Received on June 29,2019. This is one of our most #PRIDEFULL moments of my life:
The United States Library of Congress has selected your website (Back2Stonewall.com) for inclusion in the Library’s historic collection of Internet materials related to the LGBTQ+ Studies Web Archive. We consider your website to be an important part of this collection and the historical record.
The Library of Congress preserves important cultural artifacts and provides enduring access to them. The Library’s traditional functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance to foster education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including websites. Our web archives are important because they contribute to the historical record, capturing information that could otherwise be lost. With the growing role of the web as an influential medium, records of historic events could be considered incomplete without materials that were “born digital” and never printed on paper.
In order to properly archive this URL, and potentially other URLs of interest on your site, we may archive both this URL and other portions of your site, including public content that your page links to on third party sites such as Facebook, YouTube, etc. The Library of Congress or its agent will engage in the collection of content from your website at regular intervals and may include it in future collections. The Library will make this collection available to researchers at Library facilities and by special arrangement.
The Library may also make the collection available more broadly by hosting the collection on the Library’s public access website no earlier than one year after our archiving has been completed. The Library hopes that you share its vision of preserving Internet materials and permitting researchers from across the world to access them.
I cannot express in words how much this means to me.
You see. We are a classy dive and HISTORY DOES MATTER!
Let’s start the New Year off right with this lost clip from the Golden Age of Television.
In June of 1962 Julie Andrews, already a Broadway legend (The Boy Friend, My Fair Lady, Camelot), and Carol Burnett, fresh from Once Upon a Mattress (1959) and CBS’s The Garry Moore Show, met on the stage of Carnegie Hall in a hilarious revue by Mike Nichols, broadcast on CBS television. The high point of the evening was a ten-minute “History of Musical Comedy” incorporating snatches of 25 show tunes (including “Loverly”). Burnett won her second Emmy Award for the event. A reunion nine and a half years later (December 1971) was broadcast from Philharmonic Hall in Lincoln Center; on this occasion the climactic medley consisted of fragments of 46 songs, all popular in the interim since their Carnegie Hall partnership.
Now here’s a statement that’s sure to push Bryan Fischer much deeper into the end of the insanity pool.
Recently during Pat Robertson’s The 700 Club show segment called Bring It Online a viewer asked Robertson if it was wrong to refer to male to female transgender individual as “she”. While not directly answering the question Robertson’s reply while not educated on the issue was quite a surprise.
“I don’t understand all that, but I think they are men who are in a woman’s body. It’s very rare, but it’s true. [snip] I don’t think there’s any sin associated with that. I don’t condemn anybody for doing that. [snip] It’s not for you to decide or to judge.”
WOW. Just WOW!
he space time continuum must have been shattered because Pat Robertson was talking almost reasonably.
Super hotand super intelligent LGBT straight ally and advocate Chris Kluwe of the Minnesota Vikings gave an incredibly hilarious and intelligent interview with Stephen Colbert last night talking about the infamous “lustful cockmonster” to describe a Maryland lawmaker, gun control and World of Warcraft troll-on-ork marriage.
Handsome, hunky, intelligent, and passionate about LGBT equality issues Chris Kluwe knocks the images of jock stereotypes in its ass
