In light of pride month, I have listed my top 5 LGBTQ role models. Of course there are plenty more, but these are some that I find are not recognized often in their work. (all pictures have been taken off of each role models’ instagram) Here you go:
“Lesboon” from Buzzfeed’s Ladylike. She is very up front about her sexuality, and loves to make fun of herself and have a good time.
Lesbian and genderfluid actor (they/them). They are from many tv shows, movies, and short films and are a wonderful and hilarious person. They show a lot of love for the world and want to change it for the better.
They are most known for their role as Theo (who used to be called Susie) on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. They used their own experiences as a nonbinary/genderqueer person to shape the character of Theo who comes out as a transgender male when they change their name in the series. They are one of the youngest non-binary/genderqueer actors in Hollywood. They identify as pansexual and genderqueer.
Rosa Diaz from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. She is bi both in the show and in real life. She is constantly advocating for LGBT rights and wants to make the world a better place.
He is most known for his roles as Blue in Love, Simon and for playing Wally West in Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. He came out as bi in 2017. He has been more active and open about the LGBT community since then and is an inspiration to the LGBT community.
