!! OMG, George Takai compares current Trump policy of keeping children in cages to his internment !!

At least during the internment, when I was just five years old, I was not taken from my parents. My family was sent to a racetrack for several weeks to live in a horse stall, but at least we had each other. At least during the internment, my parents were able to place themselves between the horror of what we were facing and my own childish understanding of our circumstances. They told us we were “going on a vacation to live with the horsies.” And when we got to Rohwer camp, they again put themselves between us and the horror, so that we would never fully appreciate the grim reality of the mosquito-infested swamp into which we had been thrown. At least during the internment, we remained a family, and I credit that alone for keeping the scars of our unjust imprisonment from deepening on my soul.

!! OMG, Emmerdale casts first trans character/actor to play groundbreaking character Matty !!

Emmerdale will introduce its first transgender character next week and actor Ash Palmisciano who is also trans, will be playing Moira Barton’s long lost child Hannah, who disappeared in 2012, and has now transitioned as returns as Matty. Ash commented on the exciting new role stating:

“It’s absolutely amazing and a fantastic opportunity – for me personally, but also for the soap to build a groundbreaking character. It’s something new, it’s never been done before on the soap, and it’s rarely been done anywhere else. It’s very exciting and I can’t wait to see what people think of the character.”

“It’s quite the entrance! Matty has come back because he needs his birth certificate. At first, he toys with the idea of knocking on the door and speaking to his mum and then he realises that’s going to be far too awkward. Too much time has gone by. So he breaks into the house while no one is in,” explains Palmisciano.
“And just when he’s found what he’s looking for, he’s confronted by Cain, who thinks that Matty is an associate of drug dealer Simon. So it all ends in a confrontation, Matty gets knocked out, and just as he’s coming round, Moira enters the room…”

Uhhh YEP – that DOES sound like the plot of a soap opera, alright! The character, previously known as Hannah Barton, appeared on the soap from 2009 to 2012 played by Grace Cassidy. Make sure to check out Ash‘s debut when he hits Emmerdale soon!
