- There has been very less representation of the LGBTQ community in Bollywood and Hollywood films and soap operas. There have been countless stories of many mainstream lead actors having to hide their reality and take on a completely different persona. However, things are gradually changing and we are seeing more and more representation of the alternate sexualities on the big screen. Thanks to the OTT boom such stories are now coming to light and the visibility is steadily increasing. However, to this very day, there are many actors from the aforementioned film fraternities who are still closeted and are not willing or ready to come out. Their shenanigans are well known to the industry insiders but to the general public, they present a completely different picture of themselves. On the other hand, there are many who have come out and publicly accepted their orientation without a worry about their career.
