Washington Post did an article about the Public Universal Friend, the genderless evangelist who lived in the early US, about 200 years ago. Two things in this article I haven't seen before:

1) A painting of the Friend, this one presumably from life.

2) "...someone asked if the Friend identified as either male or female ... The Friend simply replied: 'I am that I am.'"
