Dear kids that are starting band for the first time.
Instruments don’t have gender. If you are a boy and you want to play flute. Do it. If you are a girl and you want to play tuba. Do it. No one can tell you that since you are a boy you have to play saxophone, trumpet or another instrument like that. Or since you are a girl you have to play flute, clarinet or some instrument like that. Play whatever you want to. No one can tell you other wise.

[!] 170630 Big Hit’s Notice on Namjoon’s Participation at THE WINGS TOUR in Sapporo
Hello, this is Big Hit Entertainment.
We are notifying you about the situation as to why BTS’ member Rap Monster will not be able to participate in choreography [stages] at the Sapporo concerts.
On June 29th, while resting at the hotel in Sapporo, he bumped into the corner of hotel furniture and injured his right pinky toe. He was immediately received first aid at the neighboring hospital, but currently his toenail is lifted so the medical team has advised him to refrain from any movements that would cause pain or difficulties. Other than his toe, although he has not sustained any other injuries and his overall condition is good, in order for his injury to heal properly, following the doctor’s opinion, it has been decided that Rap Monster will not be participating in the choreography [stages] at the concert.
Therefore, for both days, July 1st and 2nd,of the Sapporo concerts, all other six members excluding Rap Monster will participate in the concert as normal with all of the choreography [stages], and Rap Monster plans do to his best to join them on stage.
We sincerely apologize for worrying the many fans who were looking forward to BTS’ Sapporo concerts, and we will do our best so that all of the BTS members will be able to finish off THE WINGS TOUR without any issues.
Got free VIP Suite tickets to the BTS concert in Newark last night // My sister already went to the first concert the other night and she had a good spot but even so she still wanted to go a second time and was begging me to go with her even tho i told her i was busy and lazy ((she didn’t want to be left alone with my workmates who were also going to be in the suite))
I was all “i don’t even know any of their songs and i have artworks to finish” but anyway ya I still got dragged
I liked some of their songs tho (and the choreography HHH) haha the concert was enjoyable even tho I had no idea what was happening 99% of the time (it was my first ever akjshskjdf) – also, that Rainbow Ocean (?) was so littttt
also after the philly show tonight i just want to say a big fuck you to everyone who says “”harry isn’t doing enough” or “that isn’t activism” or claim that we’re praising him too much when it comes to harry holding up the pride flags at his shows, or the trans flags now as well (or any other flag he may choose to wave. i saw a few bi flags there tonight as well). never in my life have i been to a concert where i felt just so universally accepted by everyone there for being queer, both by harry and his band and also by all the fans. when the mini pride flags were being handed out for the project, everyone was so excited to take a flag and thought it was amazing. i saw huge genuine smiles break out on peoples faces. we were sitting on the streets with mini pride flags out all day and no one questioned it. everyone felt free to be open without a worry. do yall know how meaningful that is to me?? people on the street even smiled at it. i saw at least 6 pride flags, big ones, on the line and in the front of general admission. one girl had a pride flag with “treat people with kindness” on it and held it up for harry to see. i walked around with a mini pride flag hanging out of my pant pocket all day, walking up and down the town and i had no concern about it?? i wasn’t scared of what was going to happen, i felt empowered and like i could truly just exist unapologetically as a queer person that day. the event staff took pride flags as well and had them in their pockets. harry was so clearly moved by the fan project to hold up the mini pride flags during sign of the times - i saw him turn to adam beforehand and just whisper ‘wow’ when he noticed. my point is, harry has created the environment in which all of that can happen!! harry created this space where fans can truly just be themselves without a worry and that is so liberating to have?? it matters that he holds the pride flag up so proudly. it matters that he made it a point to bring a pride flag out after it had been wrongfully confiscated. people are getting arrested for daring to bring a pride flag to concerts in other countries right now. so don’t yall dare act like what harry has been doing isn’t important or isn’t a form of it’s own activism and it’s incredible. do you know how moved i was that just… no one cared about people being queer in that room?? everyone walked out of that concert with their flags held high instead of shoving them into their bags and hiding them bc they were afraid to be themselves outside of that room. i saw people empowered to just truly be themselves, maybe for the first time in their lives. i waved the flag out my window as we drove out and people who weren’t able to get a mini pride flag for the project were saddened when there weren’t anymore. yall gotta stop acting like this isn’t some of the most fucking important shit harry has done. creating that strong of a safe space for his fans is an incredible thing he’s done so when yall say “he’s not doing enough” where exactly is he not doing enough??? pull your head out of you ass.
