“There will not be a magic day when we wake up and it’s now okay to express ourselves publicly. We make that day by doing things publicly until it’s simply the way things are.” Tammy Baldwin made history by becoming the first openly gay Senator in the United States in 2013, and these words from her speech at the Millennium March for Equality of that year sum up the reality LGTBQI+ people have to still face in every corner of the world, and also, the internet.
Luc Bruyère is not only resilient, but he is also an artist whose fearless imagery is full of creativity, and he has a lot to say, he has an experience and an identity to share with the world. This week he comes back with an important message: "What about my masculinity? It's a middle finger to patriarchy and toxic masculinity” whose video is an interesting visual reflection on the subject directed by Jordan Cardoso.
His first two singles Paradise and Love have racked up over 100k streams, he just premiered his own documentary Lucky at the Tribeca Film Festival 2022, he’s on the cover of the French magazine Têtu this month and was recently invited to the main stage of Munich Pride in July. At only 27 years old, the young man embodies the exuberance of a rockstar and the modesty of a poet. Lucky Love's voice is a work of art, inspired by James Blake or Antony and the Johnsons (Anohni), that fluctuates between English and French.
Dancing on stage, Lucky Love says, “was the first place where people celebrated my body and my differences. To me, that’s political”. He is a star who uses his body to tell a story we all need to hear. And that we do in the following interview with him, following the premiere of his new single Masculinity last Friday.
