VERY INTERESTING… How gay men used to speak – A short film in Polari (from Brian & Karl) and other “POLARI” stuff!

tumblr_lbz7xgGjLM1qblm1po1_1280

Polari was a form of slang used by gay men in Britain prior to the decriminalization of homosexuality in 1967, used primarily as a coded way for them to discuss their experiences. It quickly fell out of use in the 70s, although several words entered mainstream English and are still used today. For more about Polari: http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polari

Written & Directed by Brian Fairbairn and Karl Eccleston http://www.brianandkarl.com

tumblr_nqqsp5ilHi1sxxte2o1_1280

Who used it?

Mainly gay men, although also lesbians, female impersonators, theatre people, prostitutes and sea-queens (gay men in the merchant navy). It was not limited to gay men, however. Straight people who were connected to the theatre also used it, and there are numerous cases of gay men teaching it to their straight friends.
THIS INFO from Department of circlesLinguistics and English Language:

The most famous users of Polari were Julian and Sandy (played by Hugh Paddick and Kenneth Williams) in the 1960s BBC radio comedy show, Round The Horne (written by Barry Took and Marty Feldman). However, it has also been used in the past by Julian Clary, Larry Grayson, Peter Wyngarde, and in a Jon Pertwee episode of Dr Who (Carnival of Monsters).

How many words are there?

I have collected almost 500 Polari terms, although it’s unlikely that most people would have known or even used that many. During my research I found that people’s individual knowledge of Polari was very different – about 20 core words were known to almost all speakers, and then there was a much large fringe lexicon, of which most people would only know a small sample. Therefore, there were lots of different versions in existence – different pronunciations, spellings and meanings of the same word.

What words were in it?

There are lots of words for types of people, occupations, body parts, clothing and everyday objects. There were also a lot of evaluative adjectives in it. It was ideal for gossip. Verbs concerned sexual acts, cruising or looking at people. Some (but not all) of the core lexicon words are:

ajax – next to
bevvy – drink
bitch – catty gay man or to complain
blow(job) – to give oral sex
bona – good
camp – effeminate, outrageous etc
cod – awful
cottage – public toilet used for sex
dish – anus/bum
dolly – pretty
drag – clothing (usually the sort you’re not expected to wear)
eek – face
feely – young
lally – leg
lattie – house
naff – awful, tasteless
nanti – none, no, nothing, don’t, beware
omi – man
omi-palone – gay man
palone – woman
Polari – to talk, or the gay language itself
riah – hair
send up – to make fun of
TBH – to be had
The Dilly – Piccadilly Circus, a popular hang-out for male prostitutes in London
trade – a gay sex partner, often one who doesn’t consider himself to be gay
vada – to look

INTERESTING READ: CAN YOUNG GAYS ENJOY FIRE ISLAND? MITCHELL SUNDERLAND @ VICE (photos by MATTHEW LEIFHEIT)

can-daniel-nardicio-convince-young-gays-to-party-at-fire-island-789-body-image-1422937786

VICE: Fire Island has long been seen as a gay wonderland. It’s a place where queers like W.H. Auden, Christopher Isherwood, and Stephen Spender used to slut it up. Its sex parties and nude beaches were so notorious, they were immortalized in the fictional pages of “The Gay Gatsby,”Dancer from the Dance”. These days, however, if you visit the barrier island that sits in the Atlantic Ocean, east of New York City, you’ll find nary a twink.

can-daniel-nardicio-convince-young-gays-to-party-at-fire-island-789-body-image-1429194690

Although it remains a popular gay tourist spot and you can still buy enemas at the hardware store, young gay dudes do not frequent the island the way they used to. Today, the homo haven is overrun by middle-aged retired guys and their fag hags. If you do see someone in their 20s, they’re a Wall Street queer’s miserable sugar baby. When I once told another 20-something gay I had gone to the Island a few summers ago to interview porn stars, he looked at me as if I had taken a time machine back to a 1970s Times Square porn theater.

Barboza-Gubo & Mroczek
: The transgender community of Peru have been oppressed and marginalized by political and religious administrations. They are denied medical treatment, employment, education, official forms of identification, and there are zero laws to protect them. They are being eradicated from their culture. The photography project, “Virgenes de le Puerta” is increasing the global dialog and visibility of transgender women in the cultural landscape of Peru.

With our project in full swing we are asking you to assist us in our efforts. Our work has already created a large transformative buzz in Lima, and your assistance will directly impact their lives and protect members of the LGBTQ community. CHECK OUT MORE @ KICKSTARTER www.BarbozaGubo-Mroczek.com

Grab a drink. Grab a chair. And you might grab the boy of your dreams. Join Champagne Belly in the high school game “Spin The Bottle”. Are you feeling lucky?

IRISH CENTRAL: MacDonagh and MacBride and Connolly and Pearse. Every Irish school boy or girl knows the names of all the main players in the Easter Rising of 1916, but one revolutionary patriot has long been denied his due. If you’ve never heard of Roger Casement the reason is as simple as it is sad, he was homosexual. For that reason he was ignored when he was not being written out of our revolutionary history. At the turn of the century Casement, a longtime diplomat and human rights activist, was undergoing a profound and personal transformation. His travels were proving to him that the British Empire (and other colonial European powers) were profiting from exploitation, cruelty and murder….

Roger Casement on the Amazon 1910

Screen Shot 2015-04-12 at 1.24.08 PM

That series of developments ought to have inducted him into the Irish revolutionary hall of fame, but an an unexpected wrinkle in the tale prevented it. A set of diaries, which British authorities claimed he had written in the years 1903, 1910 and 1911 was circulated. They revealed that he was homosexual, that he was remarkably promiscuous, and that he usually paid for his encounters, which involved much younger men and teenagers from a lower social class.

THE SECRET HISTORY OF HUNKY GAY MALES via SLATE

14.jpg.CROP.original-original

SLATE: In the same way that porn magazines are often hidden under pillows or locked away on the top shelves of closets, the history of “beefcake” photography has been highly secretive. The photographer and models who created the hunky, hyper-masculine work beginning in the 1940s right up to the pre-disco age, did it on the sly often dodging strict obscenity laws that landed some of them in prison, forced them to endure harassment and attacks, and kept almost all of them hiding deep in the closet.

220221.jpg.CROP.original-original

For Petra Mason, the editor of 100% Rare All Natural Beefcake, published by Rizzoli, trying to track down the images, and, more significantly, the holder of the copyrights, turned out to be a bit like falling down a rabbit hole. READ THE WHOLE STORY HERE @ SLATE

KINDRED SPIRIT: Beauregard Houston-Montgomery @ new york social diary (via mr. simpson)

P2200554

P2210072

By Sian Ballen & Lesley Hauge
Photographs by Jeff Hirsch

Does the St. Mark’s Place railroad apartment belonging to Beauregard Houston-Montgomery qualify as a period piece? People in New York don’t live like this any longer, utterly, even vulnerably, themselves amid the accumulated evidence of a lifetime’s fascination with something unconventional—in this case dolls and dollhouses. Beauregard’s particular interest is in more contemporary dolls and, especially their accessories. It occurred to us later, after talking to him, that by charting the changes and the ever-expanding line of accessories belonging to Barbie, Bratz and American Girl, the history of post-war American life can itself be told. A photographer, archivist and writer, he has written a memoir, “Dollhouse Living” (Fotofolio Inc.) accompanied by his own strange and moody photographs of dollhouse interiors, which he bases on old films of the 1950s and 1960s.
