Here’s why you’d better come out

Coming out of the closet allows you to confirm your identity and feel acknowledged. But it can't be an obligation. It has to be your choice. Coming out of the closet can be hard. It can stress you out, especially if you live in a highly homophobic family and/or environment. Whoever has already come out knows the benefits that come after speaking the truth. But we all remember the insecurities and unbearable pain before coming out. Almost all non-heterosexual people (in particular those born in the XX century) spent years and years denying their real sexual orientation. Some still do and hide in the closet, but that's a different story. Those among us who have overcome fear and shame know how better life can be once out of the closet. Nonetheless, in some cases, it's not as easy as i...
Are the labels really necessary?

Are the labels really necessary?

Understanding lesbian labels and their purpose. Are we conforming to heteronormativity? The terms femme, butch, stud, stem, (along with many others) are continuously thrown around when it comes to the lesbian community, with these terms seeming much more prominent in the past few years. But why? Where did they even come from? The use of lesbian labels originated in the 1890s, with butch referring to a female butcher, “a hard-fisted woman of the people”. The term acting as a way to specifically identify homosexual women. As society assumed butch women were masculine, the labels acted as a way to highlight their lack of femininity, also deeming them outcasts within communities. Many of these assumptions about butch women are still upheld within the LGBTQ+ community. Such being that a but...
JK Rowling anti-trans tweets are such a disgusting side of someone who gained tons of money with stories of character not fitting in what she defines “normality”.

JK Rowling anti-trans tweets are such a disgusting side of someone who gained tons of money with stories of character not fitting in what she defines “normality”.

Her PR team blamed on middle-age related issues when it happened first, but Ms. Rowling proves to be a real TERF, and she’s not ashamed. It all started when JK Rowling took issue with an article in Devex, the media platform for the global development community, with the headline: “Creating a more equal post-COVID-19 world for people who menstruate.” You may ask your-self why. Well, she apparently got offended with the sentence “who menstruate” …. now, honey, wouldn’t have it been easier to ask your fans to donate for this project or simply dislike the project and promote a different one? Or simply ignore this? There are so many sentences on LGBT+ communities that I find offensive and inappropriate or even ignorant - just like your anti-trans tweets - but I do turn into a racist. I rather...

Dear Class of 2020 – Beyonce’s Touching speech

Dear Class of 2020 is a virtual commencement celebration bringing together inspirational leaders and artists to celebrate graduates, their families, and their communities. And today we chose Beyoncé's celebrative video, where  the artist touches so many delicate, interesting and still heavy problems for this society...worldwide. Sexism "The entertainment business is still very sexist, is still very male dominated. And as a woman, I did not see enough female role models giving the opportunity to do what I knew I had to do". Beyoncé has been always fighting to let the world understand that there must be space for everyone at our tables, like she has made space for all diversities at her table (talking about her label and company). "One fo the main purposes of my art for many years h...

Alt-right 4chan users are planning a cyber attack to the LGBT+ community during Pride Month.

This group of homophobes is plotting to hijack LGBT+ all the online events for the Pride Month starting on June 1 by clogging social media with poisonous homophobia and boycotting supportive brands. This is something they are already organising since early May, according to an archived version  of what they have called “Operation Pridefall”. Their plan is to create a multitude of fake accounts on social medias and start posting and share ANTI-LGBT+ contents and to also target those brands that will have digital campaigns linked to the Pride Month. Targeted companies could include Starbucks, Amazon, Coca Cola, several British and American media outlets, Levis, Adidas, or still, some local law enforcement departments. Some members of Alt-Right 4chan would supposedly already have supplied ...

First lesbian couple to marry in Costa Rica

Such an emotional ceremony which was also broadcast live on National TV. Costa Rica recently made equal marriage legal and just a few minutes after midnight Daritza Araya and Alexandra Castillo celebrated their marriage and love in San Isidro de Heredia. Sí Acepto Campaing director Gia Miranda said: “As the country and the world face the difficult situation of the pandemic, this historic milestone becomes even more relevant. It’s a message of a better future for thousands of couples and families who will receive the legal recognition they deserve.” Standing before a marriage officiant in a face mask given the hard situation that South and Central Americas are still facing with Coronavirus, they each exchanged their vows: “With this ring I join you in marriage. This ring symbolises ...

IDAHOT 2020 – This is why we must not be ashamed of who we are.

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia 2020.  Let's start with one fact: ours is a male-dominated, patriarchal, and obsessively religious society. This implies that if you are not male, heterosexual, and religious, somehow, you do not fit in this normality. What if you don’t fit in then? Well, then a part of our society feels authorized to be offensive and violent with you. Like if they were Gods able to decide what’s the right kind of love. Their targets to hit are always minorities. It is easy to blame those who are numerically lower or physically less strong. Technically, women would not be a minority, but as women, they are seen as inferior by some men. According to the prevailing patriarchal male chauvinism, women are inferior beings who have very specific ...
Being Raped? I thought it was what normally “happened to gay men”.

Being Raped? I thought it was what normally “happened to gay men”.

Stonewall co-founder Michael Cashman candidly revealed that he had been raped so regularly while growing up that he thought it was just "what normally happened to gays". Speaking to The Guardian, Michael opened up on how his childhood in East London and his theatrical career both suffered from the trauma of continuing sexual violence. Cashman - who is now 69 - described how, at the age of 12, performing in "Oliver!", He was approached by a cast member who sexually took advantage of the young actor. "I wanted my mother to rescue me," Cashman said, but this has only been one of a long series of abuses that the former Eastenders star has endured in his life so far. The first abuse at 8 years of age. Sexual abuse marked his youth: at eight years of age Michael was sexually assaulted by a ...

50Cent and his homophobic posts on Instagram

Such a repeater. Yes, 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) thinks that trolling Young Buck (since last year, apparently) is fun, but what is more fun is to make jokes on LGBT+ people.  Really sweetie? But how did it start?  Last year around this time he started trolling Young Buck on line with this post: ““Young Buck is almost ready to drop his album. He worked hard on this project, I told him his personal choice to date a tran sexual [sic] will confuse some of his core audience but with the support of the LGBT+ he should be fine.” A big homophobic offense for the LGBT+ Community - especially for trans people - and a free unneeded disgusting joke toward a colleague. Already in 2015 he wrote: “If you are a man and your [sic] over 25 and you don’t eat p***y just kill yourself damn ...
