In this world of homogeneity where most if not all of us have the same pursuit in life and where everyone dresses almost the same, I find courage from those who defy social norms and simply wants to be different.
As the fashion industry dictates the latest trend, it is inevitable that we will see someone wearing identical piece of clothing. We all have been in this awkward situation; even celebrities haven’t escaped this on the red carpet. With this in mind, I’ve listed some tips that won’t just help you be different but will help you find your own individual style.

Woo-hoo! We did it! Yeah!
You’re probably wondering why I’m excited. As of yesterday, gays and lesbians can wed in California. Proposition 8 (a constitution that prevented gays and lesbians from getting married) has now been overruled, 2-1.

Where in gay culture are the people of color? This is the question that Rob Smith, a gay writer asks in a recent article: Opinion: The bearable whiteness of being gay.
I stumbled upon this article, and it immediately captured my attention. While it is written in the perspective of a black male, I feel that many of the emotions he describes coincides with the members of the gay Asian community– or at least powerfully with me.
To be a gay man is to expect to be eviscerated–especially from other gay men. Nowhere is it more evident of gay-on-gay slime than in the morass of gay dating. Let’s face it – the majority of guys are led by their sticks; when it points, the stick holder follows. And when it points downward, some guys would rather grab a shovel and dig a hole rather than spend time with someone they don’t like, even if they’re left with father hand and his five sons for the night.
I guess the adage that a guy looks for any hole to plough into carries much falsehood. Judging by the methodical weeding out of ethnicities, sizes, ages, and shapes–which has reached heights of infamy–males have evolved. Evolved into what, I’m not sure. Usually the determining factor is the photo, and if, say on craigslist or a gay chat dating site, your photo doesn’t catch the eye of someone, you’re back to scrolling through every iteration of sexual desire and affinity from the continuous postings and entrances and exits of the room.

Men today have greatly evolved in many aspects of their lives and fashion is just one of them. Needless to say, the word “metrosexual” reflects today’s new breed of heterosexual men who simply love to feel and look good.
This is being addressed by the top minds in the fashion industry as portrayed in their major fashion shows this Spring/Summer 2012. Here are some trends to watch out for this season.
