It Happened Today: March 19

Daniel Curzon (born March 19, 1938): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/1456394.html

Daniel Curzon is the author of Something You Do in the Dark, first published by G. P. Putnam in 1971 and which may be considered as one of the first gay protest novels. It is the story of a gay man's attempt to avenge his entrapment by a Detroit vice squad police officer by murdering him. Dropping Names was described by Ian Young in Torso as "ferociously honest and very funny" and by Philip Clark in Lambda Book Report as "a blunt, hilarious, page-turning ride that is...impossible to put down."

Freda Stark & Thelma Mareo: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4263011.html

Freda Stark was a New Zealand dancer. In 1933, Stark joined Ernest Rolls' revue, and met a young dancer named Thelma Trott, and the two women fell in love. In 1934 Trott married Eric Mareo, their conductor. In 1935 Trott took a fatal overdose of a prescription drug, leading to Mareo being charged with her murder. During the Second World War, she was a famed exotic dancer at Auckland's Wintergarden cabaret and nightclub, a favourite of American troops and she earned the title "Fever of the Fleet"

Lee Rowan: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/581174.html

Ransom was Lee Rowan's debut in the field of Historical Gay Fiction. "Rich, historical detail, engaging characters, and tightly written scenes of action - both nautical and romantic - set this Age of Sail tale of love and lust on the high seas far ahead of the rest of the fleet." - Josh Lanyon. An officer, a gentleman...and a sodomite. The first two earn honor and respect. The third, a noose. Even as he falls in love with his shipmate, David Archer realizes it is a hopeless passion.

Marty Robinson & Tom Doerr: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3509393.html

"In the heady days immediately before the world's first Gay Pride parade in 1970, Marty Robinson's photograph--along with his lover Tom Doerr--appeared on the cover of America's first gay weekly newspaper. Doerr, a graphic artist, had designed a symbol--the Lambda--to represent the new movement. "It represents energy too," he explained. Doerr's lover, Marty, was clearly a young man with energy, a winning kind of vitality, truly macho on the surface, but deeply caring within." --Jack Nichols
