(Edit: In trying to piece together what Yong is saying, it seems for events like the Golden Globes, only the big mainstream media are allowed in the venue because of limited space. But Darren also mentioned the premiere of Versace is tomorrow in a theater. I'm guessing Yong is not being given credentials to cover that event and to talk to the cast of Versace at that event tomorrow. She is especially upset about being denied credentials to cover the premiere of Versace, since a focus of Versace is the struggles of Cunanan and his family. Since Darren is part of the cast, he emailed the Versace publicists to get Yong credentials for the event tomorrow. That is my best guess of what Yong was talking about.)
yongchavez: When I told #DarrenCriss that I couldn’t cover/was declined creds to premiere of ACS:Versace w/c stars & tells struggles of a Fil-Am family seldom seen on TV, he took my phone & emailed the publicists. #speechless #PinoyPride @AsiansInHollywd @CAPEUSA

Darren Criss on 'Why black?'
January 7, 2017
I thought the night would have a somber overtone but it feels like a battle cry, it means something. When you are an industry at the forefront of consumption, it’s important to show we’re not going to stand for this.

What Pin Is Darren Criss Wearing At The 2018 Golden Globes? The HeForShe Pin Spotlights A Critical Issue
The 2018 Golden Globes kicked off Hollywood’s awards season in serious style, including actor Darren Criss, who made a statement with a unique lapel pin with an important message.
The biggest fashion and culture story of the evening was the fact that celebs wore black dresses and suits on the 2018 Golden Globes red carpet in a show of solidarity, unity, and support for survivors and accusers of sexual harassment, assault, and abuse. It was a moving display, and Criss took part in the action.
The Time’s Up pin was also a popular accessory of the night, as it called attention to the fact that as a society, we can no longer stay silent and allow this to happen across industries. But there was another fashion accessory which signaled change at the ceremony. Criss’ pink and black pinrepresents the HeForShe movement, which is a United Nations campaign for gender equality. The campaign also seeks to end sexual harassment and gendered violence.
The HeForShe campaign states on its website that gender equality is “not just a women’s issue, it’s a human rights issue. And when these powerful voices are heard, they will change the world.” It looks like Criss wants to show he’s part of that change.
There it is! Criss, who stars in the upcoming The Assassination of Gianni Versace, also posted a video on Twitter about why he was opting to rock this pin at the ceremony. He was invited to do so by his friend, singer Ricky Martin. He then passed invites along to his former Glee castmates. You can watch Criss’ video below.
“I am hoping to be a small part for a bigger change in whatever way I can,” said Criss in the video. It was a simple but powerful statement.
The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus slayed his black bowtie and a delightful disheveled bedhead. He also paired his Time’s Up pin with the HeForShe pin, showing three levels of support. It was a beautiful thing.
This is how fashion works on a critically important level. So many viewers undoubtedly tuned in to see the ensembles — and were ultimately further educated about important issues.
On its site, HeForShe also reaches out to those who want to donate to the cause, stating that it is working to build “a world where no one has to be afraid simply because of who they are.”
Currently, the HeForShe pin is not available for purchase in the merch section of the site. It was previously available via Amazon, but that is no longer the case. That could change, however, as the movement picks up steam and as more people inquire about it based on the fact that Criss and Reedus wore it to the awards show.
While wearing a black tux is pretty standard at awards shows, it’s nice to see actors like Criss take deliberate action to stand in solidarity with women and survivors. Now that’s allyship
Fingers crossed it works out for her! And nope, I don't know, but I would assume that's the case. The NY screening also had a bunch of models and fashion people show up. I'm curious to find out who attends this one.@Poppy wrote: I hope Darren's email works and she gets the needed credentials to cover the premiere tonight. So Lin, do you know if the premiere tonight is just for invited guests, mostly important Hollywood folks and media and friends/family?
Oh, I didn't know that, isn't that the show Darren's old roommate Etai is also in? I just knew he also went to the University of Michigan.@Poppy wrote:Pomme Koch is in The Band's Visit on Broadway.
Haha, they also call her Mia "Swifer". Someone certainly that word stuck in their brain while writing this article.@Poppy wrote:If you read the article, it identifies Mia as his wife. That is what Darren Criss Army is hinting at.

Darren Criss Called on Men to Hold Each Other Accountable for How They Treat Women
The Golden Globes red carpet was a significant one this year, as attendees marched down the red carpet wearing black to show solidarity with the #TimesUp initiative. Women and men alike donned black outfits on the carpet, and wore pins signifying their support of the movement, but for some reason, women seemed to be the only ones asked questions about #TimesUp and gender equality in general — and people took notice. In an interview with E! News’s Giuliana Ransic, actors Darren Criss and Edgar Ramírez took it upon themselves to bring up why they wore black, and the work they’re doing to support gender equality.
After being asked what the evening means to them, Edgar brought up the #TimesUp initiative, saying he’s proud to be wearing black to support it. While Darren said the reason for wearing black on the red carpet was sort of an “ominous cloud” over the evening, he said the show of solidarity is ultimately one of resilience.
“It’s actually kind of a celebration of resilience. I think it’s a great representation of our solidarity and our community, that hopefully will reflect positively on the people tuning in.”
And because Edgar pointed out that sexual harassment, misconduct and gender inequality “is not a women’s issue,” but “an all genders issue,” Darren highlighted his support of the United Nations Women’s movement, HeForShe.
“This is a campaign from UN Women called HeForShe. It kind of calls out the boys,” Darren said. “There’s been a lot of strong, inspiring women who have led the way in voicing their outrage, but this is our way of calling out the lads to be held accountable and to voice their own solidarity and say this is something we don’t stand for either.”
This is so important. Women certainly don’t need men to speak on or lead movements on their behalf, but having men uphold, amplify and support the voices of women calling for change is essential. By holding each other accountable, men can make a difference in how women are treated across the country and the world. In a speech to the United Nations in 2014, Emma Watson said it’s not just women who need men to work toward gender equality, men need it too.
“Men, I would like to take this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue too. Because to date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society despite my needing his presence, as a child, as much as my mother’s. I’ve seen young men suffering from mental illness, unable to ask for help, for fear it would make them less of a men—or less of a man,” she said. “In fact, in the U.K., suicide is the biggest killer of men, between 20 to 49, eclipsing road accidents, cancer and coronary heart disease. I’ve seen men made fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either.”
Ultimately, Edgar summed it all up. Anyone who has ever felt burdened by gender stereotypes needs to work toward shattering them, he said.
“It’s not only liberation movement for women, it’s a liberation movement for all genders,” Edgar said. “Everyone who has felt the burden of a gender stereotype or the pressure of fitting into an uncomfortable mold, or being intimidated against.”
