Homemade Pride Parade

A display of how a Homemade Pride parade during Covid 19 brings together, not only the LGBTQ+ community, but Everyone! After writing a recent post about how essential it is to educate children and young people on the importance of LGBTQ issues and history; I decided to follow that up with a Pride Parade celebration during Lockdown of Covid 19. But how you ask? Since life in lockdown has affected us all, whether it be home schooling, missing friends and family or even missing our favourite restaurants the importance of trying to maintain some form of normality has never been more significant! This being said all of London’s Pride events were cancelled. Many of the events being transformed into part of a virtual online pride. Including online live drag shows, talent acts, Q&A sessi...

Russian Foreign Ministry formally told-off the UK, US and Canadian Embassies for flying a rainbow flag during pride month.

Homophobia at its purest state. “Yes, we passed a law banning the propaganda of homosexuality among minors. So what? Let people grow up, become adults and then decide their own destinies.” https://twitter.com/CanadaRussia/status/1276863053976436736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1276863053976436736%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinknews.co.uk%2F2020%2F07%2F29%2Frussia-pride-flag-foreign-ministry-complaint-uk-us-canadian-embassy-rainbow-lgbt%2F This is what Putin said during the Pride month when he got told that the US Embassy was flying a rainbow flag out of their windows, but now things got formal and the Russian Foreign Ministry sent an official complaint to the UK, US and Canadian Embassies for having flown a rainbow flag during the pride month.

Polish President accuses media of spreading fake news about him and his homophobia

The LGBT+ Polish population is in serious danger due to a rise of homophobia justified by Polish president. Andrzej Duda - president of Poland - continues his homophobic attacks and now he has accused the media of spreading “fake news” about his homophobic views. He has just signed a sweeping anti-LGBT pledge - as we reported here - and even with proofs of his words and acts against all LGBT+ rights in this country, he is denying his homophobic acts. Presidential Elections - June 28 - are just around the corner, and in a tweet he wrote in English he raged against media saying: “Yet again, as part of dirty political fight, my words are put out of context. I truly believe in diversity and equality. At the same time beliefs of any minority cannot be imposed on a majority under the false p...

Spongebob is officially Queer, and we love him even more.

Nickelodeon tweeted about Spongebob's sexuality on Saturday to celebrate Pride Month 2020. This tweet is what all Spongebob's lovers were waiting for (or maybe not?), but one this is for sure: our beloved sea-sponge is finally "ready" to be who he really is. https://twitter.com/Nickelodeon/status/1271795092391682048 This tweet shows pictures of Spongebob, alongside canonically queer characters Schwoz Schwartz from Henry Danger and Korra from Avatar: The Last Airbender spin-off Legends of Korra. The tv broadcasters wrote: "Celebrating Pride with the LGBTQ+ community and their allies this month and every month." Do you remember when the show creator - Stephen Hillenburg - said that Spongebob was asexual? https://twitter.com/Mbfly6/status/1271877037578477569?ref_src=twsrc%5Etf...

Sophia Loren and Barilla’s inclusive pasta commercial

Barilla is being surprisingly more inclusive than ever. A few years ago Barilla - the famous Italian Pasta producer - ended up on all newspapers and blogs after their spokesperson admitted they would have never pictured an LGBT+ family in their commercials as the only kind of family they believed in was the one made of a man and a woman. Clearly their sales dropped to the minimum and they got involved into a media battle that pictured them - with obvious and unassailable reasons - like Homophobic and racist. Well.. a few months later, they had to publicly admit their "indelicate" behaviour and finally they started being so LGBT+ friendly, and LGBT+ allies that we still find it hard to believe today. Even their pasta is not the best you can find on shelves, their investments in te...
Polands gets even more homophobic with their president picturing the LGBT+ community as enemies.

Polands gets even more homophobic with their president picturing the LGBT+ community as enemies.

And some people still ask why we need Gay Prides every year. The air in Poland is getting barely breathable for the LGBT+ community that after the “LGBT+ free zones” are now being portrayed as enemies by Poland’s president which is looking for a second term of power in this month of elections. To make sure he gets a better social impact on the population, Andrzej Duda pleased those nazi-catholic groups of people (including religious representatives) by signing a “family-values-declaration”, where he promised to always “protect children from LGBT+ ideology” and prohibit the spread of such ideas involving public institutions that will have to make sure that nothing like this will ever happen. President Duda said: “This is a foreign ideology that we won’t allow to be introduced into our cou...
Here’s why you’d better come out

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...
