2 Stop Shop Today

A short and efficient outing to Chain Grocery Store then Chain Drug Store; and home again.

I did a moderate walking exercise at the Grocery Store and watched a store staffer restock magazines.

People re-learning that reading is relaxing because it’s reflected light, from the page to your eye, rather than screen light into them.

Also, no distracting visuals adverts that eat through your data plan.

The new internet, all the same old crap, in higher resolution and three times faster.

At the Chain Drug Store, I browsed the Audio-Visual and Computer Department.

Glancing through the CDs, DVDS and Blu rays in the out front discount bins and the 12 inch Vinyl in 180 grams on the prestige shelving; I made my way unbothered by staff into the computer department.

 

I glanced at the thin client consumer gadgets, the vast array of add on products that used to be included in the original machines, from exploded drawings to products that are modular and expandable; a plethora of customizing your off the shelf product.

 

Anyway, it was an easy square loop of blocks and backing into driveway remains a challenge.

Yesterday, I had a telephone call from the Federal Human Rights and I had to manage a panic/anxiety attack.

so yay me today.

their founding fathers, most of whom were bi if not actually gay, expected that America would return to the English fold – and if that didn’t happen for another revolution within 80 years to replace what they cobbled together. and it turned into a theocracy in the 1950s and is acting out now in a desperate attempt to either make the world christian or end it in a may way or no way temper tantrum.
Drop in teenage suicide attempts linked to legalisation of same-sex marriage | US news | The Guardian

“Legalisation of same-sex marriage in US states has been linked to a drop in suicide attempts among teenagers.

Researchers say suicide attempts among high school students fell by an average of 7% following the implementation of the legislation. The impact was especially significant among gay, lesbian and bisexual teenagers, for whom the passing of same-sex marriage laws was linked to a 14% drop in suicide attempts.”

When Gay was a White Person Thing

There was a time in Western Queer Culture that it was what decadent white people did.

White gay men were first to have enough privilege to be out, 1930s Berlin was proto-queer and quashed by the Nazi Traditional Family Values, where none of the party leaders were actually tall blonde or blue eyed and none of the more Nordic nations joined in.

Anyway, Modern Queer culture is pinned to America’s New York NY City 3 day riot triggered by yet another Police demand for payoffs/raid from the Stonewall Riot.

Image result for stonewall inn 1st brick

Marsha was the one who ‘really started it’ on the night of the riots, according to witnesses in David Carter’s Stonewall biography.

Meanwhile, in Canada, it was the bathhouse raids in 1980

9/11 the queer victims and their queer survivors were excluded from any and all compensation or recognition, despite one of leading the charge into the towers and another one on the plane that crashed in the field.

social moviements wave

White Gay men and White Women could pass for mainstream, so we had some intermittent connection and access to social power and privilege.

 Facebook Extra! I went to cover the first Gwen Jacobs march in Vancouver in the early 1990s, and ended up joining and on the national evening news. I was topless, but I put AIDS awareness stickers over my nipples. seriously, never do that. put a barrier down.. removal was less than fun, eh? https://dykewriter.wordpress.com/2013/12/10/justice-robes-vs-hoodie/

Gay and Lesbian groups that formed societies in the early 1900s were largely white, and into the 1970s and 1990s, the face of the queer community was a White Gay Man.

There’s a sub invisibility vibe, that while gay men have access to the Good Ole Boys Network, the White Lesbians are kinda left holding the door.

White Heterosexuals feared that their offspring even knowing that there were gays and lesbians could cause an experimentation phase – the bisexual, LUG (lesbian until graduation), drunk guy pals oops how’d that happen dude – with the assumption of it being a waystation on the way to boytown for all who bored it, male or female.

1950s and sex changes made medically possible altered the invert, passing, drag and cross dressing to performing as Female performers; many cultures with a theatrical history of men playing all the parts on theatre and opera.

Non-White communities tried to keep their offspring in the community by deploring the white decadence and Down Low or D/L was formally named.

Forbidden Love

The Vancouver Lesbian Centre lasted a decade from the mid 1980s into the 1990s and exploded in a complex collision of events that included representation across the ethnicity spectrum.

Nina Angles

Angles Newspaper arose from a 1980s collective and was struggling for lesbian content in a pale male voting group, it ended in the 1990s, when Xtra in Toronto, arising from the Body Politic group in the 1970s moved to become a national paper, and the Angles group didn’t deal and eventually there was not enough advertising dollars in the community to support 2 papers.

Xtra was Gay and Lesbian, Angles declared Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and Bisexual.

In the 1990s, we used the phrase “lesbigay” prior to the LGBT becoming the newspaper convention to not have to list the 4 words each time. But to me, LGBT sounds like a sandwich order: lettuce bacon guacamole and tomato… I prefer the all inclusive “Queer” over the currently LGBTQAITS alphabet soup of fractalation over generations.

Rights are Geographic and Demographicly Depantantthe last Angles 1990s

Xtra became at it’s Peak:

Island Xtra on Vancouver Island, Xtra West in Vancouver, Capitol Xtra in Ottawa with the original Xtra in Toronto.

One of the founders of the paper was gay married to a man named Brian Mossop, who worked for the Canada Federal Government.

The RCMP Apology

 

“People gathered in Centenary Square as the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Geoff Reid, gave a speech, saying the LGBT History Month was about celebrating “both solidarity and difference”.
He said: “We are delighted to raise the LGBT flag as part of the history month.”
Cllr Reid reflected on equal rights campaigns in his living memory, saying: “When I was a student, I took part in the campaign which led to the decriminalisation of homosexuality.””
BRADFORD’S biggest LGBT History Month to date officially began today with the raising of the Gay Pride and Trans Pride flags in Centenary Square.

To think this man whose contributions are STILL shaping this world was arrested for being gay, should never be forgotten. Use your voice!

how much more do queers have to contribute to the world before we’re not on the genocide menu?

That is a really good question. I can’t understand why anyone would want to murder people who are different but don’t do anybody any harm!

self haters projecting onto the world. it take religion to twist someone who might have otherwise been good.
