Know this: I do not post here! My blog, which is devoted exclusively to queer history and literature, is linked above under 'website'. The vast list of Really Cool People below is my reading list, which I keep on Livejournal for the sheer convenience. I have an InsaneJournal, but there's nothing there- its creation followed the fandom split so I can keep track of emigrated friends.

By the way, the year listed, 1895, is the year Oscar Wilde was convicted. I could pick other cool and unlikely dates, like 1864, when Karl Heinrich Ulrichs published book one of Man-Manly Love, or 1793, when revolutionary France revised the law code and purposefully left out a sodomy law, but LJ looks askance at dates prior to about 1890. Hyakinthia is a feminised version of Hyakinthos, lover to Apollo. (Technically it should be Hyakinthe, but I started using it as a moniker before I realised that. Oh well.)

My LibraryThing: hyakinthia
Bookmooch: I'm Hyakinthia here, too.

Important things not related to myself:
Fagbug.com This woman, Erin Davies, had her car defaced in April 2007 with "fag" and "ur gay". She's going on a roadtrip around the US to not only give people a chance to see it and confront homophobia, she's also making a documentary about people's reactions to her and her car. She came to my town in July. Check out her site and her travel blog. She's yet to break even on the tshirts and stickers she's selling, so please donate!

The Breast Cancer Site
The Child Health Site
The Literacy Site
The Rainforest Site
