“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Saturday Morning Coffee Break: Different

What if things were a little "Different" and instead of gays being discriminated against, it were straight people - In our churches, schools, and our daily lives?
Justin has a secret crush on Joanne, a girl he wants to invite to the prom; Unbeknownst to him, she already has a date with another girl from school (a cover).  Meanwhile the quarterback of the football team, Bobby, thinks Justin is playing hard to get.  But the fact is, Justin is straight and in the closet.  Later, things start to get ugly when Justin gets caught sneaking a kiss from Joanne.

Today's Saturday Morning Coffee Break was the winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Student Film at the Rhode Island International Film Festival in 2004.  While I usually find myself saying to "enjoy" today's feature - not so sure about this one, but it's one that makes you look at things a little bit "Differently".
If you wish to look back at some previous issues, click my logo below and enjoy.   
Make sure to check out Saturday Morning Coffee Break every Saturday for another classic or current gay short film.

I read somewhere that they were going to make a movie like this soon. I knew we already saw one, but I think it was going to be on a bigger budget with a well known studio and actors.
