'Kentucky bills seek to ban 'ex-gay therapy' for minors' & other Thur midday news briefs

22 openly LGBTQ Oscar winners, those who came out after winning, and actors winning/nominated portraying LGBTQ characters

Let's  bring it down this week with some history. Oscar season is in full swing and in tribute of that, I found some historical videos about LGBTQ Oscar winners and actors who either won or were nominated for the coveted award portraying LGBTQ characters.

No doubt, some folks will most likely point out the people missing - if any - from these videos. I expect (and hope) that they will generate lots of discussion.

This last video is inaccurately titled because only some of the characters were lesbian. Others were bisexual and transgender. But other than that, the video is still a delight to watch. Some of the nominees (Cher, Whoopi Goldberg) received their first Oscar nominations portraying these characters.
