Hola, beautiful souls! 🌈🎭

Dive into Week 2 of “Queer History 101” with Tiffany as we journey through the poetic alleys of Spain, celebrating the genius of Federico Garcia Lorca. πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡ΈβœοΈ

Born in 1889, Lorca wasn’t just a poet; he was a revolution in Spanish literature. πŸ“–βœ¨ As part of the iconic Generation of ’27, he breathed life into words, leaving an indelible mark on art and culture. But beneath the verses, Lorca’s true identityβ€”a proud gay manβ€”remained veiled, often overshadowed by societal norms and censorship. 🌈🚫

With close ties to the legendary Salvador Dali 🎨, their bond, rich in letters and whispered tales, paints a picture of love, friendship, and defiance against societal expectations. πŸ’žπŸ’Œ

Yet, Lorca’s brilliance was tragically dimmed in 1936, silenced for his identity and beliefs. πŸ–€πŸ₯€ Today, we reclaim his legacy, celebrating him not just as a literary icon but as a shining beacon for the LGBTQ+ community. 🌈🌟

Join us in honoring Lorca and countless others who dared to be true amidst adversity. 🌈❀️ Let’s ensure their stories are told, their voices heard, and their legacies celebrated. Until next time, keep turning the pages of history! πŸ“šβœ¨
