Celebrate National Coming Out Day with John Waters


We just came across a video of John Waters describing the moment he knew he was gay over on Boing Boing, and as today just happens to be National Coming Out Day, we thought that we’d share it with you. In the clip, the cult filmmaker also candidly describes his thoughts about the term “coming out,” wonders if gay people sometimes lose their sense of humor by being too politically correct (something he certainly can never be accused of),reveals that people have rarely asked him about his sexuality, and lets us know that gay is not enough — but it’s a good start. If we could all be as comfortable with ourselves as he is, the world would be a better, happier place. Watch John Waters being John Waters past the break.
