About one person in 20

of both sexes is homosexual.

On any busy street,

you pass half a dozen every five minutes,

because, contrary to popular opinion,

most of them

don't look any different from anyone else.

People can only tell the obvious ones,

but they are a tiny minority.

J" For TC and his Honeybear

J" The world will not stop moving

J" For rendezvous and longing stares

J" And hearts that won't stop burning

J" Before that Honeybear had given up

J" He felt so sad and lonely

J" Then one night he looked up and he saw

J" He saw his one and only

J" When TC came onto the scene

J" He entered in on golden wings

J" And with him he brought butterflies

J" Of crimson red and emerald green

J" 'Cause before TC, Honeybear was waiting

J" Was waiting for him patiently

J" TC took his fear away

J" Became his one and only J"


Homosexuals usually live two lives,

one of which is completely concealed

from their family and colleagues.

- No one knows, no.

- (Reporter) How would they react?

They'd be tremendously shocked.

The reason is that

I live a very normal life back home

and I really live two lives.

One here and one up North.

(Reporter) It is estimated

one man in 20 is a homosexual.

These men are a minority.

They receive minority treatment,

face prejudice and intolerance,

stand accused of depravity and vice.

Whereas male homosexuality

is a crime in Britain,

female homosexuality is perfectly legal.

Lesbians can be open about it.

(Reporter 2)

Yet, for women who love women,

unqualified acceptance by our society

still does not exist.

So lesbians receive

the minority treatment:

intolerance, suspicion,

and often disgust.

(Reporter) In the heterosexual world,

the homosexual

disturbs conformist values,

is shunned and perhaps misunderstood.

Most homosexuals

must lead a secret, dark existence.

J" The world came crashing down on them

J" With all of its ferocity

J" And Honeybear was terrified

J" He said, "Do not take him, take me."

J" Before that, Honeybear had given up

J" He felt so sad and lonely"

I'll soon be back.

Don't leave me here alone.

Where are you going?

J" Then one night he looked up and he saw

J" He saw his one and only

J" And he said, "Please don't take him

J" 'Cause I love him.

J" He's my joy and my life."

J" For my love, I won't hesitate

J" I will give him

All that his heart can take

J" And I'll trust him fearlessly

J" I want him to be free"

(Reporter) Among the ancient Greeks,

it was normal practice.

Socrates and Plato,

the two greatest of philosophers,

were both homosexual.

So was Alexander the Great.

Julius Caesar:
every woman's

man and every man's woman.

Many of the kings of England

were homosexual.

William Rufus, for instance,

and Edward ll,

who was the most notorious example.

Perhaps the two greatest artists

of all time were homosexual:

Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.

At home, romantic poets

like Shelley and Byron.

The biggest scandal

surrounding a British homosexual

blew up around Oscar Wilde.

(Oscar Wilde) "The love that

dare not speak its name in this country.

In such a great affection

of an elder for a younger man,

as there was between David and Jonathan,

such as Plato made

the very basis of his philosophy,

and such as you will find in the sonnets

of Michelangelo and Shakespeare.

It is that deep spiritual affectation

which is as pure as it is perfect.

It is in this century so misunderstood

that it may be described

as the love that dare not speak its name,

and on account of it,

I am placed where I am now.

It is beautiful. It is fine.
