—Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: Set in Jazz Age Australia, this charming, binge-worthy TV series features Essie Davis as beautiful, pro-gay, independent lady detective Phryne Fisher, who solves cases efficiently—and very fashionably. A group of solid supporting actors and guest stars, including lesbian actress Miriam Margolyes, helps even more.

—Keith Haring: The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing: Aimed at kids, this beautifully illustrated and written book follows iconic artist Keith Haring from his days doodling in his childhood home to his meteoric rise as one the most influential artists of the late '70s and '80s. His sister, Kay, wrote this interesting book.

—Valentine's Day sets: The His & Hers Set pairs two soft Turkish air-woven bathrobes with Limoges porcelain mugs and the newly designed "Pillow Talk" candle—specifically aromatized for the bedroom. Thankfully, with robes in unisex sizes small to large, this set thoughtfully suits "His & His" and "Hers & Hers" just as well. Another option is the Champagne Set, which includes two Italian lead-free crystallized glass flutes and a high-gauge stainless steel ice bucket. Visit SnoweHome.com .

—The Obama Years: The Power of Words: Premiering Monday, Feb. 27, on The Smithsonian Channel, this series focuses on six of the now-former president's notable speeches, including his 2004 Democratic National Committee keynote and his eulogy after the 2015 mass shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

—LGBTQ Stats: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer People by the Numbers: David Deschamps and former Chicagoan Bennett Singer have put together a comprehensive compendium that incorporates an LGBTQ lexicon and covers topics such as health, politics, public opinion, sex and violence.
