Don't get me wrong. I think that as a society we have moved forward and made great strides to be more loving and accepting of those who are being affected. But there is so much more we can all be doing as allies, parents, family, friends, teachers, neighbors, etc of lgbtq+ youth to ensure that this world is a happier and more accepting place for those around us. // #pridemonth
So there's this anime called Perfect Blue which Darren Aronofsky completely based Black Swan off of. He bought the rights or had the rights to the story or whatever and it tells the same story but in Perfect Blue she's an aspiring actress. This movie also has shots from his earlier movies too which I thought was pretty interesting. But I think people think of anime as weird (definitely me at one point) so they don't give it a lot of credit when most early animes are like the base of modern movies.
