Her life partner was writer Gertrude Stein until Stein’s death in 1946. She was Stein’s confidante, lover, cook, secretary, muse, editor, critic, and general organizer. Toklas remained in the background, chiefly in the shadow of Stein, until Stein published her memoirs in 1933 under the teasing title The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas. It became Stein’s bestselling book.

most legendary lesbian couple. After moving to Paris, Stein met Alice B. Toklas in 1907. Alice called her “Pussy” and Gertrude was Lovey” to Alice. Their apartment on the Rue de Fleurus which became a famous meeting place for artists and writers. During the period Toklas and Stein were together, they frequently exchanged love letters. Alice was an early riser, and Gertrude, who wrote late into the night, left her tender, passionate notes to cheer up her mornings. “Baby precious Hubby worked and / loved his wifey, sweet sleepy wifey, / dear dainty wifey, baby precious sleep,” Stein once rhymed. Toklas gained wide attention with the publication of The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas (1933), which is actually Gertrude Stein’s memoirs. It records Toklas’s first-person observations of Stein’s life and her friends, among them Ernest Hemingway, Sherwood Anderson, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Georges Braque. The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook came out when Toklas was 77. It contained 300 recipes and became famous because of one special dish, Toklas’s Haschich Fudge (“which anyone could whip up on a rainy day,” as she wrote).

Alice B. Toklas

Toklas published her own literary memoir, a 1954 book that mixed reminiscences and recipes under the title The Alice B. Toklas Cookbook. The most famous recipe was called “Haschich Fudge,” a mixture of fruit, nuts, spices, and “cannibus sativa,” or marijuana. Her name was later lent to the range of cannabis concoctions called Alice B. Toklas brownies. When Stein died in 1946, she left most of her estate to Toklas, including their art collection. Stein’s relatives disputed her right to have or sell the art because their relationship was not legally recognized. The paintings were locked in a Paris bank vault at the insistence of the Steins. Toklas began writing to earn an income and published three books. In 1963, her own memoir, What Is Remembered, was published. Her later years were spent in financial difficulties and in poor health.

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

Our Daily Elvis

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 with Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual?

As if Geller, a Hollywood hairdress would have a problem and his challenge back to those accusers was were they admitting Elvis was bisexual with the accusation? the last Elvis secret, along with the suicide note left in 1977, all swore to not reveal.

And each Memphis Mafia Member book was all about the orgies and parties Elvis made them attend, as if that was not why they were his friends acquired over time, to Red West, who saved Elvis from high school bathroom beatings and haircuts.

With the new theatric Biopic that will reveal Elvis’ self harm in both diet and injuries as a pretense to get cancer level drugs from doctors and dentists and anyone who would administer anything, including an induced week long coma for weight loss in Vegas, known to any Elvis fan who read:

the Darkest Elvis Secret was said by his StepMom on National USA tv. That one can be famous and rich and be depressed, connects to why western nations have the highest suicide rates: direct/obvious and passive. In 2017 it was revealed Elvis Presley left a suicide note, and that was why the life insurance policy was never cashed.

Was There A Dark Side to Elvis and Gladys?

It is important to note that the majority of sexual predators and murderers are males who victimize: pick the most inclusive or the most diverse statement of victim categories:

A) women and other men

B) men and women

C) heterosexual men, heterosexual women and LGBTQ2

D) heterosexual men, heterosexual women, gay/bisexual men, bisexual women, lesbians and NB/Transpersons

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.

BCE to The Suffragettes

04-29-1863 – 04-29-1933 Constantine P. Cavafy – Born in Alexandria, Egypt. He was a Greek poet who lived in Alexandria, Egypt and worked as a journalist and civil servant. He published 154 poems; dozens more remained incomplete or in sketch form. His most important poetry was written after

Constantine P. Cavafy

 his fortieth birthday. Cavafy is widely considered one of the best modern Greek poets of the twentieth century. During his lifetime Cavafy was an obscure poet, living in relative seclusion and publishing little of his work. This lack of concern for publication was due, perhaps, to the highly personal nature of many poems. Cavafy, who was gay, wrote many sexually explicit poems. W. H. Auden noted as much in his introduction to the 1961 volume The Complete Poems of C. P. Cavafy when he wrote, “Cavafy was a homosexual, and his erotic poems make no attempt to conceal the fact.” Auden added: “As a witness, Cavafy is exceptionally honest. He neither bowdlerizes nor glamorizes nor giggles. The erotic world he depicts is one of casual pickups and short-lived affairs. At the same time, he refused to pretend that his memories of moments of sensual pleasure are unhappy or spoiled by feelings of guilt.”

1870, UK – Thomas Ernest Boulton (Feb. 2, 1848-Dec. 1904) and Frederick William Park (1849-?) were Stella and Fanny to their friends. They were drag queens who were arrested the night after a performance and charged “with conspiring and inciting persons to commit an unnatural offence”. They appear in court in women’s clothing. After the prosecution failed to establish that they had anal sex, which was then a crime, or that wearing women’s clothing was in any sense a crime, both men were acquitted.

04-29-1897 – 02-16-1944   Mainie (Mary Harriet) Jellett – Born in Dublin, Ireland. She had her first painting lessons when she was 11 and attended classes given by Elizabeth Yeats, daughter of the artist J.B. Yeats and sister of the poet W.B. Yeats. She studied for three years under William Orpen at the Dublin Metropolitan Art School and in January 1917 went to London to study with Walter Sickert at the Westminster Art School. It was there that Jellett met Evie Hone. They became spiritual and emotional partners. In 1921, she and Jellett moved to Paris. At the end of the year, they returned to Dublin and for the next 10 years, they spent part of the year in Paris. The artists had a joint exhibition in 1924. The women worked closely together for the next two decades. Both their works were shown at the 1928 Olympic Games. In 1923, Jellett exhibited two cubist paintings at the Dublin Painters’ Exhibition, including her painting titled Decoration. Her paintings were derided by the press at the time. Decoration now holds a place of honor in the National Gallery of Ireland. Carolyn Gage (b. 01-01-1952) wrote a play about the meeting and their relationship, entitled Female Nude Seated

 Toy identified as being gay during his speech at an anti-Vietnam-War rally in Kennedy Square, Detroit, in April 1970. At the rally Toy was representing the Detroit Gay Liberation Movement, of which he was a founding member. In 1971 Bishop Richard Emrich of the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan appointed Jim a founding member of the Diocesan Commission on Homosexuality. The group published a Report & Recommendations of the Commission on Homosexuality (1973), one of the earliest church documents in this country to support the concerns of gay and lesbian people. His archives are housed in the James Toy Collection at the University of Michigan’s Bentley Historical Library. He was a founding member of the Ann Arbor Gay Liberation Front. In 1971 he helped establish the Human Sexuality Office (HSO) at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor (later renamed The Spectrum Center). The HSO was the first staff office in a United States institution of higher learning, and presumably the first of its kind in the world, to respond to sexual-orientation concerns. Jim served as its Co-Coordinator, and Gay Male advocate, from 1971 until 1994 when Dr. Ronni Sanlo became the director of that center. In 2010, a LGBT research group in Ann Arbor has its center named after him.

compositions. McKuen was instrumental in bringing the Belgian songwriter, Jacques Brel, to prominence. He translated Brel’s work into English, which led to the song, If You Go Away. McKuen’s songs sold over 100 million recording worldwide, and 60 million books of his poetry sold as well. McKuen refused to identify as gay, straight, or bisexual. He was active in the LGBT rights movement, and as early as the 1950s, was a key member of the San Francisco chapter of the Mattachine Society. He often gave benefit performances to help LGBT rights organizations and to fund AIDS research. McKuen lived in Beverly Hills, California with his partner Edward and four cats. He died of respiratory arrest in 2015.

His “new age” songs made him a celebrity in the late 60s. He told an interviewer “I have had sex with men. Does that make me gay?”

Our Daily Elvis

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 with Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual?

As if Geller, a Hollywood hairdress would have a problem and his challenge back to those accusers was were they admitting Elvis was bisexual with the accusation? the last Elvis secret, along with the suicide note left in 1977, all swore to not reveal.

And each Memphis Mafia Member book was all about the orgies and parties Elvis made them attend, as if that was not why they were his friends acquired over time, to Red West, who saved Elvis from high school bathroom beatings and haircuts.

LGBTQ2 Her/History for April 28

BCE to The Suffragettes

04-28-1926 – 02-19-2016 (Nelle) Harper Lee – Born in Monroeville, Alabama. She is the author of the 1960 novel To Kill a Mockingbird, which became a best seller and won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize. Her book was made into an Academy Award film in 1962, staring Gregory Peck. Lee was known to be a tomboy and is depicted as such in the film as Scout. It has

harper-lee

 long been rumored that she was gay but it has never been affirmed. Journalist Marja Mills of the Chicago Tribune was sent to interview Lee and her sister Alice in 2001. Mills described Nelle Harper Lee as inquisitive, spontaneous, easy to laugh, and moody. Mills revealed that Lee is a rabid sports fan who watches baseball, golf, and football. Why didn’t Lee marry? Mills lets Lee’s close friend Tom Butts, a Methodist minister, answer this question: “Scout was a tomboy, and so was she, and she kind of kept that almost masculine way about her 

as an adult…I don’t think I’ve ever seen her wear a piece of jewelry as long as I’ve known her except something simple for appearance. She doesn’t wear makeup, hardly. You know how she dresses. Always pants and kind of baggy clothes sometime.” Mills never asked Lee if she was gay because she was afraid that Lee would stop talking to her. Lee was also friends, since childhood, with Truman Capote (he was also depicted in the film as the charcter Dill). Maybe we’ll never know for sure if Harper Lee was a lesbian, but now that she has passed maybe the truth will come out.

1929 –  Gay journalist John Paul Hudson (April 28, 1929 – February 20, 2002) is born.  Hudson is one of the first gay writers to take up gay rights and become involved in the media. He wrote also under the pseudonym John Francis Hunter. He wrote for the periodical Gay in 1969, the Advocate in 1970 and contributed to David, Gaysweek, News West, Flash and Vector. A tireless activist, he is credited with being one of the founders of the gay rights movement that grew out of the Stonewall riots and was one of the principal organizers of the Christopher Street Liberation Day (CSLD) committee, which put together the first GLBT Pride March in 1970 on the first anniversary of Stonewall. He died in 2002.

LGBTQ2 her/history for April 27

04-27-1759 – 09-10-1797 Mary Wollstonecraft – Born in Spitalfields, United Kingdom. She was an English writer, philosopher, and advocate for women’s rights. She is best 

Mary Wollstonecraft

known for A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), in which she argues that women are not naturally inferior to men, but appear to be only because they lack education. She suggests that both men and women should be treated as rational beings and imagines a social order founded on reason. She also wrote Mary, A Fiction, which is the earliest example of a novel about a lesbian relationship written by a woman. It is the story of a woman who marries a man she does not love and with whom she does not have sex. When he leaves on an extended voyage, her girlfriend Ann moves in. “Mary” may be based on the author’s close and passionate relationship with a woman named Fanny Blood. Wollstonecraft was bisexual and married. Her daughter, also named Mary, married poet Percy Shelley and wrote Frankenstein.

1911 – Jack Cole (April 27, 1911– February 17, 1974) was an American dancerchoreographer, and theatre director known as the founder of the idiom of American show dancing called Theatrical Jazz Dance.If not for Cole, many now-immortal stage and screen actresses probably would not be remembered as dancers today. Cole’s choreography in the “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend” sequence in the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes was reinterpreted by Madonna for her music video of “Material Girl”.

04-27-1917 – 11-15-2002 Mary Meigs – Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was an American painter and writer. She studied at Bryn Mawr College, graduating in 1939, and later

In August 1983, in Washington, D.C., she urged the amendment of the Civil Rights Act to include gays and lesbians as a Protected Class. On April 1, 1998, at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, Mrs. King called on the civil rights community to join in the struggle against homophobia and anti-gay bias. “Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and the forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity, and personhood”, she stated. “This sets the stage for further repression and violence that spreads all too easily to victimize the next minority group.” Coretta Scott King’s support of LGBT rights was strongly criticized by some black pastors. She called her critics “misinformed” and said that Martin Luther King’s message to the world was one of equality and inclusion.

04-27-1937 – 03-02-1992 Sandy Dennis – Born in Hastings, Nebraska. She was an American stage and film actress. In the 1960s she won two Tony Awards, as well as an Oscar for her performance in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. She was also

Dennis has been identified as a lesbian by a number of Hollywood historians. According to Dennis’ biographers, Peter Shelley and Eric Roberts, upon being asked if Dennis was bisexual, they spoke of her telling them about her many lesbian relationships and said that she, “appreciated the beauty of women. But Sandy also liked and appreciated what a very, very young man could do to a woman”.

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 with Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual?

As if Geller, a Hollywood hairdress would have a problem and his challenge back to those accusers was were they admitting Elvis was bisexual with the accusation? the last Elvis secret, along with the suicide note left in 1977, all swore to not reveal.

And each Memphis Mafia Member book was all about the orgies and parties Elvis made them attend, as if that was not why they were his friends acquired over time, to Red West, who saved Elvis from high school bathroom beatings and haircuts.

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 his/herstory April 26

BCE to The Suffragettes

04-26-1564 (baptized) – 04-23-1616 William Shakespeare – Born in Stratford-upon-Avon, United Kingdom. English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s pre-eminent dramatist. 

William Shakespeare

His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. The sexuality of Shakespeare has been the subject of recurring debate. It is known from public records that he married Anne Hathaway and they had three children. Scholars have also speculated that he was bisexual, based on an analysis of the sonnets, many of which, including Sonnet 18 “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day”, are love poems addressed to a man, the “Fair Lord,” and which contain play on words relating to sexual desire between men.

He is often called England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon”. The debate rages as to whether or not he was gay. It will likely never be resolved. The word drag is a stage direction coined by Shakespeare and his contemporaries meaning ‘Dressed Resembling A Girl’.

04-26-1886 – 12-22-1939 “Ma” Rainey (born Gertrude Pridgett) – Born in Columbus, Georgia. She was one of the earliest known American professional blues singers and one of the first blues singers to record. She was billed as The Mother of the Blues.  

Ma Rainey

Rainey was in trouble with the police several times for her lesbian behavior. In 1925, she was arrested for taking part in an orgy at her home involving women in the chorus. Bessie Smith bailed her out of jail. Her album Prove it on Me Blues, a monologue about women who love women, showed Rainey in a hat, tie, and jacket talking to some flappers with a policeman behind her. The copy reads “What’s all this? Scandal? “ Take a look at the words, the song goes: “Went out last night a crowd of my friends. They must’ve been women, cause I don’t like no men… They say I do it, ain’t nobody caught me, They sure got to prove it to me…”

The political activist and scholar Angela Y. Davis noted that “‘Prove It on Me’ is a cultural precursor to the lesbian cultural movement of the 1970s, which began to crystallize around the performance and recording of lesbian-affirming songs.”

04-26-1892 – 06-19-1955  Adrienne Monnier – Born in Paris, France. She was a French bookseller, writer, and publisher, and an influential figure in the modernist writing 

Adrienne Monnier

scene in Paris in the 1920s and 1930s. In 1915 when she opened her bookshop called “La Maison des Amis des Livres”, Monnier was one of the first women in France to found her own bookstore. Monnier offered advice and encouragement to Sylvia Beach when Beach founded an English language bookstore called Shakespeare and Company in 1919. She was lovers with Sylvia Beach for 36 years.

1895, UK – Author Oscar Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) is prosecuted in Regina v. Wilde. Wilde pleads not guilty to charges of sodomy and gross indecency. On the stand, he says of homosexuality, “It is beautiful. It is fine. It is the noblest of affection. There is nothing unnatural about it.”

The Friends of Dorothy Era and The Hayes Code

1944 – Violette Morris (18 April 1893 – 26 April 1944) is killed. She was a French athlete who won two gold and one silver medals at the Women’s World Games in 1921–1922. In 1936, she became a spy for Nazi Germany, which continued during World War II. She was killed in 1944 in a Resistance-led ambush as a traitor to France. Morris had been banned from the 1928 Olympics for her lesbianism.

The Genderfuck Apathetics vs Yuppies : Aids the new STD on the list

1980:

 CBS broadcasts an hour-long documentary entitled “Gay Power, Gay Politics” that alleges to be about the emergence of gay political clout in San Francisco, but instead focuses obsessively on more lascivious aspects of gay sexuality, making them seem like the focus of the entire gay rights movement. In one segment, close-ups track the arrival of drag queens at the city’s Beaux Arts Ball while voice-over narration compares modern-day San Francisco to the decadence of 1930s Berlin.  The program outrages the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, which sends an angry letter of protest to CBS. Later, reacting to a complaint from the National Gay Task Force, the National News Council rules that CBS did indeed unfairly “exaggerate political concessions to gays and make those concessions appear as threats to public morals and decency…. Justification cannot be found for the degree of attention given to sadomasochism or the treatment of the Beaux Arts Ball and the Halloween sequences.” The network is also faulted for doctoring the show’s soundtrack in such a way as to bolster its conclusions.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_Power,_Gay_Politics

LGBTQ2 history/herstory April 25

BCE to The Suffragettes

1284, UK – King Edward II  (25 April 1284 – 21 September 1327) is born in Caernavon, Wales. Also called Edward of Caernarfon, he was King of England from 1307 until he was deposed in January 1327. In 1308, he married Isabella of France, the daughter of the powerful King Philip IV, as part of a long-running effort to resolve tensions between the English and French crowns. Edward had a close and controversial relationship with Piers Gaveston, who had joined his household in 1300. The precise nature of Edward and Gaveston’s relationship is uncertain; they may have been lovers or friends. The contemporary evidence supporting their homosexual relationship comes primarily from an anonymous chronicler in the 1320s who described how Edward “felt such love” for Galveston that “he entered into a covenant of constancy, and bound himself with him before all other mortals with a bond of indissoluble love, firmly drawn up and fastened with a knot.” The first specific suggestion that Edward engaged in sex with men was recorded in 1334, when Adam Orieton, the Bishop of Winchester, was accused of having stated in 1326 that Edward was a “sodomite”. The Meaux Chronicle from the 1390s simply notes that Edward gave himself “too much to the vice of sodomy”.

Edward II of England

He was King of England from 1307 until he was deposed in January 1327.Ancient Christianity had tolerated homosexuality but by the mid 13th century life was harder on gays and Edward was made an example. His first lover, Piers Gaveston (c. 1284 – 19 June 1312),was murdered by courtiers. His second affair, with Hugh le Despenser (c. 1286 – 24 November 1326), ended with the Baron’s arrest and imprisonment. Le Despenser had his genitals cut off and burned in front of him and then was beheaded. Edward was murdered by having a red-hot poker inserted in his anus.  

04-25-1886 — 02-06-1959   Cora (Concordia) Antarova – Born in Warsaw, Poland (called Russian 

Poland at the time of her birth). She was a Russian contralto who starred in the Bolshoi Theater for more than twenty years. After she retired, she wrote theosophical novels. Because she went to Theosophical Society meetings, Antarova was under constant surveillance. Stalin admired her voice, so she was never arrested. She was in a relationship with Olga Tsuberbiller, the Russian mathematician, until her death in 1959. Tsuberbiller died in 1975 and is buried next to Antarova in the Novodevichy Cemetery.

04-25-1895 – 01-09-1980 Raymond Mortimer – Born in Knightsbridge, London, United Kingdom. He is a British writer, critic, and literary editor. 

Raymond Mortimer

During WWII he worked at the BBC and was in liaison with the Free French Forces led by Charles de Gaulle. He had a long term relationship with diplomat Harold Nicolson, husband of Vita Sackville-West.

1918, South Africa – Graham Payn (25 April 1918 – 4 November 2005) is born. He was a South AfricanEnglish actor and singer, also known for being the life partner of the playwright Noël Coward(16 December 1899 – 26 March 1973). Beginning as a boy soprano, Payn later made a career as a singer and actor in the works of Coward and others. Coward continually promoted Payn’s career. Payn received good notices for his performances but lacked the drive and star quality. Coward also eventually came to realize it, writing: “He is, I fear, a born drifter. I know his theatrical career has been a failure but there are other ploys to go after. I love him dearly and for ever, but this lack of drive in any direction is a bad augury for the future. I am willing and happy to look after him for the rest of my life, but he must do something.” After Coward died in 1973, Payn’s career for the rest of his life became the administration of the Coward estate. Barry Day, an authority on Noel Coward, wrote of Payn, “ It was not a job he ever wanted or expected but he brought to it a dedication and focus that Noel would have been surprised and pleased to see. (Photo is of Graham Payn with Mary Martin) After Coward’s death, Payn ran the Coward estate for 22 years.

2018 – Soni Wolf (1949-April 25th, 2018)of the Dykes on Bikes dies at the age of 69 from complications due to pneumonia and pulmonary disease. Soniwas a native of Rhode Island. She served as a medic in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War, treating veterans in a Texas hospital. After she was discharged, she moved to the San Francisco Bay area in the 1970s. She lived in the Castro district and worked managing copy centers for brokerages and law firms. Wolf came to the fore when she first rode with a group of lesbians during the 1976 San Francisco’s Pride Parade. To avoid overheating their bikes, they rode in front of the parade. During the parade, someone coined the term ‘dykes on bikes’ and it stuck when The San Francisco Chronicle used it. Wolf said of the name, “It rhymes. Just kind of rolls off the tongue.” One of San Francisco’s greatest queer legends, Soni Wolf not only founded Dykes on Bikes, but also took on the U.S. Supreme Court twice in a battle over the right to trademark the group’s name. Wolf is survived by Dykes on Bikes around the world.

1st performance of Joseph Haydn’s oratorio “Die Jahreszeiten” (The Seasons)

1858, UK – Dame Ethel Smyth (24 April 1858 – 8 May 1944) is born in Surrey, England. A composer, writer, and feminist, Smyth wrote seven torrid volumes of explicit memoir. In 1910, she met Emmaline Pankhurst, the founder of the British women’s suffrage movement and head of the militant and extremely well-organized Women’s Social and Political Union. Struck by Mrs. Pankhurst’s mesmerizing public speeches, Smyth pledged to give up music for two years and devote herself to the cause of votes for women. Smyth had several passionate affairs in her life, most of them with women. Smyth’s relationship with acclaimed British harpsichordist and clavichordistViolet Gordon-Woodhouse  (23 April 1872 – 9 January 1948) is depicted satirically in Roger Scruton‘s 2005 opera, Violet.

04-24-1942 Barbra Streisand – Born in Brooklyn, New 

York. She is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and filmmaker. Streisand has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights. In her ‘love letter’ to the LGBT community in Billboard, June 2o17, she said, “The first time I ever sang for a paying audience was at a gay club, The Lion, in Greenwich Village. I was 18 years old and had never been in a nightclub before. The gay community supported me from the start, and I will always be grateful. Marriage equality is the law and that deserves a toast… to all of us, because we’re all unique and beautiful in our own way and entitled to love and be loved by whomever we choose.” In 2007, she helped raise funds in an unsuccessful attempt to defeat Proposition 8 in California. Jason Gould, her son, came out to her and his father, Elliot Gould, in 1988.

In 1986, in Amsterdam, she and poet Audre Lorde participated in a public discussion. When asked how important is it that black women who love other women call themselves “black lesbians”, she answered, “I do not call myself ‘lesbian’ and I do not want to be called ‘lesbian’ either. Life is too complex for us to give names not derived from us, dirty, conditioned words, to the deepest feelings within me. If I love a woman, I love that one woman, and one swallow does not make a summer.”

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.

Our Daily Elvis

– the April 24 duplicates April 25 and I did not correct that error/omission

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 with Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual?

As if Geller, a Hollywood hairdress would have a problem and his challenge back to those accusers was were they admitting Elvis was bisexual with the accusation? the last Elvis secret, along with the suicide note left in 1977, all swore to not reveal.

And each Memphis Mafia Member book was all about the orgies and parties Elvis made them attend, as if that was not why they were his friends acquired over time, to Red West, who saved Elvis from high school bathroom beatings and haircuts.

Poet/playwright William Shakespeare died at the age of 52. (Hamlet, Macbeth, Othello, King Lear, Much Ado About Nothing, Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night, As You Like It, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, The Comedy of Errors, Richard III, All’s Well That Ends Well)

1791 – James Buchanan (April 23, 1791 – June 1, 1868) is born near Mercerburg, Pennsylvania. The 15th president of the United States was the only bachelor to serve in that office. His closest friend long-time live-in companion, Alabama Senator William Rufus De Vane King (April 7, 1786 – April 18, 1853)  briefly served as vice president under Franklin Pierce. King referred to the relationship as a “communion”, and the two attended social functions together. Contemporaries also noted the closeness. Andrew Jackson called King “Miss Nancy” and prominent Democrat Aaron V. Brown referred to King as Buchanan’s “better half”, “wife” and “Aunt Fancy” (the last being a 19th-century euphemism for an effeminate man). Around Washington, the pair were known as the “Siamese twins,” slang at the time for gays and lesbians.

04-23-1858 – 05-08-1944 Ethel Smyth – Born in Sidcup, United Kingdom. She was an English composer and a leader of the women’s suffrage movement. Her compositions included songs, works for piano, chamber music, orchestral and concertante works, choral works, and operas.

Ethel Smyth

From 1913 onwards, she began to gradually lose her hearing and managed to complete only four more major works before deafness brought her composing career to an end. However, she found a new interest in literature and, between 1919 and 1940, she published ten highly successful, mostly autobiographical, books. In recognition of her work as a composer and writer, Smyth was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1922. Smyth had several passionate affairs in her life, most of them with women. Her philosopher-friend and librettist of some of her operas, Henry Bennet Brewster, may have been her only male lover. Smyth was at one time in love with the married suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst. At the age of 71 she fell in love with writer Virginia Woolf, who, both blamed and amused, said it was “like being caught by a giant crab,” but the two became friends. Smyth’s relationship with Violet Gordon-Woodhouse is depicted satirically in Roger Scruton’s 2005 opera, Violet.

04-23-1875 – 12-06-1954 Élisabeth de Gramont (Duchess of Clermont-Tonnerre) – Born in Nancy, France. She was a French writer. Best known for her long term relationship with Natalie Barney. She was a descendant of Henry IV of France and grew up among the highest aristocracy when she was a child.

Elisabeth de Gramont

She looked back on the lost of wealth and privilege with little regret, and became known as the “red duchess” for her support of socialism. She was a close friend, and sometimes critic, of writer Marcel Proust, whom she had met on June 9, 1903. Her mother died giving birth to her, and her father remarried the wealthy Marguerite de Rothschild. Élisabeth met Natalie Barney in the spring of 1909. They became lovers on May 1, 1910, a date that became their anniversary. Although neither was faithful to the other sexually, they were devoted to one another for their entire lives.

04-23-1876 – 1968 Mary Ellicott Arnold – Born in New Brighton, New York City, New York. She was an American social activist, teacher, and writer, best known for In the Land of the Grasshopper Song co-written with Mabel Reed.

Mary Ellicott Arnold

 From the time they were both sixteen, Arnold and Reed had a friendship, that later matured into a life partnership. Arnold’s papers and correspondence are housed at Friends Historical Library, Swarthmore College and the Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. In 2003, playwright Lauren Wilson adapted In the Land of the Grasshopper Song for the stage as a musical comedy.

04-23-1895 – 08-31-1983 Alice DeLamar – Born in New York City, New York. She was a Colorado mine heiress and one of America’s youngest and richest heiresses.

DeLamar was Eva Le Gallienne’s lover and financial supporter of the Civic Repertory Theatre in New York, founded by Le Gallienne. DeLamar was her patron for sixty years and left her a million dollars in 1982. She was also a patron of art, ballet and theater. DeLamar died on August 31, 1983. On September 3, she was creamated but she had made no arrangement for what was to happen to her ashes. Finally, her black chauffeur, Charles Edwards, carried her urn to the Royal Palm Memorial Gardens in Palm Beach, because his girlfriend was working there in the funeral home, so DeLamar’s ashes are buried in an all-black cemetery. Edwards said of DeLamar, “She knew people, she knew their limits, but she did not look at their shortcomings but only to the good in each of them.” Many of her servants had been with her for years and she did not forget them at the end.

Clemmons was one of the first African Americans to have a recurring role on a kids’ TV series, and his relationship with Mr. Rogers was ground breaking in race relations. While in college, Clemmons realized he was gay, but remained closeted, fearing disapproval from his religious family and the community. In 1968, Rogers told Clemmons that his sexuality didn’t matter to him personally, but that Clemmons couldn’t be “out” and continue appearing on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, because of the scandal it would cause. In the 2018 documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Clemmons talks about working with Rogers and what it was like to have to stay in the closet. Currently, Clemmons lives and works in Middlebury, Vermont, where he is the Emeritus Artist in Residence of Middlebury College.

France legalizes gay marriage. The first wedding took place in Montpellier on May 28, 2013. Vincent Autin and Bruno Boileau became the first same-sex couple to marry. In his wedding speech, Autin referred to Martin Luther King, Jr. “The law may not be able to make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me.” Boileau added: “After the hatred, it’s time to talk of love.”

USA: A measure that would remove the ban on gay marriages in the state passed the Nevada State Senate. If passed by the Assembly and both houses again in 2015, the repeal would then be put to the voters in 2016. Recent polls show 54% of Nevadans favor repealing the marriage ban.

Our Daily Elvis

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 with Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual?

As if Geller, a Hollywood hairdress would have a problem and his challenge back to those accusers was were they admitting Elvis was bisexual with the accusation? the last Elvis secret, along with the suicide note left in 1977, all swore to not reveal.

And each Memphis Mafia Member book was all about the orgies and parties Elvis made them attend, as if that was not why they were his friends acquired over time, to Red West, who saved Elvis from high school bathroom beatings and haircuts.

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.

1766, France – Anne Louise Germaine de Staël-Holstein, known as Madame De Stael (22 April 1766 – 14 July 1817), is born near Paris. She was a French woman of letters of Swiss origin whose lifetime overlapped with the events of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic era. For many years she lived as an exile under the Reign of Terror and under Napoleonic persecution. Known as a witty and brilliant conversationalist, often dressed in flashy and revealing outfits, she participated actively in the political and intellectual life of her times. She was an active bisexual who lived for 19 years with  Parisian socialite Juliette Recamier (4 December 1777 – 11 May 1849), the most celebrated beauty of her time. Upon Recamier’s death, De Stael wrote “I love you with a love that surpasses that of friendship…were I to embrace you with all that remains of me.”  Celebrated for her conversational eloquence, she participated actively in the political and intellectual life of her times. Her works, both critical and fictional, made their mark on the history of European Romanticism.

04-22-1894 – 03-13-1955   Eva (Evie) Sydney Hone – Born in Roebuck Grove, County Dublin, Ireland. Shortly before her twelfth birthday, she suffered from polio (infant paralysis).

She was educated by a governess, continuing her education in Switzerland, and went on tours to Spain and Italy before moving to London in 1913. She studied at the Byam Shaw School of Art and the Central School of Arts and Crafts. In 1917, Hone met Mainie Jellett (b. 04-29-1897) when both were studying at the Westminster Technical Institute. They became spiritual and emotional partners. In 1921, she and Jellett moved to Paris. At the end of the year, they returned to Dublin and for the next 10 years, they spent part of the year in Paris. The artists had a joint exhibition in 1924. Carolyn Gage (b. 01-01-1952) wrote a play about the meeting and their relationship, entitled Female Nude Seated. Hone is considered to be an early pioneer of cubism, although her best-known works are stained glass. Her most notable pieces are the East Window in the Chapel at Eton College, which depicts the Crucifixion, and My Four Green Fields, which is now in the Government Buildings in Dublin.

04-21-1891 – 08-21-1974   Georgia Harkness – Born in Harkness, 

New York , a town named after her grandfather. She was a Christian theologian in the Methodist tradition. Harkness was the first woman to obtain full professorship in a U.S. theological seminary. She disliked the doctrine of original sin, saying that “the sooner it disappears, the better it is for theology.” In 1948, Harkness confronted Karl Barth on his theology of female subordination. She ended the debate quoting  Galatians 3:28,” …nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” In 1956, for her work on behalf of the ordination of women in the Methodist Church, she was honored with a standing ovation when an affirmative vote permitted women full ordination rights. Harkness was committed to alleviating racism, economic disparities, sexism, and believed that same sex relationships would be accepted in the future. In 2010 the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at Pacific School of Religion named an annual lectureship after her, in recognition of her advocacy of full civil rights for gay and lesbian people and honoring her thirty-three year relationship with her companion, Verna Miller.

During the 1920’s and 1930s Tennant had a sexual affair with the poet Siegfried Sassoon. The affair lasted for four years and remained Tennant’s most important relationship. The character of Cedric Hampton in the novel Love in a Cold Climate by Nancy Mitford is based on Tennant. Lord Sebastian Flyte, a character in the novel Brideshead Revisited, is partly based on Tennant. He died in 1987 and had outlived most of his contemporaries. A large archive of his letter, scrapbooks, and artworks is held in The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Natural History in London.

Wainberg was also an outspoken advocate for people with HIV and for destigmatizing those living with the disease. He had a close relationship with the gay community and understood how the disease disproportionately affected gay men. As a Modern Orthodox Jew, Wainberg’s research of HIV led him into supporting the LGBTQ community and he marched in pride parades to show his support. His son, Zev Wainberg said, “It was a way for my father to fight intolerance that was consistent with his Judaic values.” Dr. Mark Wainberg drowned in the waters off Bal Harbour, Florida at the age of 71.

1946 – John Maynard Keynes, 1st Baron Keynes(5 June 1883 – 21 April 1946) died on this day. He was a British economist whose ideas fundamentally changed the theory and practice of macroeconomics and the economic policies of governments. He built on and greatly refined earlier work on the causes of business cycles, and was one of the most influential economists of the 20th century and the founder of modern macroeconomics theory. His ideas are the basis for the school of thoughtknown as Keynesian economics, and its various offshoots.Keynes’s early romantic and sexual relationships were exclusively with men. Significant among his early partners was British classics scholar and code breaker Alfred Dillwyn “Dilly” Knox (23 July 1884 – 27 February 1943).

John Cameron Mitchell

friends and in 1992, he came out publicly in a New York Times profile. He is a Radical Faerie, which was influential in his making of Shortbus. The long-running New York City monthly party, “Mattachine”, was founded by Mitchell, PJ DeBoy, Paul Dawson, and performance artists, Amber Martin and Angela De Carlo.

1966: 

The NY Mattachine Society, spearheaded by president Dick Leitsch  (born May 11, 1935), staged a “Sip-In” at the Julius Bar in Greenwich Village. This led to court actions that overturned the New York State Liquor Authority’s provisions declaring it illegal for homosexuals to congregate and be served alcoholic beverages in bars. Although Leitsch’s complaint to the State Liquor Authority resulted in no action, the city’s human rights commission declared that such discrimination could not continue. The National Park Service Register of Historic Places for the Julius’ Bar states that “Scholars of gay history consider the sip-in at Julius’ as a key event leading to the growth of legitimate gay bars and the development of the bar as the central social space for urban gay men and lesbians.” The bar now holds a monthly party called “Mattachine” honoring the early gay rights pioneers.

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.

Our Daily Elvis

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 with Larry having to point out that were they admitting Elvis was bisexual?

As if Geller, a Hollywood hairdress would have a problem and his challenge back to those accusers was were they admitting Elvis was bisexual with the accusation? the last Elvis secret, along with the suicide note left in 1977, all swore to not reveal.

And each Memphis Mafia Member book was all about the orgies and parties Elvis made them attend, as if that was not why they were his friends acquired over time, to Red West, who saved Elvis from high school bathroom beatings and haircuts.

However:

With the new theatric Biopic that will reveal Elvis’ self harm in both diet and injuries as a pretense to get cancer level drugs from doctors and dentists and anyone who would administer anything, including an induced week long coma for weight loss in Vegas, known to any Elvis fan who read:

the Darkest Elvis Secret was said by his StepMom on National USA tv. That one can be famous and rich and be depressed, connects to why western nations have the highest suicide rates: direct/obvious and passive. In 2017 it was revealed Elvis Presley left a suicide note, and that was why the life insurance policy was never cashed.

Was There A Dark Side to Elvis and Gladys?

It is important to note that the majority of sexual predators and murderers are males who victimize: pick the most inclusive or the most diverse statement of victim categories:

A) women and other men

B) men and women

C) heterosexual men, heterosexual women and LGBTQ2

D) heterosexual men, heterosexual women, gay/bisexual men, bisexual women, lesbians and NB/Transpersons

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.
