REPOST @lgbt_history Note: this picture is NOT from Stonewall. . Picture: Police clash with demonstrators during a protest of the filming of “Cruising,” New York City, July 26, 1979. Photo by Bettye Lane. [TW] . Because of its appearance in the background of PBS’s documentary “The Stonewall Uprising,” this photograph almost universally is incorrectly associated with the 1969 Stonewall Riots. . In reality, the picture is from July 26, 1979, forty years ago today, when, as @nytimes described, “about 1,000 persons marched through a muggy Greenwich Village…protesting the making in New York of the movie ‘Cruising.’” . The film, starring Al Pacino, was loosely based on a novel of the same name by reporter Gerald Walker about a serial killer targeting gay men, and specifically those in the leather scene. Walker’s novel, in turn, was inspired by Gay Liberation stalwart Arthur Bell’s writings on a series of unsolved murders of gay men in the Village. As opposed to Bell’s articles—which sought to draw attention to ongoing hate crimes—“Cruising,” both the novel and the film, portrayed homosexuals “as psychopathic murderers or pathetic victims who invite victimization,” and many believed the film would cause increased anti-queer violence. . Notably, the film’s producer, Jerry Weintraub, did not deny the homophobic perspective of “Cruising,” instead he declared: “We are showing only a segment” of the homosexual community. “But it is a true segment. We are depicting what is really there.” . Many in New York City’s queer community were particularly upset with Mayor Ed Koch’s decision to allow filming of “Cruising” on city streets—in Greenwich Village, no less. Thus, throughout the summer of 1979, queer activists sought to shut down production: for example, activists pointed mirrors from rooftops to ruin lighting, blasted airhorns, and held large rallies and marches. As a result, much of the movie’s audio had to be overdubbed in post-production. . Two months after the movie’s release, a gunman opened fire on The Ramrod—a Greenwich Village leather bar featured in the film—killing two and wounding twelve. #lgbthistory #HavePrideInHistory #Resist #BettyeLane

This week’s #SuperSeventiesSunday highlights another example of history repeating itself. The Fight for Women’s Rights was in full force in the early seventies and Jonathan’s best friend, Starla, is a self-proclaimed “black power, anti-war, women’s-libber, soulshaker” who loves living on the front line of the movements. The question remains: how far have we really come since then... • • • #Repost @lgbt_history with @get_repost ・・・ "WOMEN ARE FURIOUS - WE WILL BE FREE!," Women's Equality Day March, New York City, August 26, 1970.

Phenomenal! (& so honored ) #Repost @lgbt_history : "It’s with profound excitement, gratitude, & pride that we unveil the cover, & announce the upcoming release, of our book, “We Are Everywhere: Protest, Power, and Pride in the History of Queer Liberation” (from @tenspeedpress ). Available for pre-order now via the link in our bio—and we can’t overemphasize how important pre-order sales are—We Are Everywhere comes out, so to speak, on May 7, 2019. . Weaving together intensely researched narrative with more than 300 photographs from over 70 photographers & 20 archives, the book traces the radical history of queer activism in the U.S. from its late 19th-century European roots to the homophiles who made Stonewall possible to the Freaking Fag Revolutionaries & Lesbian Outlaws who built communities & fought an epidemic to the gender warriors who remain on the front lines today. . History, #DavidWojnarowicz wrote, “is made and preserved by & for particular classes of people, [but] a camera in some hands can preserve an alternate history.” Starting there, #WeAreEverywhere shows an alternate history captured by photographers like #DanielNicoletta , #DonaAnnMcAdams , #LynnHarrisBallen , #RobertFisch , #MariettePathyAllen , #SaskiaScheffer , #CarolinaKroon , #HarveyMilk , #FredWMcDarrah , #BettyeLane , #DianaDavies , #LeonardFink , #MarcGeller , #CrawfordBarton , & #NancyTucker , & preserved by archives like @onearchives , @lesbianherstoryarchives , @lambdaarchives , @glbt_history , @gerberhart , @lgbtcenternyc , Houston’s Botts Collection, & Philadelphia’s John Wilcox, Jr. Archives. . Since starting @lgbt_history , we’ve been inspired by the engagement, knowledge, & power among those with whom we interact. We hear from the photographers responsible for, & the people appearing in, the images we post; we get corrected on language & choice of perspective, and we’re pushed toward grassroots histories that delve into the complicated stories not often explored in mainstream lore. We’ve had the privilege of studying queer history while being held accountable by a community that is unafraid to speak its mind. WeAreEverywhere is the result. . We’re really proud of this book & we hope we make you proud”

#throwbackthursday “Blue Collar Trainees at All Craft Program” by #bettyelane New York, circa 1980. The tradeswomen movement might be the most unsung subset of the feminist movement of the late 20th century. Like the feminist movement, it did seem to erupt suddenly, simultaneously, across the country and the world. All at once in the mid-1970s women began demanding access to blue collar jobs that had been the exclusive domain of men, like construction, utility maintenance, driving, dock work, policing and firefighting. #womeninhistory #tradeswoman #tradeswomen #womenintrades #bluecollar #tradeswomenofig #womeninelectricity #womeninconstruction #womeninplumbing #womenwhoweld #womenwhobuild #womenwhomake #diversity #inclusion

#Repost @lesbianherstoryarchives with @get_repost ・・・ It is 1979 here, some 5 years into LHA’s existence. Here are Deborah Edel, Joan Nestle, and Valerie Itnyre, 3 members of the early collective that created the Archives in the apartment at 215 West 92nd street. This is the original maids room- soon the materials would start filling up the living room, the foyer, the spare bedroom, and every inch of wall and floor space until it was clear that we needed our own building.

📸💖Love to allll lesbian photographers. "Bettye Lane was one of the top news photographers of her time and one of the early documentarians of the feminist, and lesbian & gay rights movements. She was an early supporter of LHA and her work can be found here and in several other major archival collections. Like many photographers Bettye did not always like her own photo taken but she was caught at work with her camera by Paula Grant at a Lesbian Feminist Liberation meeting in New York City circa 1972."

#Repost @lgbt_history ( @get_repost ) ・・・ Pictures: (1 ) Bettye Lane (September 19, 1930 - September 19, 2012 ), center, with Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, New York City, 1988. Photo by Morgan Gwenwald, c/o @lesbianherstoryarchives (2 ) Police clash with demonstrators during a protest of the filming of “Cruising,” New York City, July 26 1979. Photo © Bettye Lane. . Bettye Lane, who was born eighty-seven years ago today and who died on her eighty-second birthday, was an American photojournalist whose vast catalog of photographs of the feminist, gay rights, and civil rights movements in the 1970s and 1980s contains some of the era's most iconic images. . In 1970, while working for The National Observer, Lane covered the first Women's Strike for Equality, a massive march down Fifth Avenue organized by the National Organization for Women; she became obsessed with documenting the movement. From then on, whether she got paid or not, Lane captured virtually every major moment in the liberation fights in New York City and many others throughout the country. . Without Bettye Lane and a handful of other photojournalists (including Diana Davies, Fred W. McDarrah, Kay Tobin, and Richard Wandel ), the record of the American queer liberation movement in the years directly following Stonewall would largely be lost. We all are in Lane’s debt. . Ironically, despite her role in capturing and cataloging queer history, Lane’s legacy is distorted by a major inaccuracy: notwithstanding erroneous claims to the contrary, Lane was not at the Stonewall Riots, nor are any of her pictures labeled as such. Because a number of her pictures were used as B-roll in the PBS documentary “The Stonewall Rebellion,” however, many incorrectly assume that Lane was at Stonewall itself. (See, for example, the second picture in this post, which often is mislabeled as Stonewall, but is in fact an image from a July 1979 protest against the filming of “Cruising.” ) #lgbthistory #HavePrideInHistory #Resist #BettyeLane

LESBIAN RIGHTS *IS* A WOMENS ISSUE! --N.O.W. (National Organization of Women ) "...Other straight feminists were unwilling to confront what Charlotte Bunch called their “heterosexual privilege” to express solidarity with the concerns of lesbians. Betty Friedan and the New York chapter of NOW led a purge of the “lavender menace” in 1970, declaring lesbian feminists unwelcome in the movement they helped build. Though Friedan later revised her position, the gay/straight split fractured the movement. Eventually, however, straight feminists began to acknowledge that lesbians faced many of the same problems in employment, housing, and obtaining credit as other women; obtaining parenting rights was even more challenging for them. At the same time, lesbians also struggled for parity within the larger gay rights movement, where gay men tended to dominate the agenda."
