how could I be this way?

how could I be this way? No matter how open-minded you are, no matter how open-minded the world is, growing up in mainstream culture, you will panic when you find yourself in the slightest bit different from others. I may slowly accept myself but I will still ask why this is the case, how am I like this, why does this happen to me... Homosexuals are not sinners, maybe they will always be viewed differently, this It's not anyone's fault, and the world will never be fair, just like in the movies before the 1960s, as long as homosexuals were involved, they would always end in a dead end. Just like there are always places where the sun cannot shine, no matter how advanced the society is, some people will still be prejudiced against them.

The Celluloid Closet quotes

  • Narrator: Hollywood, that great maker of myths, taught straight people what to think about gays and gay people what to think about themselves.

  • Harvey Fierstein: There are lots of needs for art and the greatest one is the mirror of our own lives and our own existence. And that hunger that I felt as a kid, looking for gay images, was to not be alone.
