The Little Mermaid was originally a ‘love letter’ to the author’s male crush
As you know, Disney’s 1985 animated film The Little Mermaid is being made into a live-action movie. And while some white fans are upset that the titular heroine will be played by black R&B singer Halle Bailey, many others overlook the story’s interesting gay origins.
When Danish author Hans Christian Andersen wrote “The Little Mermaid” as a short fairy tale in 1837, he did so as a way to illustrate his failed attempt to woo a heterosexual man named Edvard Collin. Many biographers say that Andersen, who was attracted to both men and women, long pined for Collin even though Collin was of a higher class and disapproved of Andersen’s romantic overtures towards him and possibly one of his sisters.

LGBTQ+ Athletes Star in Powerful New Nike Film for Pride Month
Nike returns with a short film featuring several larger-than-life LGBTQ+ athletes for its BeTrue campaign during Pride month.
The film is a call to encourage athletes who dare to compete, whether or not they are on a level playing field with the other athletes in their sport. Professional athletes like WNBA star Sue Bird probably know a thing or two about the ways women are treated on and off the court, versus their male counterparts.
“For female athletes in a league that’s trying to grow in the U.S., the ‘rules’ we’re following are geared toward men,” Bird of the Seattle Storm, told Out on Wednesday. “So that might be the WNBA versus the NBA, and some of the ways they view us, or the standards they want to have. Things have always been done a certain way, and it’s never been thoughtful for different groups of people, so how can you succeed in that world?”
