I agree with Dominic. Why should we be any different?
But on the other hand Mike, knowledge of the sexuality of historical characters, can make gay and bi more of a norm, as it really is. Instead of some obscure, hidden embarrassment, sexuality is just as much a part of a person, as their sex, race, and country of origin.
Knowing this information should not be used to judge them, but as a vehicle to pride and something that others can look at, as a positive. Just as it is important for African Americans to know the contributions of African Americans in history, it would be a positive for members of the LGBT community to know their history.
Some LGBT people were "heroes" and some were "villains," but many were just ordinary people like most of us. It would be great for young people to know that their great uncle, who never married, was single for more reasons than wanting to take care of a sickly family member, or that the two elderly ladies who walk arm and arm in the neighborhood, are more than just good lifetime friends.
While heterosexuals get to speak and even brag about their opposite sex partners and how that has impacted their lives, how those relationships, both negative and positive, help to change that person's path in life, how they work as a team, or how a break up has devastaded them, and everything else that goes along with being in a relationship, LGBT people are not always given that right.
On a Monday morning, when a person tells his/her co-workers about the movie he/she saw with their spouse over the weekend, no one blinks. But, mention that you saw the movie with your same sex spouse, and some will accuse you of flaunting and promoting homosexuality.
So I respectfully disagree. I do care about the sexuality of people in history, the sexuality of celebrities, as well as the sexuality of my neighbors. Most people will disclose their sexuality by wearing a wedding ring or engaging in discussions of their relationships and families. Why should we be any different?

In Sweetwater Tennessee, still waters run deep.... and under the water is some toxic mud....
"In choosing to name a group of people such as the Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT), you are choosing to group together a group of people who are not of the same race, but have made a personal and moral life style choice. Other groups who make a personal life style choice are drug user and sellers, gang members, prostitutes, cults and murderers"
Lovely place.... just lovely.
