gayinthe80s. Still looking for Christmas present ideas? How about 'Gay in the 80s'

Still looking for Christmas present ideas? How about 'Gay in the 80s' - the book of the blog/Instagram page by me, Colin Clews. It looks at events in the UK, USA and Australia in what I believe to be a pivotal era in queer history. These include the rise of the New Right in the USA; Section 28 in the UK and the fight for the decriminalisation of homosexuality in the majority of Australian states. And, of course, the unfolding AIDS crisis overlay all of this and responses to this are covered in great detail. But it wasn't all doom and gloom. Our profile and participation in areas such as television, film, music and literature increased enormously and this too is covered in detail. You can see a complete list of contents as well as read a section of the book at www.gayinthe80s.com/book. £14.99 at all good bookshops such as @gaysthewordbookshop . Sadly, not available outside the UK at present, although a downloadable version is available at the aforementioned address. #lgbt #lgbtq #pride #lesbian #gay #bi #bisexual #trans #transgender #gaypride #gaycommunity #gayrights #queerrights #queer #history #gaysofinstagram #instagay #gaybook #gayblog #80s #lesbianofinstagram #instaqueer #instatrans #instabi #queerhistory #gayhistory #lgbthistory #queerfilm

I absolutely love this process shot of section 1 of my Sappho chain comissioned by @thebowescentre - she's the biggest papercut I've ever made, so big she didn't event fit on my work table at my studio! I'm proper proud of her Image description: human sized female looking figure lying on a white table top, cut from a single giant sheet of purple paper. Her Grecian looking gown and feature are rendered in hundreds of tiny cut out heart shapes and the paper has been slightly folded in places to give the appearance of flowing fabric Thanks to everyone who support me to make her The Bowes Centre, The Bowes Museum, Ampersand Inventions and Rashida Davidson #paper #palerlove #paperart #queerart #queer #queerhistory #lgbtqhistory #sappho #artists #thisiswhatnonbinarylookslike #nonbinary #kirigami #origami #paperchain #heritage #thebowesmuseum @thebowesmuseum

In 2018/2019, #TotallyOutrightDurham empowered participants to be community organizers through art. That group conceptualized an exhibition of images from Durham Region’s queer history at The Robert McLaughlin Gallery. “Come out, come out” is that exhibition: we are seeking images that represent local, queer histories and stories. The project aims to challenge this act of omission from the historical record by including these previously untold stories in the Thomas Bouckley Collection and promoting the further inclusion of photographs from marginalized communities. Submissions are open now until March 22nd: http://rmg.on.ca/events/call-for-images/ #callforimages #callforsubmissions #queerhistory #arquives #queergeographies #durhamregion #photogaphy #lgbtq

Painter and lithographer #PrentissTaylor , Born December 13, 1907 * “With the first magic feeling of the crayon on the fine grain of the stone, I knew that I was at home in lithography.” * * Painter and lithographer Prentiss Taylor, collaborator with poet Langston Hughes in publishing work on Harlem Renaissance, was born in Washington, D.C. Taylor studied at the Art Students League and was taught by Charles H. Hawthorne in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and was linked to Aaron Copland after the two met in the summer of 1928. Copland began sending Taylor letters in November that year, and by Spring of 1929 a romance had been consummated. “It’s always a dangerous business to write the kind of letter I sent you,” Copland confided in March, 1929. “Now that I know how you took it, I don’t regret having sent it.” While Copland’s letters have largely been made available for public consumption, Taylor’s are less so because the two fell out of touch while Copland lived overseas in France. As Copland writes in one of his last letters to Taylor, he wished Prentiss was there to be his “sole diversion.” * * Portrait of Prentiss Taylor by (Carl Van Vechten, 1880-1964), © 1930’s * #therelevantqueer #queerculture #queerhistory #aaroncopland #photography #painter #lithographer #December13 #queerpeople #lgbtq #lgbtqia #gayculture #gayman #carlvanvechten #uncoveringqueerstories #queerheritage #hiddenstories #1930 #queermen #homosexual #queerunderground #todayinqueerhistory #queeridentity #importantqueerstories #queerrepresentation @ia_troy_wise @5by5forever #troywise #rickguzman

Y'all, the National Park Service published a study in 2016 of LGBTQ+ American history online where anybody can read it /for free/. It talks about the importance of preserving queer history, adding and preserving more queer historic landmarks, and educating people about queer history and how we interpret it. It also makes a point to include under-represented queer communities like two-spirit, transgender, Latino/a, African American, Asian Pacific Islander, and bisexual people. This is a really bad summary, but research like this is super important and I'll put a link to this in my bio #nps #nationalparkservice #queerhistory #lgbtq
