BRUNO is Brilliant!

I saw BRUNO the film this evening. Sacha Baron Cohen is brilliant! The film gets off to a quick start, and once the laughs start, they just keep on coming! GLAAD has criticized the film, stating that it "reinforces negative stereotypes" and "decreases the public's comfort with gay people." Boy, did they get it WRONG! Universal Pictures, on the other hand, got it RIGHT and maintains that "Bruno" is a satire that "uses provocative comedy to powerfully shed light on the absurdity of many kinds of intolerance and ignorance, including homophobia."

Gay people should not be afraid to appear or act differently than straight people, period. BRUNO clearly presents an extreme, provocative example, but it also serves to remind us that there's room for everyone.

WE'RE HERE, WE'RE QUEER! F*&KING GET USED TO IT!

I LOVE BRUNO!
