Love Songs for the LBGTQ Community

We all know that there are a million trillion love songs for the hetero couple, girl loves boy, boy loves girl, no one is getting any love hetero-ness. What isn't as big, especially on main stream radio, are love songs about pinning, kissing, and breaking hearts of the same gender!
Which I think is completely unfair.
So here is a collection of songs for the closeted, or out, LBGTQ community!

Love, Robot - "Fire Escape"

Alexa (lead singer) wrote this song for current girl friend Lynn who is the lead singer in PVRIS! And whats even more amazing then her beautiful voice is that there is a response song! (below)

PVRIS - "Eyelids"

Lynns response to "fire escape" and Alexa is the star of the music video! How cute is that? I love them and their love.

Panic! at the Disco: Girls/Girls/Boys

(Her Electric Fur Cover)

Pretty clear what this is about when the chorus says, "girls love girls and boys/ love is not a choice". After reading some of the youtube comments apparently some listeners have taken to playing this around their house to hint to their parents about their sexuality!

Vance Joy - 'I Know Places' [Taylor Swift Cover]

I know this one might seem like it doesn't belong because it's a Taylor Swift song but once you listen to the lyrics it is totally the perfect representation of a closeted/secret gay relationship! Also I just really love Vance Joy's covers.

Lauren Aquilina - Sinners

This song seriously gives me goose bumps! It brings in many references to the Catholic church, one of the biggest enemies of "one love". Quotes like "And judgement taught us that our hearts were wrong" and "the forbidden fruit tastes so sweet" make it clear that they know the church thinks they are sinners but they don't care!
goose bump line- The world may disapprove
But my world is only you
And if we're sinners then it feels like heaven to me

PVRIS - Holy

Lynn (lead singer and girlfriend of our first video) said in an interview that this song is about one of her friends Mom who contradicted herself so many times due to her strict religious beliefs. Its nice to have music that supports love for everyone by criticizing the biggest critic of gay rights/love.

Hayley Kiyoko - Girls Like Girls

This video blew up on youtube because it is one of the few out there that makes a clear distinction that the love story is between two girls! And coupled with an amazing song the even more amazing video shows girls trying to ignore their feelings but love winning out!

I love all of these! I'd also add the cover Angel Haze did of Same Love. They talk about their experiences being queer and how things got better for them and what acceptance really means. It's beautiful

What Do The Protests in Seoul Look Like Now?
This past Friday the Korean Constitutional Court (think of it as the US Supreme Court) ruled unanimously that Park Geun Hye should be officially impeached. Since most of the country wanted this (at her lowest I think she has a 10% approval rating) there were massive celebrations in the streets. There were musicians, free food stalls, and fireworks. Now of course there are plenty of (mostly elderly) people rioting and claiming that this is the end of democracy (when really its just an example of democracy working...) but they are in contained areas surrounded by police. As far as I know 2 people died and many more are injured but its been due to violence by the pro-Park side (for example, the rioters were trying to flip over a police bus and knocked over a speaker which fell and killed an elderly man who was part of the riot...) I walked through the celebration area the day after the announcement if you'd like to take a look and hear the sounds. Skip to 4:20 unless you want to see my friends new cafe opening party haha :) If you could all do me a really big favor: Please give this video a thumbs up on YouTube here. People have been leaving incredibly nasty comments targeting myself and my family (I have deleted and blocked most of them) and this video now has some of the most down-votes I've ever had on a video :/ That would really mean a lot! Thank you ㅠㅠ Korea now has to vote for a new president so that will be starting as we speak :)

Buzzfeed: What Darker Skinned People Will Never Tell You...
Que tal peeps! WARNING! This video may be sensitive to some ppl. This video to me was very interesting. I live how they spoke about being a darker skin tone in all races not just African American. Honestly, every where some one deals with the societal issues of having darker skin. I know in my family we are mixed in come in all shades, so within the family I never seen colorism. But outside I was often questioned how could mi abulea be mi abulea since she is Mexican and I have a deeper complexion (even though she is a darker Mexican woman). Or why my cousins and I look a like facial wise but are different shades of brown or why I had long wavy hair with deep brown skin and my cousin had coil like short hair but she was toffee colored. Outside of our home my family and I felt with this issues. I remember someone thought I was Eastern Indian when I was in college. They could not understand why I had long hair and how I got into a private college. They said Indian kids were smart so I must be Indian not African-American. When I told them I identified as a Black Latina then that really confused them. But even people who are from Latino community or Asian community deal with these light skin vs dark skin issues. May ppl don't know this. But you see skin whiting creams advertised in Africa, Asian, and now it's trending in America! Kpop I love but they do uphold light skin and even still in American culture. Personally, as the new generation coming up we need to learn from the mistakes of the older generation. Colorism is one thing we need to end. A person's character should not be based upon the tone of their skin, but the actual person. I'm tagging all my peeps cuz I think yall can handle this video. If not your cup of tea sorry in advance.

The Real Reason for Supernatural Concepts
Remember back in 2013 when Kpop went into full supernatural concept mode? From EXO's Wolf, VIXX's On & On, Boyfriend's Bounce, etc, etc... there were vampires, aliens, werewolves galore. Nowadays in 2016, though, we're seeing a rise to realism. BTS dealing with drugs (I Need U) or Monsta X dealing with totalitarianism (All In) But, why? "Zombies are the perfect metaphor." (source) Basically, using the supernatural has always been a way of talking about real life issues, without actually bringing them up. For example, in Harry Potter House Elves would represent slaves, the discrimination and fear of werewolves represented how ridiculous racism is, etc. Fiction allows us to talk about important issues in a sly way. For example, VIXX's Hyde portrayed them as vampire-like, living in a spooky house and dark forest, growing black wings and almost being taken over by a monster. At its core, this is a song about dangerous relationships. A partner who is emotionally unstable, but charming. Hurting you but begging to have you back. This can be a metaphor for abusive relationships of all kinds. They repeat over and over that "that man isn't me, there is a crazy 'other me' inside of me." Just as abusers usually do after a moment of violent anger. Hiding this message behind the mask of "monsters" and "dark angels" makes it easier to consume and talk about. But take away the supernatural and its a serious issue they bring up. Another great example is Monster by Big Bang. They dress up as literal monsters, but talk about how just because they are different and not fitting into the society's mold they aren't bad people. It's an anthem for misfits, and a message to society to stop being so cruel. So why are we shedding the costumes now? Why are things suddenly more...real? We're done hiding. The problems can no longer stay hidden, we need to talk about them. No more using vampires and ghosts as metaphors, the general public is more comfortable discussing issues like depression, drugs, mental health, discrimination, etc. The move to realism means that we're being realistic about the problems - we're addressing them head on. That being said, there is nothing wrong with supernatural concepts being used to talk about issues! Often people can't understand something in its original form. For example, maybe someone doesn't see the need for LGBTQ+ rights. Give them a love story with a couple that is forced apart, never to be together (perhaps a vampire and a human??) because society says its unnatural. If while reading the story or watching the movie, that person feels upset about this poor couple torn apart by society, maybe they will see the correlation between their belief that gay marriage is wrong. Basically, I think that the constant changing of concept trends is fascinating and it means much more than we think!
