Pride Month Special! Today’s episode is a love story but a tragic one, one which succumbed to societal pressure and influence.
The life of the Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen, his emotional attachment and love for his friend Edvard Collin resembles that of his most famous fairy tale, "The Story of the Little Mermaid". In the fairy tale, written when Collin decided to get married, Andersen displays himself as the outsider who lost his prince to another, just like in his real life.
