a slab found just before the turn of the 19th century in Memphis, Egypt; in short, it was instrumental in deciphering the hieroglyphics of the ancient Egyptians. Also, in case you’re unaware, Rosetta Stone is language software that helps its users learn foreign languages.
