I came to the conclusion today that my school needs to do a play about teen homoselxuality. You know, gay awareness. We just recently had a play about awareness of domestic violence, and i thought, why not do something like that for hoosexuality?
I was originally thinking of basing it on Julie anne Peters' Keeping You a Secret, but when I started writing an email to her asking for permission to use her story, I thought, why not be more original and creative, and create your own story?
So I will. I'll write the play, and direct it, and have the drama department head help me by editing the script, and help with casting, and well, whatever else. I've never written and directed a play before. I've never even taken a drama course. But I learned recently i English, that I have a knack for both writing and acting. Not that I want to act in this play.
Anyway. I'm really stoked about this idea. I can't wait to talk to my teacher about it and get started on the script. my school isn't very homophobic, but there's never any effort put into education people about it. I mean, you'd think there would be by now. Homosexuality isn't going to go away, and people need to learn to accept that, whether they are straight or not.
