The trans celebrities blazing a trail to acceptance
As the TV, film, music, and fashion industries become more and more inclusive, the number of roles for transgender people is increasing rapidly every year. Groundbreaking TV shows like the ballroom culture drama 'Pose' with almost entirely LGBTQ+ casts are putting the spotlight on the talent and beauty in the transgender community that has long been overlooked. It's a big move for representation, and indeed many actors, musicians, athletes, models, writers, and other public figures are putting themselves forward to create new spaces in their industries. Their work inspires young trans people who may be struggling with their identity in a world that sorely lacks representation of LGBTQ+ stories.

Celebs open up about their time in prison
Boris Becker is out of prison after serving just eight months of his 2.5 years sentence. The German tennis legend was found guilty of several bankruptcy offenses and sentenced in April 2022. In a March 29 interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Becker said he felt lucky to be alive after his incarceration. “Prison life is a very dangerous place," he admitted. "It’s very scary. It’s a real punishment." In a previous interview with German broadcaster Sat 1, Becker said that another inmate tried to kill him. In discussing his survival strategy, he told Amanpour, “The only currency you have is your character and your personality – literally – and you better make friends with the strong boys because you need protection, you need a group of people that look out for you.” Many celebrities have done prison time. And while some never opened up about their time behind bars, others have confessed what it was like to be incarcerated.

The viral children's song 'Baby Shark' is being made into a movie, and rapper Cardi B and her family are set to voice several of the characters!
