Hello friends. Here’s the intro & AB part of the show Taboo.
I have a firm belief that this show is focused on perpetuating stereotypes and showing parts of the subculture in a negative light. This show enforces a desire to conform & live within the standards of society even if it means sacrificing your mental/emotional health.
The couple featured on this show does represent many AB/DL folks out there, and I’m not speaking ill of the manner in which they live, this is just yet another time when a depressive character is featured on TV as an adult baby. That said, he’s an intelligent guy who’s been through quite a life, and I remember following his site when I was first starting out online. I’ve seen posts by that he was “misquoted” by NatGeo, something I tryed to avoid by staying on-point with the film crew.
This makes me excited about my first chance to represent us on the national level. Again, I can’t speak very much about it, but I’m just really looking forward to showing us as happy, worldly, energetic folks who just have a different way than some to pursue happiness. And even if it turns out more negative than I expected, they contacted me initially and were going to make the episode with or without my involvement, I’m sure I’m not the worst choice out there.
Here’s the video, share where you please. I’m not sure if it’s going to be taken down by Vimeo, but I’ll keep vigilant about posting it.
Feel free to download the full episode (350 Megs) from my Dropbox… don’t tell NatGeo what i’m doing here 😛
