Yes, but in order to be listed they must have both a movie biopic about them and must be some type of performance artist.

A lot of these suggestions have yet to have a movie biopic made about them,

P.S. I removed Singers and Musicians from the scope and have given them their own poll suggestion, (given the volume of actress and musician biopics) Inspirational Women's History Singer and Musician Biopics,

P.S.S. I left some widely seen and more negative role model biopics like
Mommie Dearest (1981) on the the list. I took a contrarian view that it might inspire some to be a better mother or better father or not want to be that type of parent.
