Schutz für Boyband-Fans - Safe Spaces for Boyband fans
by Yasmin Polat

Die Mitglieder von “Rainbow Direction” sind ein Zusammenschluss von LGBTI-One-Direction Fans. Sie setzen sich mit mittlerweile mehr als 20.000 Mitgliedern vor allem für mehr Sichtbarkeit von queer, lesbisch und transgender Fans der Boygroup One Direction ein. Gründungsmitglied Li Roock ist es wichtig, die Heteronormativität in der Pop-Kultur zu durchbrechen. “Boyband-Fans sollen vor allem weiblich und hetero sein”, sagt sie. “Das ist jedoch natürlich nicht nur der Fall. Darauf wollen wir aufmerksam machen und denjenigen Schutz bieten.”

Angst wegen gestern?

“München ist schon ein bisschen im Hinterkopf aber wir wussten schon dass wir laufen als Orlando war. Wir lassen uns unsere Freiheit aber nicht nehmen”, sagt die 28-Jährige.

The members of Rainbow Direction are a community of LGBTI One Direction fans. With more than 20.000 members they are promoting more visibility especially for queer, lesbian and transgender fans of the boygroup One Direction. Founding member Li Roock emphasizes that it is important to break down the heteronormativity in pop culture. “Boyband fans are supposed to be female and heterosexual” they say. “Though that isn’t completely the case. We want to bring attention to that and offer support to them [LGBTI Fans].”

Fear because of what happened yesterday [in Munich]?

“Of course Munich is on our mind but we already knew we were going to walk when Orlando happened. We won’t let anyone take our freedom” say the 28 year old.

Harry on set Dunkirk 😍😍

anonymous asked:

Tfln where Harry's really late for a date/stood the missus up and she is upset but trying not to show it?

Harry. Missus.

Harry, where are you?

I’m at home, why?

Do you need me to come and get you from somewhere?

Oh.

I thought you were busy and that’s why you were late.

Don’t worry.

Late for what?

No, no.

It’s okay.

Don’t worry.

Gorgeous, what am I late for?

We had a date scheduled for tonight at the restaurant by your house.

But, don’t worry.

I know you’ve been really busy with the fifth album.

Shit.

Was that tonight?

It was, yeah.

But, it’s okay.

No, it’s not okay.

I stood you up.

I’m so sorry.

Harry, it’s okay.

It’s not okay.

You keep repeating the word ‘okay’ and I know when you do that, it’s not fine or okay.

Harry, I promise.

You’ve been so busy with everything.

No.

You’re my girlfriend.

We’ve been together for 3 - almost 4 - years.

I shouldn’t be standing you up.

Harry, please.

Yes, I’m pissed off that this happened but it’s understandable because you’re so busy right now with setting up the fifth album.

I can get dressed quickly and run down to the restaurant.

Don’t bother. 

I’m in a uber on my way home.

An uber?

Yes.

A taxi-like something that will drop me off home.

Gorgeous.

No, Harry.

I’ll see you Saturday.

What about tomorrow?

I thought we were having a date so I could treat you to the new film you’ve been wanting to watch.

I think I’m going to pass.

I’ll just see you on Saturday when we go for Gemma’s birthday.

Oh.

Okay.

..

.

I am sorry, Gorgeous.

I know you are.

I’ll see you on Saturday. x
