I Give A Damn, Do You?

A lot of interesting stuff happened this week in terms of people, particularly celebrities, coming out. Ricky Martin announces that he is gay and Anna Paquin announces that she is bisexual as a PSA for Cyndi Lauper’s “Give A Damn” campaign.

People who have read my previous blog posts probably know how much I love dance, which is why I enjoy watching Dancing with the Stars. What I found really touching was watching Niecy Nash and Louis van Amstel’s touching tribute to relationships on this week’s Dancing episode. Their waltz told the story of an interracial couple in the ’60s. However, those who are aware of current events (i.e. those listed above) can definitely relate to an issue America is currently facing today – and that is Gay Rights.

For those who are somewhat familiar with American history, 1960s was the big Civil Rights movement. By bringing such awareness to a mass community of TV watchers and internet browsers (myself included), could it help change society’s views on equal rights?

Although this blog has nothing to do with yoga, it does address the issue of creating wellness, not just for an individual but also for a community. Though I am not speaking on behalf of YogaHub, I really take their saying to heart, “creating change on a global scale” – and I would like to help create that change.
