This year, apart from one of the worst news was that was won the YES of Prop 8 in California, producing and one of the largest discrimination against the LGBT community in recent times and a right already obtained wrest us as was to be married to the person we love, for the simple and absurd whim of leaders homophobic hate ignorant among their followers.
Apart from that, this year has been good for lesbian visibility, we have seen in the media as at present more lesbian presence in other years and this fills me with pride because I know that although we each step cost. ... we are moving towards equality, and this presence that we now have an impact on society generally positive (though of course there are always exceptions) now you are saying to the world "heyyy we are exist, we are here and we have the same rights that you are lesbian, and we are wonderful".
The best moments left with the news and we saw this year and do not forget
The best series of lesbians remains excellent, and I think it will always be our beloved The L Word, and in 2008 made us live is one of the largest lesbian, in Season 5, filled us with joy by many returned one of the most famous couples in the world and endearing lesbian TIBETTE, I know that many can not forget that magical moment that we live in chapter 5x04 "LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED" in 46 minutes 49 seconds with the background music of Alice Smith and her "Dream" ..... Bette when Tina takes the arm and kiss ... by end of stress after 4 seasons, finally had a hope to see them back together and happy.
And so it was to the delight of all followers of the series, we were able to see again this year some of the best sex scenes TIBETTE.
Leaving us submerge in a deep indignation and remove a couple who had already won the lesbian community, because one way or another we had seen in a completely heterosexual. But despite everything has left us an unforgettable moment for all time:
In regard to series in Spanish, the most impressive and gave us more visibility this year, was the partner of Pepa and Silvia in the TV series Paco's Men (Los Hombres de Paco) (until that time hearing entirely heterosexual) peak in Spain.
In a series of police between bullets and rude men, there is a love story between a divorced coroner, Silvia and a lesbian police officer, Pepa.
This story has stolen the hearts of many inhabitants of our communitie, not only in Spain but in the rest of the world who do not speak Spanish, for its freshness, its naturalness, for being so entertaining and fun for their players and so sexy beautiful, and will positively reflect a lesbian relationship in a society full of prejudice and highly maleness as the police force.
Our big moment of PEPSI:
Also in Bones we had kissing between girls, Angela y Roxie .
Also this year saw the end of the love story of our beloved Ashley and Spencer from South of Nowhere.
Turning to Movies one of the best lesbian-themed films that total has come to cinemas this year has undoubtedly been I Can´t Thing Straight, the love story of a Jordanian woman Tala (Lisa Ray) to be married and Leyla knows interpreted by my adored Sheetal Sheth, who is the girlfriend of her best friend, and then begin to fall in love, a sense of duty and cultural boundaries is the Tala away, but the time will united again.
This year we were also highly visible thanks to the sport, many inhabitants of our planet have participated in the Beijing Olympics over a dozen female athletes competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China, and took away several medals. Here the post.
Among the musical surprises of the year we launch the first album the group of Uh Huh Her made up for our beloved Leisha Hailey and Camila Gray, the band has very good music and has been well received by our community.
Well this is a quick summary that leaves us in 2008 and that despite all the negative that could happen to it, both personally and LGTB community level, this year we can be more visible to the world, and I hope that Next year will be much better.
On the aims for next year every one of you will have theirs out of the closet, find the woman of her life, stop smoking, etc., all we ask is that with all my heart whatever the purpose for this new year, which is the main thing to be happy and assured them that this is not a cliche phrase, and I mean this utopian happiness and generic with that dream.
If not that happiness is within our reach, we can get it for ourselves if we suggest that, despite everything that can happen, whether we are alone, if we do not find love if we finished a significant relationship, if we go into the closet, but if we are outside our families do not want to see us more if we feel the weight of discrimination, if we are locked in a life that we do not want, if we are battered, homophobia if we ever hit, if not we like the world around us or their ignorance.
I ask you to always look for ways to be happy, to feel well, smile, have hope, the purpose of this new year is to try and be happy to fight with all our might to achieve this. Do not ever stop smiling, do not let us remove all the smiles, or that anyone has the power to hurt.
That is my intend for this year. :)
I hope .... feel it and I believe that the world equal to that dream, is not far away.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL THIS 2009 AND WE NEED TO BRING HAPPINESS IN OUR LIVES.
