5 Black Boy Bands of This Century That Deserve Better
If you’re anything like me (or several million people) at some point in your life, you went through a boy band phase. And if you’re even more like me, you haven’t grown out of it, you’ve just replaced one boy band with the next. Over the years, I’ve seen boy bands come and go (and sometimes come again). From the more obscure ones like NLT and IM5 to the global superstars like One Direction and BTS, boy bands have been a phenomena for decades.
Rest Looks Different When You're Homeless
All my life, I've had a difficult relationship with rest. As a kid, I would stay up until I could see the sun peaking over the horizon because I had an intense fear of the dark. As a teenager, my fear of the dark went away, but it was replaced by severe insomnia linked to anxiety. Now as an adult, I've mostly overcome my night-related fears and have learned some tactics to alleviate my insomnia, but I still struggle to get a good night's sleep. Only now, it's not because my brain won't let me.
As a Closeted Bisexual, the Gay Jokes About Shawn Mendes Feel Personal
On November 17, Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello broke the internet when they announced their break up after over two years of dating. As suspected, many took the opportunity to unleash the monster Shawn has been running from his entire career: the speculations about his sexuality.
Fantage & Other MMORPGs: A Queer Awakening
Six months ago, during the height of Pride Month, I wrote about some of my favorite LGBTQIA+ creators where I naively referred to myself as a "cishet ally." Since then I've done a lot of self reflection and ultimately, a lot of healing from childhood trauma leading to me being able to admit, for the very first time in my 23 years of life, that I am not straight. To be honest, the signs were always there.
The Perfect Halloween Playlist For Poetry Lovers
As I approach my 23rd Halloween, I would be lying if I said that the holiday hasn't lost some of its novelty. Being past the socially acceptable age to go trick or treating and no longer in the era of Disney Channel's Monstober event, Halloween has become more of a responsibility in many ways than a fun day full of free candy. So what does an adult do to gain back some of that old Halloween spark? Look for ways to spice it up, of course.
The Magic of Stardust & Stormhold
Many fantasy stories have stolen my heart over the years and for different reasons. Harry Potter is full of amazing places, Percy Jackson and the Olympians turns people's flaws into their strengths, and The Chronicles of Narnia is the perfect form of escapism. But as much as I love Hogwarts, Camp Half Blood, and Narnia there is one magical land that seems to encompass the best of all worlds. And that is the kingdom of Stormhold.
7 Most Inappropriate Sibling Relationships in TV and Movies
Television and movies have given the world some great character relationships over the years, but like the double edged sword it is, they've also given us some not so great character relationships. And today I want to focus on some of the not so great (and just inappropriate) on screen sibling relationships. Buckle up, because for every T'Challa and Shuri, there seems to be multiple sibling relationships that are hellbent on triggering people's fight or flight reflexes.
