The hidden side of Brandon Flynn

Brandon Flynn is currently starring in a Netflix teen drama 13 Reasons Why and he is a boyfriend of the British multi-awarded singer Sam Smith, as you may know. http://gaynewseurope.com/en/2018/05/21/ ... don-flynn/

Now a lot of talk and write about "fashion gay and queer culture"? According to Dr. J. Nicolas, gay culture has used two great resources for its approval: the struggle for civil rights (the right to be oneself!) and the movement for sexual freedom (in which the tradition of heterosexuality falls into decay and the border between gender and age is blurred). At the same time, gays have become a politically protected and economically independent group. In the consumer society, such a target group, of course, is recognized (primarily by the market).

Thus, the gay culture turns into a tradable commodity, begins to be cultivated and replicated. But apart from material reassurance, these luxury products associate gay identity with economic success: "Gay life is a good life." It is because of justification that the gay identity today finds liberal education in the arts, she is easily part of everyday life in the world of deconstruction

Michel Foucault in the " history of sexuality "proposed the theory of social construction: sexuality is not a" natural " and direct manifestation, and a cultural model, the content of which varies significantly depending on time and place. Now queer culture and homosexuality are experiencing a significant change in their status. It seems to us that the totality of modern culture, the totality of sexuality invades queer culture, subordinates its rules and laws. There is a mutual lapping of Homo - and heteroculture. In order to somehow analyze this process you need to consider it in time.

The boundaries and scope of time periods may vary from the specific historical conditions of a region/state. The complexity of the Russian situation is that our society enters the period of deconstruction and posthistory synchronously with the West. BUT! The gay community has not yet passed the stage of pride for its identity and has not really used the resource of the civil rights struggle ("for the right to be oneself"). It is not surprising that Russian society, which has not survived the vaccination of gay parades and tolerance, is not able to ensure the synthesis of gay identity, encouraging the entire queer culture to remain at the stage of identity adoption.

But back to the" ideal " European model. So, at the last stage, the queer culture is commercialized and assimilated by the majority culture.
Homosexuality is becoming more acceptable and even favored in some countries. Does this mean the end of a distinct gay culture?
The question of the gradual destruction of homosexual identity was raised by American author Daniel Harris in his book "the Rise and decline of homosexual culture". He traces the evolution of the characteristics of the culture of male homosexuals in America over the past thirty years. Earning the recognition of heterosexuals, he says, homosexuals as a community look ennobled, emasculated and glamorous: gays are now a kind of harmless product of the fashion industry, which has earned the benevolent look of the heterosexual majority.

So, Harris notes, gay magazines gradually abandoned stealth and euphemisms, and instead placed a "utopian image of the subculture of post-gay liberation", in which no one is afraid, not sick and not disgusting. The aestheticism of the" high gay style", which once had a purpose, has now turned into a meaningless parody of himself. Through private ads (their author has been following for over five decades), once single homosexual men sought friendship or just sex; now their relationship has become "heterosexual," etc.

The reason for this is, Harris says, that having achieved social recognition, homosexuals immediately fell into the category of attractive consumers. They are receptive, earn above average, and, often without children, have sufficient free funds that are not averse to spending. Letting Commerce into your life, gay people allowed it to install itself to the same ideals that and everyone else.

But at this stage, gay as it "shrinks", he leaves the arena of "world historical progress", plunging into the routine of satisfying their small household desires and needs. It is a kind of ornamental plant, necessary for any Corporation, if it wants to be considered modern and tolerant. The end of the era of struggle for recognition gives rise to a new generation of homosexuals, their new kind: post gay.

Post-gay is a concept that applies to homosexuals who treat their homosexuality calmly and naturally, rarely experiencing social discrimination, and usually have an environment that refers to homosexuality tolerant. Post-gay men do not consider sexual orientation a defining characteristic of their identity, and for which the stage of the struggle is behind us and we can move on..
