“ENOUGH OF THE GAY STUFF”

Sent to my website email this morning - Subject: Enough Message: Enough of the gay stuff on Bright Sessions. Please we are begging you. Sent on: June 2, 2017.

So here we are, two days into PRIDE month. How’s everybody doing?

I’m going to start off by leaning into the mic and saying with full-throat clarity: “Fuck you…you fucking fuck”.

I am a gay man…and before that, I was a gay kid…a scared and angry kid who had so much internal homophobia brewing inside of him that he thought he might explode because nothing in the world was convincing him, or trying to convince him for that matter, that it was normal and okay to be who he really was. And I can tell you, when I was that scared kid, shows like The Bright Session were almost non-existent; and what a shame.

I would have cried from happiness if The Bright Sessions existed when I was a boy. Shows like The Fosters, Glee, Eye Witness, Riverdale, Shadowhunters…shows where I could see myself on the screen in a way all of my heterosexual friends could without question since birth. 

Today I turn on the radio…and 99.999% of the music is, narratively, written/produced with a straight audience in mind…and in some cases/genres it’s used to target and ridicule me and my sexuality.

I live in a world where gay men are being thrown off of rooftops and “exorcized” in Chechnya because they are seen as aberrations; less than…underserving of love and existence. I live in a world where in my own country, a venomous discriminatory fear-based movement validated by the election of their figurehead sent a resounding message that my rights are actually up for debate.

In a world where there is so little positive reflected back at me…so little out there saying that my truth and the stories that express my life and experiences on this earth are valid…in a world where I feel like every day and every breath is a stand to qualify my existence…In that world, I get a message that tells me “enough of the gay stuff”. 

So…to the person who sent this message, I feel sorry for you; I genuinely do…I truly, genuinely and absolutely do. How terrible your life must be, and how delicate your self-image must be to reach out and say something like that. At first look, the message is mean and evil…but then the shaky-ground of masculine fragility reveals itself, as it always does, and I pity you. 

This is Pride Month…It’s meant to celebrate the LGBT+ community and our allies by opening up to share the beauty and diversity of our lives with everyone. I am proud of who I am…and it took a damn long time to get here.

I can’t really speak for Lauren, our creator/show-runner, or the rest of the cast, but…we have a gay character, a bi character, a lesbian character and a “no labels at this time” character confirmed as canon in The Bright Sessions…and I’m here to tell you we will never “enough with the gay stuff”. We are here to celebrate the people and stories that matter to us…Caleb, Adam, Mark and Rose are my friends; these are the people I have in my life and I think you’d be lucky to know. So yeah, no…not “enough of the gay stuff”.

7x11 Play Time Thoughts (REWATCH)

I’m rewatching Playtime to uncover some clues that I may have missed and something Hanna said stuck out to me. When the girls are talking about Jenna and Noel having a connection to Charlotte and Archer, Hanna says that connected doesn’t equals a motive. So, what If we are finally getting a non-family related twist. What if this quote means that the person isn’t actually avenging Charlotte or is connected to her in anyway? Hanna has a point, if AD was someone who has connections to Charlotte it could be any of the liars. Could even be Ali

- I know Hanna got kidnapped by AD but she’s way more salty than usual. And i don’t know wether to rule this out or not. But in the intro for the episode, Hanna does the ‘Shh’ Does this mean anything at all? Aria looks really guilty but then side eyes Spencer??? And Alison sides eyes Hanna?? So, I don’t know what to make of this.

- Is that Mary Drakes house Spencer is at when she’s looking through the letter box? There’s a lot of mail there that looks as if it has been there for weeks. So, how long has it been since Spencer got released and Mary vanished? Where is Mary? Why is there a bell? I’m so confused.

- Ezra returns just as Aria tries to leave. That’s really suspicious to me. I want Aria to tell Ezra that she saw him on TV with Nicole.

- Caleb and Hanna talking about Jenna, and Hanna thinking that Jenna is AD and then Caleb is all ‘let me worry about Jenna’ and it cuts to Paige. Is this scene being shown after to foreshadow that maybe Jenna isn’t the one they need to worry about.. Paige is. Why would they bring back Paige just to spark a fire in Alison? To show us that Ali is the same person

- How do we know for sure that Alison is actually pregnant? We haven’t seen a test result, we weren’t shown her doctors appointment. Are we seriously expected to take her word for it? I’ve never trusted Alison.


- “Of all the things that happen in this time, those two get taken out by a deer.” *Sips tea* I’m still speculating Ezra, I mean he was out of town because of Nicole, Yes, but whose to say he didn’t cause this accident? Or for someone else to cause it. The Bethany twin theory works here too as Bethany would probably want Toby out of the way. We were never shown the accident. We never saw a deer CAUSE the accident

- Why are they making a point of sending Aria the text and having her make an entrance into Spencer’s barn? Is this relevant? They could have just cut to a scene of the girls in Spencer’s barn or had one of the others walk in? Why Aria specifically.


- Secret Passageway??? To where? Is this meant to represent how Mona snuck out of Radley??? Also, Who do we know that would have the ability and technology to create the game board? Caleb and Lucas. They made a point of telling us that Lucas designs apps and we have seen Caleb’s technical skills. Combining those two characters would make this game board. How does it motion sense whose playing?


- So the game is called 'Liars Lament’ and Lament stands for grief or sorrow. This could refer to avenging of Charlotte’s death OR making the liars take on tasks that reference something that connects to them emotionally and then they are rewarded for it. So Spencer’s task was to visit Toby. Why would it be to visit Toby? Perhaps Spencer feels guilty for the accident with Yvonne in a comma when she kissed Toby (Even though, it seems like her possibly twin kissed Toby) and she was rewarded with a letter from Mary dated back in the Radley days.


- @badassmona pointed out where each outfit the figurines are wearing are from. So, I took a little look at the episodes and I found some interesting things;


Spencer - 5x24 - This is the episode where Hanna and Alison are both in jail and it’s the day of Alison’s trial. Alison gets sentenced to being guilty for murder in the first degree. At the end of this episode, Charlotte is playing with a toy bus that resembles one of those prisoner truck things.. and she takes out a brunette figurine. Did this represent Mona? Or Spencer? Is this supposed to make us suspect Spencer?

Hanna - Hanna is dressed the most elaborate and her outfit wasn’t exactly matching to an outfit she’s worn on the show so I don’t really know how to evaluate it. Whoever, this person is sees Hanna as a fashion forward individual

Aria - 1x11; So Hanna is in hospital and Ezra shows Aria the 'I see you’ message on the back of his car. The episode before, Aria has an A Like moment where she slowly pulls down her hood. It seemed like a mini reveal.

Ali - Alison is obviously wearing her yellow top. The iconic yellow top that she was buried alive in, the final outfit she was known to be in. We all somewhat know what happened that night through Charlotte. However that is one person’s experience.

Emily - Emily is wearing her sharks swim team attire and this is the episode where she discuses swimming abilities and skills with Sydney. This is also the episode, Alison texts Emily and sings it A by accident then changes it. Why would Alison subconsciously type A at the end? This episode had a lot to do with Paige..


Now that I’ve analysed the episodes, I think I know the possible route for the game. Each liar will have to perform a task that correlates with someone close to them / failure to do so could result in that person being harmed. For example, 1x11 had details of Aria being with Ezra and Noel finding out about it, Her task could be Ezra related, Her reward possibly Nicole related, and if she fails, Ezra could find out about something idk. Emily’s episode had a lot of Paige, What if she’s forced to do something that involves choosing Alison or Paige? What if it results in Alison’s death? Hanna is dressing Katherine Daly for a career boost and her game piece features fashion-elements.. AD could ruin that so badly. Spencer’s was related to Toby because of her love for him. I don’t have much more to say I’m tired lmao

- “So continue with Plan A.” When Hanna and Aria are talking about Nicole and Hanna tells Aria to CONTINUE WITH PLAN A. Is this foreshadowing Aria?

- Alison is so salty over Paige. Why is she so intimidated? Alison was the one that bullied Paige


- Why is nobody asking Who shot Spencer? The only people present were Mary and Jenna. So does that mean? Mary shot Spencer? But why?


- I really don’t want Katherine Daly to be Bethany. I just don’t like it.

- THE VERONICA SPENCER SCENE BROKE MY HEART. VERONICA LOVED HER AND PROTECTED HER LIKE SHE WAS HER OWN.

- PETER HASTINGS IS A FUCK BOY


- SUPPORTIVE CALEB SMILING AT HANNA AS SHE DOES WHAT SHE LOVES IS MY AESTHETIC

- Why does Alison have to attack Paige? Paige is literally doing her job and Alison just makes things shitty? Why. Why is she forever victimising herself and Why is she being the old Alison. Is this been shown to let us know that Ali hasn’t changed?

- Maybe not the rest of the world. But this is ROSEWOOD. LITERALLY LMAO

- Why is Spencer so easily whipping off her cast???

- Okay so the letter from Mary says that Spencer was made through hate and so that Jesica and Peter are aware of a mistake they made on s daily basis? I know that Mary pretended to be Jesica so with Spencer living next door to her, She’d be able regret the affair that she also had with Peter. Also, How did AD get this letter? Must be working with Mary

- Paige is right about Alison. Emily will make excuses and it is demeaning. Alison always victimises herself.

- and again Hanna is very defensive and salty. Questioning wether the letter is real.

- PLEASE LET THAT CUP, THE TEA AND THE SCRUBS BE A REFERENCE TO WREN. ALSO, Jenna at the end, Does her Braille spell out End game or The actual identity of the person and their reason? Why would she just smile and say End game? I’m confused

So since Lovely Little Losers has wrapped, Caleb has slowly been turning into Costa McClure. To top it all off, he’s directing a version of Doctor Faustus. Avant-garde. With 5 actors. And a dance sequence, an escape sequence, an unrehearsed sword fight, maybe some levitation, and fake blood, which does not come out, at ALL. Art imitates life imitates art!

Because Doctor Faustus isn’t hard enough to stage successfully, a different actor will be taking on the role of Faustus every night, having never rehearsed with the rest of the cast. Any of you in Auckland between the 30th May and the 3rd of June should get along to the Basement Theatre to check it out!

I wish there was like a bonus mini episode where we could watch the girls take on their interpretation of the roles they initially auditioned for like a “What If/AU” episode. Can you imagine Sasha being Hanna, Shay being Spencer, Keegan being Wren, Brant as Ezra while the rest of the cast switches up with Troian as Emily, Lucy as Alison, Hanna as Mona, Janel as Aria, Ian as Caleb, Tyler as Toby??????

anonymous asked:

What are the main cast ethnicity?

If I listed the ethnicity of every character it’d take forever, so here’s the main cast grid with it written on them. I just put what they would say they are if you asked them. 

I’m really careful with doing anything regarding race/ethnicity because I don’t want to fuck up and do something wrong but this is as plain as I can make it?

They live in a small, racist town in mid America so this ain’t great for people like Liam. The rest of the grid has plenty more from around the world that haven’t been listed here including Egyptian (Caleb’s dad) and Cuban (Trip the middle school teacher) so… living as a POC in Deersmouth can be difficult.

Please like or reblog if you want Daniel to return as Kol to show your support

The originals would be foolish not to bring Daniel back as Kol. Look at a few of those reviews and fan reactions:

Entertainment weekly - But before you get insanely mad at the show for killing off Kol—oh, was that just me?—Bekah informs him that, as a witch, they will consecrate his body and he will join their ancestors, which means that his spirit can be brought back. Rebekah then vows that she will not leave her body until she can find a way to bring him back home. And with one last moment in which Kol says he’s not scared, he dies. My only question: But will he come back with the same accent in the same body?! Because really, Daniel Sharman has been excellent with a capital “E.”

TV.com - Daniel Sharman, guys. I mean, that death scene alone. Full of gurgled pathos and giggled regret, it was a wonderfully dynamic and surprising tragedy, just as the character deserved. I can’t even imagine what The Originals (or Kol) will be like without Daniel Sharman. Could the characters maybe figure out a way to resurrect Kol in a facsimile of Kaleb’s body? Is that possible?

TV source magazin - I hate that this happened, but the scenes were so moving and all of the actors involved brought their A-games. Thank you, Daniel Sharman for sharing your version of Kol with us (let’s resume crying now).

Tv overmind - Sadly, though, we have lost one sibling already. Kol’s hex was killing him, and Rebekah or Davina couldn’t do anything to help. I know with vampire magic that when a vampire dies, any compulsion they’ve done is undone. I was hopeful that was applicable to witches, too, since Finn technically died in the house explosion, thanks to Elijah. (Naturally, he couldn’t stay dead for long because where would be the fun in that.) I’m so heartbroken over Kol’s death though. Kol/Kaleb’s chemistry with Davina was so adorable. Yeah, Rebekah swore she would consecrate his remains and not stop trying to bring him back since he died a witch, but would he be in the same body? I cannot imagine recasting this character a third time after striking gold this time around. Quit playing games with our hearts and bring Sharman back ASAP!

Sound on sight - This begs the question: what, exactly, is the point of Kol’s apparent death? The scene is emotional, for sure, and Daniel Sharman is absolutely incredible as he nails all of Kol’s regret and despair and desperation about dying, but, by the end, the whole thing feels like a cheap ploy to wrench some emotion out of the audience. Quite honestly, Kol’s death feels very hollow and unnecessary.

Den of geek - But as one Mikaelson enters, another departs. Kol has succumbed to Finn’s hex after Davina and Rebekah failed to save him with their respective magical knowledge, and so we’ve sadly said goodbye to Daniel Sharman’s wonderful presence on the show. It’s highly unlikely that this will be the last we see of Kol the character, even in the current season, but his current face is no more, and that’s a shame.

Fan reactions - My first reaction - NOOOOOO! I loved the idea of all the family members being around. And while I liked the first Kol, Daniel Sharman (already a fan from Teen Wolf) really made this role his own in a very short time. The original Kol was all manipulation and mischief and evil, while Daniel brought a vulnerability mixed in with the original qualities. And his scenes with Klaus were excellent. So why, after quite successfully recasting a role would they kill him off?? They found gold in this actor, this combo of actors, and it seems a waste. Keep the original actor for flashbacks but Daniel IS Kol now and deserves to be a regular cast member

Daniel Sherman’s accent is everything and I need to hear it on a weekly basis.

I’m so happy that they kept Yusuf Gatewood, now I really want them to keep Daniel Sharman.

Daniel Sharman IS Kol now to me. Both He and Yusuf Gatewood have made the second season must see in a way the first never was.

Caleb got killed.Just when daniel was making the character more believable and likable.Great job on this one!

Honestly the DS version of Kol is brilliant, and meshed with the rest of the family. He needs to come back. I don’t understand why they kill off quality characters in the TO/TVD universe, especially considering the amount of terrible characters we have had to suffer.

I was really disappointed about Kol. I loved Daniel Sharman and I hope they find some way to bring him back.

I was really disappointed about Kol. I loved Daniel Sharman and I hope they find some way to bring him back.

Daniel Sherman did a great job as Kaleb/Kol and I hope they bring him back :( I will miss that accent of his. He also had great chemistry with Davina

I thought for sure there would be a last minute save of some kind. I just kept hoping for it to the point the actual death didn’t register for a minute. I loved Daniel Sharman as Kol. I was just happy to see him on my tv screen after teenwolf and then this??? Arghhhhhh!!!!😢

I think Daniel Sharman did a great job has Kol and will be badly missed. I think it was a terrible mistake to write him off the show and in such a devastating manner.

The more time passes the more upset I am about them killing off Kol 1) He was becoming a really good well rounded character, 1000 years of knowledge in a human body, very scared of death and having died knowing what that means. 2) As an actor Daniel Sharman really impressed me, didn’t realise how good he would be, hes up there with the other actors I admire, Daniel Gillies and Jensen Ackles, both made me fall in love with their characters with such ease I didnt see it happening, and when I watch them on other shows I dont think about other characters they have played, they are truely the characters I am watching. Which sadly isn’t the case for all actors a lot don’t have that impact on me. 3)Kol had so much more potential, but not being played by Daniel Sharman would be a massive risk as he made him so human and so likeable, but hard to trust at the same time, keeping Daniel S and having Nate for flash backs is the best of both worlds 4) I think Kol became my fav this season, and I feel pretty numb about the show without him, that will change once it starts again, but I always looked forward to the chaos he caused. While Finn is just evil and cant see how he can survive the season, Kol would have been a truly wonderful addition to team witch, with his knowledge and skills he could have supported them.

I really hope the writers read these comments and have Daniel and Kol back next season

Getting rid of Kol is a big mistake. I liked the actor that played him. I hope they bring him back in this body. Plus Davina finally had some one.

Kol seemed to be doing pretty well until Freya brought Finn back, thats when his nose started bleeding. And then he died right as Freya finished bringing Finn back to life, so I’m thinking Film’s hex is reliant on him being alive. Maybe if they kill him Kol can come back? I really just dont want Daniel Sharman to leave :(

Khol was brilliant with Daniel Sharman at the helm, he needs to come back, I don’t care how.

Kol’s death was devastating, and if they don’t bring back Daniel asap I’ll never forgive them

Also SO SO SAD about Daniel Sharman being gone!! He was SO good as Kol!

Daniel Sharman needs to return ASAP no idea why the writers wrote him off, hes so talented and made me fall for Kol, which I never expected, more as I cant stand him in flash backs and adored him. If they cant think of a way to bring him back in his body im pretty sure there are a lot of fans who could. How about still being trapped in that body when brought back, he has to be a regular season 3, when you have characters with plot armor and always survive when they shouldnt, Josh, Jackson, Hayley, then kill a character who has layers, and is the name of the show is crazy

Dunno what is more upsetting: losing Kol or losing Daniel Sharman :( I hope he comes back tho.

Not Kol, not again! Bring him back please! And not another actor, Daniel Sharman was excellent as Kol. We want him back!

They did great casting Daniel Sharman as Kol, I actually like him better than the original Kol who I also liked.

Daniel Sharman did an amazing job. He’s such a talented actor, I cried like a baby when Kol died. I hope he’s going to back somehow.

Kol’s speech to Davina, “There is someone else under these stars, with a girl, thinks he’s got all the time in the world, and he’s right, and I hate him.” was one of the most beautiful pieces of writing on the show so far. Daniel Sharman should be this character from now on, because, he has made him sympathetic, Nathaniel Buzolic never really did that. Back in the day, when Kol tried to kill Matt, you WANTED to see Damon kick his ass! Now, you actually like Kol! I still have to replay his dialog five times to understand what he is saying through his accent, but it is worth it!

NNNOOOOO Kol can’t die. Daniel Sharman better be back.
