Dear World AIDS Museum Supporters,
 

Stonewall, our friend and supporter, has 28 tickets available to their annual fundraiser, ONE NIGHT WITH CHEYENNE JACKSON, this Saturday, February 14 at 6:00 PM at the Parker Playhouse. $100 gala tickets include open bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a large silent auction, and reserved seats for the show. 

If last year’s party and show are any indication, this year will be another fabulous event with the dreamy Cheyenne Jackson as the headliner.  Cheyenne is a megastar on Broadway and is on the verge of breaking out as a movie star with his roles in the recent LGBT-themed, LOVE IS STRANGE, and the upcoming SIX DANCE LESSONS IN SIX WEEKS, with Gena Rowlands, opening at the Gateway next week.If you’ve not already made plans for Valentine’s Day, please plan to join us at the Parker Playhouse this week.  I promise you a terrific evening that leaves you feeling great not just about the party and show – but also for the feeling of knowing you are helping to support a nationally important LGBT organization located in our own backyard.
Thank you for being a part of the Stonewall family of supporters. Please remember that only tickets purchased through Stonewall-Museum.org

support the organization’s mission through this gala. I hope that you are able to join us Saturday.

2011 Tony Award Winner
for Best Revival of a Play

Tony winner George C. Wolfe, (Angels in America) directs Larry Kramer’s Tony Award-winning Broadway production of The Normal Heart. Fueled by love, anger, hope and pride, a circle of friends struggle to contain the mysterious disease ravaging New York’s gay community.

Dismissed by politicians, frustrated by doctors and fighting with each other, their differences could tear them apart – or change the world. Hailed by critics as “riveting” (Newsday) and “a great night at the theater” (New York Times), Kramer’s masterwork is an outrageous and totally unforgettable look at sexual politics during the AIDS crisis and remains one of the theater’s most powerful evenings ever.

FREE MOVIE NIGHT!  Friday March 9, 2012

WHERE:  Stonewall Library –  1300 East Sunrise Blvd

STARTS:  7 PM –  Meet inside Library at 6:45 PM

Movie is about the story of Christopher Isherwood‘s life in Berlin in the early 1930s. Isherwood wrote the story that became the movie CABERET with Liza and the THE SINGLE MAN.

Those wanting to eat/drink together will meet after the movie. Contact John at Goldleaf69@aol.com with any questions or comments.

MOVIE:

Christopher and His Kind  

Christopher and His Kind is a 2011 BBC television film. It tells the story of Christopher Isherwood‘s life in Berlin in the early 1930s. The film was adapted by Kevin Elyot from Isherwood’s autobiography of the same title, produced by Mammoth Screen and directed by Geoffrey Sax. Isherwood is played by Matt Smith, whilst the cast also includes Toby Jones, Douglas Booth, Imogen Poots and Iddo Goldberg.

 
In Los Angeles in 1976, Christopher Isherwood begins writing a memoir. The film flashes back to 1931 as Christopher prepares to leave England for Germany, against the wishes of his mother Kathleen. On the train he meets Gerald Hamilton, an English ne’er-do-well of Irish descent, who suggests that Christopher take a room at the boarding house where he lives. Upon his arrival in Berlin, Christopher meets his friend Wystan Auden, who takes him to the Cosy Corner, a seedy gay club populated by hustlers.
Christopher takes up residence at Gerald’s boarding house under landlady Fräulein Thurau. There he becomes fast friends with Jean Ross, an aspiring actress who sings at an underground club. He also begins a tumultuous affair with Caspar, one of the rentboys from the Cosy Corner. Their relationship continues until Caspar abruptly disappears. Christopher does not see him until many months later and is horrified to see that he has joined the Nazis.
To earn a living Christopher offers English lessons. One of his students is Wilfrid Landauer, the wealthy Jewish owner of a department store. He entreats Christopher to take a political stand against Nazism but Christopher, as an artist, initially demurs. Herr Landauer’s home is ransacked by the Nazis and they lead a boycott against his and other Jewish-owned businesses. Christopher last sees Wilfrid when their eyes sorrowfully meet over a bonfire of books the Nazis are burning.
With the Nazis gaining in power, Christopher and Heinz decide to leave Berlin. They travel to England where Christopher tries to secure permanent residency for Heinz. Their hopes are dashed, however, when a passport officer denies Heinz a permit to remain in the country. The couple decides to travel around Europe, avoiding a return to Nazi Germany.
Several years later Jean and Christopher chance upon each other in an outdoor café in England. They reminisce and he tells her that Heinz was eventually arrested and sentenced to prison, followed by a stint in the army. Jean confides that she does not miss Berlin.
The scene shifts to 1952. Christopher has returned to Berlin for the first time since 1934, to write a magazine article. He reunites with Heinz who, following the partition of the city, ended up in East Berlin. He has married and has a son named Cristoph. Heinz expresses his wish that Christopher should find a family of his own and suggests that he and his family could move to the United States and become Christopher’s family as well. Christopher refuses to commit to the idea but promises to remain in contact with Heinz. He visits his old boarding house for a joyful reunion with Fräulein Thurau, whose home ended up being in the American sector of the city. She presents him with the dolphin clock that adorned his old room, exhorting him to look at it and remember happy times.

THE EINSTEIN OF SEX
 (Der Einstein des Sex)

 Der Einstein des Sex is a film about the life of sex researcher and gay rights pioneer Dr Magnus Hirschfeld, 1868-1935. Dr Magnus Hirschfeld launched the world’s first gay rights organization in Berlin over a hundred years ago. Hirschfeld’s Scientific Humanitarian Committee, founded in Germany in 1897, pioneered the struggle for homosexual emancipation.  He wrote a pamphlet calling for the decriminalization of gay sex, which was then outlawed under Paragraph 175 of the German penal code. Lots of gay parties and plenty of boyfriends!  The 1890s equivalent of Stonewall, the Scientific Humanitarian Committee’s motto was: “Justice through science”. Some of it’s more radical supporters adapted the battle cry of the French Revolution, demanding:
“Liberte, Fraternite, Egalite, Homosexualite!”
As well as his concern for the welfare of homosexuals, he was also a strong advocate of the rights of transgender people. Good fortune shone on Hirschfeld when he was paid a fabulous sum to perform one of the world’s first sex-change operations. The payment enabled him to establish the Institute for Sexual Science in 1919, which predated Dr Alfred Kinsey’s US sex research institute by nearly 30 years.
While away in the US lecturing in 1933, Nazi storm troopers attacked and ransacked the Institute for Sexual Science, destroying its priceless research archives. The vast library was burned in the great bonfire of “enemy books”. The Nazis also seized the Institute’s huge list of names and addresses. These were later used by the Gestapo to compile their notorious “pink lists”, which identified homosexuals and led to their arrest and deportation to the concentration camps.
With the Nazis publicly denouncing Hirschfeld as one of the country’s leading “Jewish criminals”, which was effectively a death sentence, friends advised him not to return to Germany. He went to the south of France instead, where he died suddenly of a stroke in 1935. His lover Karl Giese committed suicide in 1938, while on the run from the Nazis.
