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. “

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

Published

Instagram @elenasenti

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…

Tom Holland affirms possibility of representing LGBTTTI + community in the MCU

Published

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.

Tom Holland wearing the Spider-Man costume in the movie Spider-Man: Far from Home

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.

The multicolored flag has already become the banner of the gay collective. And the world of makeup gets the most out of it in the form of special collections and rainbow beauty looks that are magical. And, by the way, they show support for the queer community and celebrate diversity and love in all its aspects.

If you also want to join this makeup movement so inspiring under the hashtag #PrideMakeup, take note. Because this year the absolute tendency is to do it at the touch of technicolor shadows. And if you want to take your feet off the pot, you can always try the multicolored freckles, very artistic eyeliners and even rainbow lips. Is there a nicer way to say that love is love?
