BCE to The Suffragettes

03-06-1475 – 02-18-1564 Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti – commonly known as Michelangelo. Born in Caprese Michelangelo, Italy. He was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect, 

poet, and engineer of the High Renaissance who exerted unparalleled influence on Western art. Considered the greatest living artist of his lifetime, he has since been held as one of the greatest artists of all time. Two of his best-known works, the “Pietà” and “David” were sculpted before he turned thirty. Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel starting in 1508 and ending in 1512. He was the first Western artist whose biography was published while he was still alive. It’s impossible to know for certain whether he had physical relationships but the nature of his sexuality is made apparent in his poetry. He wrote over three hundred sonnets and madrigals. The longest sequence was written to Tommaso dei Cavalieri, who was 23 years old when Michelangelo met him in 1532, at the age of 57. These make up the first large sequence of poems in any modern tongue addressed by one man to another, predating Shakespeare’s sonnets to young men by fifty years.

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.
