LGBTQ* History You (Probably) Never Heard Of
New Orleans, the Fire and the Eraser
* Trigger Warning: murder, arson, homophobia, church refusal
The (arson?/fire?) made the newspaper on one day. After details were shared the day after the fire, the story never made New Orleans’ print again.
Filed by Jesse Monteagudo
On June 24, 1973 an arsonist started a fire that consumed the UpStairs Lounge, a second-floor gay bar in New Orleans’s French Quarter. The UpStairs Lounge Fire was both the deadliest fire in the history of New Orleans and the largest mass-killing of gay people in the US.
Among the 31 men and one woman who died in the fire were members of the local Metropolitan Community Church, who frequented the Lounge after services for its Sunday “beer bust.” (One particularly grisly photo was of MCC Pastor William R. Larson, who burned to death while trying to escape through a window.)
The UpStairs Lounge Fire showed New Orleans at its homophobic worst as many families refused to claim the victims’ bodies and most local churches refused to conduct their funerals. MCC founder Troy Perry and other activists rushed to New Orleans to help bury the victims who, as many locals thought, “got what they deserved.”
this is so sweet!
It’s easier for a 14 year old girl to keep her baby than it is for them to keep theirs. Let’s just dwell on this for a second.
i think i’ve reblogged this 3 times.
Never not reblog this
I’m almost in tears.. and I am at school
I will always reblog this!
fuck society. this is as beautiful as any mother and father raising a child.
THIS IS SO CUTE. Why does it matter how the kid is raised? The kid is clearly happy and that’s where it is all about.
this is just wonderful…this is a perfectly happy family.
if you find something wrong in this you should reconsider your beliefs in life..
from left to right;
I am afraid to hold my boyfriend’s hand.
My friend’s parents sent her away.
I found death threats in my locker.
I submitted to electroshock therapy.
I lost half my friends after coming out.
My grandmother sends me hate mail.
My school won’t let me take my date to prom.
I am not here anymore.
My dad tried to beat it out of me.
No one is proud of me.
“I am not here anymore”.
That made my heart just drop….
I feel like most of these have happened to me :/
I finished writing this today. My sister’s private Baptist college is making all the faculty members sign a mission statement saying they will not tolerate homosexuality. It’s beyond wrong, and it served as the inspiration for this song.
As always, reblogs and likes are much appreciated. :)
