Alright, fam, I thought I was going to be taking a break from writing about Supernatural for a while…but once again the fandom proves that we are a family, and I wanted to share something beautiful that is happening in the fandom right now.
After the finale aired this past Thursday, a few SPN fans (on Twitter: @hellerupdates, @crowleybeans) started a fundraising campaign to benefit The Trevor Project in honor of Castiel and the representation that he brought to Supernatural. Over the past two days, The Castiel Project has raised over $28,000, with more people donating by the minute.
Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall
RiotsRebellion, and the beginning of the movement for LGBTQ rights in the United States. As a proud member of the community, this history is important to me, especially since it was not taught to me growing up. Everything I learned about the history of LGBTQ+ peoples, I learned from the internet. As such, I thought it was time that I contributed a short informative article about the community’s origins, so that others like me, who are growing up in a conservative–probably Christian–household can learn about the people who paved the way for them to have the right to express who they are.
In a few days, it will be the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, As we remember those who fought and struggled to give us the rights that we enjoy today, we should also remember that many of our LGBTQ+ family members around the world are still struggling.
Here are a few LGBTQ+ non-profit organization to consider donating to this Pride Month.
It seems to be en vogue to make a biopic about a rockstar struggling with identity and fame. (Even more so if the rockstar wore a lot of sequins and took a lot of drugs…but then, what rockstar in the early 70s didn’t?)
Following the success of last year’s Bohemian Rhapsody, director Dexter Fletcher (who took over the Queen biopic after Bryan Singer was fired) helms this film that is part musical, part biography, and part fantasy. It follows John from childhood until the 1980s, through some of the most turbulent moments of his life, and does not shy away from depicting the highs and lows of his career. Behind the glitter and the spectacle is a very honest approach to the storytelling.
Rocketman is more than just the story of a rockstar’s rise to fame; it’s the love story of Elton John.
Welp, I screwed up and missed my Motivation Monday post (oops…), so here I am, bringing you some RuPaul wisdom to get you through your Tuesday. And if you don’t know who RuPaul is, well, she’s the Glamazon, Supermodel of the World who has dragged (pun intended) her career into an international spotlight and made the drag community an international phenomenon with the hit reality series RuPaul’s Drag Race. (He’s also an author, musician, actor, and probably the owner of a small empire.)
Bohemian Rhapsody is the musical biography film of the year; Queen’s music has been heard around the world, and there is scarcely a sporting event in the United States that doesn’t play “We Will Rock You” at least once. Their music is ubiquitous (and really damn catchy), but what of the man behind the voice? Who was Freddie Mercury, really? The answer is both simple and complicated at once: Freddie Mercury is Freddie Mercury.
