    There are movies that are for entertainment. This movie is an answer to prayers not just of me but of millions. I feel that is not anybody's fault. Is the absence of education. Even a lot of us that we are born this way. Need to learn. Definitely this is going to educate and save people's lives. Thank you to everybody that had something to do with this movie. A movie that going to leave an important page in history for the world. 🙏❤🌎

    Gay = Sodomy = Pride? How about feculence?The anus is a exit point, not a entry point. (Biology 101)

      Larry Mick Being gay isn’t only about sex. It’s about feelings, relationships, and societies. AND, these people CAN’T choose their orientation, their attractions are literally caused by their unique brain chemistry (Also Biology). AND, not all men who have sex with other men practice anal penetration. Lots of them use other less intrusive methods to create sexual pleasure with their partners.
      We aren’t proud of practicing sodomy, (because some of us don’t and our sexual behaviors don’t dictate all aspects of our identities) we are proud of being who we are, we are proud of the way we were born and choose to live our love lives.

    If you notice the microphone shadow on the speakers neck it is a shadow of a "heart." I LOVE this movie! And by the way I happen to be a 62 year old woman who's cousin is gay plus a preschool teacher who have had students that are gay as well. Well done....I pray this movie helps everyone straight and gay!❤️❤️❤️❤️

    If you enjoy Gay, Coming of Age videos and stories, you’ll want to read Cameron DeCessna’s latest book, Clay Parker: Growing Up Gay in 1953. It’s the story of a fourteen-year-old boy confused by his feelings, thoughts and dreams as he reaches adolescence and finds his sexual interests are for other teenaged boys. But it's 1953, a time of conservatism and rigid family and moral values. To top off Clay's problems, he's an orphan forced to live with an abusive aunt and uncle who openly show their distaste for the lad who was severely burned when a house fire killed his mother, father and younger brother. They would be the last persons he could turn to, to help him cope with his alien feelings. This is the story of Clay's troubles, trials and final triumph as he strives to find a family who will love him after he is forced to run away from home after a severe beating by his drunken uncle. One part of the story deals with Clay's uncomfortable experiences listening to a sermon at his aunt and uncle's church. He discovers the real meaning behind the story of Sodom & Gamorrah and how it demonstrates the Bible's condemnation of being queer. The book contains graphic sexual descriptions that may not be suitable for children under 12, although it would be highly recommended reading for gay teens to raise their awareness of the struggles of adolescent gay boys in earlier times. Cameron DeCessna is a gay novelist best known for his Jordan Dare Trilogy, released in mid-summer of 2018 and available at Amazon Kindle Books. While the Jordan Dare series is written for all readers, 12 and up, and has no adult-only content, some of DeCessna's works are more suitable for adult readers. This novel, Clay Parker: Growing up Gay in 1953, is the first of several gay, coming-of-age stories the author plans to release in late 2018 and 2019. DeCessna, born in 1951, writes from personal experience and vividly captures the difficulties faced by gay adolescents during those times. Look for Cameron DeCessna’s books and visit his author’s page at Amazon/Kindle Publishing.

      These are independent movies, not commercial/pop corn movies... Which means that they're not done to get millions of people to buy tickets and watch them at the cinema. That's not that main objective here.

    I don't think a movie like this would ever be redundant simply because it represents such an important piece of LGBT history. Even if conversion therapy is all but gone, what it represents in our history will never be forgotten which is adversity. I get what he means though.

    Just skip to Troye's input at 21:54 - the rest is pretty unsatisfactory.
    We have Joel Edgerton to thank for the movie, but I find his input quite leaden.
    Read the book, enjoy the film and let the soundtrack uplift you.

    Troye, I've followed you since you started singing on RU-clip from your bedroom in Perth when you were still a kid, commented on your many clips as roman3773, especially on your coming out and then one day lamented that you had to let go being a RU-clipr to become a singer. I was so sincerely pleased when I saw that starting to happen. You're an angel. Don't ever let that change. A big hug from Ottawa, Canada.

    If you haven't yet crossed paths with Dimash from Kazakhstan, another angel:

    I have the same feeling about Troye Sivan as I had when I first ever became aware of The Beatles way back in 1960 (ish) when they first appeared on British TV on a local North West English TV channel. There was a feeling with me and the people I was with at the time that as we were listening to 'Love Me Do' we all felt a strong awareness that we were hearing something VERY special here and we instinctively knew that this band was going places. It just came over us a very strong feeling of excitement and anticipation for the future of that band!
    Well, I'm getting the same feeling here with Troye Sivan. I'm predicting major things happening in Troye's future career in all his talents of singing, acting, modelling and whatever other disciplines he decides to go for!

      @addiat meikokusuma
      I hope Nicole is indeed a double nominee she truly deserves it. I think Glenn Close or Lady Gaga may win for Best Actress and Regina King or Amy Adam's for Best Supporting Actress. We'll see!

    • addiat meikokusuma
      addiat meikokusuma 7 months ago +1

      @K. Eckardt yes..she maybe get double nomination for Boy Erased and Destroyer.. But she get higher chance to win in this.. I hate to say this but Lady Gaga is on fire with Star is Born.. Nicole is on another league for Destroyer. Her best acting to date. But Oscar tend to give to IT girl not necessarily the best in the year.. Remember J-Law, Sandra, Julia or Gwyneth? Sad but true..

    • K. Eckardt
      K. Eckardt 7 months ago +1

      She's gonna get nominated for and will probably win Best Actress for Destroyer, which comes out next month, it's supposed to be a whole other planet of acting for her. Who knows, maybe she'll get a Supporting Actress nod for this, I'm sure she'll be among the contenders.

    • mickeymouse2able
      mickeymouse2able 9 months ago +2

      But there's conversion therapy everywhere. If not in an institution, in every day life. When family members or friends don't ask if you have a boyfriend or how's your health or did you see the movie "Love, Simon" (just making conversation) they're pretty much telling you they don't want to talk about it or they wish you weren't that way.
      Or is it just me?
