LGBTQ2 June 10

BCE to The Suffragettes

356 BC, Babylon near Al-Ḥillah, Iraq – Alexander III of Macedon (July 21, 356 BC-June 13, 323 BC), commonly known as Alexander the Great, 36, dies in the palace of Nebuchadnezzar II, in Babylon. He  overthrew the Persian empire, carried Macedonian arms to India, and laid the foundations for the Hellenistic world of territorial kingdoms. Already in his lifetime the subject of fabulous stories, he later became the hero of a full-scale legend bearing only the sketchiest resemblance to his historical career. Alexander became legendary as a classical hero in the mold of Achilles, and he features prominently in the history and mythic traditions of both Greek and non-Greek cultures. He became the measure against which military leaders compared themselves, and military academies throughout the world still teach his tactics.[6][c] He is often ranked among the most influential people in human history. Alexander earned the epithet “the Great” due to his unparalleled success as a military commander. He never lost a battle, despite typically being outnumbered. Alexander’s sexuality has been the subject of speculation and controversy. However, there is some evidence that Alexander may have been bisexual, which in his time was not controversial.

1566, Switzerland – Bartholome Tecia (1550-June 10, 1566), 15, is convicted of sodomy and drowned in the Rhone River. On 10 June 2013, at the initiative of Network, a Swiss non-governmental organization, a commemorative plaque was unveiled on the banks of the Rhone at the site of Bartholome’s murder. It reads:  “In 1566, as Bartholomé was led to his death, no one stood, as we stand today, to decry the State-sanctioned killing of a child on suspicion of homosexuality,” said Marcia V.J. Kran of the UN Human Rights Office. “No one was prepared, as we are today, to challenge homophobic prejudice, to insist on the equal worth and equal rights of every person, irrespective of their sexual orientation and gender identity. It would be beautiful to think that out of this one sad, lonely death in the Rhone, more than four centuries ago, might come some good; that passers-by who see this plaque will pause and reflect on the folly of homophobia; and that we can all draw from Bartholomé’s story the strength to continue our modern day struggle to achieve equality for LGBT people everywhere.”


Richard Wagner’s “Tristan and Isolde” premiered in Munich, Germany.

06-10-1895 – 10-26-1952 Hattie McDaniel – Born in Wichita, Kansas. She was an African-American radio, stage and film actress, singer-songwriter and comedian. Her most famous role was that of Mammy in Gone With the Wind (1939), for which she won the Academy Award to Best Supporting Actress, the first Academy Award won by an African American entertainer. She was also the first black woman to sing on the radio in the United States. Although she received screen credit for 80 films, she appeared in over 300. McDaniel’s had five short term marriages. She was discreetly bisexual. One of her lovers was Tullulah Bankhead. When McDaniel’s and other African-Americans moved into the West Adams Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, white residents filed a lawsuit against her and the others, because the deeds included a clause forbidding sale to ‘non-Caucasians.’ McDaniel’s organized her black neighbors and they fought back.

The suit got to court in 1945 and the judge ruled in favor of McDaniel and the rest of the defendants based on the 14th amendment. As a result, she retained her longtime home at 2203 S. Harvard Blvd. until her death from breast cancer in 1952. Preserving Historic LGBT Sites in California says, “The house still stands and most of the grounds are preserved. The site is one of the most significant in California for the intersectional histories of Hollywood, bisexuality, African-Americans, women and civil rights organizing.”

06-10-1899 – 11-10-1928 Anita Berber – Born in Leipzig, Germany. 


She was a German dancer, actress, and writer. At the age of sixteen, she moved to Berlin and became a cabaret dancer. By 1918 she was working in film. In 1919, she began to dance in the nude. Because of her androgynous looks, she quickly became famous. It was her public appearances that were considered scandalous because of her overt use of drugs and her bisexuality. Berber was addicted to cocaine, opium, and morphine and was a heavy drinker as well. In 1919, she married a man for convenience and later left him for a woman named Susi Wanowski. She became a part of the Berlin lesbian scene. Her second marriage was in 1922 and lasted until 1923. Then in 1925, she married Henri Chatin-Hofmann, a gay American dancer. She died in 1928 from a severe case of tuberculosis.

06-10-1922 – 06-22-1969 Judy Garland – Born in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. She was an American singer, actress, and vaudevillian.

Her career spanned more than forty years as an actress, recording artist and on concert stages. Her portrayal as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (1939), still remains a classic. Her album, Live at Carnegie Hall (April 23, 1961), has been called “the greatest night in show business history.” She was married to Vincente Minnelli, a gay man from 1945 to 1951. Garland is one of the biggest gay icons. The LGBT community admired her as a performer and her personal struggles seemed to mirror those of the gay community. It has also been suggested that the rainbow flag may have been inspired in part by Garland’s Over the Rainbow. From the beginning of her Hollywood career, she liked to visit gay bars with openly gay friends Roger Edens and George Cukor. In the 1960s, a reporter asked her how she felt about having a large gay following. She replied, “I couldn’t care less. I sing to people.” She died from an accidental overdose of barbiturates. Her funeral, held in New York City, on June 27, 1969, was one day before the Stonewall riots.

Time magazine wrote decades later: “The uprising was inspired by a potent cocktail of pent-up rage (raids of gay bars were brutal and routine), overwrought emotions (hours earlier, thousands had wept at the funeral of Judy Garland) and drugs.” Garland’s daughter Lorna Luft points to the connection with pride, saying that her mother was a “huge, huge advocate of human rights” and that Garland would have found the rioting appropriate.

1929 – Fannie Mae Clackum (June 10, 1929 – August 16, 2014) was the first person to successfully challenge her discharge on the grounds of homosexuality from the U.S military. Fannie Mae Clackum served as a US Air Force Reservist in the late 1940s and early 1950s. When the Air Force suspected her and Grace Garner of being lesbians, it arranged for a four-person overnight trip and motel stay. The U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations used those events as the basis of a series of interrogations in April 1951 when the pair were accused of being lesbians. They refused to accept the dishonorable discharges the Air Force offered them and demanded a court-martial. They were demoted from corporal to private, discharged in early 1952 and lived together in Marietta, Georgia. They spent eight years fighting their discharges in the US Court of Claims claiming denial of due process when denied courts-martial and discharged administratively. They prevailed in 1960 when the court invalidated the discharges and awarded them their back military pay for the remainder of their enlistment periods. The court, after recounting the Air Force’s account of its investigation, said: “One’s reaction to the foregoing narrative is ‘What’s going on here?’”[4] The court found it “unthinkable” that the Air Force would burden them with undesirable discharges “without respect for even the most elementary notions of due process of law”. Theirs is the earliest known case of the successful appeal of a discharge from the U.S. Armed Forces on grounds of homosexuality, though the case turned on due process claims, not homosexuality as the basis for their exclusion from military service. Lillian Faderman states that Clackum’s victory “suggests that in somewhat saner times [1961] an objective court could understand how outrageous the military’s tactics were.”

Post 9/11 – The Shock Decade From “gay and lesbian” to “lesbigay” to “Lgbt/Lgbtq/Lgbtq2”


Canada – The Ontario Court of Appeals strikes down Canada’s ban on same-sex marriage.  The Ontario Court of Appeals strikes down Canada’s ban on same-sex marriage, ruling that denying marriage licenses to same-sex couples violates Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, part of the Canadian Constitution. This makes Ontario the first place in North America to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Two other Canadian provinces, British Columbia and Quebec, follow suit in July, 2003 and March, 2004. Similarly, Massachusetts will become the first U.S. State to marry lesbian and gay couples when its Supreme Judicial Court rules on November 18, 2003 that, beginning May 17, 2004 Massachusetts must begin treating same-sex couples equally.

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.

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.
