The stereotypical extremes of male gay behavior are fueled by the same dark force: shame.The inevitable byproduct of growing up gay in a straight man’s world, the experience of shame in childhood and adolescence sends a boy the message that he is other and that he is worthless. To avoid feeling shameful later in life—and even after he is no longer explicitly shamed by his sexuality—a gay man will quietly rage against the memory of this message and strive to excel dramatically to prove it wrong. The stereotypical manifestation of this inner battle is a gay man’s success in the arts, fashion and in his body image; as with all the other forms of beauty, creativity and success, he is hiding behind the facades he creates.

so. much. rage.

To be gay in an uncompromisingly straight world is to struggle to find love and, once found, to hold on to it.

The scene in “Casablanca” where the entire cafe begins singing “La Marseillaise” always gives me goosebumps. It was such a personal scene for all of those people, most of whom were refugees from Europe at a time when it was unclear what the outcome of the war would be. Some of them are clearly crying—something that wasn’t scripted. It’s a powerful scene and is just one of many reasons I love this movie.
