Dorian Blues

Synopsis: Coming-of-age. A small-town young man realizes why he's such a misfit - he's gay! Adolescence is proving a pain for the always-thinking Dorian. He's an outcast and the butt of classmates' fag jokes at high school. He's different and understands why when he reaches the conclusion that he's a "stereotypical gay." He soon announces this discovery to his homophobic, Nixon-loving dad. As Dad throws him out of the house, Dorian's off to NYU to encounter a new world of coffee houses, sophisticates and handsome men.

of J FK on your wall?

A lot of reasons.

- You thought JFK was great.

- Right.

Well then, your criterion for

greatness can't be honesty...

...otherwise by your own

admission you'd be a hypocrite.

I'm not a hypocrite.

No, no.

I, I know.

That's what I'm struggling with,

because without you being...

...a hypocrite your

argument makes no sense.

Kennedy wasn't a

paranoid schizophrenic.

Oh, N ixon is a paranoid


I think so.

- So this is an expert opinion.

- Expert?

Well, yeah.

I mean that's a rather

sophisticated psychological term;

...paranoid schizophrenic.

So I was wondering if, if you

have any experience in the field.

A psychiatric degree that

qualifies you to make...

...such a conclusive diagnosis

on a man you've never met.


Maybe you think because you

have a few emotional problems...

...of your own it makes you sort

of an honorary doctor of the stuff.

Discussion over.

Potatoes please.

You know, I will give you one

piece of advice via another...

...great American president;

Abraham Lincoln...

...who said:
"I would rather sit

quietly and have them think...

I have nothing intelligent to

say rather than open my mouth...

...and remove all doubt.

I got shot down,

but it was worth it...

'cause it jarred something.

Later that night,

I had an epiphany:

For the first time in my life,

I realized I was gay.

Not just confused, or going

through a phase but actually gay.

That night I came out

of the closet to myself.

But this only

made things worse.

I was anxiety-ridden

out of my mind.

I needed to talk to someone.

But there was no one in

my family I could go to.

I didn't have any

friends in high school.

High school.

Finally in my desperation

I ended up downtown... social services where I met
