Get Real

Posted: September 14, 2012 in Opinion

Years and years ago while I was still in the closet. I watched this film. Back then it made me cry (which I don’t do easily, I’m tough I am). It made me upset because I so wanted to be like Stephen Carter in the film. Open about who I was. Not being something everyone else wanted me to be. But being true to myself. I was more like John the other guy who was so scared to be himself that he lived two lives. That, Is hell.

Anyway if you want to understand more of what it feels like to be gay it’s a good film to watch. There are some classic lines in there. But the key to the film is the speech that Stephen gives at 1:50.
