The gay hero who challenged his discharge from the U.S. Air Force for being a homosexual and won in federal court, which ordered his reinstatement, is buried at historic Congressional Cemetery in Washington, DC. Leonard Matlovich chose the site for his burial, just a few plots away from the burial site of notorious FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and the site where Hoover's rumored lover Clyde Tolson is interred between Matlovich and Hoover. Matlovich also liked that Peter Doyle, the great love of Walt Whitman, is also buried at Congressional Cemetery. Matlovich designed his black granite headstone with the now famous epitaph: "When I Was In the Military They Gave Me A Metal for Killing Two Men and A Discharge for Loving One.” During his three tours of duty in Vietnam with the Air Force, Matlovich received a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. 🏳️‍🌈 Matlovich's funeral service and interment where on July 4, 1988. #LeonardMatlovich #lgbtinamerica #LGBTQHistoryMonth #gayveteran #CongressionalCemetery #WashingtonDC

#Repost @nyclgbtsites ・・・ Jack Doroshow, better known around the United States as the legendary drag queen Flawless Sabrina, organized his first drag show in 1959 and produced many thereafter, working surreptitiously to avoid the morality police and sometimes the actual police, since some cities and states still had laws against cross-dressing.⠀ -⠀ His 1967 drag show at NYC's The Town Hall is documented in the film “The Queen,” a landmark of gay, bisexual and transgender culture.⠀ -⠀ In his later decades, Mr. Doroshow became an informal counselor and mentor to many LGBT people, holding salons at his home on East 73rd Street in Manhattan. Flawless Sabrina was a mother or grandmother figure to those who visited there.⠀ -⠀ #nyclgbtsites #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbthistorymonth #lgbtqhistorymonth #drag #dragqueen #dragball #pageant #gaycinema #filmhistory

#Repost @nyclgbtsites ・・・ Divine -- called “Drag Queen of the Century” by People Magazine in 1988 -- was born Harris Glenn Milstead on this day in 1945.⠀ -⠀ He became a hairdresser after high school, and later began dressing in drag and throwing parties in his native Baltimore. Neighbor, filmmaker and lifelong collaborator John Waters gave him the name Divine because Water felt she was "the most beautiful woman in the world, almost." Together, the two were partners in crime who made wildly, delightfully trashy, iconic films: "Roman Candles," "Eat Your Makeup," "Multiple Maniacs," "Pink Flamingos," "Female Trouble," etc.⠀ -⠀ Divine also performed on stage in New York City, in theaters and as a club performer, at locations such as the legendary Studio 54. (text from them. magazine).⠀ -⠀ Photo: (1) Divine photographed in New York City, 1975; (2) Divine photographed by Antonio Lopez in New York, 1978.⠀ -⠀ #nyclgbtsites #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbthistory #lgbthistorymonth #lgbtqhistorymonth #divine #johnwaters

Being the nature lovers that we are, we spent our Tuesday playing and casually rolling around in some fall leaves. 🍁 Definitely came home with dirt and probably a few bugs in our hair... 🤷🏼‍♀️ But it was totally worth it. Hope the pics turned out! 😂 - Also, how gorgeous is this hanging wall piece by ? It is super soft and so beautifully detailed!

Often considered one of the premier centers of American musical life and history, Carnegie Hall has continually featured the work and performances of countless LGBT artists. Among them: conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos, who led the New York Philharmonic between 1950 and 1957, until he became the victim of McCarthy-era homophobia.⠀ -⠀ Today, on the anniversary of his death (1960), we celebrate Mitropoulos' talents.⠀ -⠀ Photos: (1) Dimitri Mitropoulos photographed for Life.com; (2) Exterior of Carnegie Hall.⠀ -⠀ #nyclgbtsites #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbthistorymonth #lgbtqhistorymonth #gay #gayhistory #conductor #musichistory #carnegiehall

😍👏These are so iconic! Bringing #LGBTQ legends I love to life on social for #LGBTQHistoryMonth with the incredible @artbycheyne is definitely a “pinch me, I get to do this as a job?!” moment. Wouldn’t you want to read these comics?! 🏳️‍🌈

On November 6th, 1927, thousands of people lined the streets of Harlem when the hearse carrying Florence Mills began its drive to her final resting place: The Woodlawn Cemetery & Conservancy, in the Bronx. Mills had died just days before, on November 1st.⠀ -⠀ Known as the "Queen of Happiness," Mills was among the most popular entertainers of the 1920s. A singer, dancer, and vaudevillian who rose to fame following her lead role in the production of "Shuffle Along," Mills was immortalized by composer and musician Duke Ellington with his tribute "Black Beauty."⠀ -⠀ When fellow performer and key Lesbian Herstory Archives member Mabel Hampton was asked if Mills was gay, she responded, "Yeah, all of them girls were. Every last one of them. They didn’t call it 'gay'–I don’t know what they called it–but all of them was one of those."⠀ -⠀ Photos: (1) Florence Mills, by Edward Steichen for Vanity Fair, published 1925, via the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution / © The Estate of Edward Steichen/Joanna T. Steichen; (2) Florence Mill's headstone at Woodlawn Cemetery; (3) Funeral procession as Florence Mill's casket is delivered to its final resting place in the Bronx.⠀ -⠀ #nyclgbtsites #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbthistorymonth #lgbtqhistorymonth #lesbian #herstory #womenshistory #blackhistory #Harlem #jazz

So beautiful! 💖 . Posted @withrepost • @itgetsbetter “When I talk to 13-year-old YouTuber Presley Alexander, who came out on her channel two years ago, and Carolyn Weathers, a #lesbian activist, writer and publisher who moved to LA in 1968 — one year after the Black Cat Riot — the two of them can’t help gushing at each other and tearing up. ❤️ • ‘I love it when people like Presley say thank you, because there was someone before me and I got to stand on their shoulders, and she’s standing on my shoulders,’ she says. ‘And some day, some generation that hasn’t been born yet or are babies, they’re gonna stand on her shoulders. And I just always cry. It really gets me.’ We could all feel that sentiment clear as day. And we could all see it.” 🌈 • For #LGBTQHistoryMonth we brought five pioneers from the Los Angeles #LGBTQ+ scene together with five young #activists. The results (and pictures) were amazing!
