Miriam Margolyes Makes Debut Vogue Cover

British Actress and “Harry Potter” star Miriam Margolyes opened up to Vogue about her lesbian identity at the age of 82.

Margolyes made shocking revelations in her Vogue interview. From being out when homosexuality was illegal in the U.K. in 1966 to losing 34 friends during the AIDS epidemic, she has stressed that she had no desire to be straight.

“I knew it [being gay] wasn’t criminal because it was me. I couldn’t be criminal,” said Margolyes.

Margolyes expressed great worry over current U.K. politics, which are increasingly becoming anti-LGBT similar to Florida and Texas state policies.

“I just think England has become a s**t-hole…,” said Margolyes.

Stephanie Beatriz Opens Up About Her Sexual Identity

Stephanie Beatriz attended Tribeca’s Film Festival and admitted she chose to keep her bisexuality “hidden for a really long time” due to fear of backlash in her career.

“I thought, ‘Oh it may affect my career, it might have an effect on some of my relationships.’ And it did, and probably does,” Beatriz told Page Six.

Beatriz has talked about how marrying a man doesn’t limit or change her sexuality.

“I’m choosing to get married because this particular person brings out the best in me …  I’m still bi,” said Beatriz in an essay for GQ.

Today, Beatriz is focused on being proud of her identity and sharing the struggles the bisexual community face, especially during Pride.

Non-binary Stars Receive Tony Awards

The Broadway community seized the night when Alex Newell and J. Harrison Ghee became the first non-binary people to win Tony Awards for acting amid a strike that left the ceremony without a script.

“Thank you for the humanity. Thank you for my incredible company who raised me up every single day,” said Ghee.

Every winner’s speech was done without a teleprompter.

“Thank you for seeing me, Broadway. I should not be up here as a queer, non-binary, fat, Black little baby from Massachusetts. And to anyone that thinks that they can't do it, I’m going to look you dead in your face that you can do anything you put your mind to,” said Newell.
