Sonya Deville tells the importance of representing the LGBTQ community in WWE, her friendship with Mandy Rose and the evolution of women

During an interview with Allure, Sonya Deville talked about representing the LGBTQ community, her future at WWE, her friendship with Mandy Rose and the evolution of women. These are her most prominent statements:

When asked about her marital status during the Tough Enough interview

“When I was at Tough Enough, the first question they asked me was ‘Are you in a relationship?’ For any of the other contestants, it would have been a simple question to answer, right? But not for me. She was not yet openly gay. She had a girlfriend, but she never said it publicly. It was strange, I felt uncomfortable. My mom and dad knew it, but not many other people. Despite going crazy and feeling super awkward I ended up answering: ‘Yes. I still don’t have a wife, but I have a girlfriend. ”

“Since that day, in the last four years, I have been hugging and loving myself moreI have really accepted myself as I am. I am at a point where I now use the space I have to inspire and encourage the youngest people who are going through the same thing that I went through 4 years ago and I tell them: you should never be ashamed of who you are, especially who you love. “

“Now I use rainbow scarves in my pocket, I’m not ashamed to be a lesbian. Now I am so comfortable with who I am, and I am really evolving as a person every day. It’s really great to be able to represent all that in WWE. “

On the evolution of women

“The evolution of women was just beginning when I was getting into Tough Enough.I’ve always had great role models and my current partners were my inspiration. ” 

Your friendship with Mandy Rose

“ Mandy has been my best friend since literally the first day I stepped on WWE. I judged a book by its cover and thought it would be like a beauty queen. But when I really met her, she turned around and said: ‘What’s up?’ And I changed my mind: ‘She’s great.’ From that moment she became my best friend and was in all the important moments of my career. “

In the photos, which are entitled “A love story of New York”, the couple’s colorful traditional costumes contrast with the urban environment of some specific places in Manhattan such as the Ferris wheel of Bryan Park, which becomes witness to this Nice love story.

They are aware that in another part of the world they could not make their feelings visible, so they seek to convey hope to those who cannot live with the same freedom.

“I grew up witnessing and seeing different types of love, some in my family and others in Bollywood,” explains Sundas Malik . “When I got older and realized what my sexuality was, I never saw the representation of people who looked like me. I am very happy to have the opportunity to be that representation with the love of my life. “

Sonya Deville: “I want to inspire the youth of the LGBTQ community”

It was the photographer himself who shared them on his personal Twitter, causing anger at the message they carry implicitly. It is incredible the revolution that can involve simple photographs, so much, that in this case has even led to political reflection.

“When Anjali and I went viral, our relationship became politicized beyond our imagination,” says Malik. “The Hindu-Muslim, Pakistani-Indian dynamics of our relationship arose in most of the conversations about us. Although the overwhelming response was excellent, we never really thought that the bond we share between us would be a ‘restorative’ barrier between two religions and cultures that have always been in conflict. ”

The proof that they perfectly carry the coexistence of their religions and cultures is on the day that Malik attended his first puja, a Hindu prayer ritual that worships one or more deities. She who grew up in a “predominantly conservative Sunni” home and didn’t have too many Hindu friends was a little nervous, but “Anjali and her parents answered all my questions about the different gods and goddesses and what they represent during the ceremony. Now I’m excited and I want to learn more about Hinduism, while I can’t wait for Anjali to celebrate Eid with me! ” 

Eid is the biggest Muslim holiday. A great example that in front of love there are no borders or insurmountable differences of any kind, we are not few who think about it, comments like “that is really love”, “it shows that both love each other deeply”, “they the eyes shine when they look at each other “,” congratulations on their love and do not let anyone separate them “have been able to read among the thousands who have received the publication.

Valentina Sampaio is Victoria’s Secret’s first transgender model

Could it be that the lingerie giant is finally giving in? 

Ok, for Victoria’s Secret it seems that lately, everything has gone pretty badly. First, it was announced that this year the famous annual parade of the firm would not be broadcast on television. Then, just last week, a model admitted that the show would not even happen this year. All this because of the lack of inclusion by the American firm, and is that several times they confessed that they were not willing to leave the beauty parameters of“angelic” women. This was when everything started to go wrong and the decline in popularity began …

However, it seems that pressure from society has led Victoria’s Secret to reflect and include the first transgender ambassador in history among her portfolio of beautiful women. The chosen one has been the Brazilian model and actress Valentina Sampaio of 22 years.

She has taken care of sharing the news on her Instagram account 

Valentina Sampaio was hired as the image of a campaign for Victoria’s Secret, which would make her the first transgender model in history to be part of the lingerie company. The dummy shared a picture of her very happy sitting in a bathrobe in the backstage of a photoshoot for the PINK line.

A very important step

This could be just the beginning of a new strategy that Victoria’s Secret is considering in order to have a more inclusive and diverse representation of women . This event comes just after the significant decrease in sales following the controversial comments of group executives who denied the possibility of incorporating into their portfolio of transgender or plus size girl models in their annual parade.

It seems that the company is finally reconsidering. Do you think they manage to re-establish their empire of lingerie? Only time will tell…

Marvel is about to bring his first openly homosexual character to the big screen.

Although the Russo brothers claimed that the small inclusion of a homosexual person in Avengers: Endgame was just the beginning, it was actor Tom Holland who gave more details about it.

During an interview with The Sunday Times, the interviewer asked Holland the possibility of playing a homosexual or bisexual Spider-Man, to which the actor replied:

Yes of course. I can not talk about the character’s future because I honestly do not know about that and it’s out of my reach. But I do know a lot about the future of Marvel, and they will represent several types of people in the coming years.

The world is not as simple as being a heterosexual white man. It does not end there, and these films must represent more than one type of person.

Tom Holland and Zendaya embraced, scene from the movie Spider-Man: Far from home

Previously it was revealed that Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson, is a bisexual character, a fact that the same actress confirmed through Twitter and so some fans claim that this is the character that is so much talked about in the MCU.

On the other hand, thanks to Holland’s declaration we know that Spider-Man will not change his crush with Mary Jane and that Marvel will represent the LGBTTTI + community in the near future.
