This was in a time when the word transgender didn’t exists, Java was known as “The Prettiest Man on Earth”. At that time in Los Angeles, a law called Rule #9 made it illegal to “Impersonate by means of costume or dress a person of the opposite sex” and was used frequently by authorities to break up shows to arrest gay and trans people.

“Every Human Being possesses the Power of Choice, God’s Greatest Gift to us All. Yes, God could have kept that gift for himself but instead we have all been given the freedom to enjoy this Powerful gift. So. my Question is? Why are we constantly wasting time trying to convince others to LOVE each other rather than to HATE. We constantly do this, knowing that No one Person has Power over another persons feelings, emotions, beliefs or thoughts. Does ANY ONE Person truly understand the depth an individuals LOVE or HATE”.
ORLANDO, Florida June 12, 2016: If this BASTARD had a problem seeing Two Men Kissing…then why couldn’t he just have looked the other way instead of conjuring up such an Evil deed. He like so many others that walk this Earth, must be Spawns of Satan. I will NEVER as long as I live say that Demons name out loud or to myself. And. As Respect to those that were slaughtered, I will make it my business to find out each & Everyone of those murdered, First Name & Last Name in order to give Justice, Dignity, Cause & Love for their Precious Loss of Their Life. May Each and Everyone of The Victims, Rest In Peace, Forever and Ever, Amen.

From a Paris Match issue on Harlem in 1970. Jack Garofalo photographed the neighborhood in July of that year.
1970 was such a crossroads for fashion too. The men in the top and bottom photos might be only a decade apart but their clothing seems to belong to two really different eras.

Iggy Azalea Blasts Azealia Banks for Being a ‘Bigot’ and ‘Bully’
Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea are reigniting their beef. After Azealia put Iggy on blast during her emotional interview with Hot 97, the “Fancy” rapper has fired back.
Azealia trashed her rap rival, who was nominated for four Grammys. “That Iggy Azalea shit is not better than any fu**in’ black girl that’s rapping today,” she told Ebro and Peter Rosenberg. “The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence… Iggy Azalea’s not excellent.”
She broke down in tears while discussing the “culture smudging” of America. “When they give these Grammys out, all it says to white kids is, ‘You’re great. You’re amazing. You can do whatever you put your mind to.’ And it says to black kids, ‘You don’t have shit. You don’t own shit, not even the shit you created yourself.’ And it makes me upset.”

“..I’m heartbroken! Poor Little Child”.
Larry and Carri Williams of Sedro-Woolley of Washington State, were both found guilty of neglecting, abusing, and ultimately killing 13-year-old Hana Williams
- The couple left Hana to die from hypothermia and starvation in their backyard in May 2011
- Step-brother Immanuel testified he and Hana were beaten with sticks, hosed down, forced to eat frozen food and locked in closets as punishment
An autopsy showed that Hana died of hypothermia that was aggravated by chronic gastritis and malnutrition. Her bone-thin body was covered in bruises, including a lump on her shaved head, and red bloody markings on her hips, elbows and face. Defense lawyers argued that questionable parenting practices don’t necessarily amount to a crime. Hana is believed to have been 13, but no documentation of her birth in Ethiopia was available. The trial was postponed several times and her body was exhumed in January. The jury began deliberating last week. On Monday, they announced their decision to convict both the Williams’ of first degree manslaughter.
The class A felonies can mean life in prison and/or $50,000 fines, according to the Skagit Valley Herald. The jury was unable to decide if Larry Williams was guilty of homicide by abuse. In the end, only Carri Williams was convicted on that charge. Both Larry and Carri were also convicted of first degree assault on Hana’s adopted brother Immanuel. Tests on Hana’s teeth and bones gave varying estimates and experts were unable to agree on her age. Her age was significant because the homicide by abuse charge applies only if the victim was younger than 16, though experts were unable to say for sure if she was or was not. She was adopted in 2008.
