As the stick gets smaller and smaller, they get closer and closer — and eventually a fellow K-pop idol pulls them into a kiss
In South Korea‘s glitzy, highly manufactured music industry, these kinds of scenes are not uncommon. As long as it’s only for show, that is.
Homophobia is still rife in South Korea, where very few mainstream music stars have come out as gay. The country has no comprehensive anti-discrimination laws to protect LGBTQ South Koreans, and compared to nearby democracies like Japan and Taiwan,the country is less accepting of same-sex couples.
An openly gay star
South Korea‘s record labels are happy to let fans fantasize about idols being gay. But they don’t want gay idols be open about their sexuality.
That was something 23-year-old star Holland found out firsthand.
Holland — whose real name is Go Tae-seob — went through rigorous training with one of the labels . But when it came time to debut, the label was against him debuting as a gay idol.»They said it would be bad for my image,« Holland told CNN. To Holland, that was a deal-breaker. He had been badly bullied in middle school, and it was important to him to be open about his sexuality. So he quit the label and debuted as an independent artist.»I wanted to prove that I am worthy of love, and that I’m worthy of achieving and being accomplished,« he said. »I felt that was the only way I could love myself.«K-pop stars are often subject to strict rules — many are not allowed to date publicly, as labels worry that any relationships make stars lose their mystique among fans. For the major labels, public same-sex relationships appear to be out of the question.
Against that backdrop, Holland was a major break with tradition.
When he debuted in 2018, he attracted a lot of positive attention overseas. But back home in South Korea, the reaction was muted — or even negative.
Nevertheless, Holland remained determined to make a statement. While filming the music video for his first single »Neverland,« the director told him that there would be a 19+ rating in South Korea if the clip showed any same-sex affection.

Porn addiction often can start in adolescence but most parents don’t realize until the problem becomes bigger
One of the reasons porn is difficult to talk about is because the topic makes it easy to be judgmental of both ourselves and of each other. Our generation’s relationship with sex from the outset was one tied to embarrassment and secrecy. This fault in dialogue, in which exploring our sexual identities is written off as wrong, feeds into the lack of conversation surrounding porn addiction and further complicates people’s relationships with their own sexualities.
Is MILF Based on a True Story?
No, Netflix’s ‘MILF’ is not based on a true story. However, it does attempt to upend the stigma surrounding older women dating much younger men. In mainstream cinema, the depiction of intergenerational romantic relationships between older men and young women is often normalized. Take, for instance, Sam Mendes’ Oscar-winning ‘American Beauty.’ On the flip side, because of a lack of films portraying it, similar relationships between older women and younger men are still considered taboo by many. Although gender stereotypes also play a role here, movies often use the term cougar in a derogatory context. With ‘MILF’, Fench actress and comedian, Axelle Laffont, intends to normalize the use of terms like Cougar or MILF and defy all the stereotypes surrounding heterosexual relationships.
The movie archives this by portraying the lives of three distinct middle-aged women. Among them, Elise is the boldest and enjoys being single even in her 40s.

Now that we’ve experienced our first big snowfall of the year, it officially looks and feels like winter in Indianapolis. There are still plenty of opportunities to explore Indy’s arts scene while staying warm and toasty, such as catching a play at a local theater. I recently had the opportunity to catch »Adults« at Theater at The Fort, and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for a reason to step outside, scrape the snow off their car and overcome any winter-induced cabin fever.
Although popular movies, books, television series and theatrical performances rarely shy away from telling taboo love stories, few do so with as much ingenuity as »Adults.« »Adults,« written by Indianapolis playwright Jeremy Grimmer and produced by Fat Turtle Theater Company, tells the story of EJ, a perceptive and compassionate single man with a passion for cooking and gaming, and Sarah, a spirited married women who starts out somewhat guarded but learns to open up with the help of her new lover and his rowdy group of friends.

So far, so anti-feminist, but there’s a fascinating psychological reason why we all want Gaga, 32, to bag Hollywood‘s most eligible man…
Bradley Cooper had ovaries twitching the minute he cradled that baby in The Hangover.
Although Irina has never publicly spoken about her relationship with Bradley, the couple are often spotted out and about in New York with their daughter Lea.

There isn’t any emotional baggage and if I want to go out with the girls tonight I can.»I don’t negotiate with someone else over what I do in my spare time, or argue over who did the washing-up.
«I’ve never been a relationship person. I had a relationship when I was 16 for about a year, so I do know what it’s like to be in a couple, but at my age now, that life just isn’t for me. When I was 19 I did a season in Magaluf where I worked as a shot girl and I loved it».
