Description Can you go home again? What if you're a gay man and home is a state where voters keep electing a homophobe to the US Senate? In 1996, at age 30, native son Tim Kirkman returns to North Carolina to explore the parallels and differences between himself and Jesse Helms: they're from the same town and college, with media interests, from families blessed by adoptions, Baptists by upbringing. Tim puts his camera in front of his family, a boyhood pal, college friends, his pastor, Helms fans, community activists, novelists Lee Smith and Allan Gurganus, a mayor who's gay, and people in the street, including a brief interview with Matthew Shepard. What is it to judge, and what is it to love?

    Probably her most unusual hit of the lot  - aimed for the UK Christmas charts that year in 1989 I think! Nice and innocent little ditty though!

    This song came to me in the most unexpected moment. My mom passed away when I was an infant, so when I want to have some kind of contact with her I "visit" the street where she grew up and stop by her former home just to "be there". This always results in something abnormal happening. Last time (tonight) this is what happened. I was feeling down and wanted to hear from my mom. Five minutes after passing by her home I turned on my YouTube app to hear the presidential debate but couldn't get it and this song showed up at the top of my list. I'm a big Madonna fan and had never even heard it. My mom sent it to me when I needed to hear from her. I know I'm a dreamer, but it works for me. And my real name is Jessica so yes, even that part she got right. Thank you Madonna! amazing song and I know you lost your mom too, so the song has so much meaning. Oh Father is also one of my top ones because it also hits home in such a way. Love both. Madonna is a genius, absolutely love her work.
