SPECIAL: (TIME-Warp) The Controversal and Eye-Opening CBS Reports "The Homosexuals" aired 51 Yrs ago!

"The Homosexuals" is a 1967 episode of the documentary television series CBS Reports. The hour-long broadcast featured a discussion of a number of topics related to homosexuality and homosexuals. Mike Wallace anchored the episode, which aired on March 7, 1967. Although this was the first network documentary dealing with the topic of homosexuality, it was not the first televised in the United States. That was The Rejected, produced and aired in 1961 on KQED, a public television station out of San Francisco.Three years in the making, "The Homosexuals" went through two producers and multiple revisions. The episode included interviews with several gay men, psychiatrists, legal experts and cultural critics, interspersed with footage of a gay bar and a police sex sting. "The Homosexuals" garnered mixed critical response. The network received praise from some quarters and criticism from others for even airing the program. Just imagine, 2 years later, Stonewall happened and the Gay Liberation Movement began!

(TIME WARP): What's an Internet?

Remember 1994?  But apparently it was a magical time of pre-crazy Mel Gibson, Dems getting trounced in midterm elections, and ... talking heads on the teevee trying to explain something called the "Internet." Observe as Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel wonder aloud: "What is the Internet anyway?!" Some sort of "giant computer network!" It'll probably never catch on. Clip unearthed by the folks over at Buzzfeed, via HuffPo.

OVTV: (TIME Warp) 42 Years ago, When Original Gay Rebel, Sal Mineo, Risked his career and Life!

On February 12, 1976, OUT Actor Sal Mineo is stabbed to death in Hollywood, California. Mineo was parking his car behind his apartment when neighbors heard his cries for help. Some described a white man with brown hair fleeing the scene. By the time they reached Mineo, he was almost dead from a deep wound to his chest. He died minutes later, as detailed in Michael Michaud's Book, Sal and James Franco's film adaption of the same name.

Sal Mineo was a famous teen actor in the 1950s. He co-starred with James Dean in both Rebel Without a Cause and Giant. The transition to adult roles did not come easily for Mineo, but he later appeared in films such as The Longest Day and Escape From the Planet of the Apes, and consistently performed guest spots on television series. On the night he was killed, Mineo was returning from rehearsing for a play.

(TIME-Warp): Whitney is a HIT!

In 1991, we were at the verge of the Gulf war, so when it was time to watch the Superbowl and Whitney Houston sang the national anthem, the energy was filled and the mood changed. Whitney was such a HIT, that they released this song as a single! It was revealed recently  that she Lip synched it. No wonder the song was released in such a hurry.

(TIME Warp) MLK and Gay Rights!


From Queerty  Jan 19, 2009:

Unfortunately, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whose birthday we honor today, was assassinated before the gay rights movement became a force on the American stage, so we’ll never know for sure what he may have done to further the cause of gay and lesbian rights had he lived. The person who knew him best, his wife, Coretta Scott King, was certain, however, that King’s legacy was equality for all. To that end, she dedicated much of her time to LGBT equality issues before her death in 2006.

OVTV: (TIME WARP) The curse of 'Man and baby': Athena, and the birth of a legend!

L'enfant, better known as Man and Baby is a 1987 photographic poster depicting a male model (Adam Perry) holding a young baby. The image, photographed by Spencer Rowell, was published and distributed in the 1980s by British company Athena Posters. The image reportedly sold over 5 million copies, making it among the best-selling posters ever. The photograph was said to herald the "sensitive but sexy New Man" aesthetic.

In a 2004 British television documentary about L'Enfant, The Model, the Poster and 3,000 Women, the baby was identified as Greek-Cypriot Stelios Havatzias. Stelios currently lives in Limassol Cyprus with his family and works as a lawyer. Perry claimed that as a consequence of his poster fame, he had slept with 3,000 women.

(Time-Warp) When Unions Swept the UK, 12 Years ago this Week!

In 2003, the British government announced plans to introduce civil partnerships which would allow same-sex couples the rights and responsibilities resulting from marriage. The Civil Partnership Bill was introduced into the House of Lords on March 30, 2004. After considering amendments made by the House of Commons, it was passed by the House of Lords, its final legislative hurdle, on November 17, 2004, and received Royal Assent on November 18. The Act came into force on 5 December 2005, and same-sex, but not opposite-sex, couples were able to form the civil partnerships from 19 December 2005 in Northern Ireland, 20 December 2005 in Scotland and 21 December 2005 in England and Wales. Separate provisions were included in the first Finance Act 2005 to allow regulations to be made to amend tax laws to give the same tax advantages and disadvantages to couples in civil partnerships as apply to married couples.

(TIME-WARP) The Castro vs. AIDS: The '80s in Pictures!

San Francisco's gay-centric Castro was equal amounts thrilling and frightening in the 1980s. While the neighborhood attracted LGBT people from around the world, AIDS was decimating the population. Even as the residents fought back, protesting for research and education, life went on, and the Castro's 24-hour party never abated. In the following pictures by Thomas Alleman, part of the "Dancing in the Dragon's Jaws: Gay San Francisco, 1985-1988" exhibit at the San Francisco Public Library that opens on World AIDS Day, you can see the men and women who lived, loved, and fought for their lives during that heady time.

(Time Warp) 39 years ago when MILK was Silenced!

The Moscone–Milk assassinations were the killings of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, who were shot and killed in San Francisco City Hall by former Supervisor Dan White on November 27, 1978. White was angry that Moscone had refused to re-appoint him to his seat on the Board of Supervisors, from which White had just resigned, and that Milk had lobbied heavily against his re-appointment. These events helped bring national notice to then-Board President Dianne Feinstein, who became mayor of San Francisco and eventually U.S. Senator for California.

White was subsequently convicted of voluntary manslaughter, rather than of first degree murder. The verdict sparked the "White Night riots" in San Francisco, and led to the state of California abolishing the diminished capacity criminal defense. It also led to the urban legend of the "Twinkie defense", as many media reports had incorrectly described the defense as having attributed White's diminished capacity to the effects of sugar-laden junk food. White committed suicide in 1985, a little more than a year after his release from prison.

(TIME-WARP) Remembering a Gay Sailor Murdered in Japan 25 Years ago!

by Mike Spradley

It was early November 1992. I had just moved into my new apartment in San Diego. As I sorted through boxes, the television was playing the national evening news. There are moments in your life that you never forget. I had no idea a moment that would shape my life forever was about to occur. As the evening anchor said these words, my blood ran cold: "The U.S. Navy is investigating the murder of Petty Officer Allen R. Schindler in Sasebo, Japan." I immediately ran from the other room to catch the rest of the news report. As I caught a quick glimpse of his photo, my mind no longer registered the rest of the words spoken.

I dove into a box to locate a small piece of laminated paper. I had to confirm the spelling of the name of my friend who was now dead. Allen, who had been stationed in San Diego, had become my friend. Before he shipped out, he had given his eclectic group of compadres his military address. He begged his friends to write him. Between college and work, I had never gotten around to sending him even a postcard.
