I wish more people would acknowledge Cher as the first person of ME descent to win an oscar for best leading actress
This could be because either 1) people don’t know that Cher is Armenian 2) people don’t consider Armenians to be middle eastern because of a racist & islamophobic stereotype that middle easterns are all Muslim and all Arab which leads to the erasure of religious and ethnic minorities in the Middle East.
But yes, I agree with you.
And it’s great that she’s the first middle eastern because not only does she represent middle easterns, but minorities in the Middle East both in religion and in ethnicity, which are a persecuted people (persecution of MENA Christians & Armenian genocide).
Just like with Mahershala Ali and Asghar Farhadi representing not just Islam, but minority sects that get persecuted.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that it’s nice to see people who are minorities even within their race (cher by being a non Arab & non Muslim middle eastern) to be so successful.
a mix of over 100 of my favourite gay anthems, including:
diana ross - i’m coming out | abba - dancing queen | whitney houston - so emotional | troye sivan - wild | hayley kiyoko - girls like girls | little mix - secret love song pt 2 | cher - believe | rupaul - jealous of my boogie | kylie minogue - all the lovers | george michael - freedom! ‘90 | queen - i want to break free
this simply is one of the best things that ever happened and one of the only things that manages to cheer me up a little in those dark times… i watch this every single day (also i live for their outfits and the overall stage aesthetic)
