LGBTQ2 for August 28

Before the 1900s to The Suffragettes

430, Africa – St. Augustine of Hippo (November 13, 354 – August 28, 430) dies. He was an early Christian theologian and philosopher whose writings influenced the development of Western Christianity and Western philosophy. He was the bishop of Hippo Regius in north Africa and is viewed as one of the most important Fathers in Western Christianity for his writings in the Patristic Era. Among his most important works are The City of God and ConfessionsSome of his writings in “Confessions” reveal his attraction to the same-sex.

1603, Italy – During a trial in which Italian painter Caravaggio (September 29, 1571 – July 18, 1610) was charged with libel when Baglione testified that he had a male lover. Baglione’s painting of “Divine Love” has also been seen as a visual accusation of sodomy against Caravaggio. Caravaggio was an Italian painter active in RomeNaplesMalta, and Sicily between 1592 (1595?) and 1610. His paintings combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting, and they had a formative influence on Baroque painting. Since the 1970s both art scholars and historians have debated the inferences of homoeroticism in Caravaggio’s works as a way to better understand the man.

1814, Ireland – Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (August 28, 1814 – February 7,1873) is born in Dublin. He wrote vampire fiction, predating Bram Stoker‘s Dracula (1897) by 26 years. His best known, written 25 years before “Dracula,” is “Carmilla,” a story of a lesbian vampire who preyed on young women,

1825, Germany – Karl Heinrich Ulrichs (28 August 1825 – 14 July 1895), German jurist and activist, was born in Aurich, Germany. He would become one of the earliest activists in Germany to attempt to abolish the German sodomy law. In 1862, Ulrichs, a lawyer, theologian, and pioneer of the modern gay rights movement, described his own homosexuality as anima muliebris virili corpore inclusa – a female psyche confined in a male body. “I may have a beard, and manly limbs and body,” he writes in Latin “yet confined by these, I am and remain a woman”. Ulrichs’ fusion of gay and gender identities dominates discussion of transsexualism for almost a century, and it remains a widespread popular belief that trans women are gay men dressed in female clothes.

1833

By declaration of the British Parliament, slavery was banned throughout the British Empire.

1850

Wagner’s opera, “Lohengrin,” was performed for the first time.

1920, Germany -The first post-WWI general membership meeting of the Scientific Humanitarian Committee passes a motion to establish connections with homosexual organizations in other countries.

1921 – Nancy Kulp (August 28, 1921 – February 3, 1991), famous for her role as Miss Jane Hathaway on “The Beverly Hillbillies,” is born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. After the show’s cancellation, Kulp ran for state office in Pennsylvania; she lost the election. Kulp lived her life completely in the closet. Her lesbianism was not publicly acknowledged until after her death from cancer in Palm Springs on February 3, 1991. After her retirement from acting and teaching, she moved first to a farm in Connecticut and later to Palm Springs, California, where she became involved in several charity organizations, including the Humane Society of the Desert, the Desert Theatre League, and United Cerebral Palsy.[6] Later in life, Kulp indicated to author Boze Hadleigh in a 1989 interview that she was a lesbian. “As long as you reproduce my reply word for word, and the question, you may use it…. I’d appreciate it if you’d let me phrase the question. There is more than one way. Here’s how I would ask it: ‘Do you think that opposites attract?’ My own reply would be that I’m the other sort – I find that birds of a feather flock together. That answers your question.”

1950s The Decade the public learned heterosexual women wanted sex

1957 – Gender-bending lesbian and Jewish folk/punk singer/songwriter Phranc (August 28, 1957) is born. Phranc is the stage name of Susan Gottlieb. Phranc began her performing career in the late 1970s and early 1980s punk scene in Los Angeles. She had a bleached blonde crewcut and wore male attire, creating an androgynous persona for her first band, Nervous Gender, which formed in 1978. She lives in Santa Monica, California with her partner and children.

August 28, 1957

U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina began a 24-hour and 18-minute non-stop filibuster – the longest ever by a lone senator – in an unsuccessful attempt to derail passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1957.

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

1963 – The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom takes place. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. gives his “I have a Dream” speech. Openly gay Bayard Rustin (March 17, 1912 – August 24, 1987) was the march’s prime organizer, gathered at the Lincoln Memorial to hear songs by Mahalia Jackson, Joan Baez and Peter, Paul & Mary. The climax of the event was the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. giving what became known as his “I have a dream” speech.

1965 – Keith Boykin (born August 28, 1965), African-American activist and author, is born in St. Louis, Missouri. As if a forecast of his future activism, his birthday and Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I have a Dream Speech” share the same day. Working in the Clinton Administration, Boykin held the positions of Special Assistant to the President and Director of News Analysis, and Director of Specialty Media. In 2001, Boykin founded the National Black Justice Coalition, the largest African-American GLBT rights organization in America. Boykin has authored several books: “One More River to Cross: Black and Gay in America” (1996), “Respecting the Soul: Daily Reflections for Black Lesbians and Gays” (1999), and “Beyond the Down Low: Sex, Lies, and Denial in Black America” (2005).

Feminist, Gay Liberation and Lesbian Separatists: Civil Rights

1970 – Police in New York force their way into The Haven, a private, unisex non-alcohol gay club. It was the third of four raids on the club that would take place in a two-week period. Six were arrested, detained overnight, and released the next morning. Between these and other raids, over 300 homosexuals were arrested during the month of August. There were also cases of threats and harassment. New York City was sued for false arrest and harassment in three of the cases. All other cases were dismissed.

1970 – The Gay Liberation Front, Radicalesbians, and other gay activists hold a protest at NYU after the campus administration cancelled a series of dances at NYU’s Weinstein Hall when they learned a gay organization was sponsoring them. After a discussion with the dean they were allowed to use the property. The dean had been called by campus police who arrived to break up the demonstration.

On August 28th, 1971, approximately one hundred individuals from Toronto Gay Action, the Montreal Front de Libération Homosexuel, the Homophile Association at the University of Toronto, and the Gays of Ottawa gathered on Parliament Hill to protest the ongoing discrimination of homosexuals in Canada. A similar demonstration was held on the same day in Vancouver for those who could not travel to Ottawa. 

We Demand is a 13-page document including 10 demands for public policy changes to end all remaining forms of state sanctioned discrimination against homosexuals in Canada written by several queer individuals from the aforementioned organisations. As the letter states, “[i]n our daily lives we are still confronted with discrimination, police harassment, exploitation, and pressures to conform which deny our sexuality. That prejudice against homosexual people pervades society is, in no small way, attributable to practices of the Federal government.” A critique of the 1969 amendment, it addressed how the limitation to male adults above the age of 21 engaging in anal sex in the privacy of their own home—many of whom, we must add, did not enjoy this privilege of privacy—did not address the myriad ways in which homosexual men and women continued to face both implicit and violent forms of discrimination in our society.
