Hey, did you know our very own Peyton wrote a piece about LGBTQ representation in Star Wars for Vanity Freaking Fair? Let’s all take this moment to marvel at what a person can accomplish when they don’t spend all day eating gummy worms and trawling for ancient John Oliver/Sailor Moon crossover fanart on DeviantArt.

But despite Kennedy’s call for “many more gay people,” the Star Wars films have thus far failed to introduce a single L.G.B.T.Q. character, let alone a central gay couple. Queer fans have lobbied since 2015 for a romantic relationship between Poe and Finn—a move Boyega would support, as he indicated in an October 2017 interview. “Oscar is always looking at me with love in his eyes, and I guess that the fans saw it,” the actor said. “And then they realized that either [Poe] needs to chill or come out.”
“Selfies are part of Chinese culture now, and so is Meitu-editing selfies,” she said. In nine years, the company—whose motto is “To make the world a more beautiful place”—has almost literally transformed the face of China. There’s a name for this new kind of face, perfected by the Meitu apps, which you now see everywhere: wang hong lian (“Internet-celebrity face”).
And here it is, your Moment of Zen:
