Bisexual, his male lovers included soldiers, actors and a priest. a soldier was said to have kicked him to death after sex, though more likely Caligula was assassinated as a result of a conspiracy by officers of the Praetorian Guardsenators, and courtiers. During his brief reign, Caligula worked to increase the unconstrained personal power of the emperor as opposed to countervailing powers within the principate. He directed much of his attention to ambitious construction projects and luxurious dwellings for himself, and initiated the construction of two aqueducts in Rome: the Aqua Claudia and the Anio Novus. During his reign, the empire annexed the Kingdom of Mauretania as a province.

It becomes the birthplace of The Radical Faeries. The Radical Faeries is a loosely affiliated worldwide network and counter-cultural movement seeking to redefine queer consciousness through spirituality. Sometimes deemed a form of contemporary Paganism, it adopts elements from anarchism and environmentalism. Today Radical Faeries embody a wide range of genderssexual orientations, and identities. All sanctuaries and most gatherings are open to all, though a decreasing minority of gatherings still focus on the particular spiritual experience of man-loving men co-creating temporary autonomous zones.Faerie sanctuaries adapt rural living and environmentally sustainable concepts to modern technologies as part of creative expression. Radical Faerie communities are generally inspired by indigenousnative or traditional spiritualties, especially those that incorporate genderqueer sensibilities.

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.

Their relationship endured and they remained partners for the rest of their lives, a fact made all the more extraordinary by the hysteria about homosexuality generated by the Oscar Wilde(16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) trial of 1895. An early advocate of sexual freedoms, Carpenter had an influence on both D. H. Lawrence(11 September 1885 – 2 March 1930)and Sri Aurobindo(15 August 1872 – 5 December 1950), and inspired E. M. Forster‘s(1 January 1879 – 7 June 1970)novel Maurice.

08-29-1857 – 08-29-1928 Mary Garrett Hay – Born in Charlestown, Indiana. She was a suffragist, community organizer, and president of the Women’s City Club of New York and the Woman Suffrage Party. At a suffrage group meeting, she met Carrie Chapman Catt. They lived together for a while in the summer of 1895. When Catt’s husband died in 1905, she moved in with Catt permanently. Hay took over the household responsibilities. Both women worked tirelessly to get the Nineteenth Amendment passed, giving voter’s rights to women. In 1899, she and Catt traveled through 20 different states, made numerous speeches and attended 15 conventions. In 1920, Hay and Catt cast ballots for the first time for president. In 1928, Hay died of a heart attack. Catt created a monument to Hay where she was buried, Woodlawn Cemetery. When Catt died in 1947. she was buried next to Hay. They were together for over twenty years.

08-29-1880 – 10-16-1942 Elisabeth Irwin – Born in Brooklyn, New York. She was an educator, psychologist, reformer, and declared lesbian, living with her life partner Katharine Anthony and the two children they adopted. She was the founder of the Little Red School House in Manhattan, New York. It is regarded as the city’s first progressive school. Created as a joint public-private educational experiment, the school tested principles of progressive education that had been advocated since the turn of the 20th century by John Dewey. At first, only primary education was available, but in 1940 a high school was added and named after Elisabeth Irwin. Irwin died in New York Hospital in October 1942. Her funeral was conducted in Gaylordsville, Connecticut where she and Anthony maintained a summer home, having called themselves the “gay ladies of Gaylordsville.” The Little Red School House” (LREI) in Manhattan is still going strong today with progressive teaching that remains faithful to the spirit of its founder.

Edward Carpenter

08-29-1844 – 06-28-1929 Edward Carpenter – Born in Hove, Sussex, England. He was an English socialist poet, philosopher, anthologist, and early LGBT activist. A leading figure in the late 19th and early 20th century Britain, he was instrumental in the foundation of the Fabian Society and the Labour Party. He was a friend and lover of Walt Whitman. An early advocate of sexual freedoms, he had a profound influence on both D. H. Lawrence and Aurobindo and inspired E. M. Forster’s novel, Maurice. In 1891, he met George Merrill, a working-class man from Sheffield. The two men became involved in a relationship and eventually moved in together in 1898. They remained partners for the rest of their lives, a fact made all the more extraordinary by the hysteria about homosexuality generated by the Oscar Wilde trial of 1895, and the Criminal Law Amendment Bill passed a decade earlier “outlawing all forms of male homosexual contact.” Carpenter drew a great deal of inspiration from Plato’s idealized view of same-sex love, popular with Victorian gay men, who used classical allusions to ‘Greek Love’ as a coded language to discuss their sexual orientation.

08-29-1939   Joel Schumacher – Born in New York City, New York.

He is an American filmmaker. Schumacher directed three hit films in a row: St. Elmo’s Fire (1985), The Lost Boys (1987), and Flatlines (1990). He also directed two of the Batman film series.

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.

That one can be famous and rich and be depressed, connects to why western nations have the highest suicide rates: direct/obvious and passive.

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

1782 – John Laurens (October 28, 1754 – August 27, 1782) dies at the age of 28. He was an American soldier and statesman from South Carolinaduring the American Revolutionary War, best known for his criticism of slavery and efforts to help recruit slaves to fight for their freedom as U.S. soldiers. Though he was married, letters between Laurens and Alexander Hamilton(January 11, 1755 or 1757 – July 12, 1804)indicate that the two men had an affair. From a young age, Laurens apparently exhibited a lack of interest in women. Laurens biographer Gregory D. Massey states that he “reserved his primary emotional commitments for other men.” Though he eventually married, it was a union born out of regret. While in London for his studies, Laurens impregnated Martha Manning and married her to preserve the legitimacy of their child. Laurens wrote to this uncle, “Pity has obliged me to marry.” Hamilton had “at the very least” an “adolescent crush” on Laurens. Chernow also states that “Hamilton did not form friendships easily and never again revealed his interior life to another man as he had to Laurens. […] After the death of John Laurens, Hamilton shut off some compartment of his emotions and never reopened it.”

1873 – Maud Allan (August 27, 1873 – October 7, 1956) Born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. was a pianist-turned-actress, dancer and choreographer who is remembered for her “impressionistic mood settings”.

 In 1898 she took up dance. She designed and often sewed her own costumes. In 1906 her production Vision of Salomé opened in Vienna. Based loosely on Oscar Wilde’s play, Salomé, her version of the Dance of the Seven Veils became famous and notorious. Her book My Life and Dancing was published in 1908 and that year she toured England with 250 performances. She starred in the silent film, The Rug Maker’s Daughter (1915). In 1918 she was accused of being a lesbian and an associate of German wartime conspirators. She sued for libel and lost the case. She fled London after being branded a German spy who was sleeping with the prime minister’s wife. From the 1920s on she taught dance and lived with her secretary and lover, Verna Aldrich. She died in Los Angeles, California on October 7, 1956.

1951 – California Supreme Court ruled that the mere congregation of homosexuals at the Black Cat Bar was not sufficient grounds for suspending the bar’s liquor license (Stoumen v.

The Day the Beatles Met Elvis Presley – Ultimate Classic Rock

1967 – Brian Epstein (9 September 1934 – 27 August 1967) , the manager of The Beatles, dies of a drug overdose. just a few weeks shy of his 33rd birthday. A coroner’s inquest concluded that Epstein died from an overdose of the sleeping pill Carbitrol. The Fab Four were in Bangor, North Wales at the time, attending a conference by the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The death is ruled accidental and the Maharishi tells the Beatles that Epstein’s death, being in the realm of the physical world, is “not important.” The group would later renounce their association with the Maharishi and Epstein is remembered as being the man who took The Beatles from being a rough looking club act to the most successful band in the world. He also managed several other artists including Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Cilla Black and The Remo Four. The first contract between The Beatles and Epstein was auctioned in London in 2008, and was sold for £240,000.

Although Lennon often made sarcastic comments about Epstein’s homosexuality to friends and to Epstein personally, no one outside the group’s inner circle was allowed to comment. Male homosexual activity was illegal in England and Wales until September, 1967, when it was decriminalized; however, this was one month after Epstein’s death.

Blogger Nina Notes Epstein was in love with Lennon and had a weekend with him.

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.

BCE to The Suffragettes

430, Africa – St. Augustine of Hippo (November 13, 354 – August 28, 430) dies. He was an early Christian theologian and philosopher whose writings influenced the development of Western Christianity and Western philosophy. He was the bishop of Hippo Regius in north Africa and is viewed as one of the most important Fathers in Western Christianity for his writings in the Patristic Era. Among his most important works are The City of God and ConfessionsSome of his writings in “Confessions” reveal his attraction to the same-sex.

1603, Italy – During a trial in which Italian painter Caravaggio (September 29, 1571 – July 18, 1610) was charged with libel when Baglione testified that he had a male lover. Baglione’s painting of “Divine Love” has also been seen as a visual accusation of sodomy against Caravaggio. Caravaggio was an Italian painter active in RomeNaplesMalta, and Sicily between 1592 (1595?) and 1610. His paintings combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting, and they had a formative influence on Baroque painting. Since the 1970s both art scholars and historians have debated the inferences of homoeroticism in Caravaggio’s works as a way to better understand the man.

1814, Ireland – Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (August 28, 1814 – February 7,1873) is born in Dublin. He wrote vampire fiction, predating Bram Stoker‘s Dracula (1897) by 26 years. His best known, written 25 years before “Dracula,” is “Carmilla,” a story of a lesbian vampire who preyed on young women,

08-28-1825 – 07-14-1895 Karl Heinrich Ulrichs – Born in Aurich, Kingdom of Hanover (in present-day north-western Germany). He was a German writer who is recognized as the pioneer of the modern gay rights movement. His first homosexual experience was in 1839 at the age of fourteen, having had a brief affair with his riding instructor. He graduated in law and theology in 1846. From 1849 to 1857 Ulrichs worked as an official legal adviser for the district court of Hildesheim in the Kingdom of Hanover. He was dismissed when his homosexuality became open knowledge. In 1862, he came out to his family and 

friends and began to write essays that explained homosexual love as natural and biological. Ulrichs coined various terms to describe different sexual orientations and gender identities, including lesbians, bisexuals, and intersexual persons. On August 29, 1867, he became the first homosexual to speak out publicly in defense of homosexuality when he pleaded at the Congress of German Jurists in Munich for a resolution urging the repeal of anti-homosexual laws. In 1879 he left Germany and went to Italy. He continued to write and published his works at his own expense. He died in L’Aquila, Italy where he lived as the guest of a local landowner, Marquis Niccolò Persichetti, who gave the eulogy at his funeral. At the end of his eulogy, he said: “ But with your loss, oh Karl Heinrich Ulrichs, the fame of your works and your virtue will not likewise disappear…but rather, as long as intelligence, virtue, learning, insight, poetry, and science are cultivated on this earth and survive the weakness of our bodies, as long as noble prominence of genius and knowledge are rewarded, we and those who come after us will shed tears and scatter flowers on your venerated grave.”

She appeared in many television shows and in films, including The Bob Cummings Show, I Love Lucy, The Real McCoys, Perry Mason, Forever Darling, The Three Faces of Eve, and The Parent Trap.  Kulp lived her life completely in the closet. Her lesbianism was not publicly acknowledged until after her death from cancer in Palm Springs on February 3, 1991. After her retirement from acting and teaching, she moved first to a farm in Connecticut and later to Palm Springs, California, where she became involved in several charity organizations, including the Humane Society of the Desert, the Desert Theatre League, and United Cerebral Palsy. In an interview with Boze Hadleigh in 1989, she revealed that she was a lesbian. She stated, “As long as you reproduce my reply word for word, and the question, you may use it…I’d appreciate it if you’d let me phrase the question. There is more than one way. Here’s how I would ask it: ‘Do you think opposites attract?’ My own reply would be that I’m the other sort — I find that birds of a feather flock together. That answers your question.”

BCE to The Suffragettes

08-26-1904 – 01-04-1986 Christopher Isherwood – Born in Wyberslegh Hall, High Lane, Cheshire, England. He was an English novelist who embraced his attraction to men at an early age. While in Berlin in the 1930s he wrote the novel Mr. Noris Changes Trains (1935) and a short novel called Goodbye to Berlin (1939). The two are often 

Christopher Isherwood

published together in a collection called The Berlin Stories. These stories provided the inspiration for the play I Am a Camera (1951), the 1955 film, I Am a Camera (both starring Julie Harris), the Broadway musical Cabaret (1966), and the film (1972) of the same name. Isherwood collaborated on three plays with W.H. Auden. In 1946 Isherwood became an American citizen. On Valentine’s Day 1953, at the age of 48, he met teenager Don Bachardy. Despite the age difference, this meeting began a relationship, though interrupted by affairs and separations, would continue until the end of Isherwood’s life. The couple lived in Santa Monica, California. Considered Isherwood’s finest achievement was his 1964 novel A Single Man, that depicted a day in the life of George, a middle-aged, gay Englishman who is a professor at a Los Angeles university. The novel was made into a film of the same name in 2009, directed by Tom Ford and starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore.

1923 – Birth date of American photographer Mel Roberts (Aug. 26, 1923)in Toledo, Ohio. Roberts specialized in capturing the ideal California male in a series of images taken during the 1960s and 1970s.

Much of his work was published in “The Wild Ones: California Boys: The Erotic Photography of Mel Roberts.”

1929 – Chuck Renslow (August 26, 1929 – June 29, 2017) was an openly gay American businessperson, known for pioneering homoerotic photography in the mid-20th-century, and establishing many landmarks of late-20th-century gay male culture, especially in the Chicago area. His accomplishments included the founding of the Gold Coast bar, Man’s Country Baths, the International Mr. Leather competition, Chicago’s August White Party,and the magazines TriumphRawhide, and Mars.

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.

BCE to The Suffragettes

08-25-1845 – 06-13-1886 King Ludwig II(Louis Otto Frederick William) –  Born outside Munich, Germany. He was King of Bavaria from 1864 until his 

death in 1886. Crown Prince Ludwig was 19 when he ascended the Bavarian throne when his father died after a three-day illness. Although he was not prepared for high office, his youth and brooding good looks made him popular in Bavaria and elsewhere. He continued the state policies of his father and retained his ministers. His real interests were in art, music, and architecture. One of the first acts of his reign, a few months after his accession, was to summon Wagner to his court. Also in 1864, he laid the foundation stone for what is now the Gärtnerplatz-Theater. The greatest stress of Ludwig’s early reign was pressure to produce an heir. Ludwig became engaged to his cousin, Duchess Sophie Charlotte in Bavaria. They shared a deep interest in the works of Wagner. The engagement was announced on 22 January 1867. However, Ludwig repeatedly postponed the wedding date and finally canceled the engagement in October. Ludwig never married, nor had any known mistresses. It is known from his diary (begun in the 1860s), private letters, and other surviving personal documents, that he had strong homosexual desires. Throughout his reign, Ludwig had a succession of close friendships with men, including his chief equerry and Master of the Horse, Richard Hornig, Hungarian theater actor Josef Kainz, and courtier Alfons Weber.

1876 – The Sacramento Daily Union reports that Ah Lee and Ah Joe both plead not guilty in California for “crimes against nature.” Ah Joe is sentence to three years in prison. Ah Lee’s fate is unknown.

08-25-1918 – 10-14-1990 Leonard Bernstein – Born in Lawrence, Massachusetts. He was an American composer, conductor, author, music lecturer, and pianist. He was among the first conductors born and educated

 in the US to receive worldwide acclaim. Bernstein was music director of the New York Philharmonic and he conducted concerts with most of the world’s leading orchestras. His fame was also because of the music he composed for West Side StoryPeter Pan, Candide, Wonderful TownOn the Town, and On the Waterfront. In 1953, he became the first American conductor to appear at La Scala, in Milan, Italy. Bernstein became a well-known figure in the US through his fifty-three televised Young People’s Concerts for CBS. During the 1940s and 1950s, Bernstein had relationships with both men and women. In 1951 he married Costa Rican-born American actress Felicia Cohn Montealegre. It has been suggested that he chose to marry to dispel rumors of his private life to secure a major conducting appointment due to the conservative nature of orchestra boards. In a book released in October 2013, The Leonard Bernstein Letters, his wife reveals his homosexuality. Arthur Laurents (Bernstein’s collaborator in West Side Story) said that Bernstein was “a gay man who got married. He wasn’t conflicted about it at all. He was just gay.” His lover, John Gruen, died in July, 2016 at the age of 89.

Now I’ve done that and I’ve freed myself. It’s a great feeling for me to finally let go and make this statement – especially to The Advocate because this magazine has brought me so much comfort over the years.

India’s Supreme Court declares that an individual’s sexual orientation is protected under the country’s Right to Privacy law. “Sexual orientation is an essential attribute of privacy,” the decision reads. “Discrimination against an individual on the basis of sexual orientation is deeply offensive to the dignity and self-worth of the individual. Equality demands that the sexual orientation of each individual in society must be protected on an even platform.”

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.

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.

That one can be famous and rich and be depressed, connects to why western nations have the highest suicide rates: direct/obvious and passive.

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

1662, Spain – A leader of the Mexican Inquisition sent a letter to his supervisors in Spain complaining that the severe punishments given to sodomites had been ineffective. He noted that over 100 had been indicted, that a large number of the offenders were clergy, and that torture had been used to extract confessions.

08-22-1812 – 09-23-1880 Geraldine Jewsbury – Born in Measham, 

Derbyshire. She was an English novelist, book reviewer and prominent figure in London literary life. Her novels questioned the idealized role of wife and mother and her female characters were often wiser and more capable than the male ones. Her first novel, Zoe: the History of Two Lives (1845), was an immediate success. She never married and had affairs with women, including the actress Charlotte Cushman. Her most significant relationship was with Jane Carlyle, the wife of the essayist Thomas Carlyle. Their relationship, which lasted over 25 years, is reflected in Jewsbury’s writings.

Willem Arondeus

08-22-1894 – 07-01-1943 Willem Arondeus – Born in Naarden, Netherlands. He was a gay Dutch artist and author, who joined the anti-Nazi resistance movement during WWII. He lived as an openly gay man. He was involved with a group that hid Jews among the local population with forged documents. To hinder the Nazis, on March 27, 1943, Arondeus led a group in bombing the Amsterdam Public Records Office. Thousands of files were destroyed, and the attempt to compare forged documents with the registry was hindered. He was arrested by the Nazis, his last message before his execution was “Let it be known that homosexuals are not cowards.”

1894, Denmark – Willem Arondeus (August 22, 1894 – July 1, 1943) is born. He was a Dutch artist and author, who joined the Dutch anti-Nazi resistance movement during World War II. He participated in the bombing of the Amsterdam public records office to hinder the Nazi German effort to identify Dutch Jews. Arondeus was caught and executed soon after his arrest. He was openly gay before the war and defiantly asserted his sexuality before his execution. In his last message before his execution, Arondeus, who had lived openly as a gay man before the war, asked his lawyer to “Let it be known that homosexuals are not cowards!”

Laszlo Almasy

08-22-1895 – 03-22-1951 László Almásy – Born in Borostyánkö, Austria-Hungary. He was a Hungarian aristocrat, motorist, desert researcher, aviator, Scout-leader, and soldier who also served as the basis for the protagonist in the 1992 novel, The English Patient and the movie based on it. Letters discovered in 2010 in Germany written by Almásy proved he was gay. His lover was a young soldier named Hans Entholt, who was killed after stepping on a landmine. The letters (located at the Institute of African Studies) also confirm that “Egyptian princes were among his lovers.”

1914, France – Violette Morris (April 18, 1893 – April 26, 1944), marries a man on this day. She won two gold and one silver medals at the Women’s World Games in 1921–1922. Starting in 1936 she worked with the Gestapo during World War II. She was killed in 1944 in a Resistance-led ambush as a traitor to the French state. Morris was a gifted athlete, becoming the first French woman to excel at shot put and discus, and playing on two separate women’s football teams. She played for Fémina Sports from 1917 until 1919, and for Olympique de Paris from 1920 to 1926. Both teams were based in Paris. She also played on the French women’s national team. She was refused license renewal by the Fédération Française sportive Féminine (FFSF – French Women’s Athletic Federation) amid complaints of her bisexual lifestyle and was therefore barred from participating in the 1928 Summer Olympics. The agency cited her lack of morals, especially in light of the fact that one of her lovers, Raoul Paoli, made public her bisexuality. Paoli had recently left Morris after she had initially decided to undergo an elective mastectomy in order to fit into racing cars more easily. At the end of December 1935, Morris was recruited by the Sicherheitsdienst(Security Service), a wing of the infamous SS of Nazi Germany. She was invited, with honor, to attend the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin at the personal behest of Adolf Hitler. She was killed along a country road by members of a French resistance group on 26 April 1944, at the age of 51, while out driving with friends who were also collaborators.

08-22-1914 – 04-26-1992   Jack Dunphy (born John Paul Dunphy) – Born in Atlantic City, New Jersey and raised in a working-class neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was an American novelist and playwright, and partner of American author Truman Capote. Dunphy was  a trained ballet dancer and danced at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. He also toured with the George Balanchine company in South America in 1941. In 1939, he married Joan McCracken, another dancer. Both appeared in the original Broadway production of Oklahoma! in 1943. In 1944, Dunphy enlisted in the U.S. Army. During his service, he published his first work, The Life of a Carrot, in Short Story magazine. Dunphy met Capote in 1948. At that time he was just getting over a painful divorce from McCracken. His novel John Fury had also been published at this time. In 1950, the two writers settled in Taormina, Sicily in a house that D.H. Lawrence had once lived. Although Dunphy was ten years older than Capote, the couple stayed together until Capote’s death in 1984. Dunphy was named as the chief beneficiary. Eight years later, Dunphy died of cancer in New York. Following his death, some of the money from their estates was donated to The Nature Conservancy, which was used to acquire Crooked Pond on the Long Island Greenbelt. The ashes of both men were scattered there and a marker near the pond commemorates them.

1906

The Victor Talking Machine Company of Camden, New Jersey began to manufacture a record player they called the Victrola. The hand-cranked unit, with horn cabinet, retailed for $200. Records were purchased separately, usually in the appliance stores that sold the machines, at a cost of between $1 and $7. Famed conductor John Philip Sousa predicted “a marked deterioration in American music” and said that generations of amateur musicians would give way to “canned music.”

1915, UK – Birth date of British actor Hugh Paddick  (August 22, 1915 – November 9, 2000)  in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire. He was an English actor whose most notable role was in the 1960s BBC radio show Round the Horne, in sketches such as “Charles and Fiona” (as Charles) and “Julian and Sandy” (as Julian). Both he and Kenneth Williams are largely responsible for introducing the underground language polari to the British public. Paddick was gay and lived for over thirty years with his partner Francis. The two men were keen gardeners at their west London home. He was distantly related to Brian Paddick, Britain’s first openly gay police commander. Paddick died in Milton KeynesBuckinghamshire in November 2000, aged 85.

James Kirkwood Jr.

08-22-1924 – 04-21-1989 James Kirkwood, Jr. – Born in Los Angeles, California. He was an American playwright, author, and actor. In 1976 he received the Tony Award, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Book of a Musical, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the Broadway hit A Chorus Line. Though Kirkwood was heavily involved with ballerina Muriel Bentley, among other women as a young man, by his forties he was exclusively gay. His public stance on homosexuality was confused, to say the least. He frequently exhibited terror at the prospect of being outed but at the same time insisted on planting clues to his sexuality in his work by playing gay supporting characters.

The Friends of Dorothy Era and The Hayes Code

08-22-1949 Diana Nyad – Born in New York City, New York. She is an American world record-holding swimmer, author, journalist, motivational

1950s The Decade the public learned heterosexual women wanted sex

The Civil Rights 60s: When the Boomers were under 30

1962

An early form of karaoke is introduced at the Radio Show at Earl’s Court in London, England. A new machine allows the integration of voice to guitars, tapes and even radio, making it possible to sing and play along with records.

1965 – David Peter Reimer is born (August 22, 1965 – May 4, 2004). He was a Canadian man born biologically male but  who was reassigned as female by Dr. John Money after his penis was destroyed in infancy by a botched circumcision. He committed suicide in 2004. In 955, Money (1921-2006), a sexologist and psychologist, introduced the concept of ‘gender role’ into the transsexual debate. Money later was heavily criticized over Reimer’s suicide. David Reimer, an identical twin, was mutilated at 8-months old in a botched circumcision and then surgically reassigned by Money and raised as a girl. But he never felt female on the inside (even though his parents followed Money’s advice and hid the fact of his birth sex from him), despite Money’s claims to the contrary. His life, especially at school, was sheer hell because others never really perceived him to be a girl either, despite his girl drag. By age 16, Reimer underwent a second reassignment at his own insistence so that he could live as the boy he knew himself to be. In the meantime, however, Money had convinced the medical establishment and the lay public, despite growing evidence to the contrary in his “girl” twin, that babies could be arbitrarily assigned a gender with no psychological consequences. Today, still, five children a day are surgically “corrected” at birth because of this one “case study” and Money’s defense of his handling of David’s life. With the help of Drs. Milton Diamond and H.K. Sigmundson, Reimer would finally tell the medical establishment the truth about his life in 1997 in the Archives of Adolescent and Pediatric Medicine, [“Sex reassignment at birth. Long-term review and clinical implications” Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med, Mar 1997; 151: 298 – 304.], challenging the firmly established medical and popular myth that gender was mostly a function of nurture rather than nature. Later that year, Reimer would work with author John Colapinto to tell his story to the lay public, first under a pseudonym, in Rolling Stone

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.

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.
