  4. EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK: Mika Tells Instinct, “Yeah, I’m gay.” Written by Instinct Staff | Friday, 03 August 2012 Many likely remember a 2009 Dutch magazine cover featuring pop star Mika with the sprawling headline “Mika Clears Things Up: Call Me Bisexual.” The only problem was that the story, which he calls “disappointing,” didn’t clear things up at all because it wasn’t exactly what he intended to say. Earlier this week, in a world exclusive, Mika sat down with Instinct to set the record straight (so to speak): “If you ask me am I gay, I say yeah. Are these songs about my relationship with a man? I say yeah. And it’s only through my music that I’ve found the strength to come to terms with my sexuality beyond the context of just my lyrics. This is my real life.” For more with Mika, including his first public comments about his relationship and the role he feels celebrities play as representatives for the LGBT community, check out the upcoming September issue of Instinct Magazine—coming soon. http://instinctmagazine.com/blogs/blog/exclusive-sneak-peek-mika-tells-instinct-%E2%80%9Cyeah-i%E2%80%99m-gay-%E2%80%9D?directory=100011
  5. 12th August - UPDATE! MIKA'S MOVING LETTER TO CORRIERE DELLA SERA http://27esimaora.corriere.it/articolo/mika-se-non-avessi-reagito-agli-insulti-avrei-tradito-il-13enne-che-sono-stato/ English Translation here http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/26273-mika-in-italian-press-2010-2015/?p=4017308 French: http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017456 I thought this deserved its thread in MFC because it was - and still is - such an amazing event that happened in our country that MFC archives should keep record of it. Mika's gig posters in Florence were nastily dirtied with an homophobic insult, as you all might have seen. We Italian fans were shocked and hoped Mika would never see them, but we understood by his management that he had done and that he had decided to react fiercely and turn the insult into a sort of powerful campaign against homophobia in Italy. We saw first Giulio Mazzoleni take on the hashtag #Rompiamo il silenzio (break the silence) that some fans had launched endorsing it and immediately after Mika himself doing the same. We then realized that Mika did not want to mute that insult (hence the hashtag #Rompiamoilsilenzio) so we followed him in an amazing campaign on twitter, voicing his and our rebellion against homofobia. Mika seems really involved in the fight the LGBT community is carrying on in Italy and it's not the first time he voices his support aloud. As you might know, Italy hasn't a law for civil partnerships yet, and a weak version of it is still lying in Parliament. The final vote on this law is being postponed all the time. It was promised by the end of July, then within the first week of August, now they put it off to September and probably it won't be licensed before the end of the year (if ever). The LGBT community is tired, depressed,, disillusioned. Some very disruptive lobbies are doing all they can to spread false information throughout society. People are fighting a daily war and are extremely frustrated. In this environment, Mika's campaign started and that is why it has had this amazing success, for which I'm totally in awe. I am grateful to Mika, to Giulio Mazzoleni and to the fans who started this twitter campaign with such an appropriate hashtag, to which they added #lamorefaquelchevuole (translation from Mika's song L'amour fait ce qu'il veut). Up to today, singers, journalists, opinion makers, bloggers, press and media in general have praised Mika and joined in the campaign. The Mayor of Florence wrote Mika apologies and had the posters removed. SKY tv is airing all his concert dvds and Good Guys video clip with the hashtag watermark. With this thread I want to gather all possible links in order to have all the material available and a memory of the awesome two days the Italian fan community has experienced. This time in Italy Mika did not advert a mobile provider, or a watch, or sunglasses. He did not show up at fashion shows. He did not attend frivolous tv shows. He helped in a good, noble and civil cause. This needs a special place in his fanclub, I think. Mika's tweets to start with! "I saw the pic of the writing on the posters and at first I decided to let it go and that the hate from some people, hate that I know too well, was better ignored. But you are right, let's break the silence. I don't fear those who discriminate me, nobody should. Love does what it wants." "The partecipation and pubblic support to the homophobic insult that I denounced have moved me for its unimaginable intensity. They witness the wide spread desire for changement and progress. All this goes beyond my dirtied face on a poster. it is about everyone. Turn one's back is a luxury, there are people who cannot escape from intolerance. I feel affected and inspired by these events" A better translation I've just found on boyculture.com: “The reaction and support against the idea of homophobic slurs has been heartwarming and strong beyond imagination. It's a testament to popular desire for change and progress. This is about far more than me, my defaced posters. This is about everyone. Looking away is a luxury. Some people have n where to turn in the face of intolerance. I am amazed and inspired by these events.” - Now I would do as follows: If you want to help adding links to material, or images, whatever!! choose ONE category among these ACHIEVEMENTS sarina http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017092 RELEVANT TWEETS robertina http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017104 RELEVANT TWEETS part 2 http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4018605 RELEVANT TWEETS part 3 http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4018606 RELEVANT INSTAGRAM POSTS Fralovesmika http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017112 RELEVANT FACEBOOK POSTS valmont69 http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017110 RELEVANT FACEBOOK POSTS part 2 http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017680 RELEVANT FACEBOOK POSTS part 3 http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017711 PRESS ARTICLES (online or paper) lucrezia http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017096 TV NEWS Fralovesmika http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017112 BLOGGERS robertina http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017183 FOREIGN MEDIA Littlelady UK http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017122 crazyaboutmika FRANCE http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017120 SUBTITLED VIDEOS Alyara http://www.mikafanclub.com/topic/32103-rompiamoilsilenzio-mikas-campaign-against-homophobia-in-italy/?p=4017127 (please suggest more) then write a post naming it with the category you've chosen and keep it updated.
