Preppy Olympics uniforms? Yes it’s here and it’s by Ralph Lauren! The velvet leotards, the flips and the landings are all oh so lovable! Standard red, white and navy blue are used (and they compliment each other perfectly). No doubt the American team of this year’s Olympics will look preppier than ever. The opening-ceremony look consists of classy navy blazers with white driving hats and canvas walking shoes; for the closing ceremonies, it’s classic polos and sleeveless sweaters.
The cause for the International Day Against Homophobia, its central topic of interest, the common theme that provides information for each of its endeavours remains a universal, multi-faceted and historical phenomenon: homophobia. To show support, wear rainbow or red to show your pride on may 17th.
In Canada, recognition, for lesbian and gay communities, has been first and foremost a judicial acceptance brought about by the adoption of the Charter of Human Rights. However, judicial advances will remain only that until a complete, unlimited social acceptance of homosexuality is achieved and homophobia wiped out. To achieve this goal, the Fondation Émergence proposed in 2003, along with partners, to hold each year a special day dedicated to the social recognition of homosexual experience.
This is the third music video from their newest album Dark Passion Play. The lead singer for this single is not Anette though (no, not Tarja either!), but Marco. If you’re familiar with Nightwish, it’s no doubt that Marco is good at heavy metal and hard rock. Yet I was never sure about him with songs like this (remember his scary performance in “While Your Lips Are Still Red”?) He truly delivered in this song though, showing he can sing outside his comfort zone. Reminds me of how Tarja always sings as if she’s telling a story. Rock on, Marco.
