In 1993 or ’94 in Minneapolis, I performed in a play called “Untold Decades” written by Robert Patrick. It was the first time I played a gay character and also during the time of my life when I was “coming out” to family and friends. Robert Patrick was one of the pioneers of openly gay play-wrighting, and at the time, his play felt monumental. Today, at the CMG Film Festival, my short film screened. Afterwards, the Q&A was moderated by Robert Patrick. I admit I felt giddy, being asked questions about my creative project, by the man who’s writings shaped me during a very influential and evolutionary period of my life. I had the feeling of something coming full circle, or perhaps, just a return to the feeling of something meaningful and intentional. Maybe, the feeling of being on the correct path.
