In case anyone is not having the best of days, remember that this performance of “Halo” exists.
Royce Reeds son.
And then yea gender policing and homophobia. God forbid a dancer teach her son some stretches.
This is an example of the foolishness we, as a people, are up against.
God forbid this boy have desires and dreams of dancing! How…un-manly! God forbid this boys mother or father be dance teachers, and god forbid they teach him a few stretches! (as Terrell said above) How…homo!
Let this boy BE. There are so many young children (especially children of COLOR) who are being deterred from dreams of working in the arts, because of ignorant ideas about those of us in the arts, and what it might mean to be an artist.
I battled through being called “gay,” “fag,” “sissy,” and other numbers of ignorant names for simply having an inclination to act, sing, and dance to the beat of my own drum.
A change gon’ come, though!
I will give my life for it.
smdh.. why are these people allowed to exist..
My grandpa has Alzheimer’s so he has no idea who my grandma is but everyday for the last three or four months he brings her in flowers from their garden and asks her to run away with him and be his wife and everyday she says she already is and everyday the smile my grandpa gets on his face is the most beautiful heartfelt thing I have ever seen.
