BCE to The Suffragettes

05-03-1877 — 04-25-1933   Baron Franz Nopcsa – Born in Szacsal, Transylvania (at the time part of Austria-Hungary). He was a Hungarian 

aristocrat, adventurer, scholar, geologist, and paleontologist. Nopcsa was also a specialist on Albanian studies and completed the first geological map of northern Albania. He made no effort to hide the fact that he was gay and was ofter dismissed as “whacky” by other scientists, even though he made significant contributions to the fields of paleontology, geology, and evolutionary biology. On November 20, 1906, Nopcsa met eighteen-year-old Bajazid Elmaz Doda and hired him as his secretary. Nopcsa recounted in his memoir: “He has been the only person who has truly loved me and in whom I had full confidence, never doubting for a moment that he would misuse my trust.” Nopcsa’s lost his estate and other possessions in 1920 as a consequence of WWI, when Austria-Hungary was defeated.

  To cover his debts, he sold his fossil collection to the Natural History Museum in London. In the late 1920s, he became ill and depressed. He fatally shot his lover, Doda, and then shot himself in 1933. He stated in his suicide note that he had a nervous breakdown and described the reason for killing his lover: “The reason that I shot my longtime friend and secretary, Mr. Bajazid Elmas Doda, in his sleep without his suspecting at all is that I did not wish to leave him behind sick, in misery and without a penny, because he would have suffered too much.”   Nopcsa’s memoir based on diaries and notes from 1897-1917, was first published in German in 2001 and later translated to English in 2014 as Traveler, Scholar, Political Adventurer: A Transylvanian Baron at the Birth of Albanian Independence.

05-03-1912 – 07-16-1995 May Sarton (pen name of Eleanor Marie Sarton) – Born in Wondelgem, Belgium. She was an American poet, novelist, and memoirist. She is known to have had an affair with writer Elizabeth Bowen. In 1945, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, she met Judy Matlack, who became her partner for the next thirteen years. They separated in 1956. Honey In The Hive (1988) is about their relationship. In her memoir At Seventy, Sarton reflected on Judy’s importance in her life and how her Unitarian Universalist upbringing shaped her. When publishing her novel Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaid Singing in 1965, she feared that writing openly about lesbianism would lead to a diminution of the previously established value of her work. “The fear of homosexuality is so great that it took courage to write Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaids Singing,” she said. She wrote in Journal of Solitude, “that to write a novel about a woman homosexual who is not a sex maniac, a drunkard, a drug-taker, or in any way repulsive, to portray a homosexual who is neither pitiable or disgusting, without sentimentality…” After the book’s release, many of Sarton’s works began to be studied in university-level Women’s Studies classes, being embraced by feminists and lesbians alike. Her works tackle many deeply human issues of love, loneliness, aging, nature, self-doubt, etc., common to both men and women.

After the book’s release, many of Sarton’s works began to be studied in Women’s Studies classes. She died of breast cancer on July 16, 1995.

Upon returning to New York after military service and increasingly concerned over (as one obituary called it at the time) her “lack of male physical development” Jorgensen heard about sex reassignment surgery and began taking the female hormone ethinyl estradiol on her own. She researched the subject with the help of Dr. Joseph Angelo, a husband of one of Jorgensen’s friends. Jorgensen had intended to go to Sweden, where at the time the only doctors in the world performing this surgery were located. During a stopover in Copenhagen to visit relatives, however, she met Dr. Christian Hamburger, a Danish endocrinologist and specialist in rehabilitative hormonal therapy. Jorgensen stayed in Denmark, and under Dr. Hamburger’s direction, was allowed to begin hormone replacement therapy. She then got special permission from the Danish Minister of Justice to undergo the series of operations for sex re-assignment. Jorgensen chose the name Christine in honor of Dr. Hamburger. She became the most famous and outspoken figure for transsexual and transgender community.

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.

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.

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:

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

05-02-1858 – 10-08-1949   Edith Somerville – Born in Corfu, where her father was stationed. She grew up in Drishane, Castletownsend, Ireland. In 1886, Somerville met her second cousin, Violet Martin. As Somerville recalled in Irish Memories (1917), the meeting “proved the hinge of my life, the place where my fate, and hers, turned over…” The two women became life and literary partners. The collaboration was highly successful. Together they published a series of fourteen stories and novels. Violet Martin died on December 21, 1915. Somerville believed that communication with her continued through automatic writing and her later publications were published under both names. Although Somerville never spoke of her relationship with Ross as lesbian, her memoirs indicate that their relationship was passionate and primary. Somerville was also an illustrator. She was also active in the suffragist movement and was later in life a close friend of lesbian composer Ethel Smyth. Somerville died in 1949 and is buried alongside Violet Martin at Saint Barrahane’s Church, Castletownsend, Ireland. A considerable archival legacy remains at Castletownsend and in Trinity College Library.

05-02-1895 – 11-22-1943 Lorenz Hart – Born in Harlem, New York City, New York. He was an American lyricist, half of the Broadway team of Rogers and Hart.

Some of his more famous lyrics include “Blue Moon,” “Mountain Greenery,” “The Lady Is a Tramp,” “Manhattan,” “Where or When,” “Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered,” “Falling in Love with Love,” “Have You Met Miss Jones?,” “My Funny Valentine,” “I Could Write a Book“, “This Can’t Be Love“, “With a Song in My Heart“, “It Never Entered My Mind“, and “Isn’t It Romantic?. 

Coming from an upper-middle-class Jewish American background, he was tortured by his diminutive stature (he stood just under 5 feet tall) and being gay, which he could neither deny nor accept. Too insecure to pursue social equals, Hart limited his sexual attentions to chorus boys and male prostitutes.

Hart suffered from alcoholism and sometimes disappeared for weeks at a time on alcoholic binges. He suffered from depression throughout his life. Devastated by the death of his mother seven months earlier, Hart died in New York City of pneumonia from exposure on November 22, 1943, after drinking heavily. (photo of Richard Rogers & Lorenz Hart – Time Magazine, September 26, 1938) No one knew until a biography came out 30 years after his death. 

Richard Rogers wrote the perfect scores for Hart’s words: his more famous lyrics include “Blue Moon,” “Mountain Greenery,” “The Lady Is a Tramp,” “Manhattan,” “Where or When,” “Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered,” “Falling in Love with Love,” “Have You Met Miss Jones?,” “My Funny Valentine,” “I Could Write a Book“, “This Can’t Be Love“, “With a Song in My Heart“, “It Never Entered My Mind“, and “Isn’t It Romantic?

As Hampton explained, “I like to eat.” In 1932, Hampton met Lillian Foster. The two remained a couple until Foster’s death in 1978. In addition to her financial contributions to gay and lesbian organizations, Hampton marched in the first National Gay and Lesbian March on Washington, and she appeared in the films Silent Pioneers and Before Stonewall. In 1984, Hampton spoke before thousands at the New York City Lesbian and Gay Pride Parade. She said, “I, Mabel Hampton, have been a lesbian all my life, for 82 years, and I am proud of myself and my people. I would like all my people to be free in this country and all over the world, my gay people and my black people.” Throughout her career and adult life in New York, Hampton collected memorabilia, letters, and other records documenting her history, providing a window into the lives of black women and lesbians during the Harlem Renaissance. The daughter, Joan Nestle, was from one of the families that Hampton worked for, founded the Lesbian Herstory Archives in New York City.

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.

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 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.

1974 – Studio One disco opens in West Hollywood, CA.  Started in an old World War II-era bomb-sight manufacturing building, Studio One has a long history that played a big part in the lives, politics and gay rights movement. Don Kilhefner wrote: For most gay men living outside West Hollywood, it represented bigotry, racism and sexism. Scott Forbes, its owner, wanted to limit the number of gay men of color and women. His doormen used every racist excuse possible to keep black gay men out, requiring two or three pieces of photo ID from African Americans and none or one piece from white men. To limit the number of women, excuses were made up on the spot based on what they were wearing, like no open-toe shoes. Rather than being a beacon of pride, countless gay community protests were held there. For most conscious gay and lesbian people of that period, Studio One stood for racist discrimination and white male privilege.
