Dunham focused on premature babies and newborns, becoming chief of child development at the Children’s Bureau in 1935. She became one of Yale’s School of Medicine’s first female professors. From 1949 to 1951 she studied the problem of premature birth with an international team of experts for the World Health Organization in Geneva. Dunham retired in 1952. In 1957 the American Pediatric Society awarded her their highest honor, the John Howland Award. She was the first woman pediatrician to receive the award; her life partner, Martha May Eliot was the second (honored in 1967). LGBT historian and scholar, Lillian Faderman stated, “From 1910 to Ethel’s death in 1969, the two women were inseparable. As a couple, Martha Eliot and Ethel Dunham…succeeded in times that were as unsympathetic to professional women as they were to lesbians. Their partnership nourished and sustained them through their entire adult lives.”

1890, Russiqa – Vaslav Nijinsky (March 12, 1890 – 8 April 1950) is born in Kiev. He was a ballet dancer and choreographer cited as the greatest male dancer of the early 20th century. His love affair with choreographer Diaghilev (19 March] 1872 – 19 August 1929), his marriage, and his eventual madness led to his becoming an icon in the arts.
Cited as the greatest male dancer of the early 20th century. In 1909 he joined the Ballet Russes, a new ballet company started by Sergei Diaghilev. Nijinsky became the company’s star and lovers with Diaghilev. With the Ballet Russes, Nijinsky had the chance to expand his art and experiment with dance and choreography; he created new directions for male dancers. He became internationally famous. In 1913 Nijinsky married Hungarian Romola de Pulszky. She had ‘stalked’ the company and Nijinsky since 1912. The
marriage caused a break with Diaghilev, who soon dismissed Nijinsky from the company. With no alternative employer available, he tried to form his own company, but he was not a good businessman and was unsuccessful. In 1914, because of his Russian citizenship, he was placed under house arrest in Budapest, Hungary during WWI. He was only released because the American promoter of the Ballets Russes’ second US tour stipulated that Nijinsky had to be part of the company. Nijinsky was given permission to leave Hungary for New York in September 1916. The tour was a financial and artistic disaster. Nijinsky became increasingly mentally unstable with the stresses to manage tours himself and deprived of opportunities to dance, which had always been his obsession. After a tour of South America in 1917, and due to travel difficulties imposed by the war, the family settled in St. Moritz, Switzerland. He was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 1919 and committed to an asylum for the first time. For the next 30 years, he was in and out of institutions.

1972 musical film Cabaret, which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. She married four times to men who had active sex lives with other men. Minnelli says she first became aware of AIDS when she invited Rock Hudson to be her date for a charity dinner. “When he showed up he looked so ill, something was wrong, but of course you can’t say. ‘You look bad’. But then I began to hear more about the disease, and I called Elizabeth Taylor, and I said, ‘Elizabeth, something is wrong. Something is happening, and people are not talking about it enough, and we have to do something. And so we did, and that helped lead to AmfAR (the American Foundation for AIDS Research). And then it became a movement.” In 2007, she stated in an interview with Palm Springs Life magazine, “AmfAR is important to me because I’ve lost so many friends that I knew [to AIDS].” In 1994, she recorded the Kander & Ebb tune The Day After That and donated the proceeds to AIDS research. That same year she performed the song in front of thousands in Central Park at the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

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.
