josé julio sarria, gay latino who ran for public office in 1961 - many many years before harvey milk

he ran for the san francisco board of supervisors and almost won by default, until people noticed there was a gay man running and immediately submitted everyone possible for the position. he didn’t win, but he still got 6000 votes, which shocked conservatives
he was also a drag queen popular at many of the balls at the time…and he still does it today (lookin good for a guy in his late 80s)!


It’s so funny how White “Queerstorians” conveniently never tell us about this beautiful querido right here. <3 

Know your full queer, not-whitewashed, history!
[Image description: Photo one is a black and white photo of Sarria that appears to be from the 1960s, he’s wearing a light-colored strapless gown, dangling earrings, a long necklace and gold bracelet, and is combing his hair while looking into a hand mirror. Photo two is a formal portrait of Sarria in dark suit and tie, as candidate for San Francisco Supervisor. Photo three is Sarria in the present, in a red updo wig, with a rhinestone tiara, and a red gown with matching embroidered jacket, long necklaces, one with an elaborate rhinestone pendant, long dangling earrings and a shade of red lipstick matching the gown flawlessly.]

"A woman of color’s self-love is political and radical, and it is unsettling for the status quo because she is choosing bravely to dismantle the narratives of racist aesthetics against her. So when people bully a girl of color for being content and satisfied with her appearance - a reality that is subjected to racist, sexist slurs in cosmetic industries - and when they tell her to be “humble” which is normative code for “Nah, you’re not special, you’re not light and delicate in a Eurocentric way” then she has every right to chew their hearts and spit them out. A non-white girl’s self-love is revolutionary and anyone trying to water it down needs to back right off."
