Director Statement

Growing up as a closeted little queer boy, I learned to ignore my instincts. That little voice inside me that said it was uncomfortable when my friends said “that’s so gay” or “stop being a faggot”, or the little voice that told me which boy was cute, or could sense who else was a closeted little queer kid. My gut was tapping into some unspoken wavelength, creating a sort of compass in my body…that I wish I had followed. However, being raised in the northeast in the early 2000s, that little voice was unacceptable; following its advice would lead to ridicule or ostracization. So I learned to ignore it and push it down and override it and outsmart it. And then, after coming out as a young adult, I heard that little voice again. It was afraid to speak up, after being so long ignored, and I had to work hard to give it permission. I had to learn again to listen to that voice, the one that came from my gut. It’s a necessary guide that we all must learn to tap into, because it can lead us to deeper truth, and maybe even save our lives.
