LGBTQ2 for February 12

BCE to The Suffragettes

1847, Germany – Philipp Friedrich Alexander, Prince of Eulenburg and Hertefeld, Count von Sandels (12 February 1847 – 17 September 1921) was a diplomat and composer of Imperial Germany who achieved considerable influence as the closest friend of Wilhelm II. He was the central member of the so-called Liebenberg Circle, a group of artistically minded German aristocrats within Wilhelm’s entourage. Eulenburg played an important role in the rise of Bernhard von Bülow, but fell from power in 1907 due to the Harden–Eulenburg affair when he was accused of homosexuality.

02-12-1902 – 07-16-1967   

Bet van Beeren – Born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She was a flamboyant bar owner in Amsterdam. She named the bar Café ’t Mandje (The Basket Café) because her mother brought the food in every day in a basket. Van Beeren was openly lesbian and her bar catered to lesbians and gays, as long as there was no kissing, which would have violated the vice laws and caused her to lose her liquor license. Her clientele included artists, intellectuals, pimps, prostitutes, and sailors. She often dressed in a sailor suit or leathers, and entertained her customers with singing and dancing. Making a lot of money from the pub, she became known for her charity works, helping the poor, children, and the elderly. During WWII, she allowed the bar to be used as an arms depot for the Dutch resistance. Her bar was off limits to Nazi troops because it was considered a red-light establishment. She hung neckties and souvenirs from patrons from the ceiling and held dances on Queen’s Day, where same-sex couples could dance together. Van Beeren died of liver disease (it was told that she drank up to 40 bottles of beer a day) in July 1967. She was laid in state on the billiard table of the bar for several days before being buried. Greet, van Beeren’s younger sister continued to run the pub until 1982. Shortly before Greet died, she sold it to her niece, Diana van Laar. Van Laar completed a renovation of the pub and reopened it on April 2, 2008. In 2017, a bridge was renamed on the pub’s 90th anniversary to honor van Beeren, representing her building of bridges between diverse groups.

He was also a director and designer of operas and a former senator (1994-2001) for the Italian centre-right “Froza Italia” party. In 1996 he came out as gay.

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.

LGBTQ2 for February 3

BCE to The Suffragettes

1821 – The first female physician in the U.S., Elizabeth Blackwell (3 February 1821 – 31 May 1910)was born near Bristol, England. As a girl, her family moved to New York State. She was awarded her MD by the Medical Institute of Geneva, New York, in 1849. She then established a hospital in New York City run by an all-female staff. She was also active in training women to be nurses for service in the U.S. Civil War. She was the first woman to graduate from medical school, a pioneer in promoting the education of women in medicine in the United States, and a social and moral reformer in both the United States and in the United Kingdom. Her sisterEmilywas the third woman in the US to get a medical degree. None of the five Blackwell sisters ever married. Since 1949, the American Medical Women’s Association has awarded the Elizabeth Blackwell Medal annually to a woman physician. The Judy Chicago artwork The Dinner Party features a place setting for Elizabeth Blackwell.

1874 – Lesbian writer Gertrude Stein (February 3, 1874 – July 27, 1946) was born in Allegheny, Pennsylvania. She was an American novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector. Multifaceted, complicated, and impenetrable, Stein was like the cubist paintings she admired so much. She once summed up her long life with partner Alice B. Toklas  (April 30, 1877 – March 7, 1967) by writing “I love my love because she is peculiar.”

 Stein moved to Paris in 1903, making France her home for the remainder of her life. A literary innovator and pioneer of Modernist literature, Stein’s work broke with the narrative, linear, and temporal conventions of the 19th-century. She was also known as a collector of Modernist art. In 1933, Stein published a kind of memoir of her Paris years, The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, written in the voice of Toklas, her life partner. The book became a literary bestseller and brought Stein into the light of mainstream attention. She met Alice B. Toklas on September 8, 1907, on Toklas’s first day in Paris, at Michael and Sarah Stein’s apartment. In the 1980’s, a cabinet in the Yale University Beinecke Library, which had been locked for an indeterminate number of 

gertrude-stein-alice-b-toklas

years was opened and found to contain some 300 love letters written by Stein and Toklas. Stein is the author of one of the earliest coming out stories (published in 1950 as Things as They Are), written in 1903 and suppressed by the author. Her essay Miss Furr and Miss Skeene (written 1909-1911, published 1922) is one of the first homosexual revelation stories to be published. The work contains the word “gay” over one hundred times, perhaps the first published use of the word “gay” in reference to same-sex relationships, uniformed readers missed the homosexual content.

1913 – The 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, granting Congress the authority to collect income taxes.

1938 – Jonathan Ned Katz (born Feb. 3, 1938) is an American historian of human sexuality who has written about same-sex attraction and changes in the social organization of sexuality over time.

His works include The Invention of Heterosexuality,the Gay/Lesbian Almanac and Gay American History: Lesbians and Gay Men in the U.S.A.

On March 11, 1992, after having seen a movie at a theater in the Latin area below Castro, he was beaten by two thugs with baseball bats. He died from his injuries on April 21, 1992. Although he was not transgender, and it is believed that his killers were not aware that he was gay, he is often included in several transgender memorial lists.

LGBTQ2 blogger Nina Notes: the killers would not care if their victim was gay or trans, but would probably enjoy raping a lesbian more than other women. And that there is an issue within LGBT over which category shows the difference between, eh.

“As an Indigenous Two-Spirited gay person living with learning disabilities, it’s always been crucial to me to share who I am and be my authentic self in every facet of my life, including my professional life,” says Granger. “Growing up and even now, I rarely see myself represented in media, in educational circles, or in management roles. For me, it’s so important for our younger generations to see themselves in those areas and in others.

“Young people need to see that they can be successful, no matter who they are or what equity seeking group they may belong to. To be recognized for my passion, my dedication and support for our equity-seeking communities, and for my overall contribution to Cambrian is an absolute honour.”

The Emerging Leader Award recognizes administrators who are newer to management (approximately five years or less) and who are positively influencing the college through their leadership.

1973 –

W.H. Auden (21 February 1907 – 29 September 1973) dies in Vienna at age 63. He was an English-American poet. Auden’s poetry was noted for its stylistic and technical achievement, its engagement with politics, morals, love, and religion, and its variety in tone, form and content.  From around 1927 to 1939 Auden and Christopher Isherwood maintained a lasting but intermittent sexual friendship while both had briefer but more intense relations with other men. In 1939 Auden fell in love with Chester Kallman and regarded their relation as a marriage; this ended in 1941 when Kallman refused to accept the faithful relation that Auden demanded, but the two maintained their friendship, and from 1947 until Auden’s death they lived in the same house or apartment in a non-sexual relation, often collaborating on opera libretti such as The Rake’s Progress, for music by Igor Stravinsky.

Given that lesbians and gay men were oppressed by heterosexual owing to our not having procreative sex owing to our same sex/same gender respective sexualities.

which are no longer in the diagnostic manual and are a protected characteristic under most western nation law

the legal argument that the non procreative sexof Lesbians and Gay men sexuality is a hate crime or bigotry against persons with a body dysmorphia diagnosis of transgender, is foolish on the face of the claim

https://www.rebelnews.com/at_least_one_incarcerated_california_woman_pregnant_by_male_inmate_identifying_as_trans_womens_group_saysAt least one incarcerated California woman pregnant by male inmate identifying as trans, women’s group says – Rebel NewsThe fearless source of news, opinion, and activism that you won’t find anywhere else.www.rebelnews.com

it was heterosexual men who coined the phrases “homophobia” and “transphobia” to make their having murdered, raped and assaulted individually and in groups of “heterosexual” men vs gay men and transwomen

there is no word other than assault, rape and murder when hetero men do this to heterosexual women, bisexual women and lesbians

Pansexuals and nonbinary are new identities which have not been illegal by name and definition in law

so for anyone to claim it is “transphobic” or “pan” or “bi” phobic for a heterosexual, bisexual or a gay man and lesbians to say no to a date with a bi, pan or trans person is to very much use the word incorrectly

gay men do not have to date gay men who do drag, which is bashing on women, nor transwomen who do not appeal as males nor transmen as penis transplants, which is proven medically possible are not done and objects are not body parts.

and for bisexual women and lesbians, in particular, to be told we do not have a no to a date, with a person who is clothes away from a heterosexual, is not only denying our human right to choose who we have sexual relationships with, to name call and insist we ignore our own senses is gaslighting.

post op transwomen may be sufficient for heterosexual or bisexual males, but bisexual women and lesbians are aware of what vaginas are

sexual activity is not interchangable and nonprocreative sex between the same genders and procreative sex between the two genders in a sexually reproducing species are the only two options

anyone who avoids informed consent and cannot accept a no to a date request, and responds with the name calling and sluring, is admitting that no one should date them, regardless of identity.

there is a right to a no individually and by demographic definition

which may not be “self identified” into by those who lack the shared characteristics

words have specific meaning, which can not include the opposite

biology terms, legal words and for human rights to matter, not words that allow women to positively self identify. language is intended to be specific and commonly understood.

meanwhile in the real world, and not academics, where an idea that may not be questioned by peers or at all, may be dismissed without consideration.

Just as atheists do not have to practise religions rejected, no one has to accept an idea that explains nothing, predicts nothing and cannot be tested, and also does not explain any better than what is more projection than substance.

on ebay – “Miss Elvis Presley” the most obscure and rarest Books – set of 21. hand illustrated 1950s vernacular gay chap books!!

The Sexual Presley Revolution

Elvis the Pelvis shook up America and the world in many ways – rarely credited for making more people want to learn English to know what he was saying, he continues to be a rebel that resonates – not only because of performing traditionally black music – but black women’s songs – country done rnb, rnb done country and delivered with a gospel fervour of purity in conflict with sexual gratification – saturday night just got paid and wanna get laid tunes.

Many of his early fans assumed he was gay owing to the clothing he wore and the stage make up. Mexico even had a riot over King Creole having a homosexual on screen.

a few years back the Elvis Information Network ran this:

“Miss Elvis Presley” the most obscure and rarest Books – set of 21.

“Miss Elvis Presley” – the world’s rarest Elvis book was (and still is) unique and controversial: The Elvis book world features several thousand titles. As to the rarest Elvis books published, normally titles such as Elvis Presley Ein Lebensbild (A Life Story) by Peter DeVeechi, The Name Code: The God of Elvis (Christopher Byrnes Matthews), Elvis Presley Dead or Alive? (Will Jima), Elvis The T.V. Years (I.R. Bailye) and Elvis UFO Connection (Richard Daniel) are usually mentioned.However, there is one title that few fans will have ever heard of, a one of a kind publication which lays claim to being the rarest Elvis book of all and was released as part of a set of 21 hand illustrated 1950s vernacular gay chap books!! It is: Miss Elvis Presley.Due to its (especially in the 1950s) scandalous subject matter the 21 book set received very little, if any, media coverage and more likely was only known about in underground gay circles.The little known set of 21 books was listed on ebay last year with an asking price of US$45,000.! Not surprisingly it did not sell. The set is still available to buy directly from: Between the Covers Rare Books, Inc ABAA

This is the text accompanying the set’s sales listing:

1958. Softcover. Oblong 24mos. Measuring 5″ x 8″. Illustrated throughout with original ink and watercolor drawings. Each 8pp. Stiff paper wrappers with index cards used for pages and bound with staples or brads. Overall near fine with some wear at the corners and light reading creases to the front wrap along the spine. An elaborate and vibrant collection of 21 gay cartoon books that appear to have been illustrated by one person. Each features very graphic and explicit tales of boy meets boy – and sometimes another boy (and in a few cases a werewolf, or Elvis Presley, or Dick Tracy and well, you get the idea). Each is lovingly composed of seven or eight index cards that have been illustrated on the unlined side and bound into hand decorated stiff wraps, some with applied elements. Though undated, the fashions, furniture, and cultural references suggest the late 1950s with titles such as *Miss Elvis Presley*, *I Was a Teen-Age Werewolf*, and *Space Girl* starring Flash Gordon. A unique collection of handcrafted drawings revealing the unvarnished exploits (or at least the fantasies) of a sexually active gay man of the 1950s with more than a dose of figurative and literal tongue-in-cheek humor and pun filled titles, such as *Ima Hoor Presents: Lover, a Sexascope Production*. The optimistic portrayal of certain physical attributes of the characters certainly parallel or reflect the similarly endowed characters of Tom of Finland, or might possibly even predate them slightly. Due to the singular and clandestine nature of the books, this collection would be almost impossible to recreate today. Originally held for many years by an art dealer who never encountered anything like it, the collection has been in the possession of only one other private owner since. Housed in a specially made slipcase.

The obscure release was consistent with an undercurrent in the Elvis story that he was gay or bi-sexual. Stories about his wearing of mascara and friendship Hollywood with known gay actor, Nick Adams, appeared in several 1950s magazines. (Book News, Source: EIN)
