The first Shamut screw gunboat begun on 2 February 1863 by the Portsmouth (N.H.) Navy Yard— was launched on 17 April 1863, sponsored by Miss Lucy Hall, departed Portsmouth on 20 October 1863, was towed to New York where her engine and machinery were installed by the South Brooklyn Works; was delivered to the Navy on 16 October 1864; and commissioned at the New York Navy Yard on 1 November 1864, Lt. Comdr. George U. Morris in command.

Two days later, Shamut got underway to search for Confederate Navy commerce raider, Tallahassee (renamed Olustee), which had recently preyed upon Northern shipping off the Delaware capes. After cruising in Nova Scotian waters without seeing or hearing of her quarry, Shawmut returned to the Portsmouth Navy Yard on the 20th.

On 9 January 1865, the gunboat was ordered to proceed to Wilmington, N.C., to join the North Atlantic Blockading Squadron. She participated in the attack on and capture of Fort Anderson, N.C., from 18 to 20 February. On the latter day, a boat from Shawmut was destroyed by a torpedo (the Civil War term for a mine) as it swept waters in the area.

In March, as Grant's operations around Richmond approached their climax, Shawmut was called back to Hampton Roads and stationed in the York River "to keep open free navigation between White House and the mouth of the York River." With the fall of Richmond and Lee's surrender, Shawmut was ordered north and decomissioned at the New York Navy Yard on 17 April 1865.

Refitted for foreign service, the gunboat was recommissioned on 15 June 1865 and soon sailed for Bahia, Brazil. Following over a year's service on the Brazil Station protecting "our flag from insult and the property of our citizens from unlawful seizure," Shawmut returned home and was decommissioned at the New York Navy Yard on 8 December 1866.

Recommissioned on 12 August 1867, Shawmut served in the North Atlantic Squadron until she was laid up again at New York on 7 July 1868. Reactivated once more on 18 March 1871, the ship resumed service in the North Atlantic and served along the Atlantic seaboard until finally laid up at the Norfolk Navy Yard on 22 January 1877. She was sold on 27 September to E. Stannard & Co., Westbrook, Conn.

The Massachusetts Turnpike is the southern boundary of the neighborhood, which coincides with the right-of-way of the former Boston and Worcester Railroad, laid down in the 1830s. Marginal Road and Cortes Street are the surface roads that parallel "the Pike". Across the Pike to the southwest lies the South End neighborhood to the southeast of the Pike and Tremont Street is the southern edge of Chinatown. To the west of Berkeley Street and north of Columbus Avenue (west of Arlington Street) is the Back Bay neighborhood. To the north of Stuart Street is Park Square, and to the east of Charles Street is the Washington Street Theatre District. [2] [3]

In 1983, the area bounded by Cortes Street, Tremont Street, Piedmont Street, and Isabella Street was designated as the "Bay Village Historic District" by the Boston Landmarks Commission. The exterior appearance of buildings is protected by a Historic District designation administered by the Bay Village Historic District Commission. [4]

The narrow one-way network and irregular grid arrangement of the streets make the interior urban spaces of Bay Village relatively quiet and pedestrian-friendly, due to sparse automobile traffic. Most of the sidewalks are paved with brick, and are lit by gas streetlamps at night. One small street is still paved with original cobblestones, while the remainder have long ago been repaved with asphalt.

There are a few "vest-pocket parks" located within or nearby Bay Village, including Eliot Norton Park, which although technically located in the Theatre District, is just across Charles Street from the eastern boundary of the neighborhood. [3] The Boston Public Garden and Boston Common are located just two blocks away from the northern edge of Bay Village.

Traditionally middle to lower-middle class, the neighborhood has become relatively more expensive and upscale, beginning around the 1990s. [ citation needed ] The Bay Village Neighborhood Association (BVNA) is very active in controlling urban nuisances, such as traffic, litter, graffiti, and pet wastes (an approved dog walking area is located next to Eliot Norton Park). The BVNA is also known for organizing Spring and Fall Cleanup days, a book club, and the Bay Village Annual Neighborhood Block Party (which features restaurant tables and service literally in the middle of the narrow streets, when permitted by the weather). [5]

The western part of the neighborhood was originally part of the body of water known as the Back Bay, west of the Boston Neck isthmus. This area was once known as South Bay, as the original waterline was in the area of Charles Street and Broadway (formerly Carver Street and Pleasant Street). [6] In the 1820s, the neighborhood was landfilled by developer Ephraim Marsh, [7] in partnership with Francis Cabot Lowell Jr, before the more extensive landfills of the adjacent Back Bay and South End neighborhoods. [8] Through its history, the neighborhood has been known at different times as the Church Street District, South Cove, and Kerry Village. [9]

Architecturally, many Bay Village homes look like smaller versions of Beacon Hill townhouses. This is largely because many of the craftspeople who built the Beacon Hill residences settled in this area and built the local residences for their own use. [10] Fayette Street, named for the American Revolutionary War soldier Marquis de Lafayette, has numerous houses dating from the Federal Period. Grander five-story townhouses in the Greek Revival style may be found on Melrose Street. After the area west of Ferdinand Street was filled in, developers built luxury residential "hotels" in the Victorian style on Cortes and Isabella Streets.

Raising the Village Edit

In 1868, the majority of what is now Bay Village was raised in order to eliminate sewage problems created by the filling of the adjacent South End and Back Bay neighborhoods. [6] Some 457 houses and 24 other structures were raised by 12 feet (4m) to a grade of 18 feet (6m) above mean low water, with cellars, gardens and vacant lots raised to 6 feet (2m) above mean low water. [11] The total cost of this massive engineering feat was $632,700, compared to a total estimated value of $1,668,120 for all of the structures raised. [11] To complete the work, the City of Boston temporarily took possession of all the structures in the area, exchanging them for City bonds with the property owners. There were 3,528 displaced individuals in total, coming from 867 families, and the work took around two years to complete. Once the structures and streets were raised, and the new sewer system was functional, the structures were returned to the property owners. [11]

Many of the raised structures were modified with new entrances into what had previously been the second floor. Visitors can see evidence of this today by noting the location of the basement windows in some of the buildings on Fayette Street, as well as arches opening to horsewalks that ran under the houses to stables in the rear. In addition, some private gardens were never raised, and remain near their original elevations. [12] The Church Street Church, for which Church street was named, was raised and "much altered by 1868 (at the time of the raising of the district)." [6] The church, which was located between the current Winchester and Piedmont Streets, was later demolished in 1924.

Edgar Allan Poe Edit

The American writer Edgar Allan Poe was born at the edge of Bay Village his parents were both actors in the Theatre District nearby. A commemorative plaque on Boylston Street is a couple of blocks away from the actual location of Poe's birth. [13] The house which was his birthplace at 62 Carver Street no longer exists also, the street has since been renamed "Charles Street South". [14] [15] A "square" at the intersection of Broadway, Fayette, and Carver Streets had once been named in his honor, [16] but it disappeared when the streets were rearranged. In 2009, the intersection of Charles and Boylston Streets (two blocks north of his birthplace) was newly designated "Edgar Allan Poe Square". [17] A residential condominium a few streets away within Bay Village is also named in his honor, but otherwise has no known connection to the author.

In 2014, a permanent memorial bronze sculpture by Stefanie Rocknak was installed at Edgar Allan Poe Square. Poe Returning to Boston depicts a life-sized Poe striding against the wind, accompanied by a flying raven his suitcase lid has fallen open, leaving a "paper trail" of literary works embedded in the sidewalk behind him. [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23]

Cocoanut Grove fire Edit

Bay Village was the site of the November 1942 fire at the Cocoanut Grove nightclub, in which 492 people lost their lives. Its terrible aftermath led to the creation and enforcement of stringent fire codes across the US, in the hope of preventing other such tragedies. Marking the 50th anniversary of the incident, the Bay Village Neighborhood Association placed a memorial plaque in the brick sidewalk near the club's former site on Piedmont Street, now partially occupied by the Revere Hotel (formerly the Radisson Hotel). [9] [24] The plaque states:

The Cocoanut Grove. Erected by the Bay Village Neighborhood Association, 1993. In memory of the more than 490 people who died in the Cocoanut Grove fire on November 28, 1942. As a result of that terrible tragedy, major changes were made in the fire codes, and improvements in the treatment of burn victims, not only in Boston but across the nation. "Phoenix out of the Ashes"

A smaller inscription in the lower left corner says, "This plaque crafted by Anthony P. Marra, youngest survivor of the Cocoanut Grove fire".

On November 30, 2013, a short street running through the former site of the Cocoanut Grove Club, and previously named "Shawmut Extension", was renamed "Cocoanut Grove Lane". The on-site renaming ceremony was attended by several survivors of the fire and around 250 guests and spectators. Speakers included Marty Walsh, who had recently been elected mayor of Boston, but not yet sworn into office. [25] [26]

The plaque was removed in 2014 for the construction of new condominium residences on the site, [27] but was reinstalled in June 2016 as previously agreed to by the developer. [28] However a few weeks later, the plaque was relocated to the corner of Cocoanut Grove Lane nearby, at the request of some condominium owners. The relocation was objected to by the surviving daughter of Anthony P. Marra (who had designed the plaque), with support from other interested parties. [28] [26] According to a Boston Globe article, the condo owners stated "We now occupy these homes with our families as part of the Bay Village neighborhood and would like to enjoy our homes in peace, without tragic memories, hanging wreaths at our doors and tourists peeking into our houses". [28] One of the condominium developers has claimed that the new placement of the plaque is closer to the original location of the infamous revolving door at the entrance to the nightclub, which had become jammed in the panic and had trapped many victims. [26]

As of 2016 [update] , Walk Score rates Bay Village as the fourth most walkable neighborhood in the City of Boston, which itself is rated the third most walkable city in the US, and has a high Transit Score as well. [33] Bay Village has been assigned a Walk Score of 98, and a Transit Score of 100 its lower Bike Score of 71 is still considered "Very Bikeable". [34]

Several MBTA rapid transit stations are located just beyond the boundaries of Bay Village, which is also served by several local bus routes. Commuter rail and Amtrak long-haul trains stop at Back Bay Station and South Station, within walking distance to the west and east of Bay Village, respectively. Inter-city bus services depart from the regional South Station Bus Terminal.

Nearby MBTA stations include:

On-street parking is very scarce within Bay Village, and is mostly reserved for holders of Residential Parking stickers. Commercial parking is available in numerous surface lots and parking garages located near or in the neighborhood. Entrance ramps to the Massachusetts Turnpike (I-90) and the Central Artery (I-93) are a minute's drive away.

In addition to the larger metropolitan Boston publications, several local weekly newspapers are distributed free in Bay Village. The neighborhood is so small that it is often included in the South End or Back Bay neighborhoods.

The Boston Courant covered the Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Downtown, Fenway, South End, and the Waterfront neighborhoods of Boston, and included dedicated real estate listings for South End / Bay Village, and events calendar listings. However, the newspaper announced that it would permanently shut down, in its February 6, 2016 edition.

Shortly after that announcement, the Back Bay Sun changed its name to the Boston Sun, and expanded its coverage from the Back Bay to also include the South End and Fenway-Kenmore neighborhoods of Boston. The paper is owned by The Independent Newspaper Group (ING), which also publishes The Beacon Hill Times. This latter newspaper has had some coverage of Bay Village, and is of interest because of the close proximity and historical connections to the Beacon Hill neighborhood.

In 2016, the previous publisher of the defunct Boston Courant debuted a reborn publication under the new banner of the Boston Guardian, serving the Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Downtown, Fenway, South End, and North End/Waterfront districts of Boston. The new publication's title stirred up some controversy over the alleged appropriation of a historic journalistic name. [35] [36] [37]

In addition, the Bay Village Neighborhood Association occasionally distributes its free quarterly newsletter in the area, and back issues can be downloaded from its website.

Study reframes the history of LGBT mental health care

New research reveals that community-based clinics and clinicians play an essential role in reshaping both mental health care for LGBT people and broader attitudes about sexuality and gender.

Stephen Vider, assistant professor of history in the College of Arts and Sciences, is a co-author with David S. Byers, assistant professor at Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research, of “Clinical Activism in Community-based Practice: The Case of LGBT Affirmative Care at the Eromin Center, Philadelphia, 1973–1984,” which was published Nov. 9 in American Psychologist.

Eromin Center executive director Anthony Silvestre, left, and clinical director Mary Cochran are pictured in the center’s office in Philadelphia in 1981.

Their paper uncovers the story of the Eromin Center, one of the first LGBT counseling centers in the United States, which was open in Philadelphia from 1973 to 1984. Eromin was a portmanteau for “erotic minorities.”

Historically, LGBT people struggled to find mental health care that didn’t treat divergence from sexual and gender norms as a mark of psychopathology. The authors show how Eromin’s proactive stance not only provided support for people who needed mental health care but also advanced a new model of LGBT affirmative clinical practice.

They describe Eromin’s approach as an example of what they call “clinical activism.” Without pre-existing models or research to draw upon, Eromin clinicians improvised new therapeutic approaches, guided by their own ethics and experiences.

This improvisational and community-responsive approach to care, the authors argue, was used by many early LGBT counseling centers in the United States, in spite of national leadership and mental health policy that was slower to change.

“Most histories of LGBT mental health point to the removal of homosexuality from the ‘Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders’ in late 1973 by the American Psychiatric Association as the crucial turning point in LGBT depathologization,” said Vider. “Our research shows, however, the critical role of clinicians working in developing models of affirmative LGBT counseling.”

Eromin, in fact, was founded six months before the APA decision.

Their paper, written with Amelia Smith, a social worker at the Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia, is part of an oral history and archival research project that Byers and Vider have been leading since 2015. The oral histories will be archived in Cornell University Library’s Rare and Manuscript Collections as part of its Human Sexuality Collection.

The Eromin Center, the authors wrote, “framed the major problem facing LGBT people not as inherent psychopathology but as marginalization.” One goal was to counteract the stigma and discrimination another was to help clients achieve self-acceptance and develop personal strengths. Most of Eromin’s counselors were gay or lesbian, and gave treatment rooted in their own experiences.

By 1977, more than 1,000 people had received care. Eromin also pioneered counseling and support services for transgender clients, and by the 1980s, was working to develop more programming for LGBT people of color.

The center closed in 1984, but the impact it and other LGBT clinics have had on counseling in the United States has been crucial, Vider said.

“The APA may have depathologized same-sex desire on paper,” he said, “but it was clinicians in programs like Eromin who ultimately made self-acceptance possible.”

Even after the APA decision, Vider said, many clinicians continued to treat same-sex sexuality and transgender identity as forms of mental illness that needed to be “cured.” Eromin provided and modeled a critical alternative.

Byers said there is still need for change.

“Today, many clinical training programs, social service agencies and professional organizations work to some degree to affirm LGBT people and other marginalized identities, experiences and expressions,” he said. “The care remains very uneven, though.”

It can be especially difficult, he said, to access thoughtful and individualized mental health care related to transgender identities and experiences. Another challenge is a still-active network of clinicians who claim they can change a client’s sexual orientation or gender expression.

Byers stressed the need for clinicians in the field to take a critical and anti-oppressive stance in their work, and for graduate programs and medical schools to empower new clinicians to be responsive to local needs. Byers said, “Today, social workers, psychiatrists and psychologists often fail to listen with an ear to the political aspects of their practice. We are not trained to work together with our clients or to be creative in the collaboration. However, clinicians today absolutely need to pursue new forms of clinical activism. The status quo in community-based mental health care is often ethically unacceptable.”

At the same time, Byers said there are many clinicians engaging in clinical activism throughout the country right now, though with little recognition.

“Clinicians face systemic challenges,” he said, “and lack of support while working with people with marginalized sexual orientations and gender identities with individuals experiencing poverty, racism, misogyny or trauma and in response to anti-immigrant and anti-refugee violence.”

“One lesson of the Eromin Center is that change at the level of policy and guidelines is often not enough,” said Vider. “Real and lasting change has to start within communities.”

Vider is director of the Cornell Public History Initiative. In the spring, he will teach a lecture course on the history of mental illness and a seminar, Making Public Queer History.

Byers will be a postdoctoral associate at the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, beginning in fall 2020.

Shawmut ScGbt - History

As we begin our celebration of LGBT History Month, we must recognize how LGBT history has been told. For decades, the trailblazing work of BIPOC LGBT pioneers has been eclipsed by white and cisgender narratives. Names like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera have not always been at the forefront of our history.

Far too often, we see the practice of whitewashing affect how history is told. This leaves the BIPOC community with the task of undoing this flawed storytelling. They cannot and should not do it alone, so it is up to white community members and allies to do better. That’s why SAGE dedicated this past Pride month to honoring the LGBT people of color who fought against police violence at Stonewall. We must continue to elevate the voices that show us that history isn’t just lived, it’s made.

LGBT elders deserve to have their history told accurately and told by them – especially during LGBT History Month.

Our community’s pioneers have always been on the front lines, and their resilience is what continues to propel us forward. We see our elders’ dedication in trans pioneer Miss Major Griffin Gracy, whose leadership continues to inspire activism in support of Black Lives Matter and trans women of color. We see it in history being made today, as the torch is passed to BIPOC trans leaders Cecilia Gentili and Tanya Asapansa-Johnson Walker. Their recent lawsuit challenged the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ removal of anti-discrimination protections for the trans community in the Affordable Care Act. We see it in so many of our trailblazing LGBT elders of color who continue to prove that history isn’t just lived it’s made.

Throughout LGBT History Month, SAGE will focus on stories of resilience across the community. We will amplify our BIPOC LGBT elders and older trans, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming people. It is our responsibility to showcase these fierce leaders and their continued influence on our community. From organizing the March on Washington and protesting police violence, to protecting the right to safe and effective healthcare, when it comes to making history, BIPOC LGBT pioneers refuse to be invisible.

Moynihan was born in Marietta, Ohio October 19, in 1959, [1] the sixth of eight children in a Catholic family of Irish descent. [5] [6] Moynihan graduated from Brown University in 1981, where he majored in history, co-captained the rugby team, and met his future wife, classmate Susan E. Berry. [7] [8] He earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Notre Dame Law School, [9] before returning to Providence, Rhode Island to join Edwards & Angell LLP, the city's largest corporate law firm. [8]

Moynihan held numerous banking positions before becoming President of Consumer and Small Business Banking (SBB) at Bank of America in January 2009. [10]

He joined Fleet Boston bank in April 1993 as a deputy general counsel. [9] From 1999 to April 2004, he served as Executive Vice President, managing Fleet's brokerage and wealth management division. After Bank of America (BoA) merged with FleetBoston Financial in 2004, he joined BoA as president of global wealth and investment management. [11] He was named CEO of Merrill Lynch after its sale to BoA in September 2008, and became the CEO of Bank of America after Ken Lewis stepped down in 2010. [10]

On August 25, 2011, CNBC's Drew Sandholm noted that "[d]espite having recently told investors Bank of America . doesn't need to raise capital, CEO Brian Moynihan will accept $5 billion in capital from famed investor Warren Buffett. The deal not only surprised the Fast Money traders on Thursday, it also caused them to question Moynihan's credibility." [12]

On September 12, 2011, CNBC's John Carney noted that Moynihan had "once again laid out his company's plan to meet regulatory capital requirements and denied that the bank will have to issue new stock to raise capital . [Moynihan] says that Warren Buffett's $5 billion counts as Tier 1 Capital. But the markets have largely ignored the investment, most likely because it looks a lot more like debt than capital." [13]

On October 26, 2011, Huffington Post blogger Jillian Berman noted that BoA "has also been hammered in the stock and bonds markets" and "was the worst performer in the Dow Jones Industrial Average for two-quarters straight . while Moody's downgraded the bank last month." She added while Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase's CEO, received a $19 million raise in 2010, Moynihan's salary stayed level at $950,000. [14]

On December 27, 2011, Julia LaRoche wrote in Business Insider that Moynihan "admitted the proposed $5 monthly fee for debit card users wasn't the best idea". She quoted him as saying: "We struck a chord with customers that no one anticipated. We learned our lesson and stopped it." [15] It was later reported that the failed fee plan led to a 20% increase in account closures during the last three months of 2011. [16]

Business Insider noted that "a group of law professors and activists from a non-profit called Public Citizen sent a 24 page petition to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Geithner asking them to consider breaking up and reforming Bank of America. [17]

In July 2020, Bank of America’s Brian T. Moynihan was named Chief Executive Magazine’s 2020 CEO Of The Year [18]

He currently lives in Wellesley, Massachusetts and frequently commutes between Boston and Bank of America's headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina using Bank of America's private jets. This practice has come under scrutiny from some shareholders. [19] [20] [21]

The bank's 2012 shareholder meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina convened "as protests swirled inside and outside", according to the San Francisco Chronicle. There were complaints from shareholders regarding the bank's mortgage servicing operations, decreased share prices, and other issues. Protesters converged outside the building, which they were barred from entering by police and metal barricades. In response to the criticisms of the bank's mortgage servicing operations, Moynihan tried to reassure the audience, saying "you can call us and we will figure it out". [22]

In 2012, Moynihan, alongside several other CEO's, faced heavy criticism from Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in a report titled "Top Corporate Tax Dodgers". According to the report, Moynihan's Bank of America paid no federal income tax in 2010 and received a $1.9 billion tax refund despite making $4.4 billion in profits. The report also includes criticisms of Bank of America's use of tax havens. [23]

From Pride to The Palace: Miami’s LGBT community through the years

Miami has had a gay nightlife scene as early as the 1930s. From then on, it would be a rollercoaster of ups and downs, filled with progress, failure, celebrations, and heartbreak in Miami LGBT history, leading to our current status as a gay mecca that attracts more than 1 million LGBT visitors a year. A place with its own chamber of commerce dedicated to the queer community since 1997, and where Art Smith hosted and officiated a mass gay wedding for more than two dozen couples this past February.

Of course, it didn’t happen right away, and the early gay nightlife scene of the 1930s was not long-lived. Raids would shut down queer establishments on an almost nightly basis, but they kept popping right back up again. This silent film shows a police raid on a Miami gay bar in 1957.

This mistreatment continued until the end of the 1960s, escalating to targeted murders, harassment, and public shaming via stories in local newspapers.

In 1964, a Florida legislative committee led by Senator Charley Johns published Homosexuality and Citizenship in Florida, also known as the Purple Pamphlet, as part of a witch hunt to seek out gays and bisexuals working in schools, universities, and government jobs, who they believed were determined to “subvert the American way of life by controlling academic institutions and by corrupting the nation’s moral fiber,” according to Carryin’ on in the Lesbian and Gay South. Filled with pornographic pictures, it attempted to portray queer people as degenerate disease carriers worse than child molesters. The backlash against the Johns committee was swift, with Dade County officials threatening legal action and the Florida Attorney General demanding that distribution of the Purple Pamphlet cease immediately.

Fighting for rights

Despite the persecution, Miami’s LGBT community remained tenacious in their fight for equal rights. Activism prevailed, and things began looking up in the 1970s. According to The Encyclopedia of Lesbian and Gay Histories and Cultures, “The first organized gay pride week was celebrated in Miami Beach in early 1972 with a march on Lincoln Road protesting a city law banning cross-dressing. Two weeks later, the law was struck down by a federal court. In August of that year, hundreds of gays and lesbians joined thousands of protestors at the 1972 Republican National Convention in Miami Beach.”

Establishments where queers could congregate reached an all-time high, becoming even more prevalent than they are today. Most were located in Miami, but there were plenty of Miami Beach spots such as Club Benni on Alton Road and Club Echo and Circus Bar on Ocean Drive, as well as the Mayflower Lounge and Basin Street.

In January 1977, an ordinance passed banning discrimination against gays and lesbians. However, Anita Bryant led a campaign against the pioneering antidiscrimination law, and it was repealed in June of that year.

But that didn’t slow down the LGBT community. By the 1980s, Miami Beach was becoming known as a bohemian mecca for queers around the country, a place where everyone could live freely and openly. This further boosted the economic development and the rise of Miami Beach throughout the 1980s and 1990s, with the latter best referred to as the Versace Era, known its extravagant parties, glamour, and celebrities.

South Beach fabulous

The LGBT community proved absolutely instrumental in transforming Miami Beach from a town known for criminals and retirees to the glittering gem of all things fabulous it would become. This was further propelled by the famous relocation of Gianni Versace to Casa Casuarina in 1992, and then the premiere of The Real World: Miami in 1996. Two years earlier in 1994, the cast of The Real World: San Francisco included Pedro Zamora, a Miami gay man fighting AIDS.

People flocked in masses. “Everything was pastel and glitter,” Shelley Novak, one of the grandmothers of Miami Beach drag, told World Red Eye. “You were tripping over gays. There was a smaller group of lesbians, too.”

Most popular during this decade were Warsaw, located in the former Jerry’s Famous Deli spot, and Paragon on Washington Avenue, along with Salvation, a warehouse space on West Avenue. Dozens of stores, restaurants, and gyms catered specifically to the LGBT community.

However, it wasn’t only about the party. Leonard Horowitz, the openly gay cofounder of the Miami Design Preservation League, was propelled into the public spotlight in the 1980s for his dedicated efforts to promote and preserve Miami’s Art Deco architecture, alongside cofounder Barbara Capitman. We have him to thank for South Beach’s iconic visual look, recognized the world over.

The 1990s also saw great strides in the government and civic activism. Save Dade, which continues to promote equality for LGBT members of the community, was founded in 1993, and in 1998, equal rights for gays and lesbians became county law.

At the same time, Miami has always had a gritty side, and in the gay community it involved bathhouses and anonymous sex in Flamingo Park, at the same time as the AIDS epidemic swept through the country. AIDS in particular is a problem we’re still struggling with, and Miami remains the No. 1 city for HIV transmission in the U.S.

Then, in 1997, Andrew Cunanan shot Gianni Versace in front of his mansion. While police never provided any connection between his death and his sexual orientation, locals got nervous and things became tense.

There was a new wave hitting the Beach, one that included more commercialism and homogeny. The economy was good, in part due to the queer community, but the rent spikes eventually priced many out. The days of Robyn and dance music were replaced by hip-hop. This began a pilgrimage to Broward, especially to Fort Lauderdale and its neighbor Wilton Manors, which has become a gay mecca in its own right, ranked as the city with the second highest percentage of LGBT residents in the country as of the 2010 census, making up 14 percent of its population of just over 11,000.

To this day, Miami Beach and Wilton Manors continue to flourish, with both offering very different experiences. Miami Beach may be glitz and glamour, but Wilton Manors is a family town, and the two are close enough that there’s plenty of overlap between the two famous gayborhoods.

Going drag

One thing they both have in common is a thriving drag community. The concept of drag is not a new one by any means. It’s been alive since before the days of Shakespeare, and its traditional etymology notes that the word was originally theater slang. The word morphed throughout the centuries, and the way we use it today originated in the 1950s.

Drag queen performers can be men or transgender women, queer or straight, and Miami Beach is historically famous for its local talent, including Elaine Lancaster, Noel Leon, TP Lords, Latrice Royale, Tiffany Taylor Fantasia, Kitty Meow, Chyna Girl, and Daisy Deadpetals. The drag queen phenomenon in Miami Beach became especially prevalent during the Versace Era, bringing even more fame to Ocean Drive with its inclusion of The Carlyle in The Birdcage.

The Palace, located on 12th and Ocean, is exceptionally famous for its drag performances, with their famous tagline is “Every Queen Needs A Palace.” However, it wasn’t always a drag queen haven. Opened in 1988, it was originally a fruit bar called The Fruit Palace. According to the prevailing story, the original owners put the word fruit in the name in an effort to not offend anyone, since the beach right across the street was known as a popular gay haunt. It instantly became popular with the gay community, and the shop began adding liquor to its juices, eventually offering drag shows. Over the years, it has changed owners, incorporated a full-service food menu, and become world famous for its extravagant drag performances.

As rents priced out other gay businesses, the Palace persevered, and it’s now the only gay bar on Ocean Drive. They offer drag shows every night, but the main event occurs on Sundays, which is the drag brunch that started it all.

Looking ahead

In 2014, the Human Rights Campaign ranked Miami Beach No. 1 in its Municipal Equality Index, which measures the inclusivity of LGBT people in city laws, policies, and services. The city has been a pioneer for cities all over the country, with openly gay elected officials and services for LGBT youth, seniors, and the homeless. Miami Beach officials actually spoke out in court against Florida’s same-sex marriage ban. Miami-Dade County, too, has been ahead of its peers, passing an ordinance in December to protect transgender people from discrimination based on gender identity.

Political battles aren’t over for Miami’s LGBT community, though. Florida Representative Frank Artiles, R-Miami, launched a bill this year that would have banned transgender people from using bathrooms that reflect their gender identity. That bill would have overridden Miami-Dade’s ordinance, but it died in Tallahassee amid staunch opposition from human rights advocates, LGBT activist groups, and civil liberties organizations.

From Twist, Score, and the bevy of themed queer nights at local bars, to Hotel Gaythering, Miami Beach’s only gay hotel, opportunities to celebrate LGBT culture abound. Annual events like White Party, Miami Beach Gay Pride, the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and Aqua Girl welcome thousands of LGBT tourists and locals alike. Publications like Palette Magazine, South Florida Gay News and Wire Magazine keep the community informed. We’ve even got bowling leagues, softball teams, and, really, all types of groups for everybody of any age, from The Alliance for GLBTQ youth to Safe Schools South Florida. The LGBT community has become an inextricable and vital part of daily life in Miami, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.


Professional internships are strongly encouraged for students in the MHP program. Dozens of opportunities are available through the United States and abroad. Internships may be eligible for credit hours, and often include a stipend or other form of compensation. Read below for a sample of how our students have gained valuable experience interning with preservation organizations.

FindIt! Program

Mills Dorn ('19), Carter Finch ('19), Savannah Young ('19), and Anders Yount ('18) worked with the FindIt! Program to complete cultural resource surveys in Dooly County. This included conducting field surveys to identify and document historic properties, as well as entering this data into Georgia’s Natural, Archaeological, and Historic Resources GIS. FindIt! is housed in the Center for Community Design and Preservation at the College of Environment and Design here at the University of Georgia.

Five historic boathouses dubbed the "Painted Sisters" at Thousand Island Park.

Thousand Island Park

For the past two years, Caitlin Plesher ('19) has spent her summers interning with the Thousand Island Park Landmark Society and Thousand Island Park Corporation in beautiful upstate New York. The park was a Methodist campground established in 1875 that still continues to attract visitors from throughout the United States. As part of her internship, Caitlin put together exhibits on TIP’s history, surveyed historic cottages and boat houses, and compiled archival research and maps that will assist in the addition of the boathouses to TIP’s National Register listing. She said, “The Thousand Islands area is absolutely gorgeous with a rich history that has been beautifully preserved. I can’t wait to go back soon!”

The Archway Partnership is a UGA program that pairs students with communities to address their needs. As part of second-year student Sherrie Raleigh's ('19) assistantship with Archway, she is collaborating with citizens of Hartwell, Georgia to consolidate historic walking tours and research downtown buildings. Other projects MHP students have completed for Archway in the past include making recommendations for adaptive reuse, writing National Register nominations, and developing interpretative markers.

Greater Portland Landmarks

Lauren Patterson ('19) joined Greater Portland Landmarks in Maine to perform architectural surveys of neighborhoods vulnerable to development. With a team of three other graduate students from around the country, she surveyed six neighborhoods, researched their historic contexts, and helped develop the case for how the areas tell the story of Portland and deserve diligence to ensure their character is retained. Check out the Landmarks' blog for more on her adventures in New England.

Maxwell Nosbisch in front of Sagamore's main lodge

Great Camp Sagamore

For the past two years, Maxwell Nosbisch ('20) has spent his summers and falls interning with Great Camp Sagamore National Historic Landmark in Raquette Lake, New York- an Adirondack Great Camp.The site was the summer home of the Vanderbilt family and is the progenitor of "Rustic" architecture in the United States. The internships focused on interpretation and the preservation of the original structures. Maxwell took part in a rehabilitation of the original servants' quarters which now serves as the site's gift shop, intern lodging, and lounge. Maxwell also created a new tour of the site that focused on the female history including Margaret Vanderbilt. Maxwell said, "Great Camp Sagamore is always looking for interns that are ready to get their hands-dirty and learn hands-on preservation techniques. Anybody interested in the MHP at UGA will find Great Camp Sagamore a beneficial internship to their possible career goals."

The Governor's Mansion

Darcie Scales ('20) has always loved history. That’s why she jumped at the opportunity to take an internship with the Old Governor’s Mansion in Milledgeville, Georgia. She quickly found herself doing such things as transcribing the private journals of people like former Governor Joseph E. Brown and his wife. The chance to work with original documents thrilled Darcie as she is interested in a career in archival research. Her time at the Old Governor’s Mansion taught her what it takes to read and interpret historical manuscripts, which in turn helped the site further the interpretation it gives to the public.

Elyse Hoganson dove into her hometown's history by interning with the local historical society.

Etowah Valley Historical Society

Being from Cartersville, Georgia, Elyse Hoganson ('20) has always felt a connection to the history of her hometown. That is why she decided to spend the summer interning with the Etowah Valley Historical Society. Hoganson wrote articles for the Society's website regarding her research on historic schools in Bartow County, Georgia. The research was intensive, involving a variety of materials such as historic newspapers, microfilm, interviews, and site visits. Through her work, Hoganson identified three different types of historic schools in Bartow County. The depth of research surprised Hoganson, who feels the lessons learned helped her become a more professional preservationist.

Knox Heritage

As a Knoxville, Tennesee native, Rose Mayo ('20) has seen the impact of a growing effort toward historic preservation throughout her hometown. When the opportunity arose to intern with Knox Heritage, she was eager to contribute her efforts to the fantastic work the organization does in the community. Rose assisted on a number of projects under the direction of the Director of Education and Technical Services, most notably researching and writing portions of a National Register nomination for the first multi-level parking garage in the downtown area. This internship provided Rose invaluable insight into the work of preservation professionals and helped her ultimately decided to pursue an MHP at UGA.

Other organizations with which MHP students have recently interned include: Athens-Clarke County Planning Department (Athens, GA) Great Camp Santanoni (Adirondacks, NY) Historic Savannah Foundation (Savannah, GA) Historic Rural Churches of Georgia the Northeast Georgia Regional Planning Commission (Athens, GA) the Cannonball House (Macon, GA) WLA Studio (Athens, GA) and Historic Macon Foundation (Macon, GA), among others.


Master of Historic Preservation students represent a variety of academic and cultural backgrounds and interests. This is reflected in the breadth of projects taken on as independent thesis research. The below list includes completed topics through the Spring 2018 semester.

While travel is not required, many MHP students choose to do their thesis research on locations with which they have a strong connection. This has taken them to places such as duck camps in Louisiana (left) Nassau, Bahamas (middle) and Minneapolis, Minnesota (right).

Historic Structures Reports

According to the National Parks Service, “a historic structure report provides documentary, graphic, and physical information about a property’s history and existing condition.” By partnering with local historic sites, students in the MHP program get hands-on experience completing HSRs and learning how this vital resource plays into preservation planning. Below are examples of HSRs that students have completed on a variety of different building types for the Building Materials Conservation class.

10. One Archives Gallery & Museum

ONE magazine was the first wide-distribution magazine for gay people. Its founder Jim Kepner went on to amass what became the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives, now housed permanently in West Adams, courtesy of USC.

This WeHo arm of the One Archives is usually open to the public and hosts rotating art exhibits, but is currently under renovation and is closed until spring 2017. During the closure, there's expected to be off-site exhibits at Plummer Park.

The Battle of Chelsea Creek

  • Our header image this week is one in a series of panoramic views from the top of Beacon Hill that were painted by a British officer during the siege of Boston. Noddle Island is at 4, Hog Island is at 5, and the Winnisimmet ferry is at 3.
  • This Documentary History of Chelsea includes excerpts from Amos Farnsworth’s diary.
  • The Naval Documents of the American Revolution (vol 1) is an incredibly exhaustive collection of primary sources. on the “battle” of Grape Island.
  • Lt John Barker of the King’s own regiment kept a diary that covers both Grape Island and Chelsea Creek.
  • The Committee of Safety orders all livestock off of Hog and Noddle Islands.
  • A georeferenced 1776 map of Boston Harbor showing how the islands and Chelsea all fit together. Zoom in and out, then use the slider to adjust the opacity of the historic map to see the modern map below.
  • We relied heavily on the account of the battle compiled in this 2011 report and a related 2009 article. A series of maps can help you understand how the battle unfolded.
  • HMS Diana grounded on the ferry way at Winnisimmet. What is a ferry way?
  • Why do we keep calling it “the engagement that’s now remembered as the Battle of Chelsea Creek”? Because Chelsea Creek didn’t really exist at the time, as JL Bell tells us.

The LGBT movement’s destructive history and legacy

Homosexual pride flag Shutterstock

May 13, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) &mdash As the new Democrat-controlled Congress prepares to advance its LGBT agenda with the Equality Act, the possibility of the federal government mandating that biological boys share girls&rsquo dressing rooms and compete in girls&rsquo sports is very real. That possibility is just the latest consequence of a political movement that can be accurately described as one of the most destructive in American history. To understand what is happening now, it is helpful to understand how the LGBT movement got so powerful.

Here is a brief history of the LGBT movement in America:

The birth of LGBT power of intimidation came in the early 1970s when gay activists harassed psychiatrists and protested the American Psychiatric Association&rsquos classification of homosexuality as a disorder. Gay activists soon partnered with liberal psychiatrists to take over the leadership of the American Psychiatric Association, and in 1973 homosexuality was removed from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).[1] The removal of homosexuality from the DSM was not based on clinical science, but rather on political pressure from gay activists.[2] The vast majority of psychiatrists still saw homosexuality as a disorder or a symptom of a disorder, but only a few were willing to go toe to toe with the gay activists.[3] As a result, the LGBT bully was born and impowered.

Liberal leaders of the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association gradually allowed their homosexual members to control the dialogue on homosexuality. LGB (no T yet) divisions and sub-associations were created within these two APAs, and the APAs became extensions of the LGB movement.[4] As a result, fifty years of clinical science on the causation and treatment of homosexuality were systematically removed from treatment manuals and textbooks.[5] Gay activists and their allies continued their attacks on psychiatrists and psychologists who publicly disagreed with the non-disorder classification.[6] Within a short span of years, the APAs&rsquo support for objective clinical science on homosexuality became a thing of the past.

At the same time, in the early 1970s, gay rights activists in the universities were pressuring administrators to acknowledge them through gay student organizations. These student organizations eventually led to gay and lesbian student centers and LGB administrative divisions which dictated university policies on anything LGB.[7] The influence of LGB centers of power in the universities led to the loss of objectivity regarding the clinical science on homosexuality, and intolerance for any view which did not hold homosexuality on an equal status with heterosexuality. In recent history the loss of objectivity was extended to transgender clinical science when LGB became LGBT.

Once LGBT activists were controlling the dialogue on homosexuality in the APAs, they moved to expand their influence over therapists&rsquo and counselors&rsquo treatment strategies for clients with unwanted same-sex attraction, and children showing signs of gender confusion. It took years of continued effort, but in 2009 LGBT mental health professionals succeeded in using the American Psychological Association to condemn the practice of helping those with unwanted homosexuality try to move toward heterosexuality.[8] The client&rsquos self-determination no longer mattered if he/she sought to overcome homosexuality. Using the APA Task Force Report, LGBT activists extended their influence to legislative law, making it illegal in many states for a therapist to help a person who wishes to change their homosexual orientation.[9] These same activists have sought &mdash and succeeded in part &mdash to make it impossible for parents to get professional help for a child struggling with their sexual or gender identity, if the desire of the parent is to move the child toward a heterosexual identity or toward acceptance of their biological gender.[10]

Local governments and corporate America have also succumbed to the LGBT bully. LGBT activists have pushed the inclusion of &ldquosexual orientation&rdquo into corporate anti-discrimination policies. Once &ldquosexual orientation&rdquo has become part of the policy, LGBT activists have been able to punish workers who do not view homosexuality as moral or equal to heterosexuality.[11] This is similar to how LGBT activists have been able to punish opponents in the university setting and in the public-school systems.[12]

The most widespread intimidation tactic of the LGBT movement has been the creation of the word&rsquos &ldquohomophobia,&rdquo &ldquohomophobic,&rdquo &ldquohomophobe,&rdquo and recently &ldquotransphobia.&rdquo These terms do not mean fear of homosexuals or transgenders. Rather, they mean being opposed to LGBT social objectives. LGBT activists have projected that being homophobic is akin to being a racist or a bigot. The terms are meant to slander, shame, and intimidate,[13] in the same manner a racist or bigot uses slanderous words to demean people they don&rsquot like.

To indoctrinate the younger generations, LGBT activists and their allies have used teachers&rsquo unions,[14] library organizations,[15] publishers,[16] and professional organizations [17] to advance their LGBT social objectives. What students are told about homosexuality and transgender identities often comes from LGBT activists and their allies.[18] Students are not taught the science on the causes and changeability of homosexuality or transgenderism. In addition, if the health risks of male homosexual activity are not taught, the school system will endanger vulnerable students.[19] Schools that follow LGBT guidelines will not help students identify with their biological sex. Thus, more and more students will suffer from sexual identity issues and identify as homosexual and transgender.[20]

Any LGBT doctrinal teaching in the school system that professes that homosexuality and gay marriage are equivalent to heterosexuality and heterosexual marriage is a moral viewpoint. It is an anti-God moral viewpoint. Part of the LGBT political agenda is to force their morality on America. The authority to define the morality of American culture is supposed to come from the people. Unfortunately, too many citizens in America have been unwilling to fight against the LGBT activists for the moral high ground on sexuality.
