Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden (@librarycongress) has named 25 films of cultural, historic and aesthetic importance to the National Film Registry! We're especially thrilled to see BECKY SHARP (1935) and BEFORE STONEWALL (1984) receive recognition, both works preserved at the UCLA Film & Television Archive. BECKY SHARP (Rouben Mamoulian, 1935) is a technological landmark as the first feature film shot entirely in three-strip Technicolor. The film was painstakingly restored from 1984 to 2002 by the UCLA Film & Television Archive with funding from @neaarts. BEFORE STONEWALL (Greta Schiller, Robert Rosennerg, 1984) provides a detailed look at the history and making of the LGBTQ community in 20th-century America. Film elements, prints and a new digital cinema package are in the @Outfest UCLA Legacy Project Collection. @nfregistry #nationalfilmregistry #libraryofcongress #uclarestorations #lgbtqhistory

EMPEROR WU: Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty ruled China for 54 years between the 2nd and 1st centuries BCE. Although a warmonger, he was a big proponent of Confucianism, establishing the world's first official universities to teach it to his people. Despite Confucianism's social conservatism, though, Emperor Wu has several male lovers throught his life, but his strongest love was for a man named Han Yun. They began a love affair together while still young, and upon ascension to emperor, Wu granted Han Yun undeserved prestigious titles and positions in government. The obvious favoritism caused much tension in the court and made a hypocrite out of Wu who implemented the rule of promoting and bestowing rank based on academic excellence and skill instead of having the right connections. Ultimately, pressure from all sides forced Wu to mandate that Han Yu take his own life, ending the affair and his lover's undue place in government. . . #QueerMagicBook #EmperorWu #HanDynasty #China #GayChina #QueerChina #LgbtChina #LgbtqChina #gay #queer #lgbt #lgbtq #queerhistory #ancientchina #chinesehistory #gayemperor #queeremperor #lgbtemperor #lgbtqemperor #gayhistory #lgbthistory #lgbtqhistory #confucianism #gayconfucianism #queerconfucianism #lgbtconfucianism #lgbtqconfucianism #HanYun #Wu #Zhongguo

Ellen insisted on teaching love & acceptance for ALL -well before it was accepted. Heck #dianesawyer would never act that way today. And Ellen did it despite plummeting ratings. But look at her now! Using your voice for change CAN produce positive results ✊ #lgbtq #lgbtqrights #lgbtqsupporter #lgbtqhistory #lgbtqactivist

When Angelina Weld Grimké got a job teaching at Dunbar Hugh School in Washington she fell deeply in love with fellow teacher Mamie Burrill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She wrote to her sometime in the 1910s: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Oh Mamie if you only knew how my heart overflows with love for you and how it yearns and pants for one glimpse of your lovely face. Your passionate lover” #myheart ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For more Grimké, I wrote about her back back when. She was a major figure in the Harlem Renaissance. If you haven’t heard of this 1920s African American literary and cultural movement then go check it out tout de suite, it was also the original queer revolution. ✊🏾 #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbthistory #lgbtqhistory #lesbian #lesbianhistory #queer #queerhistory #history #harlem #harlemrenaissance

#tbt Deborah Lynn "Debbie" Friedman (23.02. 1951 – 9.01. 2011)was an American singer-songwriter of Jewish religious songs and melodies. She was born in Utica, New York, but moved with her family to Minnesota at age 6. She is best known for her setting of "Mi Shebeirach",the prayer for healing, which is used by hundreds of congregations across America.Her songs are used by some Orthodox Jewish congregations, as well as non-Orthodox Jewish congregations. Friedma was a feminist, and Orthodox Jewish feminist Blu Greenberg noted that while Friedman's music impacted most on Reform and Conservative liturgy, "she had a large impact [in] Modern Orthodox shuls, women’s tefillah [prayer], the Orthodox feminist circles.... She was a religious bard and angel for the entire community. She wrote many of her early songs as a song leader at the overnight camp Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, in the early 1970s. Between 1971 and 2010 she recorded 22 albums.Her work was inspired by such diverse sources as Joan Baez, Peter, Paul and Mary, and a number of other folk music artists. Friedman employed both English and Hebrew lyrics. She performed in synagogues and concert halls.Friedman had suffered since the 1990s from a neurological condition,with effects apparently similar to multiple sclerosis.The story of her music, as well as the challenges she faced in living with illness, were featured in a 2004 documentary film about Friedman called A Journey of Spirit, produced by Ann Coppel, which followed her from 1997 to 2002. In 2007, Friedman accepted an appointment to the faculty of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion's School of Sacred Music in New York (now called the Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music) where she instructed both rabbinic and cantorial students. In 2010, she was named to the Forward 50 after the release of her 22nd album As You Go On Your Way: Shacharit – The Morning Prayers. Friedman was a lesbian but did not talk about it in public. Her obituary in The New York Times was thus the first time her sexual identity was publicized. #lesbian #lesbianhistory #lgbtqhistory

The Alice Austen House on Staten Island represents the life and work of Alice Austen (1866-1952), an early American photographer and a woman ahead of her time. She was one of America’s most prolific female photographers and captured over 8,000 images throughout her life. The house was restored to its former glory after years of neglect as interpreted as a traditional historic house museum. In 2015, the museum received a planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (@nehgov) to re-interpret the museum to focus more on the life of Alice Austen and in 2017 updated their National Landmark designation to become a National Site of LGBTQ History. Read more about the changes made at the Alice Austen House and their new interpretation strategies. Link in bio. #MuseumMonday #nysmuseums #lgbtqhistory (📷: Danielle Bennett)

We Are Everywhere. Word on the streets is I do a horrible job of explaining our product. So here goes. Thanks to @onearchives we found LGBTQ news articles from the past few decades to create the liner. You can literally turn the jacket inside out to read all about us in the news. We also found a great lightweight water resistant outer shell and a soft tricot liner to keep you warm. It’s has inside pockets, outside pockets , snaps and some other shit I forgot. Hope you like it! #lockwood51 #queerhistory #lgbtqhistory

Lily Parr was a fierce opponent on the field and actually broke the arms of goalies who dared to block her shots. Women's football (or soccer for our American listeners) was still in its infancy when Lily stepped into the field which meant she frequently competed against (and beat) men's teams. Remember her next time someone tells you you play like a girl! 😉 . . . #womenshistory #lilyparr #herstorylessons #herstorylesson #lgbtqhistory #lgbtq #queerstory #womeninsports #femaleathletes #herstory #britishhistory
