LGBTQ* People You Should Know
GLADYS BENTLEY (picture NY, circa 1930s)
 
Bentley flirted with double entendres in her music and dabbled in double dress in her day to day life. Her blues music and sultry lyrics dared anyone to question their true meaning while she flirted with female patrons as she sang. She frequented speakeasies like The Clam House in Harlem and caused a bit of a stir when she married her white New Jersey girlfriend in a civil wedding ceremony.
 
Much of Bentley’s life would later be subject to the fear/hate of a McCarthy run system in the late 1940s’/1950s.

#sometimes I think that dean and samaus had a ~thing~ #I mean think about it #it’s not like anyone else in their year would notice #hell they could probably have had sex in the dorm while harry ron and neville were there and no one would’ve noticed #because harry would have been angsting and ron would have been thinking about banging hermione and neville would have been too caught up in a cloud of his own BAMFness to hear #in fact this is my new headcanon #like #they just made out all the time and fooled around a little once they got older and held hands in the hallways and NO ONE NOTICED LOL BECAUSE HARRY FUCKING POTTER WITH HIS TEENAGE EMOTIONS AND HETEROSEXUALITY OVERSHADOWED ALL THE GOOD TIMES #but like they’re also bff too #and after the batter of hogwarts was over and they’d fought side by side they got married and adopted a pygmy puff and they named it after harry because they really are quite fond of harry and all that #and dean never lets sameaus cook lol #and sometimes they’ll laugh over that one time they broke up and dean dated ginny and giggle over the fact that now she’s boning the guy who never noticed their love

hiiill-arious!

excuse me.

I’m sitting in the train station waiting to go to Jersey.  I’m hungry but there’s no food.  However, there is free WiFi, so excuse my Tumblr junkiness.  In all fairness, I have been absent for some time now.
