I wanted to make a personal post for this year’s LGBT Blogathon, so I tried to think about the first time I had ever seen a prominent LGBT character. Growing up in Peru, I don’t think it was ever an issue that crossed my mind- representation, I mean. It was sort of there, hovering in my subconscious, and if I had seen LGBT related content or entertainers, it was something that wasn’t broadly discussed. Now that I think back on it, it was like the Liberace example. He was flamboyant, but people that weren’t “in the know” didn’t know or wanted to accept that Liberace was gay.

You know, I can’t really remember him from Au Revoir Taipei, but after seeing Gf*Bf and having just checked out Eternal Summer, I have a mad mad crush on him. Funny thing is… I had a hard time searching for a goooooood photo to use, but find that he looks good on film.
Having said that- the 2013 LGBT Blogathon starts on Monday over at YAM Magazine!
Don’t miss it!
What started like a simple post, ended up taking a lot of hours ofÂ researchÂ and boy band video-watching. I may or not regret it.
There were boy bands I hadn’t even heard of… and some that I had to dust off my VHS tapes to get their names. Ha!
So sue me! I have a Power Rangers tag on my blog.
I wanted to do a quick ranking for the Time Machine Blogathon, so I thought it was fair to rank only the seasons that I followed, which ended after the destruction of Zordon  back when Power Rangers in Space was done. Despite my watching of seldom episodes of Lost Galaxy, and even more random episodes ofÂ LightspeedÂ Rescue… maybe Time Force (can’t be 99% sure if I’ve watched that one), and OBVIOUSLY~ Dino Thunder (because Tommy was in it, xD), I feel the proper thing to do is to rank just those first few couple seasons while highlighting my favorite moments, my least favorite ones and stuff.
First things first~
Though not strictly a season on Power Rangers, I gotta give them a special mention as my least favorite rangers of the ones I’m ranking because I just hated that they had to come in because the others were turned into little kids. I don’t know why I didn’t like the little kids — being a little kid myself — but looking back on it, it feels like a cheap cop-out to have more rangers thrown into the Power Ranger universe.
The only highlight with their inclusion was that the leader was a girl. I haven’t seen that in others (certainly not from the ones I followed), but feel free to correct me.
Food opens more doors and makes more friends than any other form of diplomacy. It allows us to explore each other’s differences and find common ground while celebrating each other’s cultures, changing the way we understand our planet one meal at a time.

It begins on Monday 3rd! So TOMORROW!
