Ruby Rhod is one of my favorite characters in sci-fi ever because he is Luc Besson’s vision of the hetero sex symbol of the future: a flamboyant, emotionally labile man who wears skin-tight leopard print or decks himself in roses, a man who accessorizes with big jewelry and dabbles in cosmetics. And the ladies love him. Everything about him screams “gay” according to our stereotypes, but he’s portrayed as a 100% straight sexual dynamo.
Besson is one of the few directors I’ve seen who actually recognizes that our ideas of sexuality and gender performance might have changed drastically in the future.
I’ve always loved gender fluidity as a kid. I never thought it was weird, I was always in awe and in love.
Prince & RuPaul were some of the first two people I’d ever fallen for, still in love.
IS THAT WHY YOUR VOICE SOUNDS SO DIFFERENT ON THE PHONE
MY VOICE IS HIGHER THAN THIS
OH MY GOD
NO WONDER WHY I AM A SERRANO IN CHOIR
A serrano is a small green pepper. The word you are looking for is soprano.
I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT AND NOW I’VE BEEN LAUGHING FOR A SOLID 15 MINUTES
I AM LEGIT CRYING!!!
