I am sad. Rest in power, Geta, you bravespace groundbreaker. I’ve loved the art you made and the presumably zero shits you gave. #queerelders #getabratescu #Repost @hauserwirth with @get_repost ・・・ In loving memory of Geta Brătescu, 1926 – 2018. Hauser & Wirth and Ivan Gallery, Bucharest are saddened by the passing of dear friend and artist Geta Brătescu. – Credited as a pioneer in the field of Romanian Conceptualism, Geta Brătescu developed a practice concerned with themes of identity, gender, and dematerialisation. Brătescu was born in Ploieşti, Romania, in 1926. From 1945 to 1949, she studied at the Faculty of Letters and Philosophy at the University of Bucharest under renowned Romanian literary critics, George Călinescu and Tudor Vianu, and at the Bucharest Academy of Fine Arts with painter and academic, Camil Ressu. In 1950 her studies were interrupted by the Communist government, and she was unable to complete her art education until 1971. Following her exclusion from university, Brătescu worked principally as an illustrator and graphic designer, and in the early 1960s became the artistic director of prestigious literary magazine, Secolul 20. – Under the Communist regime, Brătescu established a deeply personal practice, and her studio became a site for restoration and self-analysis. The studio held a significant place in her work, a relationship documented in her 1978 film, ‘The Studio’, which addresses her approach to the dissolution of the frontier between spaces of art making and daily life. Brătescu’s oeuvre comprised drawing, collage, engraving, textiles, photography, as well as experimental film, video and performance. She published a number of books documenting her daily studio activities and personal experiences of art and travel. #GetaBrătescu Image: Geta Brătescu, 2015. Photo: Ștefan Sava. © Geta Brătescu.

“I think the greatest fear for me is the greatest fear for anybody who’s in a couple, that my partner will pass away. I’m also worried about the lack of nursing homes and long-term care facilities geared toward our community. Right now, if something happened and I needed to be in a home, finding a place where I would be comfortable would be a challenge. I’m hopeful that in the next twenty years, something will change, preferably sooner rather than later.” Sky, 64, Palm Springs, California Right in the feels, thanks again @jesstdugan for this incredible series.

this BOOK. broke my heart, put it back together and broke it again. “this is what courage is. it’s not just living through the nightmare, it’s doing something with it afterward. it’s being brave enough to talk about it to other people. it’s trying to organize to change things.” thank you, leslie. 🌈 // #lesliefeinberg #queeroes #queerelders #stonebutchblues #lgbtq #butchisnotadirtyword #queerliterature #queerlit

On June 28, 1969, our elders took a stand. They fought back so that a future where we could be openly Queer in this world was possible. Their fight was not lost on us. We are grateful every day, and we honor you on this 49th anniversary of The Stonewall Riot weekend. The day that you bled for us. The day that you fought back. The day that you proved that we have a voice, and it is POWERFUL. This candle is for Stormé DeLarverie, Sylvia Rivera, Marsha P. Johnson, Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt, and every anonymous and unnamed Queer person who swung back. #sayhername #stonewall #stonewallriots #stonewallwasariot #marshapjohnson #queer #sylviarivera #stormedelarverie #thomaslaniganschmidt #queerelders #pride2018 #pride

Happy Pride, y'all. No, I'm not straight. I'm bi, or, as the kids are calling it these days, pansexual. I came out in 1989. I've had relationships with people of various combinations of gender and biological sex, and, in the parlance of queer women who came before me, I am a proud femme. That's just natural for me. This is me at Pride in about 1992. . . . #femme #queerfemme #pride🌈 #lgbthistory #queerelders #pansexual #PTSD #traffickingsurvivor #disability #chronicpain #fibromyalgia #spoonie

Last night at #FreshMeatFest, @blackberrisinger switched up his set when he found out @missmajor1 was in the house. He added a song just for her called “Back of the Bus” which was about having sex on the back of a greyhound bus. He had us all including Miss Major simultaneously stomping our feet/hands, dancing in our seats, & giggling like kids in a schoolyard at a dirty sexy joke. What an honor to have these two sexy and legendary trans/queer elders at Fresh Meat Festival. FreshMeatFeat of #trans and #queer #performance! June 14-16 @zspace_theatre (ASL Interpretation June 15.

Colette released her most acclaimed novel Gigi in 1944, which was adapted for the stage. She discovered Audrey Hepburn, picking her for the role after seeing her in a hotel lobby in Monte Carlo where she reportedly whispered “voilà, c’est Gigi.” Here she is, snuggled up to Audrey (and living my teenage dream) in 1951. Colette wrote and published prolifically all her life, living to the grand old age of 81. I wanna take this moment to thank @sageusa for everything they do. Our queer elders need to be honored, respected and upheld as those who forged the path for our freedom to have a public voice of pride and dignity. Sage advocates for LGBT seniors, who are more likely to live alone and often don’t have children or family members to offer support. In the words of Sage: “If we don’t look out for each other, who will?” 💜 #queerhistory #bisexualpride #colette #audreyhepburn #gigi #sageusa #pride #girlswholikegirls #queerelders #lgbtcommunity #haveprideinhistory

For your Pride Season Mixcloud Playlist, I state I'm a firm believer in having to remember where you've been to see where you're going. To root and meditate on our history is to build for a stronger future. With that in mind, Who paved the way for those of us that get to reclaim the Queer label? Who were some of the musicians? Luckily those that would be seen through our modern understandings of Queerness proves that the collective we outside of binaries, patriarchy and heterosexuality have always existed. There's a few openly queer survivors on this mix such as #AndyBey, #JackieShane, #JohnnyMathis and #MitchRyder. There's also a number of voices that sadly weren't able to reach a point that their lives were to be as beautiful as the music they created like #RudyLewis of #TheDrifters, #DustySpringfield, #ArthurConley and #BigMamaThornton. Alongside them are some camp and queer reading recordings by some straight folks in one mix that is very close to my heart. Hug it out homos, it's gonna be alright if we stick together. Find it at mixcloud.com/larsupreme65 or https://djlarsupreme.com/2018/06/12/pride-allies-a-queer-mid-century-celebration-mix. . . #mixcloud #playlist #lgbt #prideseason #queerelders #queerancestors #queerlegends #lbgtqhistory #queerdj

I was recently introduced to the work of Mab Segrest, a white southern lesbian who organized against the Klan in the 80's. And I have long loved Minnie Bruce Pratt whose book S/He helped me to claim Femme. Turns out that they were both part of a lesbian feminist writing collective called... FEMINARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I met Michael about nine years ago through my Partner. We became fast friends, and family. We lost touch around the time my Tia got sick. When his line got disconnected, we thought the worst. Yet, here he is blowing our minds. We found Michael, and my heart feels so fucking happy. #tripplebypass #throatulcer #polyps I promised him I’m taking better care of him from now on. #elder #grandpa #lapidaryartist #love #eldercare #rocklover #queer #queerlove #queerelders 💓🔮💗🙏🏽🌈🌈🌈🌈❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤💞

Our last Astro Tattoo session in Victoria was with our queer elder who turns 73 when the Moon is next new & Uranus enters Taurus. To mark the change she feels coming she got her 1st ever tattoo! ✨ . The more we do this project, the more profound I realise it is. To be able to sit with one of our elders, who was born when the world was a different place & look back at transits to her life & changes in the world was an honour. . Her 1st Tattoo is just for her, representing her past, present & future, laid out through the beautiful symbolism of astrology & reflected back in story & now as a beautiful reminder in her body. #blowsmeaway . 🎶 Each session we listen to hits of the year you were born, as those songs were born & new in this world when you were. In this case we listened to the hits of 1945.🎶 . For a world just emerging from war, the sounds were very relaxing. It was a time when people sat & listened to music, not in passing, but to a whole record, gathered round together. It was a defo change of pace from the 80’s & 90’s playlists that we often play. . We start the Salt Spring leg of our #islandtour today. The energy of the land here is palpable...& the way landscape shapes people & their energy is a welcome change to our city vibes. . #astrotattoosessions #queerelders #storytelling #taurusfeelsthechangescoming #facethechange #nowheretorunto #nowheretohide #taurusseason #astrology #astroart #astrotattoo #uranusintaurus #thankyou 🙌🏼💓🙌🏼

Had so much fun chaperoning queer prom again this year. From the amazing outfits and performances to young people showing up 100% as their authentic selves (and a few who had heartbreaking stories of dates whose homophobic parents would let them come, or partners too scared to come out with then), this, as always, was such an empowering experience.

Spotted in my neighbourhood. I love that I live in a neighbourhood where queer youth rub shoulders with queer elders. I guess I just about qualify as a queer elder now. I came out in 1989 in a very different world from the one we live in now, and I've got my tales to tell. . . . #queerelders #lgbtelders #gayelders #lgbt #lgbtpride #rainbow

This Aunty is one of the biggest legends I’ve ever met and my face is a bit weird in this pic cos I’m legit trying to not to bawl from the sheer force of the love. Muriel Miguel is a Kuna/Rappahannock force to be reckoned with, born and bred in Brooklyn on Lenape land. In her own words (spoken bluntly to a consortium of international producers at an ISPA reception the other night: “The shit you have to eat as an Indian in the city- it’s real” (truuuuue god, Aunty 😂😂😂). She is the founder of Spiderwoman Theatre (and still its artistic director at 81 years old), which is the oldest Native American feminist theatre company. Sistagirl Merindah Donnelly shared some knowledge with us about Aunty’s links with the Blak arts and Civil Rights movements in australia: Uncle Bob Maza met with her in NYC back in the 1980’s, after which he returned to australia and with others founded Ilbijerri Theatre Company. Embodied encounters that illuminate the weft and weave and deep entwinements of shared resistance that have been coursed by our peoples, across great distance and through many layers of time, are life-giving. It’s a continually unfolding revelation of such beauty and power it leaves me just totally humbled and awed and full of feelings I can’t name. #fndialogues #lenapehoking #blakdance #ourpeople #brooklynnative #firstnations #mannahatta #lineage #Elders #queerelders #firstnationsfeminist

I told my father I'd only go on a Jewish centric historical tour of Charleston, if there was queer history included. Pictured here is Dawn Langley Simmons, who was born intersex, assigned male at birth and was one of the early pioneers when she medically transitioned in 1968. A well known and well liked member of Charleston, Dawn's transition caused a stir, but the real scandal was when she married a black man, John Paul Simmons, shortly after. The local newspaper printed the wedding announcement on the obituary page. When they started a family a few years later, the city was beside itself. Dawn was a fearless pioneer in more ways than one, and paved the way for trans folks like me. I have found it much easier to connect and care about history, my own family's and in general, since coming out, and was very grateful to visit the beautiful home Dawn loved and lived in for many years. So very very grateful to the queer folks who came before me, without whom, I surely wouldn't have made it. 🙏🏼 . . . #queerhistory #transhistory #lgbthistory #lgbtqhistory #transelders #queerelders #respectyourelders #queer #queerculture

"Ray of Light" Bear Botanicals Deodorant with lemongrass, citrus, and a hint of floral. I make these deodorants in small batches, and with high quality ingredients and essential oils. Last weekend I went to a talk by Patrick Califia at KinkFest, and he mentioned that Madonna's Sex Book was never confiscated when crossing the border into the states, but Patrick's books have been stopped at various borders because of obscenity laws many times. Why is this? It makes me have a second thought about putting folks like Madonna on a pedestal. #queerelders #deodorant #naturaldeodorant #reflections #kink #kinkfest #patrickcalifia #madonna #bodycare #bodypositivity #selfcare #rayoflight #naturalbodycare #organicdeodorant #bearbotanicals

Marsha P johnson, and Sylvia Rivera and someone else whose name i didn't bother to find out tbh before posting but i will check back and see if i can find it. NEVER FORGET how we are deeply situated in a history of fighters, never forget all that you have is the benefit of battles fought and frequently lost. never forget to look back as much as forward, and even if you're not a praying type just to express a little gratitude for their sacrifices can be a powerful form of self-expression and firmly rooting yourself in the shoes that walk the land that was poured over for you to one day cross in some ways unshackled. #destinyithink #queerelders #imoldasdirt

As Nakay Flotte relfects: "Juan Gabriel's refusal to "come out of the closet" has forever influenced Mexican gender and sexuality politics. By refusing to publicly state with whom he shares his bed while simultaneously appearing unapologetically femme and qweeny, JG is not a "gay icon" but a femme one, un genio amanerado. When young, we were taught to ridicule Juan Gabriel. Mexicans explained this shaming by identifying him "as gay" (something he never stated). Rather, all we saw and needed to know was his display of glitter, poetry, and melody. Juan Gabriel taught me that refusing to tell anyone my sexuality is an opening for people to identify us for our artistic and intellectual contributions, for who we are and the relations we forge everyday". 💙Gracias, Queridaaa! We will miss you! 🎨by: @juliosalgado83 #WhatsYourIssue: #FemmeVisibility #QueerElders #JuanGabriel #ElDivoDeJuarez #AmorEterno #LaJoteria #DeLuto

Not gay as in happy, but queer as in "Fuck You!" #pride #davidwojnarowicz #knowyrhistory #queerelders "One day this kid will get larger. One day this kid will come to know something that causes a sensation equivalent to the separation of the earth from its axis. One day this kid will reach a point where he senses a division that isn't mathematical. One day this kid will feel something stir in his heart and throat and mouth. One day this kid will find something in his mind and body and soul that makes him hungry. One day this kid will do something that causes men who wear the uniforms of priests and rabbis, men who inhabit certain stone buildings, to call for his death. One day politicians will enact legislation against this kid. One day families will give false information to their children and each child will pass that information down generationally to their families and that information will be designed to make existence intolerable for this kid. One day this kid will begin to experience all this activity in his environment and that activity and information will compel him to commit suicide or submit to danger in hopes of being murdered or submit to silence and invisibility. Or one day this kid will talk. When he begins to talk, men who develop a fear of this kid will attempt to silence him with strangling, fists, prison, suffocation, rape, intimidation, drugging, ropes, guns, laws, menace, roving gangs, bottles, knives, religion, decapitation, and immolation by fire. Doctors will pronounce this kid curable as if his brain were a virus. This kid will lose his constitutional rights against the government's invasion of his privacy. This kid will be faced with electro-shock, drugs, and conditioning therapies in laborator tended by psychologists and research scientists. He will be subject to loss of home, civil rights, jobs, and all conceivable freedoms. All this will begin to happen in one or two years when he discovers he desires to place his naked body on the naked body of another boy."
