Millennials Lead the Way at #CameronResign Protest

By Hannah Anstee

After the recent expose of The Panama Papers it seems the UK population are sick of the current Tory government and no more so than Millennials.

We attended the Cameron Resign Protest in London on Saturday and were surprised by the amount of younger people we saw leading the way.

Bafta award winner Joylon Rubinstein was at the forefront of the demonstration and he gave a very inspiring speech to the crowds.

Check out our photo’s of the demonstration  below.

Meet Zach Miko the World’s First Plus Size Male Model

By Hannah Anstee

Check out the ‘Brawn’ Zach Miko, the world’s first plus size male model.  

 

Zach has just signed to IGM one of the world’s biggest modelling agencies.

Zach told homebt.com “Being a man of size, I never in a million years imagined that I would be a model.”

There’s a big body positive movement gaining momentum across the globe at the moment and Zach is riding that wave for men.

Zach is 6ft 6 and 19.6 stone, with a 42 inch waist so comes in at a great deal bigger and heavier than traditional male models.

“For a very long time I would refuse to go clothes shopping. I thought I didn’t deserve to get new clothes because I couldn’t buy clothes in my size. I always told myself no I can’t get new trousers until I lose enough weight to fit into this particular size. Men, like women, always aspire to look better.”

Men come in all shapes and sizes and we think it’s about time that this was recognised within the fashion industry, what a great move IGM 🙂

What do you think about plus size models? It’d be great to hear from you on Twitter.

“He said yes” So do we

by Hannah Anstee

‘For your next step’ an advertising campaign featuring a marriage proposal between two men is receiving praise from the gay community for pushing boundaries and challenging stereotypes.

Lloyds Bank is launching a new TV advertising campaign which demonstrates how it gives customers financial confidence to take the next steps in their lives.

Jake Hook, Editor in Chief at The Gay UK told Millenial Man: “The Lloyds Banking group have shown great strength in featuring a same-sex couple amongst a very diverse collage of people. In a time when still so many advertisements feature only opposite sex couples in heteronormative contexts it is truly heartwarming to see gay men represented in a positive and subtle way.”

Catherine Kehoe, Managing Director Group Brands and Marketing, Lloyds Bank said:  “We’ve adopted a contemporary and distinctive approach, focusing on the diverse and sometimes challenging moments in the lives of our customers today.”

Jake Hook also noted:”Of course there is still away to go to ensure all members of the LGBTI community are included in advertising in the UK, but this is a bold and welcome start from one of the UK’s leading brands.”

We think it’s certainly a step in the right direction. What do you think? Let us know on Twitter.
