  1. This was actually quite wonderful and touching, especially from the beginning until 1:30. But how about a more inclusive rewrite for the 1:30 to 2:00 minute stretch, because we don't all just contribute to art and culture: "God needed a soldier who would protect the freedom of those that too often wouldn't protect him, and keep harm from those who would do him harm; a hard worker to help sustain the world, even if that world didn't always try to raise him up; a great communicator, to speak of courage and love even as he was often regarded with deafening silence or angry shouts; an artist to make the lives around him more beautiful, even as his was so often made ugly; and a father and mentor to be all those things every day for children who would one day be able to grow old in a world that was more peaceful, more sustaining, more courageous, more loving, more beautiful. So God...made a gay man."

  3. Should have been "So God Made Gay People"

  4. Rather sexist isn't it?
    I guess God only made young, pretty gay men, no homely, fat or older gay men.

  5. While I can relate to much of the narration here and felt pride, I also felt a bit of disappointment that lesbians and transgendered folks were not included...are their struggles also not our struggles? In my experience, it is a resounding yes. I know some issues each of us face are are unique to each, but the overwhelming negativity and hate are things we all face and must conquer together.

  6. @Tessie Tura: God? made a lesbian out of the gay man's rib. LOL!

  7. This is freaking awesome, and perfect for Valentine's Day. And yes, I hope a lesbian filmmaker and a trans person make their own version of this video!

    I feel so good right now. :) Love love love, people, everything else is chicken feed.

  8. Pfft, he also apparently made all gay men under 160 lbs and mostly looking like chiseled Macy's models.

    Oh yeah I forgot, anyone over 200 lbs in the gay community gets automatically exiled to purgatory, so I guess they don't count.

  9. i loved it. version 2.0 can be about lesbians and 3.0 transgendered ... but this is a great vid, i admit. Hopefully some kid will see it and be proud of himself.

  10. STEFAN - that was beautifully written and imagined. Thank you such a contribution.

    And ya, this was good. I regard the expression "gay man" a symbol for all those living outside the box and who by the sacred power of their otherness bring genius and beauty to the world.

  11. Actually.....I'm not that forgiving.

  12. You'd think there were no ugly gays and we are all into the arts. Otherwise, good job.

  13. Yeah, I'm a gay man and was STILL a bit shocked and offended that there's no mention of my gay sisters.

    So, the lord Sappho made a gay woman?

    I'm also surprised - knowing that gay women can get their ire up as well as any gay man - that there isn't a bit more angst about this from the gals, but then I have to remember the basic demographic of this site:

    white dudes.

    Or maybe they're just better at ignoring crap like this. :-)

  14. @Ian: Damn right! (So if I get my weight under 200#, can I get out of purgatory?)

  15. Great video, if there were gods.
    There aren't.
