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 of research 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!
