    Light in the Gloom

    I figure we could all use some good news:  Last night, transgender woman Amy Schneider won the "Jeopardy!" Tournament of Champions.

    Schneider said in a statement she plans to continue representing the trans community. "Being in places where people like me haven’t been before, it’s a very powerful thing to do."

    Especially right now.

    If you had any doubt about me, when I open my mouth 50 yards of purple chiffon come out.

    She [Angela Lansbury] made you love her whether she was a controlling stage mother, a murder obsessed writer, a human-meat baking cannibal or a soothing teapot.

    Dame Olivia

    Olivia Newton-John died today. The singer and actress was 73.

    She was also an LGBTQ icon, and it's a given that gay men are now crying and hiccuping "Hopelessly Devoted To You" from Ogunquit to West Hollywood.

    "Ellen" Ends

    After 19 seasons, the final episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" aired today. DeGeneres spoke of how attitudes toward LGBTQ people have changed in that period.

    "Twenty years ago when we were trying to sell the show, no one thought that this would work," said the out lesbian. "Not because it was a different kind of show, but because I was different."

    She recalled, "When we started the show, I couldn't say 'gay' on the show."

    Over in Tallahassee, Gov. Ron DeSantis observed, "That was such a fine tradition we nostalgia-loving Floridians decided to resurrect it."

    Vaid and Jean-Pierre

    Urvashi Vaid, one of the most potent leaders for LGBTQ rights we've ever had, died on Saturday. Among her many accomplishments, Vaid, who immigrated to the U.S. from India as a child, inspired other South Asian gays to be their whole selves.

    Karine Jean-Pierre, of Haitian extraction, said on Monday during her first briefing as the new White House press secretary, "I am a Black, gay, immigrant woman. The first of all three of those to hold this position."

    These two striking immigrant success stories settle it for me:  Lady Liberty is a lesbian.

    A Golden Opportunity

    In honor of Betty White's 100th birthday yesterday, a TV station in Orlando posted an unusual weather map

    Rose, N.Y., was expecting snow. Dorothy, Ark., would likely reach a high of 54 degrees. Blanche, Tenn., would be lucky to top 50 degrees. And Sophia, W.Va., would barely be above freezing.

    If you don't get it, you'll never be allowed to live in Gay, Ga.
