Title What Keeps Me Calm: Watching ‘Dark Blue Kiss’ Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Metro Style Media type Web Country/Territory Philippines Date 24/08/20 Description I think of DBK when I think about coming out. I believe coming out is a favor we do not exactly for ourselves, but for others. We don’t come out because we want to find a place in this world; we come out because we want to let others find their place in our lives.
When I imagine the worst things that could happen, I think about Kao’s story and find a glimmer of hope.
Thomas Baudinette, a lecturer at Macquarie University in Australia who studies Thai BLs and its fandom culture in Southeast Asia, says that we look at BLs as a “resource of hope.” That is why the cheeky phrase “sana all” has found a special place in the everyday vocabulary of Filipino fans.
