Pacific Justice Institute(PJI) issued a press release condemning a number of LGBT icons, outraged that they will be celebrated in California schools during our history month. PJI specifically picked out CeeCee McDonald saying she ‘murdered over an insult.’
We all know that’s hogwash but let’s take a moment and remember some of those attacked by the PJI and remember who they truly are.
CeCe Mcdonald ran, blood dripping down from a gash on her face trying to keep from getting hit again by a man who just appeared from a bar. In desperation, she pulled a pair of scissors from her purse as her attacker fell on her, those sissors ended up in his swastika tattooed chest killing him…
Natalie Clifford Barney (1876-1972), an American-born poet, memoirist, and epigrammatist, moved to Paris permanently in 1920. She established an influential literary salon that lasted more than fifty years, and documented her encounters with gay and lesbian writers she met there in two well-regarded memoirs. Sylvia Beach (1887-1962) was an American-born editor who founded Shakespeare and Company, a Parisian bookshop that had a significant impact on modern literature.
The PJI wouldn’t even mention John Cameron Mitchell’s film that was banned from MTV by name. So in the spirit of LGBT month I present SCISSOR SISTERS “Filthy Gorgeous” (Uncensored). Feel free to watch it as many times as you like. I am still watching it.
