    I’m bi and I have a question. Why the hell are there sooo many lgtq music videos, anthems and songs but only one bi song/anthem. And that song is really inappropriate

    Just for your enjoyment,

    Scene 1 (Red)- Eugene's childhood they act the as their parents do, seen in the imitations. The Mother and Dad both have and influence on them. Eugene as seen goes more with his Mom and sister.
    I'm guessing Eugene tried his mother's makeup and his Father didn't like that.

    Scene 2 (Orange)- Church. Ah yes, Church the thing that makes LGBTQIA+ members feel trashy.Back then, churches were not as open to LGBTQIA+ members as they are today. Eugene felt as if he was an outcast for liking boys, so he hides it away. He hears what they say in church about being gay. He feels very guilty now.

    Scene 3 (Yellow)- To distract himself from the fact that he was gay, he gets a girlfriend. Many gay people do this, as they think it'll turn them straight. It won't. Eugene feels guilty because he doesn't really love the woman. He goes off with a man. The woman doesn't like this she tries to get him back but she just can't.

    Scene 4 (Green)- Eugene finally finds a community where he is accepted for who he is. He gets into drag and stuff. He loves what he's doing and feels accepted for the first time in his life. This quickly ends as he is drifted away from his little community. His safety bubble, you could say.

    Scene 5 (Blue)- Discrimination. As you may now many people back then hated gays. Some people still do. It's horrible. Eugene in this case gets beat up and left alone. He's hurt and just wants to be accepted. His mother and brother accept him ans seen but his sister and father don't. This results in fights.

    Scene 6 (Purple/Indigo?)- Fights, again. Some people accept him and love him, others don't. There's problems with his community and with his sexuality. But finally Eugene learns to ingnore it and be himself. He loves himself. He's happy at last.

    Keep in mind this only what I saw this as to me. I'm sorry if any of this is wrong. Keep in mind, if you are gay or any part of the LGBTQIA+ society, your okay.
    Your perfect and all the crap people will say doesn't matter. You are you. If you haven't come out yet like me, it's okay. Take your time. If your family/friends don't accept you their wrong. You are perfect. Please don't end your life or think badly about yourself for being gay or harassed. If you feel bad, talk to someone. There will always be somebody, at least one person that will accept and love you. please consider donating to any LGBTQIA+ society as it helps a lot. If you aren't gay that's fine too. Just don't harass other people for not being like you. Try to help LGBTQIA+ people as they will appreciate it. Try to save at least one life. Thank you for reading this, have a nice day.
