Illuminated -Heart-Small-Gif

Sometimes writing hurts.

I am writing the last few pages of my new short film. I can see this little boy as he says goodbye to his father. How is world changes in a second, he became a man because he had too. And what hurts the most is the pain in his dads face as he has to leave his son behind because he cant find work. He never knew all the pain his son would endure outside Kampala, being a gay man, a man of god sent to hell.

I really can’t help but feel the pain my characters are feeling. It hurts. What makes it worse is that I know that thousands of people feel this pain and that they are voiceless. I never wanted fame or fortune, all I want is to tell a story. A story that no one has heard, or one that we can all recognize, a universal arc of human feeling.

If you want to hear a brilliant song that I’m trying to get the rights to for my short check this out!

So if you hate anyone, black, white, christian , gay, muslim you need to realize you are an ahole.

We need to strive towards love, not because of a god but because we share this world for a split second, then it is done. No do overs. Stop the hate, stop the judgment, stop being a scared little ahole and be a man (or woMAN).

Yes if you know me these blogs might seem very personal, but they are, if you feel strange about it it’s ok that is normal. People are not used to seeing others real emotions, we tend to hide behind walls or mountains. I only live once, I will live it fully.

If you are a possible employer and want me to rather pipe down then guess again, that is not me. A life of silent frustration is not the one I will live.

If you have seen my short a few months from this post I hope it came across, I hope you felt it.

My First Meme – Do you remember yours?

So Wikipedia defines a MEME as:

” An Internet meme may take the form of an imagehyperlinkvideopicturewebsite, or hashtag. It may be just a word or phrase, including an intentional misspelling. These small movements tend to spread from person to person via social networksblogs, direct email, or news sources. They may relate to various existing Internet cultures or subcultures ”

My favourite MEME has to be GRUMPY CAT and the YES BABY.

Here is Grumpy CAT:

Here is the YES BABY:

So I always wondered who actually took the time to make MEMEs. It seemed like a bit of work. Yes some are super easy, but others can be very elaborate, even multiple images or animated GIFS are used.

I was watching BLUE JASMINE with my boyfriend when all of a sudden her character reacted to something her ex husband said. Her reply to his statement was a heartfelt “WHAT! Are you CRAZY!” . Cate Blanchett won the Oscar for that role a few days ago, and that moment won my heart. The next evening when I got home from work I told my boyfriend about the MEME I had made, and how people in this world was so CRAZY. And the crazy people have the audacity to call us gays predators and try and make laws that discriminate against us. And they use dumb arguments, like the Adam And Eve story, or Corinthians. The conservative republican views are so crazy and sad, but they think it is not ok for a woman who was raped by 3 men, stabbed, to have an abortion. Yes I’m going a bit deep with my argument, but the far right conservative republican mindset will cut you with every “weapon” they think they have.

I defend gay rights all over the social media platforms. I have a rehearsed speech for all 3 GAY BASHERS.

TYPE 1: Holy Man – Uses the bible and says that god created gay people, you were born this way, but you can change.

TYPE 2: Peace Man – This christian gay basher uses derogatory bible verses and 1950 propaganda to argument that being gay is unnatural behaviour because animals in “the wild” are not gay. He is wrong, google it if you do not believe me, you basher reading this blog just to troll me. I see you baby…

TYPE 3: Nazi/Stalin/Terrorist – These are those high school bullies that used to call you a FAG. They would hit you, verbally assault you and break you down to the point of no return. They also believe it is their christian duty to beat the gay out of you. Scare you to death of the social rejection of being gay,shame you. If you do not commit suicide before you turn 21, you should be safe.

Ok there are more types of gay bashers, but if you are not one of these 3 that is great, that means there is hope for your heart. I would watch a BuzzWorthy video about two gay dads, then some ignorant fool will write one of the above mentioned styles of comments. So I used to Google bible versus to fight back, I read more of the bible then them. Then I’d waste 20 mins of my time arguing my case for a open and loving future, where we can all just be bi until proven otherwise.  But those days are over, I can now use my MEME to answer for me “WHAT! ARE YOU CRAZY?” , Cate Blanchett in tears from the frustration of the stupidity of masses. The ignorant, closed minded, shoe boxed lives most people live in. I won’t get too deep, no time for tears, we have LGBT people out there going to Jail for who they are, their colours muted in Russia, their bodies destroyed and vandalised. WE NEED TO ASK THEM! THESE so called LEADERS, these so called SAINTS, these so called righteous men and woman, we need to aske them—–> What? Are you Crazy!

 

SO HERE IS MY FIRST MEME:
