She had also written about her struggles growing up gay in Northern Ireland. On April 18, 2019, McKee was shot during rioting in the Creggan Area of Derry, Northern Ireland. Violence had broken out after police raids on dissidents with the aim of seizing munitions ahead of the Easter Rising (also known as the Easter Rebellion) parades that were to take place in the area that weekend. McKee was standing near an armored police Land Rover when a gunman fired up to twelve shots towards the police. She was hit in the head and died later at the area hospital. The leaders of Northern Ireland’s main political parties released a joint statement condemning the killing of McKee and described it as “an attack on all the people of this community, an attack on

 the peace and democratic processes.“ McKee was in a domestic partnership with Sara Canning, a nurse. After her death it was revealed that she had been planning to propose marriage to Canning, and had purchased an engagement ring. Her funeral was attended by then Prime Minister Theresa May, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, and Irish President Michale D. Higgins. Father Martin Magill received a standing ovation when he asked why it took her death to unite politicians. Days later the British and Irish governments announced a new talks process aimed at restoring Ireland’s political institutions. That has now happened after three years of deadlock. On February 11, 2020, four men were arrested under the Terrorism Act in Derry.

And given Larry Geller’s descriptions of being accused by other Memphis Mafia members of being gay with Elvis during the private hair cut sessions -rather makes it seem the Memphis Mafia were jealous, and Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual?

In Brussels in July 1873 in a drunken, jealous rage, he fired two shots with a pistol at Rimbaud, wounding his left wrist, though not seriously injuring the poet. Verlaine was arrested and imprisoned at Mons, where he converted to Roman Catholicism, which influenced his work and provoked Rimbaud’s sharp criticism. His poetry was admired and recognized as ground-breaking, and served as a source of inspiration to composers such as Gabriel Fauré and Claude Debussy. Belgian-British composer Poldowski (daughter of Henryk Wieniawski) set 21 of Verlaine’s poems to music.

03-28-1921 – 05-08-1999   Sir Dirk Bogarde – Born in West Hampstead, London, England. He was an English actor and writer. His films include The Servant (1963), Darling (1965), The Damned (1969), Death in Venice (1971), The Night Porter (1974), and A Bridge Too Far (1977). His life partner was Anthony Forwood. Though they lived together, Bogarde always said that their relationship was platonic. Such denials were understandable at the time, mainly because male homosexual acts were criminal during most of his career, and could lead to prosecution and imprisonment. The actor John Fraser said, “ Dirk’s life with Forwood had been so respectable, their love for each other so profound and so enduring, it would have been a glorious day for  the pursuit of understanding and the promotion of tolerance if he had screwed up the courage…(and came out).” In 1992, Bogarde was knighted. Forwood died of liver cancer on May 18, 1988. Bogarde  died of a heart attack at the age of 78 on May 8, 1999. 

1929 – Lesbian Katharine Lee Bates (August 12, 1859 – March 28, 1929), author of the song America the Beautiful, dies. Bates was a full professor of English literature at Wellesley College. She lived in Wellesley with Katharine Coman who was a history and political economy teacher and founder of the Wellesley College School Economics department. The pair lived together for twenty-five years until Coman’s death in 1915. In 2012, Bates was named by Equality Forum as one of their 31 Icons of the 2015 LGBT History Month

1931 – Writer Jane Rule (28 March 1931 – 27 November 2007) is born in New Jersey. In 1956, Rule moved to Canada. Her 1975 work “Lesbian Images” set down what it meant for her to be a lesbian and compared her experiences with other famous women. It was hailed as a landmark and helped earn her an Order of British Columbia medal. In 1964, Rule published Desert of the Heart, after 22 rejections from publishers. The novel featured two women who fall in love with each other and caused Rule to receive a flood of letters from “very unhappy, even desperate” women who felt they were alone and would be miserable. Rule’s novel was later made into a movie by Donna Deitch, released as Desert Hearts (1985). The Globe and Mail said, “the film is one of the first and most highly regarded works in which a lesbian relationship is depicted favourably.” She taught at Concord Academy in Massachusetts where she met Helen Sonthoff (September 11, 1916 – January 3, 2000) and fell in love with her. Rule and Sonthoff lived together until Sonthoff’s death in 2000. Rule surprised some in the gay community by declaring herself against gay marriage, writing, “To be forced back into the heterosexual cage of coupledom is not a step forward but a step back into state-imposed definitions of relationship. With all that we have learned, we should be helping our heterosexual brothers and sisters out of their state-defined prisons, not volunteering to join them there.” The ashes of Jane Vance Rule were interred in the Galiano Island Cemetery next to those of her beloved Helen Hubbard Wolfe Sonthoff.

In an interview to promote her new album,Love Somebody, McEntire spoke to PrideSource’s Chris Azzopardi. She has pledged full support for same-sex marriage, noting that LGBT rights “are very important” to her for many reasons. The singer recalled attending her first same-sex wedding early in the year (2015). The singers newlywed pals Michael and Steven had been together of 20 years before tying the knot, and she said, “I thought that it was not fair, and I didn’t understand why they couldn’t get married. It wasn’t because they just wanted to get married. If one of them had gotten injured and one to the hospital, the other one couldn’t make decisions for them. It’s very upsetting. It’s not only for convenience or for romantic reason – it’s for practicality.” She also said, “You gotta love people for who they are, accept them, and then go on with life.” McEntire, who has been embraced by gay country fans for some time, has previously spoken out in defense of LGBT rights.

The U.S. Congress ordered that all Indians east of the Mississippi were to be removed to Louisiana.

1859, UK – A. E. Houseman (26 March 1859 – 30 April 1936) was born in Worcestershire, England. He was an English classical scholar and poet, best known to the general public for his cycle of poems A Shropshire Lad. Lyrical and almost epigrammatic in form, the poems wistfully evoke the dooms and disappointments of youth in the English countryside. Their beauty, simplicity and distinctive imagery appealed strongly to late Victorian and Edwardian taste, and to many early 20th-century English composers both before and after the First World War. Through their song-settings, the poems became closely associated with that era, and with Shropshire itself. Housman was one of the foremost classicists of his age and has been ranked as one of the greatest scholars who ever lived.  His homosexuality and his love for Moses Jackson often appeared in his poetry.  

1911 – Thomas Lanier “Tennessee” Williams III (March 26, 1911 – February 25, 1983) was an American playwright. Along with Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller he is considered among the three foremost playwrights in 20th-century American drama. After some early attempts at relationships with women, by the late 1930s Williams had finally accepted his homosexuality. In New York City he joined a gay social circle which included fellow writer and close friend Donald Windham (1920–2010) and his then partner Fred Melton. In the summer of 1940 Williams initiated an affair with Kip Kiernan (1918–1944), a young Canadian dancer he met in Provincetown, Massachusetts. When Kiernan left him to marry a woman he was distraught, and Kiernan’s death four years later at 26 delivered another heavy blow. On February 25, 1983, Williams was found dead in his suite at the Hotel Elyséein New York at age 71

To Each Decade it’s Age of Understanding, do not under consider differing geographies, nor the heterosexual clash of cultures – in particular – do not read backwards the words of humans now to earlier ages, to each own expression in culture and under legal conditions; and to all biology applies, regardless of what humans think is understood, rather than told, the why and when.

Sex the act of; is central to religion, war – who gets to what to who- vs which has had a no.

Both in personal lives, in public and the workplaces, which were gender divided owing to sexual roles, across cultures and times.

where I note, The Last Elvis Secret given what the Memphis Mafia wrote about Presley Parties, the only thing not officially and rarely luridly written about was the balance of probability Elvis Presley was bisexual, and was described by heterosexual men as being so attractive as to raise a question – including Jerry Reed, writer and performer. And given Larry Geller’s descriptions of being accused by other Memphis Mafia members of being gay with Elvis during the private hair cut sessions -rather makes it seem the Memphis Mafia were jealous, and Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual? As if Geller, a Hollywood hairdress would have a problem.

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.

Timeline of LGBT history in Canada – Wikipedia

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina Notes:

To Each Decade it’s Age of Understanding, do not under consider differing geographies, nor the heterosexual clash of cultures – in particular – do not read backwards the words of humans now to earlier ages, to each own expression in culture and under legal conditions; and to all biology applies, regardless of what humans think is understood, rather than told, the why and when.

Sex the act of; is central to religion, war – who gets to what to who- vs which has had a no.

Understood as noting to be debated, quibbled nor negotiated.

Both in personal lives, in public and the workplaces, which were gender divided owing to sexual roles, across cultures and times.

music and movie information from my previous blog

where I note, The Last Elvis Secret given what the Memphis Mafia wrote about Presley Parties, the only thing not officially and rarely luridly written about was the balance of probability Elvis Presley was bisexual, and was described by heterosexual men as being so attractive as to raise a question – including Jerry Reed, writer and performer. And given Larry Geller’s descriptions of being accused by other Memphis Mafia members of being gay with Elvis during the private hair cut sessions -rather makes it seem the Memphis Mafia were jealous, and Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual? As if Geller, a Hollywood hairdress would have a problem.

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.

LGBTQ2 for March 23

BCE to The Suffragettes

1555, Italy – Pope Julius III (10 September 1487 – 23 March 1555) dies. He ruled from 1550 to 1555. Famous as “a skilled expert in canon law” and a patron of the arts, Julius also “created one of the most notorious homosexual scandals in the history of the papacy.” While still Cardinal Giovanni Maria del Monte, the pontiff fell in love with a 15-year old named Innocenzo. Two years later del Monte, now Pope, made Innocenzo a cardinal and his “chief diplomatic and political agent.” 

1743

Handel’s “Messiah” was performed in London for the first time at the Covent Garden theatre. It was presented under the name “New Sacred Oratorio” until 1749.

1792

In London, Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 94 in G Major (the “Surprise Symphony”) was performed publicly for the first time.

1874, Germany – J. C. Leyendecker (March23,1974 – July 25,1951) is born. He was one of the preeminent American illustrators of the early 20th century. He is best known for his poster, book and advertising illustrations, the trade character known as The Arrow Collar Man, and his numerous covers for The Saturday Evening Post. Between 1896 and 1950, Leyendecker painted more than 400 magazine covers. During the Golden Age of American Illustration, for The Saturday Evening Post alone, J. C. Leyendecker produced 322 covers, as well as many advertisement illustrations for its interior pages. No other artist, until the arrival of Norman Rockwell two decades later, was so solidly identified with one publication. Leyendecker “virtually invented the whole idea of modern magazine design. Leyendecker never married, and lived with Charles Beach  (1886 – 1952)for much of his adult life. Beach is assumed to have been his lover and who was the original model of the famous Arrow Collar Man.

1903, Morocco – A letter from Frances Hodgkin(28 April 1869 – 13 May 1947) to Dorothy Kate Richmond (12 September 1861 – 16 April 1935) begging her to join her in Morocco was written on this day. The two New Zealand painters were travel partners and lived together in Wellington. Hodgkins was a painter chiefly of landscape and still life, and for a short period was a designer of textiles. She was born in New Zealand, but spent most of her working life in Britain. She is considered one of New Zealand’s most prestigious and influential painters, although it is the work from her life in Europe, rather than her home country, on which her reputation rests. Richmond was a New Zealandpainternoted for her watercolour paintings of natural plants and animals and panoramic landscapes.

03-23-1905 (year is disputed – no birth certificate exists) – 05-10-1977 Joan Crawford (born Lucille Fay LeSueur) – Born in San Antonio, Texas. She was an American film and television actress. In 1999, the American Film  Institute ranked Crawford tenth on their list of the greatest female stars of Classic Hollywood Cinema.

She was married four times. Well known for her feud with Betty Davis, Joan Crawford was allegedly a lesbian and had affairs with several women. Neither woman ever admitted they were enemies. But in 1979, Bette Davis finally revealed the truth about their feud and the fact that she still hated Joan, even though it had been years since she died. Joan had made sexual advances to Bette who had rejected her and in order to take revenge, Joan married the man Bette loved, actor Franchot Tone. Crawford named several female stars that had an affair with her, including Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Barbara Stanwyck, and later Marilyn Monroe. Also, The LA Times published conversations from transcripts of Marilyn Monroe’s therapy which said that she had an affair with Joan.

LGBTQ2 Blogger Notes. It was the peak of the end of the Hollywood Era: Crawford died and Christina Crawford published a book and the movie deal, tv appearances. The adopted daughter expected to do better than Joan. The movie had differing impact on the various leads. Davis’s Daughter said I am not waiting and published while Bette lived. So no movie deal for that book.

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina suggests it was deeper than any feud over a man, but that Davis had a daughter, while Joan adopted children.

me supporter of the LGBT community. In 2019, she was interviewed by GLAAD and stated, “If it weren’t for the children (her gay fan base), I would not be here. They’re the most faithful audience I have. People who are tripping about something that someone else is doing it’s because they have a problem. Be your damn self. Just be yourself. Can I get an ‘Amen’?” She also stated that performing in gay clubs got her through some rough spots.

LGBTQ2 for March 22

BCE to The Suffragettes

1822, France – Rosa Bonheur (22 March 1822 – 25 May 1899) was born in Bordeaux, France. She was a French artist, an animalière (painter of animals) and sculptor, known for her artistic realism. Her most well-known paintings are Ploughing in the Nivernais, first exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1848, and now at Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and The Horse Fair (in French: Le marché aux chevaux), which was exhibited at the Salon of 1853 (finished in 1855) and is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Artin New York City. Bonheur was widely considered to be the most famous female painter during the nineteenth century.In her romantic life, she was fairly openly a lesbian; she lived with her first partner, Nathalie Micas  (1824 – June 24, 1889)for over 40 years until Micas’ death, and later began a relationship with the American painter Anna Elizabeth Klumpke(October 28, 1856 – February 9, 1942). At a time when lesbian sex was regarded as animalistic and deranged by most French officials, Bonheur’s outspokenness about her personal life was groundbreaking. Bonheur was buried together with Nathalie Micas at Père Lachaise Cemetery, Paris, and later Klumpke joined them.

1930 – Stephen Sondheim (born March 22, 1930) is born. He is an American composer and lyricist known for more than a half-century of contributions to musical theater. Sondheim has received an Academy Award, eight Tony Awards (more than any other composer, including a Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre), eight Grammy Awards, a Pulitzer Prize, a Laurence Olivier Award, and a 2015 Presidential Medal of Freedom. He has been described by Frank Rich of The New York Times as “now the greatest and perhaps best-known artist in the American musical theater.” Sondheim is in a relationship with Jeff Romley (born 1978), and lived with dramatist Peter Jones for eight years (until 1999).

100 Most Eligible Bachelors (2013). Diaz is known for his movie roles in Half Baked (1998), 200 Cigarettes (1999), and Stonewall (1995). He currently stars in the ABC drama Scandal as Huck. Diaz is openly gay, but told Out magazine that the fact he grew up in a rough neighborhood made it necessary to hide his orientation. “That facade of being somebody I’m really not just to protect myself definitely helped with acting.”

1972 – The Equal Rights Amendment, banning discrimination on the basis of sex, passes the U.S. Senate. Opponents of the amendment claim it will destroy the nuclear family, give broad civil rights to homosexuals, and even mandate unisex rest rooms in public.  Though by the end of 1972 twenty-two of the required thirty-eight states had ratified it, the ERA failed to receive the requisite number of ratifications before the final deadline mandated by Congress of June 30, 1982 expired, and so it was never adopted.

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina Notes: it was curious that Doonesbury’s Andy Lipencott dying of AIDS did not result in the negative reaction that either this FBOFW plotline – which was far more negative than when the Cathy cartoon had characters speaking of politics.

2004 – In Oregon, the commissioners of Benton County decided not to start issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. This reversal of an earlier vote was due to receiving a letter from state attorney general Hardy Myers on the matter.

2008

Mariah Carey reached #1 with “Touch My Body”, her 18th #1 song. That tied Elvis Presley’s record for the most #1 songs by a solo artist in the Rock Era. It was Carey’s 79th week at #1, just short of Elvis’s all-time record there.  (Note:  websites which claim that Carey has the most #1’s among solo performers are forgetting Elvis’s double-sided #1, in fact the biggest double-sided hit of the Rock Era–“Don’t Be Cruel”/”Hound Dog”.  Both “Don’t Be Cruel” and “Hound Dog” reached #1.)

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina Notes:

To Each Decade it’s Age of Understanding, do not under consider differing geographies, nor the heterosexual clash of cultures – in particular – do not read backwards the words of humans now to earlier ages, to each own expression in culture and under legal conditions; and to all biology applies, regardless of what humans think is understood, rather than told, the why and when.

Sex the act of; is central to religion, war – who gets to what to who- vs which has had a no.

Understood as noting to be debated, quibbled nor negotiated.

Both in personal lives, in public and the workplaces, which were gender divided owing to sexual roles, across cultures and times.

music and movie information from my previous blog

where I note, The Last Elvis Secret given what the Memphis Mafia wrote about Presley Parties, the only thing not officially and rarely luridly written about was the balance of probability Elvis Presley was bisexual, and was described by heterosexual men as being so attractive as to raise a question – including Jerry Reed, writer and performer. And given Larry Geller’s descriptions of being accused by other Memphis Mafia members of being gay with Elvis during the private hair cut sessions -rather makes it seem the Memphis Mafia were jealous, and Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual? As if Geller, a Hollywood hairdress would have a problem.

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.
