2016 has been a messy year, but however you may all have experienced it, I’m sure that there’s something we can all agree on. Let’s be happy this next year!
Wishing a Happy New Year to @therealjacksepticeye and @wiishu ^o^ I haven’t had the chance to draw fanart in the couple of months I’ve taken off from serious drawing, and it was wonderful to get to draw this kind of thing again! It’s great being able to contribute to the community. Happy 2017!
January 4, 2017
This year I decided to set some bucket list goals instead of resolutions! Hopefully I’ll be able to achieve them before 2018. What’s your biggest goal or resolution for 2017? Let me know! 🌼
get this - a Thai show about gay love refuses to cast gay men in the roles of gay men (I know, unbelievable)
they (the organizer of the show) released a statement saying that they were searching only for straight actors because they felt they would fit the roles (of gay men) better
not only did they basically admit that they’re not creating their series for anyone but straight fangirls by saying something like that (because they can still ship themselves with the straight actors even if they somewhat or completely believe in their OTPs), they’ve also used a really popular, openly gay rising actor, Newyear Kitiwhut (part of an internet-famous Thai gay couple) to draw attention, only to drop him in the final stages of auditions (he brought in a lot of fans and supporters to the show by auditioning)
it also shows that they don’t really care about the content they are creating and the story they are telling, just the popularity of it (even if the organizer of the show is gay himself, he still only wanted straight men to play the roles)
you can read the full translation of the statement here + the opinion of the person who translated
