I can't imagine a more fulfilling thing for a writer than that you've made a strong impact on the lives of other people. Just because I've heard it before does not mean I don't want to hear it one more time.
I think that instinct, that storytelling instinct, rescued me most of my life.
I know that when Terry and I were together, 10 years ago, he did not appreciate it when people would ask him what it is like being partnered with a celebrity. Precisely because it suggested that he had no value.
The world changes in direct proportion to the number of people willing to be honest about their lives.
There was a time when you could catch every new gay thing that came along - now we just have to pick and choose. What a wonderful luxury to have.
I've always drawn on bits and pieces of my own life.
I believe very firmly that gay people of every stripe and age should be role models for all children, and that means interacting with them.
But I love to travel with my partner, reading, sitting in the garden, smoking dope, and going to movies. Not necessarily in that order.
But I will say that the drugs are much more ferocious then they used to be. There are people wrecking their lives with addiction, which seems much more severe.
For the most part, I have a very manageable celebrity. People recognize me from time to time, and they usually say very appreciative things. It affords me a great deal of pleasure.
Well, Terry and I broke up 10 years ago. So the healing that was going to happen, happened. So mostly this was a stroll down memory lane.
It may interest you to know that my breakup with Terry and this mystery did not happen concurrently in real life. That is a writer's device, which places Gabriel under even greater pressure when the mystery begins to reveal itself.
Too much of a good thing is wonderful.
I tend to prefer the shelter of fiction.
The film itself involves a New York City radio storyteller, Gabriel Noone, who strikes up a friendship with one of his fans, an abused 14-year-old teenager who is suffering from AIDS, who does not have much longer to live.
