Before the 1900s to The Suffragettes

The Friends of Dorothy Era and The Hayes Code

1766 – Christoffel Bosch van Leeuwarden, a seventy year old porter in the Netherlands, was convicted of seduction to sodomy and sentenced to three years of prison labor.

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.

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.

Before the 1900s to The Suffragettes

1884 – Eleanor Roosevelt (October 11, 1884 – November 7, 1962) is born. Famed for her work as a human rights activist and for her outspokenness as first lady, Roosevelt was also bisexual. She had long-term relationships with her husband, Franklin, and her dear friend, Lorena Hickock (March 7, 1893 – May 1, 1968). Roosevelt cared deeply about humanity. She once wrote, of the need to save the Jewish people of Europe, “We will be the sufferers if we let great wrongs occur without exerting ourselves to correct them.” She worked to pass anti-lynching legislation. She wrote a column urging congress not to further abrogate the sovereignty of American Indians. She resigned from the DAR when they refused to let opera star Marian Anderson sing in their hall (because Anderson was African-American) and she arranged instead for her to sing at the Lincoln Memorial. She publicly opposed Apartheid long before world sentiment was united about it. She served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. She was one of the most admired women in America in her day. Biographer Blanche Weisen has said that Roosevelt’s bisexuality and her relationship with Lorena Hickock were powerful influences on the human rights work she was so admired for.

1924 – Truman Garcia Capote (born Truman Streckfus Persons, September 30, 1924 – August 25, 1984) is born. He was an American novelist, screenwriter, playwright, and actor, many of whose short stories, novels, plays, and nonfiction are recognized as literary classics, including the novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1958) and the true crime novel In Cold Blood(1966), which he labeled a “nonfiction novel”. At least 20 films and television dramas have been produced of Capote novels, stories, and plays. Capote was openly homosexual. One of his first serious lovers was Smith College literature professor Newton Arvin. Although Capote seemed never really to embrace the gay rights movement, his own openness about homosexuality and his encouragement for openness in others makes him an important player in the realm of gay rights nonetheless. Capote died in Bel Air, Los Angeles, on August 25, 1984, age 59. According to the coroner’s report, the cause of death was “liver disease complicated by phlebitis and multiple drug intoxication.”[59]He died at the home of his old friend Joanne Carson, ex-wife of late-night TV host Johnny Carson, on whose program Capote had been a frequent guest. Gore Vidal responded to news of Capote’s death by calling it “a wise career move.”

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.

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.

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.

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)
