BCE to The Suffragettes

09-15-1881 – 05-22-1955 Lena Madesin Phillips – Born in Nicholasville, 

Kentucky. She was an American lawyer who founded the National Business and Professional Women’s Clubs in 1919 and by 1930, the International Federation of Business and Professional Women. Phillips studied law at the University of Kentucky. She was the first women to graduate from law school in 1917 with full honors, plus she had the highest marks for her law class. In 1919, she met Marjory Lacey-Baker, an American playwright and actress. They had a relationship for 36 years. Phillips described their relationship with Lacey-Baker as “the woman with whom I share my home.”

09-15-1924 – 03-21-2005   Bobby Short – Born in Danville, Illinois. Two of his classmates were Dick Van Dyke and Donald O’Connor. He left home at the 

age of eleven with his mother’s permission and became a busker (a person that performs music in the street for monetary donations). His musical career in clubs began in the 1940s. In 1968 he began playing at the Café Carlyle in New York City and remained as a featured performer for over 35 years. He is best known for his interpretations of songs by Rodgers and Hart, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, George & Ira Gershwin, and many others. He also championed African-American composers such as Eubie Blake, Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, and Billy Strayhorn. Although he never publicly stated that he was gay, it was well known among his friends, fellow musicians, and even among some of his fans. When asked by a friend why 

he hadn’t taken part in any gay pride marches of the 1970s and 1980s, Short response was, “I have a living to make! I can’t afford to march in the Gay Pride Parade.” He died in 2005 of leukemia and is buried in Danville, Illinois, where he was born. A documentary about the Carlyle Hotel, titled Always at The Carlyle, has footage of Bobby Short performing. 

09-15-1932 Ann Bannon (born Ann Weldy) – Born in Joliet, Illinois. She is an American author who, from 1957 to 1962, wrote six lesbian pulp fiction 

Ann Bannon

novels known as The Beebo Brinker Chronicles. She is known as “The Queen of Lesbian Pulp Fiction.” For an entire generation, The Beebo Brinker Chronicles provided the first representation in literature that they had ever read of women loving women without killing themselves. Bannon and others helped to end the isolation and ignorance that had kept thousands of gay women in emotional prisons, and paved the way for the new generation of lesbian writers who were to follow. Back in the repressive 1950s and 1960s, her books were a lifesaver for many women, as the avalanche of letters Bannon received from that time attest.

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.

Elvis and Lenny Bruce

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

Extra Credit:

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

The last elvis fan screamed at by the Memphis mafia

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.
