    It should be noted that for all his contributions, Bayard Rustin has few honors… not even a marker for his final resting place on a private estate. There are but two memorials to him. One is a recognition of his role at the 1963 March on Washington, which says little to nothing about the man. The other is in Chicago. Dedicated on October 11, 2012 – National Coming-Out Day – Rustin’s beautiful bronze memorial on “The Legacy Walk” (http://www.legacyprojectchicago.org/Bayard_Rustin_Plaque_Image.html) is the only commemoration of his life that actually says he was gay. Rustin’s surviving partner, Walter Nagle, was on hand for the unveiling. Its installation marked the beginning of the final phase of the years-long campaign to secure for Bayard Rustin the long-overdue Medal of Freedom, which was finally awarded to him in November 2013 by President Barack Obama. The Rustin plaque remains one of the most sought-out on the half-mile LGBT historic museum walk, which is toured weekly by high school groups participating in the Legacy Project Education Initiative.

    Thanks for marking this NSFW.

    The johns report. Apart from the name, which seems hilariously apropos, I haven’t heard of it before, but it certainly underlines the persistence of “prurient interest.”

    How many volumes of photographs did the select person on the committee have to go through to find the one of the blond boy tied up? shades of John Briggs! Bryan Fischer! and a host of other moral crusaders.

    I know this is a *tad* profane, but you have to love Rude Pundit’s take on “Godly” cake makers…
