LGBTQ2 for October 10

Before the 1900s to The Suffragettes

1915 – Albert D. J. Cashier (December 25, 1843 – October 10, 1915) dies. Born Jennie Irene Hodgers, he was an Irish-born immigrant who served as a male soldier in the Union Army during the American Civil War. He lived as a man in Illinois, voted in elections and later claimed a veteran’s pension. On May 5, 1911, Cashier was moved to the Soldier and Sailors home in Quincy, Illinois. He lived there as a man until his mind deteriorated and was moved to the Watertown State Hospital for the Insane in March 1913.  Attendants at the Watertown discovered his female body when giving him a bath, at which point he was forced to wear a dress.

1936, Germany – The Reich Central Office for Combatting Abortion and Homosexuality forms. The main function was to gather data on homosexuals that led to arrests. Through 1945, an estimated 100,000 gay men were arrested and sent to concentration camps or prison, wearing the pink triangle. When the camps were liberated, they were not freed but sent to prison from the camps until the anti-gay Paragraph 175 was repealed in 1968. There is little data on the number of lesbians arrested though it is known that they had to wear the black triangle. German lesbians were usually sent to Spring of Life homes for impregnation. Jewish lesbians were sent to their deaths in the camps.

1994 – At the insistence of the U.S., the United Nations suspends the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) from observer status because of allegations that ILGA’s members include groups that promote pedophilia.

Blogger Nina recalls: Of the over 100 organizations, I think 26 were pedophilia or supportive – and in Vancouver this would lead to Cindy Filipenko being fired as editor of Xtra West for calling Pink Triangle Press, the publisher out for supporting. ILGA was the first nongovernment organization to have observer status – and pedophiles are not LGBTQ2 – who are adults with consenting adults. Pedophiles are criminals – which the UN continues to have unresolved issues of aid workers exploiting children, who were often child soldiers.
