01-23-1819 – 1896 Mary Charlotte Lloyd – Born in Denbighshire, Wales. She was a sculptor.
Her father was a squire over many counties, owning 4,300 acres of land, and Lloyd inherited money from a maiden aunt, as well as gifts from Eleanor Charlotte Butler and Sarah Ponsonby, the Ladies of Llangollen. Lloyd studied art and worked with French artist Rosa Bonheur (March 16, 1822 – May 25, 1899). In 1853 she was working in the studio of Welsh sculptor John Gibson in Rome. In 1861, while in Rome, she met Frances Power Cobbe. Both being nonconformists, they connected with like minded women in Italy. In 1863, they settled together in London. In April 1884 the couple moved to Lloyd’s Welsh estate Hengwrt and lived together until Lloyd’s death in 1896. Letters by Cobbe referred to Lloyd as “husband,” “wife,” as well “dear friend.”

and patroness of the arts. She had an affair with Romain Brooks. She also had a long term affair with author Gabriele d’Annunzio. She was a celebrity and femme fatale, and dominated and delighted European society for nearly three decades. The beautiful and extravagant hostess to the Ballets Russes was something of a legend among her contemporaries. She astonished society by parading a with a pair of leashed cheetahs and wearing live snakes as jewelry. In 1910 Casati took up residence at the Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice (now the home of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection) where her soirées would become legendary. From
1919 to 1920 she lived at Villa San Michele in Capri. Her time on the Italian island provided a tolerant home to a wide collection of artists, gay men, and lesbians in exile. By 1930, Casati had amassed a personal debt of $25 million. She fled to London, where she lived in comparative poverty. She died at her residence, 32 Beaufort Gardens in Knightsbridge at the age of 76. Characters based on Casati were played by Vivien Leigh in La Contessa (1965) and by Ingrid Bergman in the film A Matter of Time (1976).

It was the first rock musical on Broadway, the first Broadway show to feature full nudity, and the first to feature a same-sex kiss. At the center of Hair is a bisexual triangle between the characters Berger, Sheila, and Claude. But the central love relationship in the show is between
Claude and Berger, the characters based on the relationship of Rado and Ragni. There is also the love relationship between Sheila and Jeannie. The Broadway production received two Tony nominations, and the cast album went to number one, receiving a Grammy. The musical had four number one hit singles, Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In, Hair, Easy to be Hard, and Good Morning Sunshine. In 1979, Hair was made into a film.

Human Rights in global conflict: Trans/Pans vs LGB/ vs Heterosexual women
01-23-2015 A federal judge, U.S. District Judge Callie V.S. Granade, ruled that Alabama’s constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, known as the Sanctity of Marriage Amendment, violates the 14th Amendment’s due process and equal protection clauses. “If anything,
Alabama’s prohibition of same-sex marriage detracts from its goal of promoting optimal environments for children,” Granade writes. “Those children currently being raised by same-sex parents in Alabama are just as worthy of protection and recognition by the State as are children being raised by opposite-sex parents. Yet Alabama’s Sanctity laws harms the children of same-sex couples for the same reasons that the Supreme Court found that the Defense of Marriage Act harmed children of same-sex couples.”

LGBTQ2 Blogger Nina Notes:
Most of the above is copied from one of the sites cited as sources in the daily post and as linked at the end of every post.
the history of nonheterosexuals and different historical eras views are such that there is a there is a danger to apply current decadish of time, in 2021 to past decades and centuries; particularly without application of complete history.
There is a difference between adopting male attire in the era when clothing was spelled out in law, and lesbians who passed in public, differ from those who only change clothing for personal sexual gratification, in private “cross dressors” in the language of this same era.
Laws regarding clothing exist in many nations, including capitol punishment, this is why sexual orientation is a demographic, That heterosexual women continue to be denied reproductive rights, education and professions, even where won at court; that women are a demographic. That male and female persons who are ethnically different from the majority population and with differing experiences being merged into colour blind visible minorities are differing demographics.
the farther back in time the given individual is, and why on this blog, there is a under theme of Elvis Presley, as the most prominent modern era person of the 1900s Current Era; who was photographed almost every day of his adult life., and who’s number of days on this planet have resulted in his being one of the most recognizable individuals across all cultures on the planet, which in 1950s was 1 billion people, and by his death almost 4 billion, to the 8 billion currently existing on earth.
