As a few of you know, I am atempting to write a play called "The Prayer." My drama teacher aproached me on friday asking me to submit a completed version of the play to a writing contest by Feburary 17, only I don't have it done yet!:eek: I was wondering if any of you all could give me a hand...
I need moments, or conversations, where you affirmed your sexuality, or where you met or realized you had same sex attractions, or even better, moments when you came out to your parents... what it was like, what was said, mental images of what you remember...
Also if you have any conversations with clergy men dealing with beliefs not revolving around homosexuality... so anything not gay related works well too.
I know these are most likely very personal instances, so you don't have to be completley descriptive, or you can pm me, if you are willing to share. Thanks a bunches!:love:

Personally I can't think of anything right now... but, you might be able to find some interesting information here.... https://www.soulforce.org/2007riders ... if you click on their names, they each have a short statement kind of telling why they are going on the Equality Ride. But if you don't have a lot of time to spare that might not be the best was of getting information... just an idea... :)
Good Luck Austin!!! This sounds like it'll be great! :love: :flower:

Well most o' ya'll know that I'm bisexual but came out first as lesbian. If you want a comedic script about getting your own orientation wrong, see below.
In my early 20s I sat my parents down at the kitchen table for The Conversation. It was anti-climactic. I expected drama. It went more like this:
After a long time of nervous small talk, trying to build up to the moment:
Z: Mom, Dad, I'm lesbian.
Mom: Oh. Are you sure?
Z: Yes. (Shhh! Leave the editorial comments for later, okay?!)
Mom: I knew it. I always knew you were. Well, I'm glad you're sure too now.
Dad: Nah. Nahhhhhh.
Z: What? Dad. I just told you.
Dad: Yahhhh I know, but, nah! Nahhhh!!! Yer gonna marry a man.
Z: Dad!! I just told you I'm a lesbian.
Dad: Ehhhhhh, you're not. You're gonna end up with a man. You're gonna get married. I feel it.
Z: You're wrong.
Dad: Nah, nah. You'll get married to a man, I just feel it.
Zerbie: 0, Dad: 1 :D
Or howzabout this for a lousy first date:
Zerbie meets cute young man and a dinner date is arranged. Over appetizers, the following conversation:
Date: I never felt comfortable around Mark, you remember him from (name of place where Zerbie and Date first met)? He always struck me as being, well. . . you know. . . one of those.
Zerbie: "Those?" Actors?
Date: No! You know what I mean!! One of those. . . (whispered) homosexuals.
Zerbie: Oh, you mean is Mark GAY?
Zerbie: Oh, well, I suppose if he is he'll come out eventually - he's such an open, sincere, and trusting person.
Date stiffens visibly. Makes a face like something smells bad.
Zerbie: I'm reading a book right now about a bisexual man and his struggles to come out.
Date (looks uncomfortable): How can you read about those disgusting people? Abominations!
Zerbie (brightly): I'm bi!
Silence. Zerbie and Date rush through appetizers, sit in awkward silence until dinner plates arrive, gobble dinner hastily, split the check and part ways.
