The MTV Movie & TV Awards celebrates the gifts and talents of the LGBTQ community. Two people of the same sex kissing is no longer viewed as gross, but praiseworthy. Brian McBride wrote: “One of the night’s biggest moments came when Ashton Sanders and Jharrel Jerome won “Best Kiss” for Moonlight. It may not sound like a big deal, but that particular award is entirely voted online by fans, which means that younger viewers voted for the first time for two queer African American characters to take home the win.” “This award is bigger than Jharrell and I, this represents more than a kiss,” Sanders said in his acceptance speech. “This is for those that feel like the others, the misfits — This represents us.”
Like it or not, the world is changing. The younger generation relies on their EQ, emotional intelligence, more than IQ, intellectual quotient. EQ is self-awareness, empathy, and the ability to deal sensitively with other people. It’s clear societies beginning to appreciate the gifts, talents and abilities from a variety of different sources and people.
