BCE to The Suffragettes
09-04-1891 – 04-09-1946 Lyle Chambers Saxon – Born in Baton Rouge,
Louisiana. He was New Orleans’ most popular writer during the second quarter of the twentieth century. What he is best known for is the restoration and preservation of the French Quarter. Saxon lived in the French Quarter when his friends begged him not to live “among thieves and squalor” that the city’s oldest section then attracted. He personally restored two important buildings and led the city’s preservation movement. Because of his newspaper writings in The Times-Picayune, the French Quarter became “more of an art colony, less an underworld.” Saxon’s gay affairs were discreet, and never a problem for his straight friends. Some say his only great love was his childhood friend, George Favrot, who died in Paris during WWI. Other sources maintain that he had a sexual relationship with Joe Gilmore, his long-time black valet.
09-04-1905 – 12-13-1983 Mary Renault – Born in Forest Gate, Essex, England. She was an English writer best known for her historical novels set in Ancient Greece. She went to Oxford where one of her tutors was J.R.R.
Tolkien. After she left Oxford, she found work as a nurse at the Radcliffe Infirmary. It was there that she met and fell in love with a fellow nurse, Julie Mullard. At the same time, she began writing fiction between her shifts and published her first novel, a hospital romance called Purposes of Love (1939). In 1948, she won an MGM award for her fourth novel, Return to Night (1947). The award was $150,000. The British government took 80 percent in taxes. With the money that was left, Renault and Mullard left England for South Africa, which was more tolerant of homosexuality and was also tax-free. In South Africa, the women found a community of gay expatriates. Renault never returned to England, even for a visit.

The Wolfenden report is published in England which recommends “that homosexual behavior between consenting adults in private should no longer be a criminal offense.” It recommends that private consensual sex acts between men aged 21 or older be decriminalized. The Report of the Departmental Committee on Homosexual Offences and Prostitution (better known as the Wolfenden report, after Lord Wolfenden, the chairman of the committee) was published in Britain after a succession of well-known men, including Lord Montagu, Michael Pitt-Rivers and Peter Wildeblood, were convicted of homosexual offences.

a post on Instagram that read, “If you like it you should be able to put a ring on it,” followed by the hashtag “We will unite 4 marriage equality!” She also posted a photo of the Human Rights logo with the message, “It’s about time…show your support!” Both she and her husband Jay-Z came out in support of gay marriage during an interview with CNN. “I’ve always thought it as something that was still holding the country back,” she said. “What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. It’s no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination, plain and simple.” Her mother-in-law, Gloria Carter, has since come out as a lesbian.

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina Notes:
To Each Decade it’s Age of Understanding, do not under consider differing geographies, nor the heterosexual clash of cultures – in particular – do not read backwards the words of humans now to earlier ages, to each own expression in culture and under legal conditions; and to all biology applies, regardless of what humans think is understood, rather than told, the why and when.
Sex the act of; is central to religion, war – who gets to what to who- vs which has had a no.
Understood as noting to be debated, quibbled nor negotiated.
Both in personal lives, in public and the workplaces, which were gender divided owing to sexual roles, across cultures and times.
music and movie information from my previous blog
where I note, The Last Elvis Secret given what the Memphis Mafia wrote about Presley Parties, the only thing not officially and rarely luridly written about was the balance of probability Elvis Presley was bisexual, and was described by heterosexual men as being so attractive as to raise a question – including Jerry Reed, writer and performer. And given Larry Geller’s descriptions of being accused by other Memphis Mafia members of being gay with Elvis during the private hair cut sessions -rather makes it seem the Memphis Mafia were jealous, and 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.
from my original blog:
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.
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
now factor in how to phrase that sentence and include 1 ethnicity 2 disability – physical of body and/or of the brain and persons without religion/spirituality
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.
