01-31-1900 – 07-23-1982 Betty Parsons (Born Betty Bierne Pierson) – Born in New York City, New York. She was an American artist, art dealer, and collector, known for her early promotion of Abstract Expressionism. In 1920, she married Schuyler Livingston Parson, a rich, alcoholic gay man. 

After the couple divorced in 1923, Betty Parsons, as she was called for the rest of her life, moved to Paris. For the eight or ten years that she lived in France, she had an affair with the English painter Adge Baker. The two women shared a house together for six years on Rue Boulard in Montparnasse. They would remain friends for the rest of her life. Parsons moved back to the U.S. in 1933. During the McCarthy years she went back into the closet, but supported gay, lesbian, and bisexual artists during this time of oppression. From the mid-1940s until the mid-1950s, she was involved with actress and painter, Strelsa van Scriver. In 1946, she opened the Betty Parsons Gallery in New York City and exhibited for the first time publicly Abstract Expressionist.

1902 – American actress Tallulah Bankhead (January 31, 1902 – December 12, 1968) was born in Huntsville, Alabama. She was an American actress of the stage and screen. Bankhead was known for her husky voice, outrageous personality, and devastating wit. Originating some of the 20th century theater’s preeminent roles in comedy and melodrama, she gained acclaim as an actress on both sides of the Atlantic. Bankhead became an icon of the tempestuous, flamboyant actress, and her unique voice and mannerisms are often subject to imitation and parody. In her personal life, Bankhead struggled with alcoholism and drug addiction, and was infamous for her uninhibited sex life. Rumors about Bankhead’s sex life have lingered for years, and she was linked romantically with many notable female personalities of the day, including Greta GarboMarlene DietrichKatherine CornellEva Le GallienneHope WilliamsBeatrice Lillie, and Alla Nazimova, as well as writer Mercedes de Acosta and singer Billie Holiday. Actress Patsy Kelly confirmed she had a sexual relationship with Bankhead when she worked for her as a personal assistant. Bankhead never publicly described herself as being bisexual. She did, however, describe herself as “ambisextrous”.

2006 — Washington State Governor Chris Gregoire signs into law a bill prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. In a slightly convoluted way, state law defines “sexual orientation” as including “gender identity.” Thus, according to the Washington State Human Rights Commission, RCW 49.60 “makes discrimination unlawful on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed, sex, sexual orientation, disability, familial status, marital status, and age. Discrimination based on sexual orientation, including gender identity, will be illegal in employment, housing, public accommodations [including schools], credit and lending, and insurance. All employers with eight or more employees, except tribes and religious non-profit institutions, are covered by the law.” It is still perfectly legal in 36 states to discriminate in employment or at school against someone you perceive to be transgender. In thirty of those states it is still legal to discriminate against someone you think is gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.

2017, UK – Thousands of gay and bisexual men who were convicted of now-abolished sexual offenses in Britain have been posthumously pardoned under a new policing law, the Justice Ministry announces. The law, which received Royal Assent on this day, is named after British WWII codebreaker Alan Turing (23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954), who committed suicide following his conviction for gross indecency and was posthumously pardoned by Her Majesty the Queen in 2013. It also makes it possible for living convicted gay men to seek pardons for offenses no longer on the statute book.

Our Daily Elvis

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina Notes:

Most of the above is copied from one of the sites cited as sources in the daily post and as linked at the end of every post.

the history of nonheterosexuals and different historical eras views are such that there is a there is a danger to apply current decadish of time, in 2021 to past decades and centuries; particularly without application of complete history.

There is a difference between adopting male attire in the era when clothing was spelled out in law, and lesbians who passed in public, differ from those who only change clothing for personal sexual gratification, in private “cross dressors” in the language of this same era.

Laws regarding clothing exist in many nations, including capitol punishment, this is why sexual orientation is a demographic, That heterosexual women continue to be denied reproductive rights, education and professions, even where won at court; that women are a demographic. That male and female persons who are ethnically different from the majority population and with differing experiences being merged into colour blind visible minorities are differing demographics.

the farther back in time the given individual is, and why on this blog, there is a under theme of Elvis Presley, as the most prominent modern era person of the 1900s Current Era; who was photographed almost every day of his adult life., and who’s number of days on this planet have resulted in his being one of the most recognizable individuals across all cultures on the planet, which in 1950s was 1 billion people, and by his death almost 4 billion, to the 8 billion currently existing on earth.

The Oppressor Vs Oppressee

the heterosexual male right vs heterosexual male left problem

Angry Wizard22 hours ago

What about heterosexual male anarchists? 😜

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina:

that is another part of the problem when only heterosexual male especially white views are all that are discussed. the why am I not in charge without regard for others is the very problem

Angry Wizard22 hours ago

No one can morally be “in charge” of another human being regardless of color or sexual orientation.

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina

tell that to the other heterosexual males of all political and/or religious views

Angry Wizard

Sorry. I don’t represent them.  This kind of labelling and collectivism is unhealthy.  How about the content of someone’s character rather than the color of their skin or their sexuality?  Lumping all white heterosexual males under one label is as counterproductive as doing it to any other “group”.

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina

that is a nice idea but when it is white heterosexual men who are responsible for the oppression in Canada and the USA, the groupthink of self interest is overwhelming. it is time white hetero men regardless of their ideas learn what they have done to all the other demographics. so making oppression about white heteromen is part of the problem that other demographics experience when trying to communicate with an individual from that demographic

white heterosexual men are not the most picked on group, nor the best individual for every single job or entertainment role. and claiming victim status owing to individual lack of power is another part of toxic masculinity.

you individually cannot understand other demographics when you fail to grasp that and compete for the victimhood caused by your most generic demographic –

as for morality, that is one of the bigger myths humans invented along with the idea of legal rights.

Nina Triggerson.  LOL.

you demonstrate exactly why there is no difference between internet trolls and average white heterosexual men. already more words than you can read.

which proves all my points about white heterosexual men.

Ooh.  Tell me more about all of the problems in the world are because of white heterosexual men.  Hitler was a socialist eunuch.  You must love him.

  • lgbtq2 blogger nina

you really have no reason to wonder why white heterosexual men are the problem demographic when you gloat and brag about being the problem demographic.

  • godwin’s law. you really do not understand the internet.

Angry Wizard2 minutes ago

Yes.  The entire demographic is responsible for every evil in the world.  Tell me more!

Don’t quote the law to me.  I was there when it was written, you fascist racist sexist nutjob.

lgbtq2 blogger nina

heterosexual men of all ethnicities, globally through history – and you claim to be an adult yet interact like a child combative and name calling.

  • white heterosexual man calls someone names, on the internet, what a sad little troll you are that this is how you validate yourself. little better than a bot.

by using words incorrectly. you are a whiney white man who is name calling like a child because he cannot understand he does not get to play victim when white heterosexual men were never illegal nor marginalized anywhere

I’ve been a socially liberal political activist since 1988.  People like you ruin the fight for civil liberties.  The enemy is the government and their corporate cronies, not a particular group as you shout.

  • LGBTQ2 blogger nina

you are not liberal to blame an individuals in the demographics oppressed in law and socially by white heterosexual men

you are in fact as bad as the right wing that you presume to stand against on behalf of. which is beyond your grasp to consider your impact as one in the problem demographic.

Ok.  I’m done.  Left wing fascists are boring.

1948, India – Indian activist and leader Mahatma Gandhi (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948)  was assassinated in New Delhi, India, by a religious fanatic. Gandhi had ended British rule in India through nonviolent resistance. “Non-violence is not a garment to be put on and off at will. Its seat is in the heart, and it must be an inseparable part of our very being,” he stated in 1926. His teachings were used during many of the gay demonstrations of the 1960s and 1970s. Today, the LGBT non-denominational group Soulforce uses Gandhi’s non-violence practices in its demonstrations against churches which discriminate against LGBT people.

The plans announced last summer also included a vow to amend the Criminal Code and the Canadian Human Rights Act to more broadly prohibit the sharing of hate speech online.

Our Daily Elvis

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina Notes:

Most of the above is copied from one of the sites cited as sources in the daily post and as linked at the end of every post.

the history of nonheterosexuals and different historical eras views are such that there is a there is a danger to apply current decadish of time, in 2021 to past decades and centuries; particularly without application of complete history.

There is a difference between adopting male attire in the era when clothing was spelled out in law, and lesbians who passed in public, differ from those who only change clothing for personal sexual gratification, in private “cross dressors” in the language of this same era.

Laws regarding clothing exist in many nations, including capitol punishment, this is why sexual orientation is a demographic, That heterosexual women continue to be denied reproductive rights, education and professions, even where won at court; that women are a demographic. That male and female persons who are ethnically different from the majority population and with differing experiences being merged into colour blind visible minorities are differing demographics.

the farther back in time the given individual is, and why on this blog, there is a under theme of Elvis Presley, as the most prominent modern era person of the 1900s Current Era; who was photographed almost every day of his adult life., and who’s number of days on this planet have resulted in his being one of the most recognizable individuals across all cultures on the planet, which in 1950s was 1 billion people, and by his death almost 4 billion, to the 8 billion currently existing on earth.

Job Interviewing: Framing and Contextualizing Information

Nina's Soap Bubble Box

Conventional wisdom says you should never lie on your resumé or in a job interview, but sometimes it’s the only way you’ll be able to get the new job.    business.financialpost.com
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In the early 1990s, I was the “manager” of a print shop by title – by job function, I was head copy clerk and graphic designer – my one workplace I used a Macintosh instead of a PC.
We had a job ad out for another copy jockey and I had to read about 1,000 resumes for a minimum wage job.
I didn’t actually read them all, because I knew what we were looking for – so all professional people now desperate for even that, were removed from the pile.
Anyone who listed their religion or political activities were also removed, because this was a general public service job…

LGBTQ2 for January 29

BCE to The Suffragettes

1749, Denmark – Christian VII (29 January 1749 – 13 March 1808)isborn in Copenhagen. He was rejected by his father as being effeminate. When he became king at 16, the nobles plied him with sex mates to curry favor. He married to produce an heir, but his queen became the mistress of the court doctor who then took control of the government and assigned Christian a lover. The lover locked him in a room, Christian was freed by the nobles, the queen was divorced, and the doctor and the lover were drawn and quartered. 

1858 – Edward Irenaeus Prime-Stevenson (January 29, 1858 – July 23, 1942) is born. He was an American author who used the pseudonym of Xavier Mayne. In 1908, he published the first American defense of homosexuality entitled The Intersexes: A History of Similisexualism as a Problem in Social Life.

01-29-1927 – 04-06-2013   Don Shirley – Born in Pensacola, Florida. He was 

an American classical and jazz pianist, as well as a composer. Shirley recorded many albums for Cadence Record Company during the 1950s and 1960s, experimenting with jazz with a classical influence. His compositions included organ symphonies, piano and cello concertos, a one act opera, and string quartets. During the 1960s, Shirley went on tour, some venues were in Southern states. He hired New York-nightclub bouncer Tony “Lip” Vallelonga as his driver and bodyguard. Their story has been made into the 2018 film Green Book. The screenplay was written by Tony Vallelonga’s son, 

Nick, Peter Farrelly, and Brian Currie. Nick used letters written by his father and Shirley that were sent to “Lips” wife, Dolores. The scene in the film depicting Shirley being handcuffed to a YMCA shower by a cop that discovered him having sex with another man is factual. In the 1980s, Nick told Shirley and his father that he wanted to make a movie about their experiences together. Shirley told him to do it but to wait until after he was no longer around. “You should put in everything your father told you, and everything I told you,” Nick recalls Shirley telling him. “You tell exactly the truth, but you’re going to wait until I pass.” Nick believes that Shirley wanted him to wait because Shirley worried that telling the true story would out his sexuality. Shirley passed away from heart disease in April 2013, less that five months after “Lip” died.

fashion magazines, including four international editions of Vogue and multiple issues of Cosmopolitan between 1979 and 1982. Her first major shoot, published in October 1978, was with top fashion photographer Chris von Wangenheim, who had her pose nude behind a chain-link fence with makeup artist Sandy Linter. Gia became infatuated with Linter and pursued her, though the relationship never went anywhere. Gia also appeared in advertising campaigns for Armani, Christian Dior, Versace, and Yves Saint Laurent. She became addicted to 

heroin and later contracted HIV and died of AIDS-related complications. One of Carangi’s friends later spoke of her “tomboy persona” describing her relaxed openness about her sexuality as reminiscent of the character Cay in the 1985 film Desert Hearts. In 1998, Gia, a biographical television film starring Angelina Jolie, debuted on HBO. Jolie won a Golden Globe Award and a SAG Award for her performance. Thing of Beauty – The Tragedy of Supermodel Gia by Stephen Fried is well worth reading

She is an advocate for the transgender community. She has traveled over a million miles, to 28 different nations bringing her message of hope, understanding, and respect.

A Texas Court removed her name from her son’s birth certificate because she is transgender. Sometimes funny, sometimes factual, and always sincere, she answers all questions with honesty and candor. She is a Global Ambassador for the Kinsey Institute at the University of Indiana, a Stonewall School Role Model, a speaker for the National Health Service in England, and a collaborator with colleagues from the University of Oxford on a project to help further the understanding of transgender and gender non-conforming youth. Jessica Lynn holds dual citizenship in the UK and the USA.

LGBTQ2 for January 28

BCE to The Suffragettes

1833, UK – Charles George Gordon  (28 January 1833 – 26 January 1885) was born in Woolwich, England. A British military hero he became a martyr at Khartoumn. The American historian Byron Farwell in his 1985 book Eminent Victorian Soldiers strongly implied that Gordon was gay, for instance writing of Gordon’s “unwholesome” interest in the boys he took in to live with him at the Fort House and his fondness for the company of “handsome” young men. Always surrounded by boys and young men, he once told a friend he lacked the courage to act on his impulses because of his religious beliefs. He said he hoped to die in battle to prove his manhood. He got his wish. Gordon never married and is not known to have had a relationship with anyone of the opposite sex or of the same sex.

colette

01-28-1873 – 08-03-1954 Colette (Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette) – She was a French novelist nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1948. Her best known work is the novella Gigi (1944). In 1949, it was made into a French film, then in 1951 adapted for the stage with the then unknown Audrey Hepburn in the title role, picked by Colette personally. In 1958, the Hollywood musical starring Leslie Caron and Louis Jourdan, with a screenplay by Alan Jay Lerner won the Academy Award for Best Picture. Colette was also a mime, an actress, and a journalist. She was married several times and had a series of relationships with women, notably with Mathilde de Morny, Marquise de Belief (Missy), with whom she sometimes shared the stage. On January 3, 1907, an onstage kiss between Missy and Colette caused a near-riot, and as a result they were no longer able to live together openly, although their relationship continued for another five years. When Colette died, she became the first French woman to be given a state funeral.

1890 – Momma Rose was born Rose Thompson (August 31, 1890 – January 28, 1954). She was the mother of two famous performing daughters: burlesque artist Gypsy Rose Lee and actress and dancer June Havoc. She was  the inspiration for Rose, the lead character of the musical Gypsy. Rose was running a boarding house in New York, referred to by sources of the time as a “seedy boarding house for lesbians,” where she also lived. During this time, Gypsy paid a visit to the house and for some reason a young woman who has been described as Momma Rose’s lover at the time didn’t know Gypsy was her daughter. The woman mistakenly thought Gypsy was making a pass at Rose. Rose and the woman reportedly had a vicious fight and Momma Rose shot her.

01-28-1901 – 03-05-1989 Richmond Barthé – Born in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. He was an African-American LGBT pioneer, sculptor, and key figure in the Harlem Renaissance in the 1930s. Because he was a gay man who expressed his orientation in his work, he fell into 

richard-barthe

obscurity by the 1940s. Much of his art depicted African-American men in sensual poses, often nude. Today his work doesn’t seem that confrontational, but in a racist, sexually uptight America in the middle of the last century, it is remarkable that his work received the acclaim that it did. In 1935, his work was included in an exhibit of African-American art at the New York Museum of Modern Art. In 1975, he moved to Pasadena, California, and a year later curators at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art included his work. The attention to his work, the growing respect of a younger audience to artists of the Harlem Renaissance, and the support of his friends brought stability into his life. He lived out his later years as a treasured part of the art community.

t’s no wonder that actual lesbians are upset about this appropriation of womanhood, and undermining of same-sex attraction. Eva Kurilova, a lesbian feminist, complained to Reduxx that “in queer and woke spaces, lesbians are no longer allowed to describe ourselves as same-sex attracted, as this is not seen as inclusive. . . . Instead, we have to be open to biological males in our spaces, on our dating apps, and in our sex lives.”

“He is not and can never be a woman who wants and seeks intimacy with other women,” Kurilova said. Meanwhile, Andrew Sullivan, an early pioneer of gay rights, said of Stryker’s invitation: “This is where we are. The abolition of homosexuality as a core left tenet.”

01-26-1963 — 03-09-1995   Scott Amedure – Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was an American murder victim. On March 6, 1995, during a taping of The Jenny Jones Show (a television talk show), Amedure revealed that he was attracted to an acquaintance, Jonathan Schmitz (born July 18, 1970) who lived near him in Lake Orion, Michigan. Until the taping, Schmitz didn’t know who would be revealed as his secret admirer. During the segment,

 Amedure was encouraged by Jones to share his fantasies about Schmitz, after which Schmitz was brought onstage. In response to Amedure’s disclosure, Schmitz laughed, then stated that he was “definitely heterosexual.” Three days later, Schmitz confronted Amedure and shot him twice in the chest. At the murder trial, a friend of Amedure’s stated that Amedure and Schmitz went out drinking together after the taping and an alleged sexual encounter occurred. Three days later, Amedure left a “suggestive” note at Schmitz’s house.After finding the note, Schmitz withdrew money from a bank, purchased a shotgun, and then went to Amedure’s mobile home. He then asked Amedure if he was the one that left the note. According to court documents, Amedure responded with a smile. Schmitz then returned to his car, got his gun, and returned to Amedure’s trailer and killed him. After killing Amedure, Schmitz left the residence, telephoned 9-1-1, and confessed to the killing. At trial, defense attorneys argued that Schmitz, who had been diagnosed with manic depression and Graves’ disease, was caused to commit homicide by mental illness and humiliation, by way of the “gay panic defense.” Schmitz was found guilty of second degree murder in 1996 and sentenced to 25–50 years in prison, but his conviction was overturned on appeal. Upon retrial, he was found guilty of the same charge once again and his sentence was reinstated. Schmitz was released from prison on August 22, 2017, after being granted parole.

BCE to The Suffragettes

1800 – The Commonwealth of Virginia reduces the penalty for free peoples for committing buggery to 1–10 years in prison, but did not reduce the death penalty for slaves.

1874, France – W. Somerset Maugham I25 January 1874 – 16 December 1965) is born in Paris. He was a British playwrightnovelist and short story writer. He was among the most popular writers of his era and reputedly the highest-paid author during the 1930s. He was 21 when Oscar Wilde was put on trial. It was enough to make him “publicly straight.” He later said that his biggest mistake was “I tried to persuade myself that I was three-quarters normal and that only quarter of me was queer — whereas it was the other way around.” Maugham has been described as both bisexua and homosexual. In addition to his 13-year marriage to Sylvie Wellcome, he had affairs with other women in his youth. In later life Maugham was exclusively homosexual. Despite his wealth, his fame, and his secretary-companion Gerald Haxton (1892 – November 7, 1944), Maugham died a bitter man.

January 25, 1890

New York World reporter Nellie Bly completed an around-the-world journey in 72 days, six hours and 11 minutes, beating the fictional trip of Jules Verne’s Phileas Fogg which took 80 days.

1892 – Alice Mitchel (Nov. 26, 1872 – March 31, 1898), 19, kills Freda Ward (1873 – February 23, 1892), 17, by the docks in Memphis as a result of jealousy. The story made national headlines for months. The two girls had planned to marry but Alice was furious that Freda had admitted to romantic feelings for two men. Mitchell was subsequently found insane by means of a jury inquisition and placed in a psychiatric hospital until her death in 1898. The case, exploited by sensationalist press, and focused attention of the sexual attachments of women and drew out into the public discourse discussions of lesbianism. The case was headlined as “A Very Unnatural Crime” and influenced the popular literature of the era which began to depict lesbians as “murderous” and “masculine”. One identity that came to be was the “mannish lesbian,” creating dialogue of gender expression. The case history produced by Mitchell’s defense describes her as “a regular tomboy.” In the courtroom Alice Mitchell was presented as “insane” by her attorneys. This story was featured on Investigation Discovery‘s Deadly Women and is the subject of the book Alice + Freda Forever by Alexis Coe.

1892, UK – Lesbian writer Virgian Woolfe (25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941) is born in London. She is considered one of the foremost modernists of the 20th-century and a pioneer in the use of stream of consciousness as a narrative device.  The most celebrated of the Bloomsbury set, her writing is cerebral, and subtle. Woolfe’s greatest love was probably Vita Sackville-West (9 March 1892 – 2 June 1962), an English poet, novelist, and garden designer. The fruit of the affair is the novel Orlando, considered to be the most beautiful love poem in the English language.

Acting like Col Tom Parker, Brian Epstein signed a management deal with The Beatles. Epstein was to receive 25 per cent of the bands gross earnings, the normal management deal was 10 per cent. Epstein directs their image away from Teddy Boys in leather jackets to a smarter stage presentation, with matching suits and bows to the audience. Unlike Parker, Epstein never added his signature to the document. Epstein, who always had the interests of the group at heart, vowed not to sign the contract until he had obtained a record deal for the group.   Epstein of course did secure a recording contract through much perseverance, and on October 1, 1962, a new management contract was drawn up, and that one, Epstein signed along with the Beatles.

1965 – Winston Churchill (1874-1965) died.

Our Daily Elvis

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina Notes:

Most of the above is copied from one of the sites cited as sources in the daily post and as linked at the end of every post.

the history of nonheterosexuals and different historical eras views are such that there is a there is a danger to apply current decadish of time, in 2021 to past decades and centuries; particularly without application of complete history.

There is a difference between adopting male attire in the era when clothing was spelled out in law, and lesbians who passed in public, differ from those who only change clothing for personal sexual gratification, in private “cross dressors” in the language of this same era.

Laws regarding clothing exist in many nations, including capitol punishment, this is why sexual orientation is a demographic, That heterosexual women continue to be denied reproductive rights, education and professions, even where won at court; that women are a demographic. That male and female persons who are ethnically different from the majority population and with differing experiences being merged into colour blind visible minorities are differing demographics.

the farther back in time the given individual is, and why on this blog, there is a under theme of Elvis Presley, as the most prominent modern era person of the 1900s Current Era; who was photographed almost every day of his adult life., and who’s number of days on this planet have resulted in his being one of the most recognizable individuals across all cultures on the planet, which in 1950s was 1 billion people, and by his death almost 4 billion, to the 8 billion currently existing on earth.
