Now that I have to be a boy again, how do I get out of missionary, no… military service ?
As my grandma says in the movie “don’t ever disavow, or make false claims. And never justify yourself.” It turns out, my heart… It turns out I fell in love with a woman. And, as a consequence, ma life is heterosexual. First, it doesn’t mean that my fantasies are 100% straight. I think that, as I said to my mum, it’s not a matter of pourcentages. Then, if it can reassure some hysterical machos, let’s say I’m bisexual. If they REALLY need to label me. If it can make them feel safe. I personally think… I think I’m rather lesbian actually. More than bisexual, but ok why not. You know what I mean? I don’t like the… In fact, some people… Mostly gays, said “yeah, like he’s… It’s a kind of compromise on normality” well, I’d like to know what’s normal for a start. And I think it’s a super macho way of thinking. Like, what? If you’re precious and like ballet and Opera, you’re necessarily homosexual? What the fuck? Like, you can only be straight if you’re a beast with bowlegs and a big voice? What the?
(about me, myself and mum) I never wanted to make the movie to talk about my life. I just think it’s a story about difference that is beautiful and funny at the same time and most of the time, nowadays, when we talk about difference, it’s really not funny. I think it’s important to be able to laugh at your own difference.
Q: is anyone clumsy here ? / GG: yeah. Blunderer. / Q: blunderer ? / GG: yeah it’s terrrible. / Q: what kind of blunder ?
GG: the worst kind. How’s your dad? He died yesterday. When is it due ? I’m not pregnant… The worst was, one time, I was asking about the kids and I said “how about the little Laurent? He must be all grown up” and they said “yeah… He’s 18 now” “18! I knew him he was…” and the moment I do that, I remember someone told me the kid was a dwarf. It was horrible so I said “… He was 5. ok… Good evening.”
I look at my mother and I understand everything. I understand that she's the one who's afraid.
