FORTY YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH TODAY

THANKFUL TO THIS DAY OF HIS LEADING EXAMPLE

If you go back in time and realize the overall atmosphere and environment around the LGBTQ community in this nation, you will realize the Harvey Milk was a groundbreaking figure.

To this day, his effect is still felt.

More so in the 2018 midterm elections when a significant number of LGBTQ candidates achieved their goal of being elected to the post they were running for.

 Thank you, Mr. Milk!!

Gay rights pioneer Harvey Milk was assassinated on Nov. 27, 1978, just one year after becoming California’s first openly gay elected official

Nov. 27, 2018 / 9:10 AM EST
By Tim Fitzsimons

“It’s not my victory, it’s yours and yours and yours”

Harvey Milk said after winning a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in late 1977.

“If a gay can win, it means there is hope that the system can work for all minorities if we fight. We’ve given them hope.”

A year after delivering that speech and making history as the first openly gay elected official in California – and one of the first in the country – Milk was gunned down at San Francisco City Hall on Nov. 27, 1978.

He was just 48.

But during his short time in office, Milk made his mark. He helped to pass the country’s first gay rights ordinance, which sparked the legal LGBTQ-rights revolution that has since resulted in a nationwide right to same-sex marriage and an increasing number of LGBTQ-rights protections in cities and states across the country.
Milk also undoubtedly inspired future generations of LGBTQ Americans to enter politics.

Earlier this month, 40 years after his death and decades after his history-making election, a record-breaking “rainbow wave” of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans followed in his footsteps by running for office and winning.

Randy Rainbow Interviews Betsy DeVos

‘Are You a Little High Right Now?’

“Laughter is the best medicine.”

Thanks for keeping us kinda sane with these videos during this endless fuckery that Drumpf’s presidency is.

This video says it all.

Satirist Randy Rainbow is at it again with his “interview” of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who in a recent 60 Minutes interview, proved she knows very little about her job, except for the damage she’s done, like rescinding protections for transgender students, rolling back campus sexual assault guidelines, and slashing guidelines for disabled students.

In a 60 Minutes-esque profile, Rainbow says,

“The wealthiest member of Donald Trump’s cabinet, Betsy DeVos looks like a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day balloon of Helen Mirren and thinks the #MeToo movement is absolutely adorable.”

“When she’s not busy decoupaging or defunding public education she can be found at local elementary schools interviewing potential secretaries of state,” Rainbow continues.

Watch Rainbow skewer DeVos below.

‘First They Came’ …. “Martin Niemöller …. 🇺🇸 Adaptation for America’s Current Administration 🇺🇸 …. “!!

FIRST THEY CAME

This poem is timeless and immemorial. It is so ‘on point’ that is has been used frequently to describe current happenings.

A friend sent me this site and a link to this modern adaptation. It’s befitting to the current reality of the nation.

All credit given to site, author and poet.

Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

FIRST THEY CAME

~Wikipedia~

GoldSwirl

“The famous poem by an anti-Nazi pastor, rewritten for Donald Trump’s America”

To see Donald Trump methodically lay into one group after another during the months of the presidential campaign has been to see Niemöller’s warning writ large across our screens.

But during all these months, I haven’t noticed much speaking out by one group in support of another.

It’s time for everyone to remember Niemöller’s words, and speak out in support of anyone who becomes the target of this hate-monger and his alt-right cohorts.

At the end of the day, Trump is coming for all of us.

Gay Pride or LGBT Pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world.

STONEWALL UPRISING

~HONORING THOSE BRAVE SOULS WHO CAME BEFORE ME~

I was a teenager at this time.

I was barely 18 going on 19.

I wasn’t sure about my sexuality yet I knew I was different. I was living in Puerto Rico and cut away from these happenings in New York.

With time, I have come to learn about the importance of this uprising and I honor those who came before me and cleared the way that allowed me to accept and cherish my sexuality and live a fulfilling life, the way I am …

for I was born this way!

Forty-eight years ago today, New York City police began harassing LGBTQ patrons of the Stonewall Inn simply for congregating, those patrons decided they’d had enough.

~Human Rights Campaign~

The Stonewall Riots (also referred to as the Stonewall Uprising or the Stonewall Rebellion) were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBT) community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.

They are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.

Randy Rainbow Song Parody …. “famous 100 days …. UNPOPULAR! …. – 🎶…. “!!


~~May 1, 2017~~ 

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

I’m really trying, for real, to get away from this topic.

Yet, HE’S there all the time, EVERYWHERE.

When one doesn’t earn respect, one earns disdain, scorn and mockery.

Randy Rainbow and his humor makes the days tolerable for me.

This one describes the famous “100 days”.

Take a look!

BLine

~Face The Rainbow~

The first 100 days of Drumpf’s presidency began with his inauguration as the 45th President of the United States, which occurred at noon on January 20, 2017.

Structurally, Drumpf has the advantage of a Republican Party majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, but has been unable to fulfill his major pledges in his first 100 days and had an approval rating of between 40 and 42 percent, “the lowest for any first-term president at this point in his tenure”.

Thoughts for today, #463 …. “Preparing for the possible anti-LGBT assault …. Not going back into the closet …. “!!


moovz

~~January 30, 2017~~ 

THE CLOSET DOOR WAS DESTROYED

The LGBT community has existed since the early days of time.

It wasn’t called that back then.

Great advances were made during the Obama administration which gave our community a sense of equality.

Many came before us who sacrificed to lead us to where we are now.

Harvey Milk was one of the many.

There are also plenty of heroes whose names aren’t know.

With rumors of executive orders coming our way, we mus remain vigilant and ready to stand for our God-given rights as equal human beings.

Not going back into the closet.

Harvey Bernard Milk (May 22, 1930 – November 27, 1978) was an American politician who became the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California, when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

Politics and gay activism were not his early interests; he was not open about his homosexuality and did not participate in civic matters until around the age of 40, after his experiences in the counterculture of the 1960’s.
