I don't know about you all, but I have moments when I'm feeling nostalgic, ready to watch all the shows and movies that brought me so much joy in childhood.

Streaming platforms and apps have proven to be helpful, but for some of us whose favorite shows or films from the past are only available on DVD or VCR ( I happen to have both still), it can be challenging to watch certain things. For instance, watching the 1997 Rodgers and Hammerstein's made-for-TV Cinderella movie on YouTube despite the low quality would have to suffice, unfortunately.


But no need to worry.

On Friday, February 12, this will no longer be the case. Why is that? This iconic film starring Brandy and Whitney Houston ( Houston also happened to produce the movie) is finally coming to Disney+. I could not contain my excitement!

Let's take a little trip through memory lane to give appreciation for this film.

Brandy not only did a fantastic job portraying a lovely and caring princess, the cast was also very diverse and inclusive, which is admirable. It's hard not to recognize a magical world that represented all aspects of the representation within the world and that there is so much potential to follow your dreams and make them a reality.

It's hard to forget that both Brandy and the late Whitney Houston have some of the most angelic voices ever to grace the music industry.

All in all, it is thrilling that Disney+ is releasing the movie for the many of us who had fond memories of the chic and goddess energy of Fairy Godmother ( portrayed by Houston), the kindness of Cinderella, or Queen Constantina ( portrayed by Whoopi Goldberg).

It's equally as remarkable for the new generation to experience the wonders as well. February 12 can't come soon enough!

As COVID-19 restrictions begin to ease, many are facing the anxiety of re-entering into society. Over the last year, we've been obligated to remain asocial, and as a result, many of us (myself included) are finding human interaction painfully awkward.

For as long as I can remember, making friends was never a difficult feat to accomplish. To my friends and family, I've always been the most outgoing and bubbly person in the room. While that remains to be true, lately I've found social interactions to be challenging and somewhat strained. Thankfully, now that I'm fully vaccinated, I've been venturing into the real world more frequently.

Misogyny is a destructive knotweed among queer men

Progress for the LGBT+ community isn't on the cards until we address the virulent creeper in the room.

When it comes to gay and bi men's mental health, one of the biggest stumbling blocks we face is internalised homophobia and biphobia – likely from an early adoption of toxic behaviours picked up in the playground and carried on into adulthood.

Alexander Leon stated on Twitter recently that 'Queer people don't grow up as ourselves, we grow up playing a version of ourselves that sacrifices authenticity to minimise humiliation and prejudice. The massive task of our adult lives is to unpick which parts of ourselves are truly us and which parts we've created to protect us."
