    Making the GOP a Little More Gay

    "Gay" and "Republican" might seem like identities that don't really go together, but to the Log Cabin Republicans, that is exactly who they are. The origins of the Log Cabin Republicans, though, are about as far from what you are probably imagining as you can get. Reverend Raymond Broshears worked tirelessly for the rights of LGBTQ+ people, the elderly, and sex workers in San Francisco. He was also the progenitor of the Log Cabin Republicans. Buckle up because this one is a wild ride. A huge thank you to Sam from Labor Jawn for joining me last minute! You can check them out wherever you get your podcasts.

    [Sidebar] The Canned Heat Wave of 1963

    There is quite a bit of disagreement regarding how to handle the results of our modern opioid epidemic. In Philadelphia, Mayor Cherelle Parker, amidst heavy criticism, "cleaned up" one of the largest encampments where people lived and used out in the open. This is not Philadelphia's first brush with a neighborhood overwhelmed by addiction. In 1963, 31 people mysteriously died all over Philadelphia's Skid Row neighborhood. You might find what and who was at fault surprising.Further reading: https://6abc.com/kensington-ave-homeless-encampment-clean-up-philadelphia/14776420/https://billypenn.com/2024/05/08/kensington-encampment-cleanup-reactions/https://ldi.upenn.edu/our-work/research-updates/the-origins-of-the-opioid-epidemic/https://hiddencityphila.org/2017/09/skid-row-deaths-of-1963-echoes-todays-opioid-crisis/Keep the conversation going on our Substack (https://open.substack.com/pub/dlistersofhistory/p/history-of-abortion-access-in-the?r=3hh72u&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&showWelcomeOnShare=true)!(You don't need a Substack account to subscribe)Thank you to April Keez for the use of the songs "Misfit" and "Grow Up" from the Album Mountainview.

    It's me, hi, I'm the problem, it's me cover
    It's me, hi, I'm the problem, it's me

    The Chevalier d'Eon is one of those historical figures who pop up now and again, mostly because no one knows what to do with them. Were they a trans woman? A man masquerading as a woman for political reasons? Outside of salacious curiosity about their sex and gender, do they actually matter?This week, Fayge and Mazal dive into d'Eon's life to explore how we talk about queer historical figures respectfully. D'Eon was also just a wild individual outside of any questions of gender.Further Reading:The Chevalier d'Eon and His Worlds— (https://www.scribd.com/document/552684596/The-Chevalier-d-Eon-and-his-Worlds)This book is a compilation of papers by experts in various fields, each trying to untangle d'Eon's story in their own way. Some of these papers are rather old and, as such, contain outdated language for transgender people.There are a few other books on d'Eon, but I found the variety of opinions helpful in better understanding the debates surrounding them.Our Interview (https://smartlink.ausha.co/d-listers-of-history-3/18-queer-history-feat-lee-wind) with Lee Wind and his website (https://www.leewind.org/)Our episode on the Public Universal Friend (https://smartlink.ausha.co/d-listers-of-history-3/5-public-universal-friend)Our episode on Chevalier de Saint-Georges (https://smartlink.ausha.co/d-listers-of-history-3/27-the-famous-composer-france-forgot)Sex and Gender: What's the Difference? from PsychCentral (https://psychcentral.com/health/sex-vs-gender)Sex and Gender Identity from Planned Parenthood (https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/gender-identity/sex-gender-identity)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Keep the conversation going on our Substack (https://open.substack.com/pub/dlistersofhistory/p/history-of-abortion-access-in-the?r=3hh72u&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&showWelcomeOnShare=true)!(You don't need a Substack account to subscribe)Thank you to April Keez for the use of the songs "Misfit" and "Grow Up" from the Album Mountainview.

    “I hold this slow, and daily, tampering with the mysteries of the brain to be immeasurably worse than any torture of the body.” Charles Dickens, 1842Eastern State Penitentiary dominates Fairmount Ave in Philadelphia. The physical structure is intimidating, but the stories of the horrors that happened there are even more terrifying. Interestingly, though, the people who founded Eastern State and the man who designed it, John Haviland, thought they were creating a more humane and effective prison.They were wrong. This week, Mazal and Fayge look at the life and career of the architect John Haviland, the legacy of his most famous structure, and the psychological impacts of solitary confinement.Further Reading: (Some links below are affiliate links that earn a commission for purchases made at no additional cost to you)The Prison at Philadelphia Cherry Hill by Teeters and Shearer (https://archive.org/details/prisonatphiladel0000teet/page/n7/mode/2up)(Considered by many to be THE text on Eastern State Penitentiary)Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Structure Report (https://www.easternstate.org/research/history-eastern-state/historic-reports)Eastern State Penitentiary: Crucible of Good Intentions by: Norman Bruce Johnston et al (https://amzn.to/49YBnLh)Trial and Error at Allegheny: The Western State Penitentiary 1818-1838 by: Eugene E.

    Making the GOP a Little More Gay

    "Gay" and "Republican" might seem like identities that don't really go together, but to the Log Cabin Republicans, that is exactly who they are. The origins of the Log Cabin Republicans, though, are about as far from what you are probably imagining as you can get. Reverend Raymond Broshears worked tirelessly for the rights of LGBTQ+ people, the elderly, and sex workers in San Francisco. He was also the progenitor of the Log Cabin Republicans. Buckle up because this one is a wild ride. A huge thank you to Sam from Labor Jawn for joining me last minute! You can check them out wherever you get your podcasts.

    [Sidebar] The Canned Heat Wave of 1963

    There is quite a bit of disagreement regarding how to handle the results of our modern opioid epidemic. In Philadelphia, Mayor Cherelle Parker, amidst heavy criticism, "cleaned up" one of the largest encampments where people lived and used out in the open. This is not Philadelphia's first brush with a neighborhood overwhelmed by addiction. In 1963, 31 people mysteriously died all over Philadelphia's Skid Row neighborhood. You might find what and who was at fault surprising.Further reading: https://6abc.com/kensington-ave-homeless-encampment-clean-up-philadelphia/14776420/https://billypenn.com/2024/05/08/kensington-encampment-cleanup-reactions/https://ldi.upenn.edu/our-work/research-updates/the-origins-of-the-opioid-epidemic/https://hiddencityphila.org/2017/09/skid-row-deaths-of-1963-echoes-todays-opioid-crisis/Keep the conversation going on our Substack (https://open.substack.com/pub/dlistersofhistory/p/history-of-abortion-access-in-the?r=3hh72u&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&showWelcomeOnShare=true)!(You don't need a Substack account to subscribe)Thank you to April Keez for the use of the songs "Misfit" and "Grow Up" from the Album Mountainview.

    It's me, hi, I'm the problem, it's me cover
    It's me, hi, I'm the problem, it's me

    The Chevalier d'Eon is one of those historical figures who pop up now and again, mostly because no one knows what to do with them. Were they a trans woman? A man masquerading as a woman for political reasons? Outside of salacious curiosity about their sex and gender, do they actually matter?This week, Fayge and Mazal dive into d'Eon's life to explore how we talk about queer historical figures respectfully. D'Eon was also just a wild individual outside of any questions of gender.Further Reading:The Chevalier d'Eon and His Worlds— (https://www.scribd.com/document/552684596/The-Chevalier-d-Eon-and-his-Worlds)This book is a compilation of papers by experts in various fields, each trying to untangle d'Eon's story in their own way. Some of these papers are rather old and, as such, contain outdated language for transgender people.There are a few other books on d'Eon, but I found the variety of opinions helpful in better understanding the debates surrounding them.Our Interview (https://smartlink.ausha.co/d-listers-of-history-3/18-queer-history-feat-lee-wind) with Lee Wind and his website (https://www.leewind.org/)Our episode on the Public Universal Friend (https://smartlink.ausha.co/d-listers-of-history-3/5-public-universal-friend)Our episode on Chevalier de Saint-Georges (https://smartlink.ausha.co/d-listers-of-history-3/27-the-famous-composer-france-forgot)Sex and Gender: What's the Difference? from PsychCentral (https://psychcentral.com/health/sex-vs-gender)Sex and Gender Identity from Planned Parenthood (https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/gender-identity/sex-gender-identity)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Keep the conversation going on our Substack (https://open.substack.com/pub/dlistersofhistory/p/history-of-abortion-access-in-the?r=3hh72u&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&showWelcomeOnShare=true)!(You don't need a Substack account to subscribe)Thank you to April Keez for the use of the songs "Misfit" and "Grow Up" from the Album Mountainview.

    “I hold this slow, and daily, tampering with the mysteries of the brain to be immeasurably worse than any torture of the body.” Charles Dickens, 1842Eastern State Penitentiary dominates Fairmount Ave in Philadelphia. The physical structure is intimidating, but the stories of the horrors that happened there are even more terrifying. Interestingly, though, the people who founded Eastern State and the man who designed it, John Haviland, thought they were creating a more humane and effective prison.They were wrong. This week, Mazal and Fayge look at the life and career of the architect John Haviland, the legacy of his most famous structure, and the psychological impacts of solitary confinement.Further Reading: (Some links below are affiliate links that earn a commission for purchases made at no additional cost to you)The Prison at Philadelphia Cherry Hill by Teeters and Shearer (https://archive.org/details/prisonatphiladel0000teet/page/n7/mode/2up)(Considered by many to be THE text on Eastern State Penitentiary)Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Structure Report (https://www.easternstate.org/research/history-eastern-state/historic-reports)Eastern State Penitentiary: Crucible of Good Intentions by: Norman Bruce Johnston et al (https://amzn.to/49YBnLh)Trial and Error at Allegheny: The Western State Penitentiary 1818-1838 by: Eugene E.
