    Response to this comment:
    Gay Payment?

    I thought the visual was great, the actors were gorgeous and the impact was devastating. I would like to pose a few questions: Why do most gay movies have to include a wild, sex and drug-ridden characters, or brutality, AIDS punishment and death? Most of us, I dare say, are nothing like the characters in this movie, but all of us are being portrayed as irresponsible, crazed or out of control, and that is simply not true. I dont want to be typecast or generalized in that fashion, although I realize a minority are perhaps that way. What Im getting at is the negative damaging image going out via the movies or media to the straight, homophobic majority of Right-Wing Christians. We have plenty of GLBT heroes out there; why not make movies about them? If were ever going to gain equality and dignity, we need to see better and more responsible images of ourselves first and foremost. There are brave, diligent, loving and dedicated people in our group, so why not showcase them for a change? We are not about self-destruction, we are about great people who make life on earth more livable and rewarding.
