In many countries around the world, June is Pride Month, a time when LGBTQ communities celebrate themselves and the accomplishments in their efforts for equality. It's a time to celebrate choosing pride over shame. Not all of the characters below started out with confidence in themselves and their identities, and in many places and times it was not safe to be "out of the closet," but all evolved into brave forces for empowerment. Which of these well-known LGBTQ characters best represents the spirit of pride?

(The original character-poll went live in June 2016; this version is updated with many newer characters.)

Harvey Milk, Marina or Sean.

I feel like some of the others are not necessarily "brave forces for empowerment", and don't need to be.

Thank you, Pencho, for the great suggestion: The one photo already available includes both Laurel and her partner so I added both of them in the same option.

Although this was originally a poll of well known characters, I'm considering adding characters from the following films, even though they aren't necessarily very well-known, and the list already includes a few lesser-known characters. If you have any suggestions, well known or not, please let me know. 

My Beautiful Laundrette
Tangerine
My Own Private Idaho

I think they are at least as well known as some of the other films currently in your list.

But Idaho may not be the best example of pride or empowerment. If that's your theme, the list could be more focused on that.
