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.

BCE to The Suffragettes

March 2, 1807

An act to “prohibit the importation of slaves into any port or place within the jurisdiction of the United States… from any foreign kingdom, place, or country” was passed by the U.S. Congress.

03-02-1872 – 09-09-1967 Geraldine Morgan Thompson – Born in New York City, New York. She was an American social reform pioneer who became known as the “First Lady of New Jersey” because of her philanthropic and social service activities. Her activism was aimed at female prison reform, public health, and juvenile justice. She was the first female New Jersey delegate to a Republican National Convention in 1923. Thompson was also a lifelong friend of Eleanor Roosevelt. She had a forty year relationship with Miriam Van Waters, a social worker who served as superintendent of the Massachusetts Reformatory for Women at Framingham. Both women had to remain closeted in order to maintain their positions. In 1949, in fear of being outed, Van Waters destroyed all the romantic letters she had received from Thompson.

03-02-1894 — 03-08-1964   Renata Borgatti – Born in Italy, place unknown. She was an Italian classical musician, performing in Europe and the 

United States. In the early 1900s, she settled on the island of Capri, where as a lesbian, she was more accepted. Borgatti had an affair with Faith Mackenzie, whose husband Compton Mackenzie wrote of the island’s lesbian residents in the 1928, titled Extraordinary Women. Borgatti also had an affair with Romain Brooks. When that relationship failed, she began an affair with Winnaretta Singer, heiress to the Singer sewing machine fortune. In her later years, she taught music. In 1964, she died in Rome of leukemia. (drawing by John Singer Sargent in 1921)

Not surprising then that his English version of “Three Penny Opera” ran for years on Broadway. Blitzstein was openly gay.

03-02-1930 Pat Arrowsmith – Place of birth unknown. She is a British author and peace campaigner. She was the first to come out in Who’s Who in 1977. She is a co-founder of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. She has served eleven prison sentences for her political activ

ities. In 1979, Arrowsmith married, in order to fulfill her father’s condition for inheriting his money after his death. The marriage was annulled on the same day. “My father probably thought that if I had to get married, I would dismiss all notions of leading a gay lifestyle,” she says. “I discovered after he died, from his diaries, that he knew I was gay, as he wrote, ‘She’s not even ashamed of it.’” Arrowsmith donated her inheritance to various political causes.

Our Daily Elvis

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.

1982

– Wisconsin Governor Lee Dreyfus [Republican] signs the bill which added the prohibition against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to the state’s civil rights statute, making Wisconsin the first state in the country to do so!

.

After a 15-year movement, Wisconsin became the first state to pass legislation to protect LGBTQ people from workplace and housing discrimination. In 1967, black lawyer, legislator and activist Lloyd Barbee introduced the first bill to decriminalize homosexuality. Barbee’s fellow members of the Wisconsin State Assembly had nicknamed him “the outrageous Mr. Barbee” because he often promoted radical legislation that favored women’s rights, drug legalization, prison reform and more. Perhaps his views were too progressive for the assembly, because they vetoed his proposals in 1967 and again in 1977. Barbee left his position that same year.

Shortly after, renowned singer Anita Bryant allied with Christian fundamentalists to spread anti-gay rhetoric across the United States. The homophobic campaign motivated Leon Rouse, a Milwaukee college student, to find a way to unify religion with gay rights. Rouse invited Christian and Jewish religious leaders to the board of a new human rights committee. He argued that all religious denominations shared a responsibility to protect marginalized individuals and re-introduced one of Barbee’s failed bills: a bill which would prevent employers from making employment decisions on the basis of sexual orientation. The members agreed with Rouse’s message of equality and urged their religious constituents to support the anti-discrimination bill, lobbied their political representatives and traveled to Wisconsin’s capital to testify in the bill’s favor. David Clarenbach, a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly, campaigned on the bill’s behalf when he heard Rouse’s platform. The bill finally passed in 1982. It led to another bill which legalized homosexual sexual relations a year later, which empowered legislator Clarenbach to come out as gay after he left political office. The 1982 bill was a small but significant step in the road to equality in the state. Its incremental but steady progress reminds us not to give up hope, even when our accomplishments initially appear small.

1983

The Rhode Island Supreme Court rules that the enactment of a comprehensive sexual assault reform law did not impliedly repeal the crime against nature law.

Official died of an accidental choking, but the police report suggested his use of drugs and alcohol contributed to the death: Tennessee Williams at the age of 71 in his suite at the Hotel Elysee in New York City. Thomas Lanier “Tennessee” Williams III (March 26, 1911 – February 25, 1983) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright whose works include A Streetcar Named Desireand Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.Williams and his partner, actor Frank Marlo (1922-1963), were together for more than 10 years. Their relationship ended when Marlo died of cancer in 1963. Although Williams enjoyed his success, his life was fraught with alcoholism and several love affairs. He struggled to resolve his homosexuality with his strict upbringing, and the conflict between guilt and desire became a theme of his controversial plays. Some critics of Williams point out he did not come out as gay until late in his life, and his homosexual characters often die in his work. Despite the discord that has always surrounded Williams’s life, he remains a man who turned his painful upbringing into fine art. His death is the ultimate symbol of his duality. He died of asphyxiation in the presidential suite of the fine hotel where he had been living, likely due to drugs. Yet every aspiring young actor still wishes to act in a Tennessee Williams play as their rite of passage into “serious” theater. The man from a quiet southern town is forever remembered as the “poet of lost souls” for those in need of hope

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. (Top photo shows van Beeren in sailor suit; Bottom photo is Café ‘t Mandje by FaceMePLS)

February 12, 1909

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was founded “to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination.” The date was chosen to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the birth of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, who emancipated enslaved African Americans.

02-12-1923 Franco Zeffirelli – Born in Florence, Italy. He was an Italian director and 

producer of films and television. Known principally for his 1968 version of Romeo and Juliet, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. His 1967 version of The Taming of the Shrew remains the best-known film adaptation of the play. 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. He considered himself “homosexual” rather than gay, he felt the term “gay” was less elegant.

LGBTQ2 for February 9



BCE to The Suffragettes

1874 – Amy Lowell American lesbian poet was born in Brookline. Massachusetts. A militant literary leader she thumbed her nose at the Boston Brahmans who raised her and outed herself. Her lover was actress Ada Dwyer Russell whom she called “Peter.” Russell is reputed to be the subject of Lowell’s more erotic works, most notably the love poems contained in ‘Two Speak Together’, a subsection of Pictures of the Floating World.  The two women traveled to England together, where Lowell met Ezra Pound, who at once became a major influence and a major critic of her work. Pound considered Lowell’s embrace of Imagism to be a kind of hi-jacking of the movement, and among his friends he referred to her as the “hippo-poetess”, because of her large body size. Lowell has been linked romantically to writer Mercedes de Acosta, but the only evidence of any contact between them is a brief correspondence about a planned memorial for Duse. Lowell was a short but imposing figure who kept her hair in a bun and wore a pince-nez.

1923 – Brendan Behan is born.  Behan was an Irish poet, short story writer, novelist, and playwright who wrote in both English and Irish.  Born in Dublin into a republican family, he became a member of the IRA’s youth organisation Fianna Éireann at the age of fourteen. However, there was also a strong emphasis on Irish history and culture in the home, which meant he was steeped in literature and patriotic ballads from a tender age. Behan eventually joined the IRA at sixteen, which led to him serving time in a borstal youth prison in the United Kingdom (see “The Borstal Boy” ) and was also imprisoned in Republic of Ireland. During this time, he took it upon himself to study and he became a fluent speaker of the Irish language. Subsequently released from prison as part of a general amnesty given by the Fianna Fáil government in 1946, Behan moved between homes in Dublin, Kerry and Connemara and also resided in Paris for a period.   Behan had married Beatrice Salkeld  in 1955. A daughter, Blanaid, was born in 1963.  This however, was not enough to bring Behan back from his alcoholic abyss. By early March 1964, the end was in sight. Collapsing at the Harbour Lights bar, he was transferred to the Meath Hospital in central Dublin, where he died, aged 41. The family of Brendan Behan claim that he was bisexual all of his life, but he kept it quiet for his families sake.

1927 – Three plays with same-sex love content are raided and the casts and producers are arrested. The plays are “The Captive,” a controversial play about two women with an “abnormal relationship”; “Sex” starring Mae West; and “The Virgin Man.” No one was prosecuted but the plays closed days later. The Captive, by Édouard Bourdet, was a three-act melodrama was among the first Broadway plays to deal with lesbianism and caused a scandal in New York City. The play was shut down after 160 performances and prompted the adoption of a state law dealing with obscenity; Sex by Jane Mast was  “obscene, indecent, immoral, and impure” and put Mae Westin prison for 10 days; The Virgin Man was a 1956 Argentine comedy film directed by Román Viñoly Barreto and starring Luis Sandrini. Cast.

02-09-1938 – 12-31-2012 Jovette Marchessault – Born in Montreal, Quebec.

In 1980, with the publication of Triptyque lesbien, she risked her developing career by becoming the first Quebec novelist to declare her lesbianism. A portrait of Marchessault, by artist Robert Laliberté, is on exhibit in the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives’ National Portrait Collection, in honor of her role as a builder of LGBT culture and history in Canada.

Walker dislikes labels, but acknowledges having been in love with both men and women and, in a 1996 Essence article, described herself as bisexual. . In the mid-1990s, she was involved in a romantic relationship with singer Tracy Chapman. “It was delicious and lovely and wonderful and I totally enjoyed it and I was completely in love with her but it was nobody’s business but ours.” Walker wrote, “At one point I learned Transcendental Meditation. This was 30-something years ago. It took me back to the way that I naturally was as a child growing up way in the country, rarely seeing people. I was in that state on oneness with creation and it was as if I didn’t exist except as a part of everything.”

According to scholar Larry Gross, in his book Up from Invisibility: Lesbians, Gay Men, and the Media in America, the episode also opened the door for other programs such as Soap, later in the 1970s, and Dynasty, in the 1980s, that included recurring gay characters in their casts. And Gross further observes that this progress ultimately laid the groundwork for the programs with gay characters-some of them in leading roles-that are appearing on the small screen today.

Feminist, Gay Liberation and Lesbian Separatists: Civil Rights

1970 – Sometime in the 1940s a sign appeared over the popular Los Angeles bar at Barney’s Beanery that read “FAGOTS – STAY OUT.” The message so offended the locals that Life magazine did an article on opposition to the sign in 1964, which included a photograph of the owner steadfastly holding on to it. The owner died in 1968, and efforts continued to have the sign removed. The Gay Liberation Front organized a zap of the restaurant on February 7, 1970 to push for its removal. The sign disappeared that day. The sign was put up and taken down several times over the next 14 years, but the practice ended in December, 1984, days after the city voted itself into existence. The then-mayor, Valerie Terrigno, the entire city council and gay-rights activists marched into Barney’s and relieved the wall of the offending sign. It was held by Morris Kight for many years and now rests in the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives.

1991 – The first lesbian kiss on television occurs between Amanda Donohoe and Michelle Green on L.A. Law. The “lesbian kiss episode” is a subgenre of the media portrayal of lesbianismin American television media, created in the 1990s. Beginning in 1991 with a kiss on the American L.A. Law series’ episode “He’s a Crowd” between C.J. Lamb and Abby Perkins,  David E. Kelley, who wrote the episode in question, went on to use the trope in at least two of his other shows.

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 January 29

BCE to The Suffragettes

1749, Denmark – Christian VII (29 January 1749 – 13 March 1808)isborn in Copenhagen. He was rejected by his father as being effeminate. When he became king at 16, the nobles plied him with sex mates to curry favor. He married to produce an heir, but his queen became the mistress of the court doctor who then took control of the government and assigned Christian a lover. The lover locked him in a room, Christian was freed by the nobles, the queen was divorced, and the doctor and the lover were drawn and quartered. 

1858 – Edward Irenaeus Prime-Stevenson (January 29, 1858 – July 23, 1942) is born. He was an American author who used the pseudonym of Xavier Mayne. In 1908, he published the first American defense of homosexuality entitled The Intersexes: A History of Similisexualism as a Problem in Social Life.

01-29-1927 – 04-06-2013   Don Shirley – Born in Pensacola, Florida. He was 

an American classical and jazz pianist, as well as a composer. Shirley recorded many albums for Cadence Record Company during the 1950s and 1960s, experimenting with jazz with a classical influence. His compositions included organ symphonies, piano and cello concertos, a one act opera, and string quartets. During the 1960s, Shirley went on tour, some venues were in Southern states. He hired New York-nightclub bouncer Tony “Lip” Vallelonga as his driver and bodyguard. Their story has been made into the 2018 film Green Book. The screenplay was written by Tony Vallelonga’s son, 

Nick, Peter Farrelly, and Brian Currie. Nick used letters written by his father and Shirley that were sent to “Lips” wife, Dolores. The scene in the film depicting Shirley being handcuffed to a YMCA shower by a cop that discovered him having sex with another man is factual. In the 1980s, Nick told Shirley and his father that he wanted to make a movie about their experiences together. Shirley told him to do it but to wait until after he was no longer around. “You should put in everything your father told you, and everything I told you,” Nick recalls Shirley telling him. “You tell exactly the truth, but you’re going to wait until I pass.” Nick believes that Shirley wanted him to wait because Shirley worried that telling the true story would out his sexuality. Shirley passed away from heart disease in April 2013, less that five months after “Lip” died.

She became addicted to 

heroin and later contracted HIV and died of AIDS-related complications.

A Texas Court removed her name from her son’s birth certificate because she is transgender. Sometimes funny, sometimes factual, and always sincere, she answers all questions with honesty and candor. She is a Global Ambassador for the Kinsey Institute at the University of Indiana, a Stonewall School Role Model, a speaker for the National Health Service in England, and a collaborator with colleagues from the University of Oxford on a project to help further the understanding of transgender and gender non-conforming youth. Jessica Lynn holds dual citizenship in the UK and the USA.
