    do you know the title of the song that plays when the mother reads the diary of her son? I'd really appreciate some help :) it's a beautiful movie

    @blingerninja Ciao ! I thank you for that dear friend however, Bobbys' suicide did in fact occur, it will actually be 30yrs ago in 2013! I've personally shed far too many tears in that time, I'm done! I will hound, shame and denounce publicly anyone in authority over young people, who might in this 21st Century fail to sound the alarms if when a child under their care or tutelage, becomes "at risk" or in danger! It is truly profane, the regularity with which this is still taking place! Blaine

    @blainebill39 My heart and utmost sympathy go to you and Bobby, his mother and family as well. It's an absolute shame that the message came too late--that for some, it took Bobby's departure from this world to bring others to light. Much love to you and everyone who faces the same obstacles.

    @blingerninja Ciao Bello! You "Amico Mio" are just one in a multitude of evolved, empathetic, caring and ultimately sensible human beings! And because I am a "Theist" I thank G-D for it! It's about f**cking time, Bravo!!! At the the time that Bobby and I were "out" and seeing one another, demonization,slander, overall bigotry and quite frankly mass hysteria, were all the order of the day! You "Amico Mio" illustrate just how "Changed" the times truly have be become! Grazie Mille! Blaine

    @blainebill39 I've been lucky enough to have grown up inside a bubble where none of my role models ever turned their nose up at being gay. I honestly don't see what's so scandalous about homosexuality. A close friend of mine came out about 5 years ago. He seemed scared--I didn't care at all--but I didn't realize until later that his mother actually pushed him away after she found out. Must be a hard life, to worry about what others think of you when you know you're not doing anything wrong.

    @blingerninja Ciao ! Hey "Amico Mio" Bobby Griffiths' old boyhood lover/boyfriend here to tell you what truly amazes him about your honest and heartfelt comment! (Back to the First Person) Comments like yours have begun to define the "Mainstream" of decent, empathetic people in civil societies the world over! Immediately following Bobbs' suicide people in the States, and not to few would remark openly"Good riddance, and why don't you do us all favor and do the same"! Different Times! Blaine

    I started to make a joke about how funny the mother is in that movie (Conservative in an extremely cartoony way), but as I was typing, the trailer playing, I thought about how awful and frustrating it must be to live your life when those closest to you hammer in your head that you're sick, wrong, fucking up, etc. . . Every night, that dude laid in bed knowing his family was repulsed by who he was. I honestly can't imagine how sickening that must feel.

    @Hersa036 I'm glad you found solace in God but people find solace and comfort in anything, real or not: it's your own inner strenght you need to thank, not some imaginary friend.
  • Hersa036 2011-05-05 17:28:44
    @monkeywrench666 Religion isn't cancer! They who preach are the tumors... Those who believe what those preachers are telling are the cancer... I'm gay but I still believe in God and also that he's accepting everyone as he is... Why should something be a bad thing, that helped me so often to stay alive. so often to not give up?!

    I just watched this amazing movie, and i just can't stop crying!

    @carlyschroeder As Bobby Griffiths Lover/Boyfriend when I was a young man, I've placed numerous posts here, over the past year! Lately, I have been receiving some rather indignant PMs charging that my post were somehow for personal gain!
  • greenwood1987 2011-04-11 05:30:07
    I just saw it, really beautiful and incredible movie, I cried almost throughout the entire movie and I never cry during a movie. I believe it should be mandatory material for every human being. It should be shown at schools or in churches. So hopefully people think about the impact their words have on others and become more accepting and open minded.
