It Happened Today: March 24

Bob Mackie & Ray Aghayan: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3517712.html

Gorgen Ray Aghayan was a costume designer in the United States film industry. He won an Emmy Award in 1967 with his partner Bob Mackie for his work in Alice Through the Looking Glass. Aghayan was the lifetime partner of costume designer Bob Mackie for nearly 50 years. Aghayan was also nominated for an Academy Award for Costume Design three times for his work (Gaily, Gaily, Lady Sings the Blues, Funny Lady). Aghayan died on October 10, 2011 at his home in Los Angeles, California.

Charlotte Mew (November 15, 1869 – March 24, 1928): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3517091.html

Charlotte Mew's two serious love affairs, with the writer Ella D'Arcy in 1898 and with the popular novelist May Sinclair nine years later, came to nothing when the women did not return her affection. Sinclair cruelly publicized Mew's attraction to her and Mew became the butt of ridicule. Mew's poetry does not explicitly mention her lesbianism but encodes the emotional pain of hiding her sexuality in complex dramatic monologues on themes of loss and isolation.

Jim Parsons & Todd Spiewak: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3517295.html

Jim Parsons is an American actor. He is best known for playing Sheldon Cooper on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory. On May 23, 2012, an article in The New York Times noted that Parsons is gay and had been in a relationship for the last ten years. His partner is art director Todd Spiewak. In October 2013, Parsons called their relationship "an act of love, coffee in the morning, going to work, washing the clothes, taking the dogs out — a regular life, boring love".

John Cavanagh (September 28, 1914 - March 24, 2003): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3517599.html

John Cavanagh was a successful Irish London-based couturier. Cavanagh was renowned for his elegant tailoring, sense of colour and chic, as well as the high standard and quality of his designs. Many of his staff had formerly worked for couturiers such as Nina Ricci, Lucile, and Molyneux. His personal assistant, Lindsay Evans Robertson, described his work: "Paris in London. There was a lightness of touch, a feminine delicacy, a fragility unlike the work of any of the other London couturiers."

Lanford Wilson (April 13, 1937 – March 24, 2011): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/3516746.html

One of the pioneers of the gay American theater, Lanford Wilson proved himself to be a powerful voice speaking of the lives of gay men. One of Wilson's most successful portrayals of gay themes occurs in Lemon Sky, in which the main character, Alan (whose situation is based on Wilson's own life after high school), is forced to come to grips with his homosexuality when he attempts a reconciliation with his estranged father. The play is influenced by Tennessee Williams's The Glass Menagerie.

Margarethe Cammermeyer & Diane Divelbess: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4270045.html

Margarethe "Grethe" Cammermeyer served as a colonel in the Washington National Guard (Vietnam veteran, recipient of the Bronze star, mother of four) and became a gay rights activist. She received a B.S. in Nursing in 1963 from the University of Maryland. In 1988, when she was 46, she met her partner, Diane Divelbess. In 2012, after same-sex marriage was legalized in Washington state, Cammermeyer and her partner Diane Divelbess became the first same-sex couple to get a license in Island County.
