Nobody convinces me that 2018 isn’t the best year for representation. So far, we’ve gotten;

  • Black Panther, a black superhero film
  • A Wrinkle In Time
  • Love Simon, a gay rom-com
  • Crazy Rich Asians, a rom-com with dominant Asian cast
  • A Quiet Place, a horror film with deaf representation
  • Hayley Kiyoko’s debut album “Expectations” a.k.a a gift from Lesbian Jesus
  • Janelle Monae’s “Make Me Feel”, “Django Jane” and “PYNK” (“Dirty Computer” whole album once it’s already fully released), celebrating pansexuality and black womanhood
  • Asian descent people winning, medalling at and making history at the Olympics (Yuzuru Hanyu, Nathan Chen, Mirai Nagasu, Chloe Kim, Shibs etc.)
  • Adam Rippon and Gus Kenworthy during the Olympics

So many that I can’t keep track of it. You guys can help me add more stuffs.

Anyways, he finally met his idol during Avengers : Infinity War press tour in Singapore. Here are some pictures.
