Scavenger Hunt #51 (06/30)
Task #28: Watch a movie about a member of the LGBTQ+ community fighting against homophobia, either institutional or intimate in scope.
Good news, lads. I started crying during the Goldfinch trailer and didn’t stop crying until Rocketman ended. This film brought me sorrow and so much joyjoyjoy.
Many years ago, I told my best friend that if the time came when I did actually kill myself that I would play “Rocket Man” to send me off. As a result, one scene in particular just shattered me. It took me awhile to shake it off, to be completely honest with you all.
I’m still standin’; Hey kids, shake it loose together; Turning back she just laughs, the boulevard is not that bad; Rolling like thunder under the covers; Oh, the bitch is back, stone cold sober, as a matter of fact; I miss the earth so much; etc,.
