BCE to The Suffragettes

10-03-1858 – 04-21-1924 Eleonora Duse – Born in Vigevano, Italy. She was an 

Italian actress, known as Duse. Because of her total assumption of the roles she portrayed, she is regarded as one of the greatest actors of all time. Duse and Sarah Bernhardt were often compared and argued about who was best. George Bernard Shaw thought Duse the better actress. Ellen Terry, a famous British actress of the time and knew them both well, stated, “How futile it is to make comparisons! Better far to thank heaven for both these women.” In 1896, Duse performed in Washington, D.C., President Grover Cleveland and his wife attended every performance. Washington society was shocked when the First Lady held a tea in Duse’s honor at the White House, the first for an actress. In 1909, she met and had an affair with feminist Lina Poletti. It was also rumored that she had an affair with dancer Isadora Duncan. She did have affairs with men. On July 30, 1923, Duse became the first woman (and Italian) to be featured on the cover of Time magazine.

10-03-1894 – 03-06-1979 Wilna Hervey – Born in San Francisco, California, she grew up in affluent circumstances in New York. She was an American silent film actress and artist. In the late 1910s, Hervey studied at the Art Students League in 

New York City. Her acting career began in 1916 and she took on the name Wilna Wilde. In 1919, she was cast in the role of “The Powerful Katrinka” in the silent film series based on the comic strip, Toonerville Folks. Much of the slapstick comedy in the series revolves around Hervey’s physical stature — she was 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 300 pounds. While working on the production, she met Nan Mason (1896-1982), the daughter of her co-star Dan Mason. Nan and Hervey became life partners, remaining together 59 years, until Hervey’s death in 1979. From 1922 to 1929, the couple split their time between painting and farming in Woodstock, New York and acting opportunities in California. Both found artistic success during the 1960s. They are buried together at Artists Cemetery, Woodstock, New York. Hervey’s personal papers, including an unpublished memoir, are held at the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.

10-03-1877 – 07-07-1965 Virginia Gildersleeve – Born in New York City, New York. She was an American academic, Dean of Barnard College, and the only US female delegate to the April 1945 San 

Francisco United Nations Conference, which negotiated the UN Charter and created the United Nations. During WWI, she was a strong supporter of the formation of the League of Nations. In 1942, during WWII, she was instrumental in founding the WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service). Its second in command was Gildersleeve’s long-time companion, English Professor, Elizabeth Reynard. Prior to her relationship with Reynard, she was intimately involved with Caroline Spurgeon (the first female university professor in London, England). In the 1940s, she paid for the full scholarship of at least one African-American student from Harlem out of her own pocket. Rosalind Rosenberg, Gildersleeve’s biographer, said of her, “By insisting that women have the right to every educational opportunity open to men, and by fighting her whole life to secure that opportunity, she helped establish the bedrock on which feminists have been building ever since.” Gildersleeve and Reynard are buried together at Saint Matthew’s Episcopal Churchyard, Bedford, New York.

10-03-1897 – 12-24-1982 Louis Aragon (born Louis Andrieux) – Born in Paris, France. Bisexual poet, essayist, and novelist. 

louis-aragon

Having been involved in Dadaism from 1919 to 1924, he became a founding member of Surrealism in 1924, with André Breton and Philippe Soupault. In 1939 he married Russian-born author Elsa Triolet. Aragon served France in two world wars and lived long enough to ride in gay pride parades in a pink convertible during the 1970s. After the death of his wife in 1970, he lived openly as a homosexual with poet Michel Larivière, who became his lover and companion. He was and still is a popular poet in France because many of his poems have been set to music and sung by a variety of singers.

10-03-1925 – 07-31-2012 Gore Vidal – Born in West Point, New York. He was an American writer of novels, essays, screenplays, and stage plays. He was also an intellectual known for his wit. As a political commentator and essayist, Vidal’s 

gore-vidal

principal subject was the history of the United States and its society. Vidal’s public debates on sex, politics, and religion with other intellectuals and writers, occasionally became continual quarrels, as with William F. Buckley Jr. and Norman Mailer. Vidal believed that men and women are pansexual. He rejected the adjectives “homosexual” and “heterosexual” when used as nouns, as inherently false terms used to classify and control people in society. In the genre of social satire, Myra Breckinridge (1968) he explores the mutability of gender-role and sexual-orientation as being social constructs established by social mores. In 1950, Gore Vidal met Howard Austen, who became his life-partner in a 53-year relationship. Vidal said that he refused to call himself “gay”, because he was not an adjective, because “to be categorized is, simply, to be enslaved. I have never thought of myself as a victim…I’ve said —a thousand times?—in print and on TV, that everyone is bisexual.”

1928 – Erik Belton Evers Bruhn (3 October 1928 – 1 April 1986) is born. He was aDanishdanseur, choreographer, artistic director, actor, and author. Nureyev (17 March 1938 – 6 January 1993)  met Erik Bruhn(3 October 1928 – 1 April 1986) were together off and on in a volatile relationship for 25 years until Bruhn’s death in 1986.

she served from 2004 to 2012 as a member of the California State Senate. She left office in December 2012 due to term limits. Effective January 1, 2013, she became the executive director of the California Plug-In Vehicle Collaborative. The collaborative promotes the acceptance and availability of all-electric cars. Kehoe, an out lesbian, is a strong supporter of equal rights for the LGBT community.

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

1961: In Hollywood, the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA) announces a revision of its production code. “In keeping with the culture, the mores and the values of our time,” the revision advises, “homosexuality and other sexual aberrations may now be treated with care, discretion and restraint.” The new ruling paves the way for the release of films like The Children’s Hour and Advise and Consent, but the MPPDA later amends the revision to specify that “sexual aberration” may be “suggested but not actually spelled out.”

1970 – Bisexual singer Janis Joplin (January 19, 1943 – October 4, 1970) Janis Joplin listened to the instrumental track for “Buried Alive In The Blues” at Sunset Studios, intending to record the vocal for her album Pearl on October 5. . She was an American rock, soul and blues singer and songwriter, and one of the most successful and widely-known female rock stars of her era. After releasing three albums, she died of a heroin overdose at the age of 27. A fourth album, Pearl, was released in January 1971, just over three months after her death. It reached number one on the Billboard charts.Joplin, highly respected for her charismatic performing ability, was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. Audiences and critics alike referred to her stage presence as “electric”.She remains one of the top-selling musicians in the United States, with Recording Industry Association of America certifications of 15.5 million albums sold. The film The Rose (1979) is loosely based on Joplin’s life. Originally planned to be titled Pearl—Joplin’s nickname and the title of her last album—the film was fictionalized after her family declined to allow the producers the rights to her story.Bette Midler earned a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the film.

1973

From October 1st to 6th, Gays For Equality sponsored Winnipeg’s first Gay Pride Week

NYC health administrator Howard J. Brown publicly acknowledges his homosexuality saying ” . . . you get to a point where you want to leave a legacy–in a sense this can help free the generation that comes after us from the dreadful agony of secrecy, the constant need to hide.”

He later became the director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.  He was a founder of the National Gay Task Force (now the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force) and a former New York City Health Services Administrator and physician, who helped change the image of gay men and lesbians in the United States by coming out publicly in 1973. Brown’s tenure as a gay activist proved brief. Plagued by coronary disease, he suffered a second heart attack on February 1, 1975 and died at the age of fifty. His estate published his autobiography, Familiar Faces, Hidden Lives, a book that also contains anecdotal stories of discrimination experienced by other gay men throughout America. In 1973, most Americans commonly viewed gay men as effeminate narcissists too disturbed to be respectable members of society. Brown helped change that image. The discovery that a distinguished public figure, the very epitome of respectability as a physician, could also be a homosexual gave the cause of gay liberation a tremendous boost. In 1974 an alternative health center, specializing in sexually transmitted diseases, and catering to gay men and lesbians, was opened in Chicago as the Howard Brown Memorial Clinic (now known as Howard Brown Health Center). It has since become the premier Midwest health center specializing in the medical and psychosocial needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.

interview with Alexander Wang for Interview Magazine. He said, “For instance, one big issue in hip hop is the gay thing. It’s 2013, and it’s a shame that, to this day, that topic still gets people all excited. It’s crazy. And it makes me upset that this topic even matters when it comes to hip hop, because it makes it seem like everybody in hip hop is small-minded or stupid—and that’s not the case.” Rocky said that he treats everybody equal and he wants his listeners and followers to do the same.

The judge disagreed, saying to Cain “I hope you rot in hell because what you did was callous and cruel.” Runcorn was a British physicist whose paleomagneticreconstruction of the relative motions of Europe and America revived the theory of continental drift and was a major contribution to plate tectonics.

10-03-2011 Gay Voices (now called Queer Voices), begins on Huffington Post. It has been consistently ranked the number one lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender news/culture website on the Internet by comScore. The Huffington Post is the only mainstream organization with a section specifically dedicated to LGBT news.

According to new scientific research, Queen’s ‘We Are The Champions’ was found to be the catchiest song ever written. Musicologist Dr Alisun Pawley from the University of London, England, conducted research into what makes a song memorable and compiled a list of the ten “catchiest” songs of all time. During the research, they discovered that sing-along songs contained four key elements: long and detailed musical phrases, multiple pitch changes in a song’s ‘hook’, male vocalists, and higher male voices making a noticeable vocal effort. Y.M.C.A. by the Village People, Sum 41’s Fat Lip, and Europe’s The Final Countdown were also in the list.

Great footage of Jill and Nikki’s wedding accompanied by Goldstein’s emotional narration. “You come to terms with it…it’s suppose to be this way,” Goldstein observes. The travel site endorses gay marriage and shows in the video how it brings families together when it matters the most.

I have always been and always will be a proud gay man.”

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:

B) men and women

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

1650 – The Plymouth colony court found Sara White Norman guilty of lewd behavior on a bed with Mary Vincent Hammon. She was given a warning and ordered to publicly acknowledge her unchaste behavior. Their trial documents are the only known record of sex between female English colonists in North America in the 17th century. Hammon was only admonished, perhaps because she was younger than sixteen,but in 1650 Norman was convicted and required to acknowledge publicly her “unchaste behavior” with Hammon, as well as warned against future offenses.This may be the only conviction for lesbianism in American history. Sarah White, of whom little is known, married Hugh Norman in 1639. That year, Mary Vincent, then about 15, married Benjamin Hammon, who had arrived from London in 1634.  During the time of Sarah’s prosecution (1648-1650), her husband deserted her and returned to England,Mary and her husband later had a number of children and she was widowed in 1703.

1849, Benin – Explorer Frederick Forbes arrives in the Kingdom of Dahomey (1600-1894) where he saw thousands of Amazons. Amazon tribes have existed in multiple time periods and continents, characterized as female-bodied with traditionally male traits. The Dahomean state became widely known for its corps of female soldiers. Their origins are debated; they may have formed from a palace guard or from gbetos (female hunting teams).They were organized around 1729 to fill out the army and make it look larger in battle, armed only with banners. The women reportedly behaved so courageously they became a permanent corps. In the beginning, the soldiers were criminals pressed into service rather than being executed. Eventually, however, the corps became respected enough that King Ghezo ordered every family to send him their daughters, with the fittest being chosen as soldiers

10-02-1902 – 06-18-1969 Jerzy Zawieyski – Born in Łódź, Poland. He was a Polish playwright, prose writer, Catholic political 

jerzy-zawieyski

activist, and amateur stage actor. He wrote psychological, social, moral and historical novels, dramas, stories, essays, and journals. During the German occupation of Poland, he was active in the underground cultural movement. After WWII, Zawieyski worked as a lecturer at the Catholic University of Lubin. Zawieyski was gay. In 1933 he met Stanislaw Trębaczkiewicz. They fell in love and lived together until his death. Both, in accordance with their wishes, are buried in the same grave in Laski Cemetery near Warsaw.

and a member of the Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) political party. He was the French Minister of Culture from May 7, 2002 – March 31, 2004. He is openly gay

10-02-1949 Annie Leibovitz – Born in Waterbury, Connecticut. She is an American portrait photographer. In 1970 she started her career as a staff photographer, working for Rolling Stone magazine. In 1973 she was named chief photographer of 

annie-leibovitz

Rolling Stone, a job she would hold for 10 years. On December 8, 1980, Leibovitz had a photoshoot with John Lennon for Rolling Stone. She was the last person to professionally photograph Lennon—he was shot and killed five hours later. Leibovitz had a relationship with writer and essayist Susan Sontag from 1989 until Sontag’s death in 2004. In 2009, Leibovitz wrote in A Photographer’s Life that, “Words like ‘companion’ and ‘partner’ were not in our vocabulary. We were two people who helped each other throughout our lives. The closest word is still ‘friend.’” That same year, she said the description “lover” was accurate. She later reiterated, “Call us ‘lovers’. I like ‘lovers.’ You know, ‘lovers’ sounds romantic. I mean, I want to be perfectly clear. I loved Susan.”

1950s The Decade the public learned heterosexual women wanted sex

1955 – Paula Ettelbrick (Oct. 2, 1955-Oct. 5, 2011), who has died of ovarian cancer aged 56, was an internationally acclaimed US-based lawyer and one of the pioneers of the movement for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality.

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 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.

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.

Out of the controversy over a flag came the idea for a party. It began when the city of Iqaluit raised a rainbow flag at city hall to protest anti-gay laws in Russia during the 2014 Winter Olympics, at the initiative of city Councillor Kenny Bell and Iqaluit resident Anubha Momin. Councillor Simon Nattaq argued that the decision had not been approved by council, and Nunavut Tunngavik Inc president Cathy Towtongie commended Nattaq for speaking out. These events sparked lively discussion among the residents of Nunavut about same-sex issues, including whether it’s within Inuit custom to be gay.

In the midst of this discussion, the idea for a party emerged, specifically, an Iqaluit Pride party, the first of its kind in the capital city of Nunavut.

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.

He was the King of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from 1573 to 1575 and King of France from 1574 until his death. He was the last French monarch of the House of Valois. Reports that Henry engaged in same sex relations with his court favorites, known as the mignons,date back to his own time. On August 1, 1589, Henry III lodged with his army at Saint-Cloud, and was preparing to attack Paris, when a young fanatical Dominican friarJacques Clément, carrying false papers, was granted access to deliver important documents to the king. The monk gave the king a bundle of papers and stated that he had a secret message to deliver. The king signaled for his attendants to step back for privacy, and Clément whispered in his ear while plunging a knife into his abdomen. Clément was then killed on the spot by the guards.

All of the women insisted they were innocent and refused to pay the fine. Following the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, during the 1920s, Vernon supported women candidates for Congress and lobbied on behalf of the Equal Rights Amendment. From 1951 until her death in 1975, Vernon lived with Consuelo Reyes-Calderon in Washington, DC.

She was an American photojournalist known for documenting major events within the Feminist Movement, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Gay Rights Movement in the United States. In 1960 she worked for CBS and from 1962–1964 she was with the Saturday Evening Post. She also worked for the National Observer but left in 1977 and became independent. Because of her dedication to photographing the women’s movement, she became known as the official photographer. Lane was one of the few photographers to document the Stonewall Riots. Lesbian author and activist Sarah Schulman wrote, “her photos from the era are classics, showing women, men, trans people, drag, and the people of color intrinsic to the movement at the time.” Lane’s photographs have been featured in more than 70 documentaries and books about the Stonewall Riots. Her legacy is preserved at the Schlesinger Library at Harvard University, the Library of Congress, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the New York Public Library, the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Brooklyn, and the Rubenstein Library at Duke University. Lane was mostly private about her own sexuality, becoming more open in her later years. She is listed in LGBT artists from the United States.

09-19-1934 Brian Epstein – Born in Liverpool, Lancashire, England. He was an English music entrepreneur, best known for managing the Beatles. Epstein first discovered the Beatles in November 1961, during a lunchtime Cavern Club performance. He was instantly impressed and saw great potential in the group. After being rejected by nearly all major recording companies in London, Epstein secured a meeting with George Martin, head of EMI’s Parlophone label. In May 1962, Martin agreed to sign the Beatles, partly because of Epstein’s conviction that the group would become internationally famous. In 1997, Paul McCartney said, “If anyone was the Fifth Beatle, it was Brian.” Epstein’s homosexuality was not publicly known until some years after his death, although it had been an open secret among his friends and business associates. McCartney said that when Epstein started to manage the Beatles they knew that he was homosexual but did not care, because he encouraged them professionally and offered them access to previously off-limits social circles. Epstein died of an overdose of Carbitral, a sleeping pill, on August 27, 1967. At the inquest of his death, it was officially ruled an accident; caused by a gradual buildup of Carbitral in his system, combined with alcohol. He was 32. Epstein had a hard time accepting that he was gay and it probably contributed to his overuse of drugs.

09-18-1905 – 04-15-1990 Greta Garbo – Born in Stockholm, Sweden. She was a Swedish 

film actress and an international star. Garbo was nominated three times for the Academy Award for Best Actress and received an honorary one in 1954 for her “luminous and unforgettable screen performances.” She retired from acting at the age of 35, after being in 28 films. Although she was offered many opportunities to return to the screen, she declined all of them. Garbo had intimate relationships with women as well as men. Her most famous romance was with John Gilbert. “I was in love with him,” she said. “But I froze. I was afraid he would tell me what to do and boss me. I always wanted to be the boss.” In 1927 Garbo is thought to have had an affair with stage and screen actress Lilyan Tashman. Silent film star Louise Brooks stated that she and Garbo had a brief liaison in 1928. In 1931, Garbo befriended the writer and out 

lesbian, Mercedes de Acosta. According to Garbo’s and de Acosta’s biographers, they had a sporadic and volatile romance. The two remained friends for almost 30 years during which time Garbo wrote de Acosta 181 letters, cards, and telegrams, which are kept at the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia. Garbo’s family, which controls her estate, has made only 87 of them public. In 2005 Swedish actress Mini Pollak, a close friend in drama school released 60 letters Garbo had written her in their long correspondence. Several letters suggest she may have had romantic feelings for Pollak for many years. After learning of Pollak’s pregnancy in 1930, Garbo wrote “We cannot help our nature, as God has created it. But I have always thought 

you and I belonged together.” In 1975 she wrote a poem about not being able to touch the hand of her friend with whom she might have been walking through life. Greta Garbo died at the age of 84 as a result of pneumonia and renal failure on April 15, 1990. As Ephraim Katz wrote, “ Of all the stars who have ever fired the imaginations of audiences, none has quite projected a magnetism and a mystique equal to Garbo’s.”

Later that year, her book was put on the list for Literature Non-Fiction Award of the Australian Human Rights Commission’s 2008 Human Rights Awards. She is openly lesbian. Maltzahn said, “When I was in my 20s, not long after I came out, I read a coming-out story of sorts, where a woman in her 50s talked about having come out after a life of marriage and children. In it, she talked about what she called life-long lesbians and that she envied them. She said that when she looked back on her life, she felt as though for much of it she had lived her life in black and white. In contrast, as a lesbian, with all the difficulties that involved, life was in technicolor.”

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.

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.

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.

Kate was in her mid-30s and a generally unknown sculptor when her doctoral dissertation at Columbia University, “Sexual Politics,” was published by Doubleday and Co. Her core premise was that the relationship between the sexes is political, with the definition of politics including, as she once said, “arrangements whereby one group of persons is controlled by another.” After teaching briefly at the University of North Carolina, she pursued her art career in Japan and then New York, where she took a job at Barnard College teaching English literature. In 1965 she married the Japanese sculptor Fumio Yoshimura, but she rejected many traditional ideas of marriage and eventually came out as a lesbian. Her autobiographical work Flying, published in 1974, told of the dizzying fame “Sexual Politics” had brought and her reaction to it. Sita, in 1977, dealt with her sexuality.

Bush’s inaction in fighting AIDS. Robinson reported that this action was inspired by Wojnarowicz’s 1991 memoir Close to the Knives, which imagined “what it would be like if, each time a lover, friend or stranger died of this disease, their friends, lovers or neighbors would take the dead body and drive with it in a car a hundred miles an hour to Washington DC and blast through the gates of the White House and come to a screeching halt before the entrance and dump their lifeless form on the front steps.” In 1996, Wojnarowicz’s ashes were scattered on the White House lawn.

I like girls as well, I’ve had relationships with women but that doesn’t mean I don’t still love Blake.” and “ I don’t care what people think about me being bi — I do what feels good.” Winehouse put sexy girl tattoos on her body, saying, “I like pin-up girls.

1986 – Leslie Blanchard dies from AIDS in the arms of his partner of ten year, Miguel Braschi, in New York. Braschi’s name is not on the lease of their apartment so he is not protected by rent control. In 1989 the New York Court of Appeals case Braschi v Stahl Associates Co that decided that the surviving partner of a same-sex relationship counted as “family” under New York law and was thus able to continue living in a rent controlled apartment belonging to the deceased partner. In a subsequent appeal, the court found that a “more realistic, and certainly equally valid, view of a family includes two adult lifetime partners whose relationship is long term and characterized by an emotional and financial commitment and interdependence”. Application of this standard allowed Braschi to be considered a family member and prevented his eviction from the apartment. The decision represents the first time a court in the United States granted any kind of legal recognition to a same-sex couple

1989 – ACT UP led a noon protest of 350 people in front of the New York Stock Exchange, targeting Burroughs Wellcome and other companies that it felt were profiteering from the epidemic by their high pricing of the AIDS drug AZT, which was unaffordable to most people living with HIV.

As a result of these demonstrations, Burroughs Wellcome lowered the price of AZT by 20 percent four days later.

2000

On September 14, six male officers from the Toronto Police raided Club Toronto during a lesbian bathhouse event known as the “Pussy Palace.” This event resulted in protests and pickets of the Toronto police’s 52 Division. In 2002, an Ontario provincial court judge ruled that police were wrong to raid the party and a 2005 class action lawsuit  and complaint to the Ontario Human Rights Commission resulted in a $350,000 settlement which included a formal apology in writing and required the force to establish cultural competency training for all members regarding the LGBT community.

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.

Carter did marry twice and had children. It was upon her death that the public learned that she was a lesbian and that her heir and the custodial parent of her children, was her domestic partner, Ann Kaser.

09-13-1944 Bettina Aptheker – Born in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. She is an American political activist, feminist, professor, and author. A former member of the Communist Party USA like her parents, she was active in civil rights and antiwar movements

1950s The Decade the public learned heterosexual women wanted sex

 1955

Little Richard entered J&M Studios in New Orleans for a two day recording session. Things were not going well and during a break, Richard and his producer, Bumps Blackwell, went to the Dew Drop Inn. With few people there and an old upright piano, Richard started playing like crazy, singing loud, lewd and hamming it up. Blackwell was stunned… why couldn’t he record this? They went back to J&M with only fifteen minutes left in the session and “Tutti Fruiti, good booty” became “Tutti Fruiti, aw-rootie”. The song would be Richard’s break-out hit and managed to make it to #17 early the following year, but a cover by Pat Boone over shadowed Richard’s version and went to #12 on the Billboard Pop chart.

1958

Cliff Richard made his British TV debut on Jack Good’s Oh Boy program, where he performed “Move It”. Before he was allowed to appear on the show, Richard was ordered to remove his sideburns, he did.

1959

Currie Grant brought Priscilla Beaulieu to a party at his apartment. Priscilla said to Elvis, “It’s a pleasure to meet you” and remarked that it was a shame the Army had taken away his sideburns. He played a few songs for her on the guitar. They were immediately smitten with each other. He later described her to friends as smart, and said she treated him like an ordinary guy. Elvis called her “the woman I’ve been looking for my whole life.”

2004, Australia – The Gay and Lesbian Kingdom declares war on the Australian government for its failure to recognize same-sex marriages. They form a micro-nation and, under the Unjust Enrichment law, demand territorial compensation. While there was no military action, it did cement the Kingdom’s assertion that they exist as an independent country. The Gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the Coral Sea Islands (also known as The Gay Kingdom of the Coral Sea – for example on postage stamps) was established as a symbolic political protest by a group of gay rights activists based in Australia. Declared in 2004 in response to the Australian government’s refusal to recognize same-sex marriages, it was founded on Australia’s external overseas Territory of the Coral Sea Islands, a group of uninhabited islets east of the Great Barrier Reef. It is an expression of queer nationalism.

BCE to The Suffragettes

1857, UK – The word gay, which appears in a pictured cartoon in Punch magazine, is used to refer to prostitution. It arrived in English during the 12th century from Old French gai, most likely deriving ultimately from a Germanic source. In English, the word’s primary meaning was “joyful”, “carefree”, “bright” and “showy”, and the word was very commonly used with this meaning in speech and literature. For example, the optimistic 1890s are still often referred to as the Gay Nineties. The title of the 1938 French ballet Gaîté Parisienne (“Parisian Gaiety”), which became the 1941 Warner Brothers movie, The Gay Parisian, also illustrates this connotation. It was apparently not until the 20th century that the word was used to mean specifically “homosexual,” although it had earlier acquired sexual connotations. The word may have started to acquire associations of immorality as early as the 14th century, but had certainly acquired them by the 17th. By the late 17th century it had acquired the specific meaning of “addicted to pleasures and dissipations”, an extension of its primary meaning of “carefree” implying “uninhibited by moral constraints”. A gay woman was a prostitute, a gay man a womanizer, and a gay house a brothel. The use of gay to mean “homosexual” was often an extension of its application to prostitution: a gay boy was a young man or boy serving male clients. Similarly, a gay cat was a young male apprenticed to an older hobo, commonly exchanging sex and other services for protection and tutelage. The application to homosexuality was also an extension of the word’s sexualized connotation of “carefree and uninhibited”, which implied a willingness to disregard conventional or respectable sexual mores. Such usage, documented as early as the 1920s, was likely present before the 20th century, although it was initially more commonly used to imply heterosexually unconstrained lifestyles, as in the once-common phrase “gay Lothario.” A passage from Gertrude Stein’s Miss Furr & Miss Skeene (1922) is possibly the first traceable published use of the word to refer to a homosexual relationship. Bringing Up Baby (1938) was the first film to use the word gay in apparent reference to homosexuality. By the mid-20th century, gay was well established in reference to hedonistic and uninhibited lifestyles and its antonym straight, which had long had connotations of seriousness, respectability, and conventionality, had now acquired specific connotations of heterosexuality. In the case of gay, other connotations of frivolousness and showiness in dress (“gay apparel”) led to association with camp and effeminacy. This association no doubt helped the gradual narrowing in scope of the term towards its current dominant meaning, which was at first confined to subcultures. Gay was the preferred term since other terms, such as queer, were felt to be derogatory. Homosexual is perceived as excessively clinical, since the sexual orientation now commonly referred to as “homosexuality” was at that time a mental illness diagnosis in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). The sixties marked the transition in the predominant meaning of the word gay from that of “carefree” to the current “homosexual”.

1889 – Film star Maurice Chevalier (September 12, 1888 – January 1, 1972) is born in Paris. He was a French actor, cabaret singer and entertainer. He is perhaps best known for his signature songs, including “Louise”, “Mimi”, “Valentine”, and “Thank Heaven for Little Girls” and for his films, including The Love ParadeThe Big Pond and Love Me Tonight. His trademark attire was a boater hat, which he always wore on stage with a tuxedo. He was in a long term relationship with his valet, Felix Paquet.

Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was discovered living in Cambodia in April, 2002, and was deported to Thailand. He was released from a Vietnamese prison where he served a three year sentence for committing “obscene acts with children” involving girls aged 10 and 11, and returned to England in August, 2008.

2017 – Edie Windsor (June 20, 1929 – September 12, 2017) dies. She was an LGBT rightsactivist and a former technology manager at IBM. She was the lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court case United States v. Windsor, which successfully overturned Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act and was considered a landmark legal victory for the same-sex marriage movement in the United States. Windsor met Thea Spyer, a psychologist, in 1963 at Portofino, a restaurant in Greenwich Village.

In 1967, Spyer asked Windsor to marry, although it was not yet legal anywhere in the United States. In 1977, Spyer was diagnosed with progressive multiple sclerosis. The disease caused a gradual, but ever-increasing paralysis. Windsor used her early retirement to become a full-time caregiver for Spyer. Windsor and Spyer entered a domestic partnership in New York City in 1993. Registering on the first available day, they were issued certificate number eighty. Spyer suffered a heart attack in 2002 and was diagnosed with aortic stenosis. In 2007, her doctors told her she had less than a year to live. New York had not yet legalized same-sex marriage, so the couple married in TorontoCanada on May 22, 2007, with Canada’s first openly gay judge, Justice Harvey Brownstonepresiding. An announcement of their wedding was published in the New York Times. Spyer died from complications related to her heart condition on February 5, 2009.

On September 26, 2016, Windsor married Judith Kasen at New York City Hall. At the time of the wedding, Windsor was age 87 and Kasen was age 51. Her courage granted same-sex married couples federal recognition of our marriages and removed remaining state barriers to marriage equality. Edie led her fight with dignity and grace and those of us who are beneficiaries of her fight are forever touched by her and left with a little hole in our hearts. United States v. Windsor570 U.S. ___ (2013) (Docket No. 12-307), is a landmark civil rights case in which the United States Supreme Court held that restricting U.S. federal interpretation of “marriage” and “spouse” to apply only to opposite-sex unions, by Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), is unconstitutional under the Due Process Clauseof the Fifth Amendment. In the majority opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote: “The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and to injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity.”

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.

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

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.
