9 Million (via Queer Landia)

Remember, 9 million who will come out and say so…
And we’ve still been around since humans have been humans. Maybe even before.

9 Million A new study by The Williams Institute of the UCLA School of Law shows 3.5% of American adults are gay, lesbian, or bisexual, including 1.8% of American adults who are bisexual. From the study:  The analysis suggest that there are more than 8 million adults in the U.S. who are LGB, comprising 3.5% of the adult population.  This is split nearly evenly between lesbian/gay and bisexual individuals, 1.7% and 1.8% respectively.  There are also nearly 7 … Read More

We’re here, we’re queer, and we’ve been here forever.

Five thousand years after he died, the first known gay caveman has emerged into the daylight.

According to archaeologists, the way he was buried suggests that he was of a different sexual persuasion.

The skeleton of the late Stone Age man, unearthed during excavations in the Czech Republic, is said to date back to between 2900 and 2500 BC.

His body was positioned in the grave like a woman, but his head was pointing in the direction reserved for men.  Items buried with him have only been seen in the graves of females.

While still only speculation, the idea fits the evidence.  Burial rituals were very important to the people of this era, and we have learned a lot about their culture from their remains, and what they chose to include in the graves.  The position of the person in society influenced the burial, and items interred with the deceased spoke to the life they lived.

This man was buried in such a way as to suggest he might have been what we today would call homosexual, or transgender.  He was buried with respect and honor, with concern for his journey to the afterlife.  He clearly was not an outcast, and was treated with the respect anyone in his village would have received.

We’re here, we’re queer, and we’ve been here forever.  It’s so simple, even the cavemen understood it.  It’s a shame so many “modern” homo sapiens don’t.

Shuttle Retires At 30

Leave a comment

From the first flights of the Enterprise, to the final voyage of Endeavour,  it’s been a grand 30 years.  Over a hundred missions, the construction of the International Space Station, the launching and servicing of the Hubble Space Telescope, and the tragic loss of two Orbiters and 14 astronauts,  the Space Shuttle Program has always been a part of my adult life.  It’s difficult to imagine it not being there any longer.

What’s Real, and what’s imaginary? The Internet might not help
