LGBTQ2 for October 24

Before the 1900s to The Suffragettes

44 B.C.: According to Quist, today marks the first day in recorded history with mention of same-sex marriage. Quist notes, “Cicero insults Mark Anthony for being promiscuous in his youth until Curio ‘established you in a fixed and stable marriage, as if he had given you a stola.’ A stola is the traditional garment of a married Roman woman. ‘Although Cicero’s sexual implications are clear, the point of the passage is to cast Anthony in the submissive role in the relationship and to impugn his manhood in various ways; there is no reason to think that actual marriage rites were performed.'”

1926: The New York Times printed a book review of Dr. Joseph Collins’ “The Doctor Looks at Love and Life.” In this text Collins disputed the claim that same-sex love is pathological and famously claimed that “genuine homosexuality is not a vice, it is an endowment.”

1893 – Jean Acker (October 23, 1893 – August 16, 1978) was an American film actress with a career dating from the silent film era through the 1950s. She was perhaps best known as the estranged wife of silent film star Rudolph Valentino(May 6, 1895 – August 23, 1926). Acker had an affair with the actress Alla Nazimova(June 3, 1879 – July 13, 1945). Nazimova included Acker in what was dubbed the “Sewing circles“, a group of actresses who were forced to conceal the fact that they were lesbian or bisexual, thus living secret lives. Another of her female lovers wasactress Grace Darmond(November 20, 1893 – October 8, 1963)with whom she was involved during her relationship with Valentino.

1906, France – Albrto Santos-Dumot  (20 July 1873 – 23 July 1932) makes the first public European flight of an airplane in Europe. His plane, the Olseau de prole, (bird of prey)is considered the first to take off, fly, and land without the use of other assistance. Later that year he flew his fixed-wing aircraft, the 14B, to win the Deutsch-Achdeacon Prize. Three years before the Wright brothers, the gay Brazilian aviation pioneer becomes the first person to fly more than 80 feet under official observation. Seriously ill and said to be depressed over his multiple sclerosis and the use of aircraft in warfare, he hanged himself on July 23, 1932.

1907, Germany – The Molte v. Harden trial begins in Germany. Journalist Maximillian Harden accused General Kuno Count von Moltke (1847–1923) of being in a homosexual relationship. Moltke filed a civil suit, and though Harden was acquitted, the verdict was later overturned and he was found guilty. Moltke was an adjutant to Kaiser Wilhelm II and military commander of Berlin. The homosexual scandal known as the Harden-Eulenburg Affair rocked the Kaiser’s entourage. Moltke was forced to leave the military service.

1937 – Mattachine Society founder Harry Hay’s (April 7, 1912 – October 24, 2002)  former lover Stanley Haggart wrote to him after marrying a woman in an attempt to change his sexuality. “To think it had to take a marriage with its wedding night experiences to show me where my real affinity lies. Every cell in me screamed out in protest at my desecration of my body. At that time I knew that I belonged to you and you to me.” The two men were eventually reunited in 1938, but Harry had become increasingly active in meetings of the Communist Party and the two men were politically incompatible. Hay “abandoned” Stanley, whose homely domestic ideals he regarded as unrealistic, and Stanley in due course made a new life-match.

Truxx and another bar, Le Mystique, were simultaneously raided on Oct. 22, 1977. Fifty police officers wearing bulletproof vests and carrying machine guns conducted the raid, charging 146 patrons as “found-ins” and Truxx’s owner as a keeper of a common bawdy house. Detainees were held for eight hours in crowded cells, subjected to venereal disease testing and denied the opportunity to call their lawyers. Community response to the raid was quick. The night after the raid, two thousand people blocked a downtown intersection in protest. When police tried to break it up by driving their motorcycles into the crowd and clubbing people, protesters threw beer bottles. Hundreds turned up at a public forum, organized by l’Association pour les droits des gaies du Québec, and a defence committee for the found-ins was formed. It took five years for the charges against the Truxx patrons to be dropped.

It is okay to be gay or lesbian and not bisexual, and it is okay to not date transpersons and it is okay to be bisexual or trans; it is okay to be heterosexual

so stop expecting others to go against their orientation:

no one has a right to your body, especially when you have no interest in theirs

from the article : It’s kind of a privilege that anybody gets to share your body in the first place, so as long as everything’s safe and consenting, put your pleasure first.

trans are bashing lesbians rather than the heteros who are the problem –

lesbians were not against trans rights, just disinterested in dating trans, and are being name called and excluded from LGBT… so the problem is NOT lesbians
