Marilyn Monroe

Nu cred ca are nevoie de prea multa introducere, toata lumea a auzit de ea. Sex-simbolul sec xx si una dintre cele mai frumoase femei a tuturor timpurilor, parerea mea. Fie vorba intre noi, cred ca o sa-mi fac un tatuaj cu chipul ei la un moment in viata asta 😀

Marilyn Monroe (născută Norma Jeane Mortensen, n.1 iunie1926 – d. 5 august1962) a fost o actriță, sex simbol și divă pop a secolului al XX-lea. Ascensiunea lui Monroe la nivelul de celebritate a început cu selectarea ei pentru a poza în câteva reviste, asta în timp ce primul ei soț făcea parte din Marina Comercială. Cea mai însemnată parte a filmelor ei au fost făcute pentru 20th Century Fox, unde și-a luat și numele care a făcut-o celebră. După câteva apariții minore în decurs de câțiva ani, Marilyn a început să devină cunoscută pentru talentul ei de comediană, ajutată fiind și de remarcabila ei prezență scenică. Și-a îndreptat eforturile către apariții mai consistente, și, la un anumit moment al carierei sale, a reușit să-și îndeplinească acest scop. Circumstanțele misterioase ale morții lui Marilyn au fost subiectul multor speculații, dar nu au reușit să-i știrbească reputația de cea mai legendară figură publică a tuturor timpurilor.

Oameni interesanti

O sa incep de azi o noua categorie „Oameni interesanti”. Imi propun ca in aceasta categorie sa vb cate putin despre oamenii care au realizat sau care realizeaza ceva in viata asta. Persoane care din punctul meu de vedere merita respect sau poate ca pe unii doar ii admir eu si vreau sa aflati si voi despre ei.

Prima persoana despre care o sa va ofer informatii azi este Harvey Milk – pentru cei care nu stiu nimic despre el va recomand filmul „Milk”. Ca un mic rezumat este primul politician care a recunoscut ca este gay si care a luptat pentru drepturile LGBT :D.

Harvey Bernard Milk (May 22, 1930 – November 27, 1978) was an American politician who became the first openly homosexual person to be elected to public office in California and the United States when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Politics and gay activism were not his early interests; he was not open about his homosexuality and did not participate in civic matters until around the age of 40, after his experiences in the counterculture of the 1960s.

Milk moved from New York City to settle in San Francisco in 1972 amid a migration of gay men to the Castro District. He took advantage of the growing political and economic power of the neighborhood to promote his interests, and ran unsuccessfully for political office three times. His theatrical campaigns earned him increasing popularity, and Milk won a seat as a city supervisor in 1977, part of the broader social changes the city was experiencing.

Milk served almost 11 months in office and was responsible for passing a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city. On November 27, 1978, Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, another city supervisor who had recently resigned but wanted his job back. Milk’s election was made possible by and was a key component of a shift in San Francisco politics. The assassinations and the ensuing events were the result of continuing ideological conflicts in the city.

Despite his short career in politics, Milk became an icon in San Francisco and a martyr in the gay community.[note 1] In 2002, Milk was called „the most famous and most significantly open LGBT official ever elected in the United States”.[1] Anne Kronenberg, his final campaign manager, wrote of him: „What set Harvey apart from you or me was that he was a visionary. He imagined a righteous world inside his head and then he set about to create it for real, for all of us.”[2] Milk was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.
