EGood Gays: Watch This AMAZING/EMOTIONAL “I Want To Know What It’s Like” Video Short

“I Want To Know What It’s Like” is an emotional tribute to LGBTQ community in poetic, video form. In promotion with “Second Class Citizens” (a forthcoming documentary — also by director Ryan James Yezak — that covers discrimination in the LGBTQ community when it comes to marriage, adoption and other legal issues), the video captures confession-like subjects reciting a poem about yearning to know what it’s like to be “normal.” If your eyes don’t well up from this sharp/thoughtful/provocative narrative, well, we just don’t know what will make you heart melt.

The “Second Class Citizens” documentary reached its Kickstarter goal, but is always looking for supporters. Here’s a word about the project by the director:

“The idea for this documentary was born when I first learned that California’s Proposition 8 had passed, defining marriage only between a man & woman in that state. I was angry & I wanted to do something about it. As time went by, I learned more & more about the inequalities that exist for gays, lesbians, & bisexuals in this country. I made a friend on YouTube who revealed to me that he would be expelled from his school if they found out he was gay. I did not believe him – in what kind of reality could something like that be true? It is true.¬†Shortly after that, a string of natural disasters¬†occurred¬†& my boss asked me if I wanted to donate blood with her. I immediately got up to go with her & then stopped abruptly realizing that I couldn’t donate blood. She did not believe me, nor did she understand why. I felt like a different species. I did not feel one with the human race in that moment. That was the moment it had a direct effect on me & my rights – that is when I decided to make this documentary.”
