Happy International Women’s Day! Have you spotted these earrings in our new Love and Legacy exhibition? Earrings such as these are commonly referred to as mourning jewellery. The Victorian era is well known for its macabre fascination with death and mourning, which manifested itself in mourning dress and personal adornment. Mourning jewellery was traditionally crafted by middle-class women as a meditative act of mourning for a loved one. Earrings, brooches and necklaces were crafted from the hair of deceased loved ones and worn by the mourner.⠀

#30daysofgay I can't do a month of gay posts and not include the Queen herself. Well... some events surrounding Stonewall also, but yanno.
Regrann from @lgbt_history - “I don't know what I am if I'm not a woman." – Marsha P. Johnson, 1971 [TW]
In “Refugees from Amerika: A Gay Manifesto” (1969), Carl Wittman spoke of those who broke gender boundaries—and specifically those who today likely would identify as transgender women—as the Gay Liberation Movement’s “first martyrs,” and Stonewall-era queer revolutionaries often built communities around these martyrs.
In New York City, Sylvia Rivera was known to literally lay down in traffic for the cause, and she famously became the first member of the Gay Activists Alliance to be arrested for her activism. In Chicago, the November 1970 murder of a Black trans woman, whose assigned name was James Clay, galvanized the city’s fledgling gay liberation community. Angela Douglas helped build the Gay Liberation Fronts of Los Angeles and Miami, only to be shunned by both groups. And Marsha P. Johnson served for decades as a spiritual light in Greenwich Village, always willing to help the cause, even when the cause so rarely helped her.
On March 8, 1970, forty-eight years ago today, two Los Angeles Police officers shot and killed Laverne Turner, a trans woman of color, hours after activists held a memorial service marking the one-year anniversary of the death of another gay activist killed by police. Little is known about Turner’s life, but her name became a rallying cry for Los Angeles queer activists.
“Let a little drop fall,” Audre Lorde said in 1979, “call it a libation. . ., for all our [siblings] who did not survive. For it is within the contexts of our pasts as well as our present and our future that we must redefine community. I ask that each of you remember the ghosts of those who came before us; that we carry within ourselves the memory of those. . .within our communities whose power and knowledge we have been robbed of, those who will never be with us, and those who are not here now.”

Being unapologetic does not mean being outspoken and loud all the time (though when it sure as HER does, we’re A-Ok with it). Sometimes it means being reflective, turning inward, learning to listen to ourselves and to our Souls and finding out what really, truly, deeply matters. She is capable of being both quiet and loud. Loud and proud. Quiet and proud. Proud and humble. Humble and amazed. And any combination of the above, unapologetically.
