Growing Up, Coming Out, and Learning to Speak the Language of Love: VIDEO


The process of coming out as gay and falling in love for the first time is explored in the new short film The Language of Love written by and starring 17-year-old Kim Ho, who developed it with Australian playwright Tommy Murphy and the Australian Theatre for Young People in Sydney.

Watch the touching film, AFTER THE JUMP...

Ho's film, directed by Laura Scrivano, began as a monologue called 'Transcendence' he wrote for a competition for The Voices Project.


A brief piece about the making of the film:

  6. Great short film! At first I thought it was odd that there was only one person talking, but then I realized that it is symbolic of the young man's loneliness when coming out.

  13. That was really lovely, and I appreciated the making-of clip.

    Am I the only one who thinks that young master Ho looks an awful lot like Joseph Gordon-Levitt?

  14. No you're not.

  15. That was really fantastic. I got choked up at one point because everything he said mirrored my own experiences from when I was that age. He's a brave kid and a really great writer/performer.

  17. I noticed the resemblance to Joseph Gordon-Levitt as well. Such a gifted young man! Thank you for this beautiful film.

  18. This is among the most beautiful things I have seen. The thoughts Kim puts across are uncannily similar to my feelings for my own best friend.

    Congratulations on a beautiful film!

  19. Brilliant. Bloody brilliant.

  20. I was just complaining in another post about the tired painful coming out stories in gay movies, but if they were all like this, they would be a pleasure to watch.

    This was so elegant.

  21. A beautiful soul with a beautiful mind and a beautiful voice.

  22. Beautiful. Hopefully we'll get to see more Kim Ho in the future.
