My film is all about flipping over the “traditional” view on gays.
(roll down to watch trailer if you don’t want to see my babbling)
One day, the co-director of this film, Paul, came and asked if I was interested in doing the Kinsey scale test, which measures how “gay” or “straight” I was. Naturally, both of us got “equally homosexual and heterosexual”—which basically says we are bisexual.
This test could be inaccurate, of course, but while my friends did the test, I noticed that more than half of them denied they were attracted to their own sex and were somewhat repulsed by the idea.
I can imagine. My own parents never ever talked to me about sexual orientation and stuff. Once my mom and I went shopping, and my mom commented on a celebrity who didn’t look manly, saying that he looked like a gay. I argued with her, not because I liked the celebrity, but because my mom was holding some serious stereotypes of gays.
Plus, I didn’t like the way she said the word “gay”; as if it was an embarrassing topic or something.
I don’t like homophobia. I don’t like traditional values (my mom isn’t traditional but hey, everyone has an opinion).
