Władziu Valentino Liberace (May 16, 1919 – February 4, 1987), mononymously known as Liberace, was an American pianist and vocalist. In 1982, Scott Thorson, Liberace's 22-year-old former chauffeur and live-in lover of five years, sued the pianist for $113 million in palimony after he was let go by Liberace. Liberace continued publicly to deny that he was homosexual and insisted that Thorson was never his lover. The case was settled out of court in 1986, with Thorson receiving a $75000 settlement.

Pocos saben, que el responsable de que hoy en día haya tanta información rigurosa sobre la sexualidad humana es un biólogo de nombre Alfred Kinsey, que allá por los inicios de 1950, se atrevió a plantear la necesidad de estudiar el comportamiento sexual en sí mismo, con un método científico. Esto significaba apartar a la religión y la ética que hasta el momento habían impuesto su interpretación de la sexualidad.
