The fundamental image of life, of family, of childhood, of survival, is man and woman. Every story, every myth, every image reinforces that. Even the images of the real world reinforce that, because statistically heterosexuality is the norm. It’s the default. It’s the icon. Man/man or woman/woman disrupts a fundamental childhood image. Homophobia does seem to come from some gut instinct that’s beyond the religious or the physical act or whatever. It’s primal, and I think it’s from the pictures. It’s from what we see and what we’re shown. That’s why, in this gay lark, I stress visibility. Change the law, have education classes, do whatever you want, just be seen. I don’t just mean on Pride Marches, because they’re shoved away in an alcove, but I mean everywhere, all the time. I barely ever do an interview without mentioning being gay, and that’s deliberate. We have to become visible, especially to the young, as part of the norm, then the picture starts to develop and widen.
