“I Wanna Dance with Somebody” is the latest but probably not last biopic retelling the life of Whitney Houston, but it’s certainly perhaps one of the frankest and closest to the truths about her that we may get. If you’re a fan of the greatest singer of all time, this film may floor you as much as her voice and presence did.
After Chadwick Boseman’s passing, the future of Black Panther in “Wakanda Forever” and the rest of the MCU was unknown. But his and his character T’Challa’s legacy is continued and remembered in a film that explores what Wakanda must now do without their protector in the aftermath of his loss and what has previously happened. “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” promises to be perhaps Marvel Studios’ most dramatic and emotional offering yet.

It’s another step forward for Asian representation on the big Hollywood screen, exploring as many multi-faceted Asian diaspora identities as it does multiple universes and the concepts behind them and people.
“Sorry, Nenek” is another short story written by myself about a British-born half-Malaysian and half-Chinese gay man returning to Malaysia with his boyfriend. But how will his Malay grandma react to their visit? This short story is the first of two I will be posting here on Tan’s Topics this June for Pride Month.
Simon James Green is fast becoming a popular name in YA novels, especially those with an LGBTQ focus.
