Perry, if you feel this way, then I can’t do this with you.
Perry: When we met, I knew I was instantly taken by you. I still know it. What I didn’t know was the feelings this relationship would bring up in me. My whole life I passed as a straight guy. I’m masculine. I played football. I literally fought fire. So when I told people I was gay, it was hard, but I still started with a leg up because my family and friends were still able to see him as the same Perry: Perry with a deep voice, just with a guy on my arm. But now, I’m starting to feel that same anxiety that I felt when I came out. I don’t want people to look at me differently. I hate that I feel this way, but I had to be honest with you because I care about you so much.
Mo: Thank you for sharing your truth with me. It has been a journey to get to where I am today. Through all of the hate and shame and pain and guilt, I swam through all of that to get to the other side.
Perry: I know.
Mo: No, you don’t because if you did know, you would know that by the time I got to the other side I promised myself that I would never go back to that person. The person that couldn’t look themselves in the mirror because they were harboring all of the hate and laughs to their core. I will always have love for that person, but he’s gone.
Perry: I’m not asking you to bring him back.
Mo: Are you sure? Because it feels like you are.
Mo: Perry, if you feel this way, then I can’t do this with you.
