I’m making a documentary about cheating. Here’s my story;
The Beginning of Summer 2014
My flight lands from LA. I can't wait to get home and see my boyfriend.
I get home, and about 20 minutes go by, and there’s a knock at the door. It’s him. Finally he’s here - I’ve been dreaming of this moment for days.
“I’ve been seeing other people” he says.
How do you take something terrible, and make it better? You embrace it! The story above is just a glimpse into how my relationship of 3 1/2 years ended. Turns out, the Ex cheated on me multiple times.
After speaking to a few gay friends of mine, I discovered that my situation was common! Gay men have the stereotype of sleeping around. I didn't really have an understanding of this because I've been removed from gay culture of so long.
In a book called Sex in America: A Definitive Survey, the authors cite a study about infidelity among homosexual couples. The couples interviewed had been together for between 1 and 37 years. All of them experienced infidelity within the first 5 years of their relationship.
There seems to be an underlying tone in gay culture that promiscuity is key to eternal satisfaction. Heck, even I get the itch every once in a while to just run around and throw the hottest guy I see onto my bed and do unspeakable things. But I don't....it's a quick fix, and I'm just not into that. But if you are, good on ya! To each their own!
If you've ever cheated, that's totally cool. I'm not trying to say cheating is bad, I just want to understand more about it.
This film exists because I feel like as a single gay man, I'm looked down upon because single gay men have the reputation of sleeping around. I'd like to explore gay culture and understand why this reputation exists.
My mother is a brilliant woman. She also happens to be a psychotherapist. She was telling me about the emotional repercussions of being involved in "serial relationships". This is when you consistently date, without taking time to be alone. This could be a part of why gay guys love dating around; an insecurity....that being alone is a bad thing.
It'll all be in the film. But, I need your help.
In order to make this super-interesting, über cool film, I need to have the necessary resources;
- Professional Cameras ($3000+)
- Audio ($1500)
- Lighting ($1500)
- Travel ($2000)
- Website ($500)
- Awesome person to help me organize everything ($1500-$3000)
I also have to be able to fly around. That way, I can put the best people in the film. Trust me, you'll love it!
