Adele, a champion for the cause (1)

May, 2016

Two days before her 28th birthday, Adele unknowingly helped surprise one pair of fans with the memory of a lifetime.

In the midst of her concert Tuesday night in Denmark, the songstress paused her performance to give a gay couple the spotlight. After she pulled Swedish fans André Söderberg and Simon Carlsson up on stage, one of the men took advantage of the unique opportunity and got down on one knee to propose to his boyfriend, who was visibly shocked and excited about the proposal. Adele held the mic to his mouth so that everyone could hear the signature question, “Will you marry me?” while his beau gleefully responded, “Yes!”

Clad in a sparkling black gown, the Grammy winner began jumping up and down on stage and hugged the pair as they relished in the occasion. However, setting the scene for their proposal was not the only gift Adele was giving Tuesday night. She also made them an offer super fans would find hard to turn down.

“Should I be your surrogate if you have children? I’d love to have a baby with someone Swedish,” she reportedly asked them.

Animal Homosexuality Documentary

Published on 8 Jan 2016

Authors : Bertrand Loyer, Jessica Menendez, Stéphane Alexandresco

According to recent scientific research, more than 450 different kinds of animals engage in homosexual activity. St Thomas Productions has taken this research, and combined it with never-before- seen film footage, to produce this compelling and groundbreaking documentary. Animal Homosexuality explores the various ways homosexuality is expressed in the animal kingdom through courtships, affection, sex, pair-bonding and parenting. A covert revolution has been taking place in nature, and has gone unnoticed until now. With the help of scientific research, international stock footage and location shoots all over the world, Saint Thomas re-examines and revises the fundamental paradigms of nature.

All Love Is Equal by Braden Summers

“ALL LOVE IS EQUAL is a Kickstarter-funded project that depicts same-sex couples in various countries. I traveled the world for 6 weeks creating the work in the UK, France, India, Lebanon, Brazil and the U.S.

When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not. I would like to use this work as a platform to discuss why that is and how to change it.

A large driving force behind creating this series was actually less about affecting the gay community directly, and more about giving the general population a way to relate to gay imagery which is devoid of sex, victimization, or banality – themes that might usually prevent some folks from connecting. The photographs are not documentations, they are dreamy illustrations of what open expressions of love in different cultures *could* look like in a future, more accepting time.”
