June 27 is the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York City which occurred in 1969. This was a turning point in LGBT history and marked the beginning of Gay Pride events which now occur worldwide. This is a trailer about a movie that documents and discusses the events.
Today, May 22, is Harvey Milk day, established in 2010. He was the first openly gay man to be elected into public office in a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and passed a strict gay rights ordinance for the city, but was then assassinated by fellow supervisor Dan White.
Dan White’s case became famous when he used what is now termed the “Twinkie Defense.” That is, he claimed that he could not control his actions because of a severe depression he was experiencing, related to the overconsumption of sugary foods such as Twinkies. Thus, as opposed to first degree (double) murder as the evidence would suggest, Milk’s assassin, White, was convicted of voluntary manslaughter and only served 5 years in prison.

Thanks for the note! I think a lot of people at the time had racist intentions, it was right around the time of the eugenics movement so it was far from unordinary unfortunately.
I’m glad you all have enjoyed my little hobby so much :) I apologize for the recent influx of reposts, I generally like to make original content for this blog (as you can see from my earlier posts) but I’ve been studying abroad for this last semester and have been much too busy on this adventure to put that much time into it. However, I promise to have more original content after Christmas when things start settling down for me.
So in thanks for following, I invite you to ask me anything you like and if it’s not completely offensive I’ll answer it :)
So, anything you’d like to know about me or my knowledge of random sex trivia?
