Viewed as a prominent “heartthrob” of the Hollywood Golden Age, he achieved stardom with roles in films such as Magnificent Obsession (1954), All That Heaven Allows(1955) and Giant (1956), for which he received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor, and found continued success with a string of romantic comedies co-starring Doris Day in Pillow Talk (1959), Lover Come Back (1961) and Send Me No Flowers (1964).

Shortly before his death from AIDS-related complications, Hudson made the first direct contribution, $250,000, to amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, helping launch the non-profit organization dedicated to AIDS/HIV research and prevention; it was formed by a merger of a Los Angeles organization founded by Dr. Michael S. Gottlieb, Hudson’s physician, and Elizabeth Taylor, his friend and onetime co-star, and a New York-based group.

from the article:
Furthermore, LGBT propaganda is not limited to homosexual relationships alone. In fact, LGBT politics runs hand in hand with the toxic ideology of gender identity politics. Gender Identity overlords believe that biological sex is a myth, that there are an infinite number of genders and that gender is a social construct. These are not just scientifically incorrect but dangerous ideas. It is utterly ridiculous to claim that gender does not have a firm basis in biology.
Nonetheless, LGBT activists want children to learn that ‘gender is fluid’ and if a boy claims to be a girl, then he deserves to be treated as a girl by everyone else around them and anything short of that is bigotry. The natural consequence of this is the fact that there have been quite a few horror stories where biological men were placed in female prisons and then went on to rape the female inmates. There was also the case of Jessica Yaniv who threatened to sue women because the women were not comfortable with waxing Yaniv’s male genitalia.
