BATMAN is (not) Gay!
Did you know?
In 2005, DC comics sent a “cease and desist” letter to both Mark Chamberlain (the artist of the above image) and Kathleen Cullen Fine Art’s studio telling them to pull all artwork depicting the DC characters.
Due to copyright infringement (DC owns Batman’s image), DC and Chamberlain eventually settled on displaying the images but not selling them.

LGBTQ* Stories of Survival
“I’m living proof that Hitler didn’t win.
I’m aware of that every day.” The speaker is Friedrich-Paul von Groszheim. (pictured above) At the age of eighty-eight, this charming gay man celebrates his birthday twice a year. “You never know,” he says.
One can hardly imagine the suffering he endured. Von Groszheim was among 230 men arrested in Lübeck in the course of a single evening in 1937. The police hauled him from his home and imprisoned him for ten months. He was released, but re-arrested. This time, the Nazi authorities forced him to choose between castration, or incarceration at the concentration camp in Sachsenhausen. He submitted to castration.
His nightmare had not ended, however. In 1943, von Groszheim was arrested a third time, and was put into a satellite camp of Neuengamme. He survived that ordel, but half a century would have to pass before he started to tell his story.

LGBTQ* Documentary Film History You Should Know
CBS’s “The Homosexual” (1967)
*Trigger Warning: Video shows homosexuality as social and mental disease as well as showcases homosexuals as pedophiles and criminals in the film
Anchored by Mike Wallace, who passed away this week. Wallace represented a fair voice and provided narrative both fair and far more progressive than most people showed at such at time. (Remember, homosexuality was still concerned a mental illness at this time and this documentary predates the Stonewall Riots)
