"Now you have such a tough time getting I what you liked to explore sexuality remaking. You're not on this fucking you're like Diagram. I did because I grew up. Catholic sex mis the scariest and most interesting thing ever and being gay was even worse. So you know Butt fucking worse you know. It's a very he. I don't know what it's like for you guys. But you know I have a prostate which is supposed to a plus for that and for me it was like it became metaphor not only was tied to death but it was tied to a lack of control an invasion in Volterra ability. And all those things that were very scary for me outside of AIDS emotionally scary and then later when it was safer even then I was scared. Probably partly because my boyfriend had the biggest Dick and in the eastern seaboard. But it was like he was is my sweetie Developed Hedvig with and he passed away in two thousand and four Substance Abuse Problem But loved him very much and in some ways anthem oculus is migrate pulling with that with his death and with all the death in my life The way short bus was grappling with sex. You know my second film was extremely explicit with actors who were willing to go there for dramatic reasons not for porn reasons and it was a really good experience with people who I cast before I had a story because there were so few people who might want to go there that I just cast interesting people. I in through Improv. We created scripts of for the piece back. Then of course attention was more from a right wing Christian thing now. I don't know if I could make that film. Because e from the left there's more panic about sex in a way. That's you know in some ways very justified because it has to do with people dealing with with violation But then you sometimes get a inherent American puritanism in you know in in people who are considered liberal. I E how dare I you know I was making it now. How Dare I assist? White Male. Have an Asian woman had an orgasm in front of him. You know. There's sex equals expectation For some you know in the METOO era now which is which I support. You know the people who need to be stopped. There's sometimes a little bit of erotic phobia that comes into that as well. You Know Andrea Dworkin. All sexes violation. Which is a weird puritan thing too. So you get a Lotta young people scared about consent knows all those things and scared about real live interactions which are messy unlike masturbating to porn or doing something online so you get fewer and fewer people actually having sex you know the curves going way down in Corona Times of course is very little. It's interesting though. I wonder I mean I always think about consent and use. Yup You know because we're not fully developed Often when we've already begun some of us to have Saxon have sexual relations and there's so much wrapped up in in what what our bodies want. What what our minds want what we think could be other once Like do I say Yes to John Cameron Mitchell. Who's making this you know exploratory About sex or do I or do I not do. I mean like I feel I and certainly not a purist but I definitely In in this time also looking back on my use site I think about that a lot about how much is a young person. We what consent. What consent actually means. Because we don't really even know necessarily ourselves what we want. No and that's but also the idea of safe play and safe exploration is the key you know. It's not just the idea of being afraid of someone hurting your taking advantage of you. It's also being afraid of these things within yourself that you might love and you you. Can't you know people confused too? And if you know our generation we didn't have as much porn flying around so we kind of invented sex you know or we had i. Ideally someone who is a little bit more experienced. Who could gently in the misfit way in? Teach you stuff without taking advantage of you. Which is what happened to me. And you invent your own sex and there's something beautiful about two people who haven't starting it you know and that has been taken away harshly by porn because the images are so there that especially for young guys they try to imitate it. It's not just like that. They get you know they're Dick. Get Soft and you get nineteen year olds with you know with impotence problems which was never brabham before. But it's all in your head now you know and guys with good intentions. We end women having strong feelings and then thinking these strong feelings. Someone's GonNa get hurt here. I'm wanting it more than them at my repaying. Ma'am it's made Ashley you know. All of these things. Just stop people I think from having sex and they just end up just jerking offer to something. Say you know the or or simple you know. I think it's kind of crushing a natural flow of safety and play. You know that comes from you know a lot of images and stories about abuse that has real so i. It's for kids now which who seemed to not as much get into relationships you know until they're out of college even. I don't know if that's the case with your kids. You know the idea of the committed you know or friend a girlfriend. Or whatever is kind of passe. Mom Right it's like do you go about all your art from the same place. I moved around a lot as a kid. I was an Army Brat. A like Michael Stipe. You're like a lot of artists actually. So you don't really feel like you fit in and often end up with the freaks and whatever whoever they may be the might be donors they might be the drama kids. It might be the the army. Life was strange because he in one way it was good because it was the one functioning socialist state in the US socialist system. You know it's a social state for rednecks. They don't know what they got this. We could take an. We can take examples from them for our country. You know you get health health care housing you get you know you get your stuff that you do your job. Everybody was from somewhere else and it was not a big deal. Spy never understood small town bullshit. I never understood judgment from national origin or or anything because he was what you brought to the Party so the army was almost like York or La.

I think sister, Terry is onto something because she's absolutely right. You know. And you so beautifully said earlier in the podcast about queer people are people who can see the different levels of consciousness and beyond the facade, and you're right. The bible has beautiful metaphors that are very useful some of them, not some of them not, but it's for each person to find that unfortunately, most people don't look deeper than the surface because it would force them to deconstruct their belief system, which is the scariest thing on earth. Right. If one thing get when chink, you know brick comes out of the wall, it might they think of my crumble. Yeah. As opposed to become strengthen enough walls, right term. But, you know, we find inspiration in, in many ways, and most people are lazy, which doesn't mean they're bad people. Just life is hard and not lazy. But let's say don't have a lot of energy to question is Davos -ment, or our little shallow and gopher just, you know, the, the surface, and that's queer people to quit people with a certain amount of acceptance. There's a certain amount of complacency, and silliness and the price of fewer queer suicides. Unfortunately, is more queer Republicans because it starts to become about once you're, you're not persecuted. It's like, oh, I'm gonna make some money. And, you know, this, and you forget empathy.

There's gotta be. Complexity and we all know that in effect. We are gender of one. Yeah. You know, our culture is very by narking, based, and queer and straight people honor that too much. I'm a man, therefore this woman, therefore this, I'm even becoming a man, and therefore in this, and I'm going to become a woman, so I can be that, but you, but the wokers people are looking listening inside, the seems to their friends and realizing when empathy dies woke his over. Right. You know, it's got to be your own gender, ultimately, finding your own gender is finding yourself of a way of funny yourself and you know with, with Hedvig that was my window into the world, it, it, I found myself through drag. No, I found the real me, it was crushed under Catholocism, and militarism and even hetero. Normative kind of acting world. It was like you gotta be in the closet to work in that. Yeah. Well, first of all, I just want to go back to woke Lajos, which I just saw that revival on Broadway, which I call welcome. I love that. And then by narking by narc is a good word. I love I love a portmanteau anything mashed up I love. And then the one earlier was disaster. Because beijing. It disaster Bayshore and we all know we know procrastinated. Yes.

But we short. Workshop at west Beth? A lot of the Cavs space is gone, except Joe's pub used to be Fezzan west Beth, and right started at squeeze box. Oh my God. Started at squeeze that because I was watching the, you know, the great queens of the world and saying, maybe it can add something, you know, in, like learn, and, yeah, so I was watching Mr. for mica and Justin bond. And you and lady bunny who said rock, roll date for faggot. Kills hills with a Kate Bush, and everyone goes crazy. Yeah. And it was my the birthplace of Hedvig. Wow. That was in the nineties. Well, we. No, I didn't perform there. I was actually on. I had finished my downtown run by then by squeeze box from the time it was it was up at squeeze box to the time. It was the James hotel, how much time was that for years, four years as what, you know, the Broadway people tell you how long it takes to develop a musical, and we would do it at fez and palladium wherever we got a gig. Once we had a terrible gig is far island for the game mafia. Like the Geffen's in the in the Diller's Yaas black nurse. And they mostly turned away in horror realize. Drinks, the beach. And I'm singing Arja loved, like. So it felt like the movie, the unappreciated, you know, yes, arriver four years to get to the Jane west hotel. And then how long then the film was actually two year three years later two thousand one who green that the film, a Bob Shaye, who ran new line right at the time was doing Lord of the rings and he had directed me in a film called book of love in the eighties. It was just really kind to me and is interesting because back then they weren't a lot of queer characters, and in anything very commercial, and I was brought in for this film. And the character was really homophobic Lee written, like every other line was like some stupid yet, a file joke, joke and I said to his script, I said, you know, Bob, it's really homophobic and he was like, well, it's homoerotic. Well, you know, to but, you know, he didn't know why. 'cause you know no one had really brought those things up. And so they changed it numb and made him straight. Because they couldn't figure out how to make a positive gig doubt. But then ten years later, he saw me and Hedvig, and he and Mike DeLuca its new line said, we want to make this film, and we want you to direct, and I had never directed.

Bill. Buckley, brought these talking points together and send this is what it means to be. You have to not believe in global warming, Brian to be against abortion and queer rights, which are all very different things. Sure of the that, you know and Catholics have always been more socially liberal in terms of economics. You know, like new deal and health education and immigration pitchers of very pro immigration, and helping people who are seeking sanctuary and I was always moved by the statue of liberty as a symbol of America as opposed to USA won a war. It was was about the sanctuary of the freaks shirt. And granted we you know, we were invented by religious fanatics, and and concussed door.

Letting over the past to find something so I still have hope for America. There's a certain tone that I was fined running through your work, this some very very dark moments and anthem. Yeah. But yet through it all there's an optimum. Yeah. I think as responsible to present something or work that hard on something that doesn't have hope we have so much evidence that that things are tough. Sure that presenting that in a new way doesn't interest me, you know, it's like there's so much evidence of that. I also don't believe in dishonesty. So I think going into the dark to seek that pinpoint of of light. Even if it's just a pinpoint is is vital in Cambria hin that things aren't dark. I lost a brother at at four years old, which is why did rabbit hole. I mentioned it in the piece at them. And so death was always, you know, my handmaiden.

And you know, when I see something beautiful I feel in the world after it. I feel like I can see I can empathize better, and I can have more. Hope I feel the same way about film, even shitty film. It does something to just puts things in order for a minute. If it's dumb. It also can take you out of saying site. I remember once discovering the magic of the Robert Redford film legal eagles. It really serves a great purpose or any kind of middling romantic or comedy or Romney from the mid eighties. And I was wracked with something. And then I was at my parents place they were away and it was like four in the morning. I turned on HBO in that was like ten minutes in I'd seen it before. But only in the eighties twenty minutes in forgotten about whatever was going on. And I was like that's the key. Like just for some reason that like cement that for me. I was like something middling something had legal eagles, but a harebrained plot. And a performance artists. Played Daryl Hannah that helps meditation distraction. Yeah. But also, I like the ones that go places, you know, in those sure and and challenge a bit more as do I. But those are great to just floating in something. Yeah. And people seem to find the same meditative quality in murder mysteries. Kado shows that are about I'm pretty much half. The shows are about child's been killed. Through people..
