I guess I was in some sort of shock so I distracted myself from those feelings by starting a new TV show, as I usually do. Little did I know that would be the day I’d become crazily obsessed with a Norwegian teen drama. I … Continue reading Skam and its International Appeal
How many movies have you seen where a main character is gay? How about bisexual? Surprisingly, most people don’t even know what bisexuality entails. It isn’t only the fault of the miseducation of the subject, but it is also the fault of media excluding diverse sexualities from the entertainment field. So, when Netflix starts recommending a film which includes exactly this, how could an LGBT+ … Continue reading “Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List” Movie Review
