THE GAY PRIDE

Gay Pride, also known as the LGBT pride, is the supportive stand against injustice and brutality towards the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community to advocate their self-declaration, morality, equality rights, boost their visibility as a social body, grow a community, and observe sexual diversity and gender differences.

Pride, in opposition to humiliation and social shame, is the preeminent perspective that strengthens many LGBT rights movements across the world. Pride has loaned its name to LGBT-themed groups, infrastructures, institutions, foundations, titles, and even a television station.

Varying from serious to celebratory, pride events usually happen at the LGBT Pride month or any other period that memorialize a turning point in the LGBT history. For instance is the Moscow Pride last May 2006 for the annual celebration of Russia’s decriminalization of homosexuality in 1993.

THE GAY LIFESTYLE TODAY!

According to the American Psychological Association, sexual orientation as an abiding pattern of passionate, romantic and/or sexual attractions to men, women or both sexuality. Based on this explanation, a person can live a diversity of religions, moral choices, and morality. There are gay individuals who do not like to attend parties, bisexual individuals who are Muslims and prefer staying in on weekends, and lesbians who clothe themselves modestly and would prefer visiting the library than attend a gay pride parade.

An “abiding pattern of passionate, romantic and/or sexual attractions” doesn’t say anything about the moral choices that an individual may make despite of or with those allures.

All things considered, the way to discipline this narration is not to accelerate the concept of ‘good gay’. The concept that only the white, cisgender, tamed gays who imitate heteronormative standards are value rights has been damaging to several other crucial beliefs. First, individuals can choose to interconnect religious faith or not; religion in and of itself doesn’t make any individual moral.

Added to that, gay individuals can create various decisions on how to declare their sexuality, as well as how to construct their relationships. They way to counteract fictions about the gay lifestyle is not to spotlight all of the gay individuals who maintain to validate to other features of prevailing culture due to this path eventually results in disgracing individuals who do not believe in these norms.

Rather, we can challenge the possibility of the “gay lifestyle” by lifting the lived involvement of LGBTQ individuals from varying backgrounds.

Eccentric people are all over the place, and they do everything. Large portions of them can’t help contradicting each other on everything from governmental issues to the best place to eat a burger. Individuals who distinguish as LGBTQ ought to be permitted the opportunity to give their individual lives and decisions a chance to represent them, much the same as straight individuals.

Beyond any doubt many individuals challenge grasping strangeness because of their comprehension of sacred text. Numerous researchers and evangelists have done amazing work to show why a queerphobic elucidation of Christianity is superfluous.

However, it stands to be expressed that somebody can differ with thoughts yet not with somebody’s presence. Saying that you can’t help contradicting somebody’s exceptionally being on the planet—an unchanging bit of their reality—is equivalent to stating that one can’t help contradicting rocks or the way that the sky is blue. All together for the difference to be regarded, the stone would need to end up something other than a stone, and the sky would need to lose its shading.

While it is imperative to battle against enactment and different strategies that mischief the LGBTQ people group, it is likewise essential to disassemble the points of view that undergird and permit these measures to go so far in any case. While they will not sign the bill, individuals who position themselves behind remarks, for example, “way of life” and “religious decision” certainly oil and keep up an arrangement of underestimation for some individuals.

THE RISE OF INDIE FILMS

A few years ago, it has been a custom set in the film industry to anticipate big-budgeted films such as Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Tangled (2012), and Spider Man 3 (2007) to be the greatest blockbuster hits of their respective years. But, as the years passed by, thus came the increase of the indie film culture and more and more self-supporting directors began entering into the concoction.

One can safely assume that this growth of indie films commenced with the release of the 1989 film “Sex Lies and Videotape” which was directed by Steven Soderbergh. The film follows an unorthodox story with a not so distinguished casting however the film itself was an instant hit as it served as a rung on the ladder to success for a lot of independent directors and producers.

But, Over time, not only do these directors and producers have aim their attention on low budgets but also being artistically independent. The prime example of the breakthrough independent films have reached can be added with the fact that the 2014 film “American Sniper” was one of the only big-budgeted films to have a chance at getting the Best Picture Award when in fact the contest had a number of indie films such as “Boyhood” and “Whiplash”.

The growth of the independent film culture has been enormous particularly in the past 10 years. The most famously known Oscar narrative is “David v Goliath”. Furthermore, the appearance of independent films has made the same circumstance based on the recognition and acceptance, independent films are conquering the competition in an industry that was once dominated by the Big Brothers who liked to create big-budgeted blockbuster films in the past, however, the overall dynamic is beginning to steer towards these artistically independent films.

In the United States alone, a huge turning point occurred last June 2013 when the Defense of Marriage Act & California’s Proposition 8 was shot down, with several celebrities declaring their support of the announcement. Some of you might say that it’s all talk, but a lot of celebrities have made action and gotten engaged or wedded since then. Here are some gay celebrity couples that tied the knot.

Ellen DeGeneres & Portia De Rossi

There was a total of only 19 guests, with a cute touch of handwritten vows. In a taping of The Ellen Show, afterward the California’s Supreme Court removed the ban on gay marriage, Ellen said she had plans to marry Portia. Obviously, they’ve already projected the marriage.

Elton John & David Furnish

Although it was an intimate ceremony, the couple decided to announce the celebration by publishing photos with the hashtag #ShareTheLove.

5 MUST WATCH GAY MOVIES

Are we currently celebrating the Golden Age of gay films? It’s possible. For the last few years, we have witnessed an abundance of award-worthy films advertising gay and LGBTI aspects. Acknowledged, major films representing outstanding lesbian and trans individuals have been wistfully deficient on the ground last 2016. We’ve cut down the list to our 5 most favorite LGBTI films.

Moonlight

Moonlight, directed and directed by Barry Jenkins, is among 2016’s best films, LGBT or not. This sensitive drama follows the life of Chiron, an introverted gay black man, between 2 stages of his early life, together with his trials with acceptance of self, bullying, and his mom’s addiction to crack cocaine. It is very rare for black ga men to get this type of screen representation- the type that exhibits them with nostalgic and ecstatic intricacy and attains rhapsodic feedbacks from the finest critics. It even made its way to the Academy awards, winning several awards including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay.

Handmaiden

The overwhelmingly impressive, grandiose epic about a hush-hush lesbian love affair, Handmaiden is the dramatic countermeasure to the movie Looking. The greatest work of a director from South Korea, Park Chan-wook, smoothly harmonizes romance, mystery, crime, erotica, horror, comedy, and even the slightest touch of cheesy melodrama. All of which with a few sprinkles of politics and a determined, extensive odd agenda to reboot.

King Cobra

The sensational story of Brent Corrigan’s fresh porn career— and the murder of a producer influential to his success— emphasizes this next best LGBT movie. King Cobra is written and directed by Justin Kelly, and mainly played by Garrett Clayton (twink poster boy). The movie has gained controversy after reports have been made that Corrigan declined to take part in the film, announcing it extended the truth on the murder of Bryan Kocis in 2007. Nevertheless, the film is an intriguing slice of pulp picture that is co-starred by James Franco and Christian Slater.

Other People

Written and directed by Chris Kelly from Saturday Night Live (SNL), Other People is a satirical comic drama representing the story of a pessimistic, young gay writer David (played by Jesse Plemons) who goes back home to take care of his dying, cancer-stricken mom (portrayed by an incredibly spirited Molly Shannon). Her mom dies over the course of a year in the movie, and it may seem like an odd assumption for a comedy. However, the film reminds viewers that comedy and tragedy just two sides of one coin.

Looking: The Movie

Looking was originally a smart, sensitive drama aired on HBO. But after the series got canceled after 2 seasons, it resulted in a muffled outcry. However, the story of the desperately bewildered man-child Patrick and his attractive, arduous friends, received an admiring take off last 2016, with this feature-length declaration.

The movie is not perfect. Hardly anything happens, and the constant murmuring makes it more difficult to understand. However, this is the film at its most extraordinarily realistic.

Pride in opposition to humiliation and social shame

Gay Pride, also known as the LGBT pride, is the supportive stand against injustice and brutality towards the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community to advocate their self-declaration, morality, equality rights, boost their visibility as a social body, grow a community, and observe sexual diversity and gender differences.
