In his “I’m From Driftwood” interview Dustin Lance Black basically gives his gay superhero origin story. He came out in absolutely the most faggy and dramatic way possible: After forcing his gay best friend out of the closet, he wrote a manuscript in his poetry class basically blaming his best friend for not noticing he was also gay. He then left the script in their shitter and wrote “I AM GAY” in soap on the bathroom mirror before going to class for the day. Is it any surprise this dramatic young queen eventually went on to write an award-winning dramatic screenplay for MILK? No. No it is not.
