There were a few LGBT wins at the Golden Globes this year. The biggest was for the Amazon series “Transparent” that took home the Golden Globe for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy. The series creator Jill Soloway accepted the award & dedicated it to the memory of Leelah Alcorn, a trans teen who committed suicide in December. “Transparent” lead Jeffrey Tambor won Best Actor in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy who plays a father transitioning into a woman. The category was presented perfectly by the LGBT icon comedian Lilly Tomlin & legendary actress Jane Fonda. In his acceptance speech Tambor stated, “This is big. This is much bigger than me.” And after he made the usual niceties he stated directly to the transgender community adding, “Thank you for your courage, thank you for your inspiration, thank you for your patience & thank you for letting us be part of the change.” Other notable LGBT wins were Matt Bomer who won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Mini-Series or TV Movie for his role as an AIDS positive journalist in "The Normal Heart." Bomer thanked his husband & 3 children. Of course the most controversial skit was with openly bisexual Margaret Cho who didn’t hold back at the Golden Globes mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un dressed as Korean leader & posing for a photo & selfie with Meryl Streep then took the stage with hosts Amy Poehler & Tina Fey.
