Coming Out with PowerPoint

milkboys Mixed & Random 14 Comments

Coming out to friends and family can be a hurdle, but coming out to a group of strangers in a public setting is another feat entirely. That didn’t keep Benton Sorensen from coming out as transgender during a class presentation about inspiration. After showing a picture on the overhead projector of a young girl with a pretty smile and long, light brown hair, Sorensen confidently shares his story of female-to-male transitioning with a classroom full of strangers.

Our society places an incredible amount of pressure on all of us to fit its predetermined heteronormative standards of sexuality, sometimes making it difficult for any person on the queer qpectrum to find a voice. But Sorensen’s experiences shared in both his class PowerPoint as well as on his YouTube vlog make him a fearless proponent for trans education and acceptance. “Our professor assigned us an ‘inspiration’ project,” he writes in the video’s description. “We had the freedom to do whatever we wanted with it, so I thought it was a great opportunity to come out to my new class and tell them that I am a female to male transgender.”

Teenage Dance

milkboys Films, Films & Cinema 14 Comments

Andrew, who’s playing the main character, submitted this and wrote: “Here’s a short film I acted in called Teenage Dance about one teen’s decision whether to attend their school’s dance as they appear or want to appear in their dreams.

The short film was featured on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) this past July [2014], and at LGBTQ film fests in Toronto, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Kingston, and Albuquerque (where it screened in a shorts series with your recently-posted film Hey Kowalski!). It’s also on a youth issues compilation DVD curated by the International Film Festival Rotterdam and used for sensitivity training by a consulting firm in Scotland.

I was cast because as a genderqueer person, the director felt I understood this character’s emotional background and journey.
Hope your fans enjoy it! “

Wonderwear Wednesday *4

milkboys Wonderwear Wednesday 37 Comments

wonderwearwednesday003

This Wonderwear Wednesday is an odd one: it’s the first (and probably last) time that it features a guy who’s actually not that pretty. The story behind the picture was just too weird to let it pass though. wonderwearwednesday003Above you see a recent Calvin Klein ad featuring Justin Bieber. This one caused a bit of a controversy after a gif turned up that implied that this photo was indeed photoshopped to make Justin look better equipped than he is. You can see this gif on the side. These allegations didn’t fly with Justin’s legal team, they forced the creator of the gif to put up a statement in which he explains that, according to Bieber, the ad is not photoshopped. Justin’s trainer also chimed in, claiming that he’s well endowed for American standards.

Whatever! There’s always Ronan Parke if you want to see a cutie in Calvins ;)

“David Thibault is only 16 years old, yet somehow when he sings Blue Christmas” by the late King of Rock and Roll, he sounds EXACTLY like him. When you listen to David, do yourself a favor and close your eyes. This Canadian teen’s voice has that same velvety smooth tone that Elvis’ fans around the world fell in love with…and believe me, it’s VERY hard to imitate!” –via Little Things
