It Happened Today: March 2

Charles Perez & Keith Rinehard:

Charles Perez (born March 2, 1963) is a former American television news reporter, anchor and former talk show host. In September 2009, Perez married his partner, Keith Rinehard, in Westport, Connecticut. In 2010 they have adopted a baby girl in Kansas: Madeline Michele was born Friday, July 9 at 10:06 a.m. in Hutchinson, Kansas. Confessions of a Gay Anchorman, Perez's autobiography, was published in 2011. Perez was the main evening anchor at Miami's ABC affiliate WPLG.

D.H. Lawrence (September 11, 1885 – March 2, 1930):

D.H. Lawrence married Frieda Weekley, from an aristocratic German family. Women in Love is based partly on Lawrence's clamorous relationship with the writer Katherine Mansfield, her husband, the literary critic John Middleton-Murray, and Lady Ottoline Morrell. It was during the composition of Women in Love that Lawrence, frustrated by his failure to forge a deeper bond with Murray, evidently had a sexual relationship with a Cornish farmer named William Henry Hocking in the town of Tregerthen.

David Stukas:

David Stukas has not written any screenplays, has never received a Pulitzer, and is not a regular contributor to National Public Radio. He lives in Palm Springs, California and is now using the pseudonym of David James. SOMEONE KILLED HIS BOYFRIEND is his first book: this debut novel introduces Robert, an underpaid, lovelorn copywriter for feminine hygiene products, his gorgeous, fabulously rich and totally shallow best friend Michael, and their pal, the statuesque, equally lovelorn Monette.

John Gray & Marc-André Raffalovich:

John Gray's life partner was Marc-Andre Raffalovich, a wealthy poet and early defender of homosexuality. Raffalovich himself became a Catholic in 1896. When Gray went to Edinburgh he settled nearby. The two maintained a chaste relationship until Raffalovich's sudden death in 1934. A devastated Gray died exactly four months later at St. Raphael's nursing home in Edinburgh after a short illness.

Madeleine Vionnet (June 22, 1876 – March 2, 1975):

Madeleine Vionnet was a French fashion designer. Called the "Queen of the bias cut" and "the architect among dressmakers", Vionnet is known today for her elegant Grecian-style dresses and for introducing the bias cut. Vionnet dominated haute couture in the 1930s setting trends with her sensual gowns worn by such stars as Marlene Dietrich, Katharine Hepburn and Greta Garbo. Vionnet's vision of the female form revolutionized modern clothing and the success of her unique cuts assured her reputation.

Matthew Mitcham & Lachlan Fletcher:

Matthew Mitcham (born 2 March 1988 in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia) is an Australian diver. He is 2008 Olympic champion in 10 m. Mitcham gained media coverage in Australia as reporters thought he was the first Australian to compete at the Olympic Games as an openly gay man at the time of his competition. Mitcham's then boyfriend, Lachlan Fletcher, attended the 2008 Summer Olympic Games as a spectator. His trip was sponsored by a grant from Johnson & Johnson's Athlete Family Support Program.

Michael Denneny (born March 2, 1943):

Michael Denneny, working for St. Martin's Press, was one of the first editors to publish openly LGBT material in the early 1970s, and he bought the highly literary, experimental novel and enthusiastically likened it to Angels in America. He planned to market it as a "gay novel," but he discovered that his straight colleagues "wondered why I thought of Angels in America as a "gay play" - they just saw it as an award-winning play about AIDS. So we decided to market KoolAIDS as a "literary" novel."

Renata Borgatti (March 2, 1894 – March 8, 1964):

Renata Borgatti was an Italian classical musician. In 1918, she entered into an affair with an Italian socialite Mimì Franchetti, until Franchetti left Capri and linked with American artist Romaine Brooks. Borgatti had an affair with Faith Mackenzie, whose husband Compton Mackenzie wrote Extraordinary Women, about a group of lesbians. In 1920, she also began a liaison with Brooks lasting at least 3 years. During the early-1920s, she became intimately involved with Winnaretta Singer.
