One time, I watched an episode of Two and a Half Men with a gay character on it, and it changed my life. This presentation has nothing to do with Charlie Sheen, but everything to do with being stuck. It is okay to feel stuck. Growing up as a closeted gay teen, I felt a certain pressure from those around me to come to a conclusion about who I was, when I had no idea. I created this piece because I wanted everyone to know (including myself) that individuality cannot be contained in a word or a phrase. We are all individuals, and whatever that means to you is what matters. It looks at the coming out experience as a metaphorical traffic jam.
