Love it or hate [email protected] gets a season 2 & frankly, I'm here for it. The more we stray away from the typical label that is too often associated with our culture, the better.
.
I'm aware of how a lot of viewers (non-Colombians in particular) picked it apart for X, Y & Z. Yes, unfortunately certain episodes fell onto archaic stereotypical norms that were rather unsettling...but the storyline still had potential for more. We Americans tend to forget that the social constructs differ from here in the North vs. the South. What is seen as a near comical & rather miniscule change here in the States...can be seen as monumental for Latin American programming. Yes, I agree, that it is 2019 & things ought to be evolving at a much quicker pace...but that's the sad reality of each countries' selective mindset & unfortunate patriarchy. .
I'm hopeful that this time around SB will employ a variety of writers (of melanin & backgrounds) for their writers room. I pray that authentic practitioners/spiritualists will be seeked as onset consultants. And I'm hopeful that this fictional lens will lend itself to explore the departure of the typical "Narco" norm to showcase the bountiful & endless riches that is #Colombia. Its people, its melanin, its countless dialects (we all DON'T sound like we're from Medellin), its beauty, its history, etc. The stretch of possibilities are endless. Que #vivacolombiaπŸ‡¨πŸ‡΄ bella. πŸ™πŸ’ͺπŸ‘ #SiempreBruja #netflix #ourstoriesmatter #latinx #brujas #afrocolombiano #afrolatinx #supportinglatinotalent #wegottasupportourlatinxprojectscuznooneelseisgonna #diversestoriesmatter #diversifyhollywood #tvcommentary #nerdygirldiaries

Uff. I really can't stress enough my heartfelt devotion for the series @blackmirror.netflix. Every season is its own special entity...but this season truly takes the cake. #strikingvipers is the fifth season's first episode...and oh boy...does it pack quite the wallop.
.
Not only does this episode stretch the imagination of virtual reality...that's a given...but what the episode actually does is a phenomenal job at contorting the confines of sexual pleasure.
.
Essentially, what the writers have done is taken your brain & forcefully put it through some rigorous mental olympics trying to make sense of what is normally considered sexual preference, sexual appetite, sexual identity, sexual pleasure & the grey/sketchy definition of what is considered infidelity. It throws the viewer for a loop into a knotted web of self-introspection & how the pathos of those consequences carries out thereafter.
.
.
However, the curveball here for me at least, wasn't the context of the episode, (everything aforementioned) but rather the imagery of hypermasculinity being challenged here. In recent years of extreme homophobic speech popularized by mainstream like the idiocy known as "no homo" before a compliment can be shared between two straight males...this episode must leave this very pro-machista audience perplexed post viewing... I'm assuming of course. 😏 I thought it was quite fitting & rather titillating in the beauty that is storytelling to explore the notion of blurring the lines of binary conquests, hidden desires, or just mere pleasure seeking by two, strong alpha-males.
.
For me, this episode gets an A+ for its stark boldness & for the mental f*ckery that it represents. Ah, gotta love writers. Go stream #blackmirror S5 now available via @netflix. πŸ“±πŸ’»πŸ“²πŸ˜‰ #tvcommentary #nerdygirldiaries

#TBT: the fourth annual @fuerzafestofficial opening reception was where I had the pleasure of checking out this beautiful artwork on display with this year's focus on social activism. The exhibition showcased a variety of #Latinx activists who fought long & hard to have their voices, their stories & contributions be heard. I believe that the most impactful image for me, & possibly folks in my age group, was the portrait of #PedroZamora. Pedro was my first introduction to #LGBTQ life. He will forever be synonymous with vulnerability & a sense of humanity. This was monumental for reality television becuz up until this point tv programming had never showcased queer life in this setting. Gay life had always either been obscured or lampooned for comedic relief. I think the closest to reality we had at the time was maybe public access for most of us New Yorkers.
.
.
Sidenote: shout out to my "Brandy & Brenda" fans out here. "Now, GET OUT!" πŸ˜‚
.
.
#MTV (when they actually cared about programming or being ground breaking) took a chance in showcasing a Latino, gay male battling AIDS...but at the same time very much humanizing these taboo issues. Unfortunately, Pedro passed a little post production... but his legacy & the legacy of all showcased in this exhibition will forever be apart of American history, #Latinx history, and of course, our history. Que viva Pedro. πŸ‘Š #mtvtherealworldsanfrancisco #latinx #LGBTQ #queerlife #throwbackthursday #artwork #nerdygirldiaries #1990s

@jose.xtravaganza was honored last via @fuerzafestofficial for his decades of contributions to ball life, the arts, dance, activism, etc. It was such an accelerating experience to be only a few feet away from him last night. I remember my first introduction to his work was via Madonna's "Truth or Dare" doc. I was only like 9 or 10 when it first came out...but I was entranced by his style & grace on the dance floor. It was much later in my adulthood that I would learn about the #HouseofXtravaganza & their collective contributions to the #Latino music market... waaaaay before it achieved mainstream success. i.e. La India, Brenda K Starr, Marc Anthony, etc. Thank you @fuerzafestofficial for anotber magical evening of #LatinXcellence.

I can't stress enough how important it is to support each other in the artistic field. We need to diversify Hollywood, & the best way to do that is by showing up & buying tix. Our spending power (in this country) is our voice & is our opportunity to be heard. Go out & please support this film. Show Hollywood that we need, desire & demand our very own Latino superhero. Go see "El Chicano" now playing at AMC 25 on 42nd street.
