"My feeling is that labels are for canned food....I am what I am...and I know what I am."-R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe

"The question of whether someone was "really" straight or "really" gay misrecognizes the nature of sexuality, which is fluid, not fixed, a narrative that changes over time. ...It reveals sexuality to be a process of growth, transformation, and surprise, not a stable and knowable state of being."- Marjorie Garber, "Vice Versa"

"Any attempt to restrict the natural expressions of love is a denial of the experience of freedom- and thus is a denial of the soul itself. For the soul IS freedom personified. God IS freedom, by definition - for God is limitless and without restriction of ANY kind. The soul is God, miniaturized. Therefore, the soul rebels at any imposition of limitation, and dies a new death each time it accepts boundaries from without."- Conversations With God, Book 3


LOVE WITHOUT LABELS is a documentary intended for worldwide television and educational distribution, in development by Toronto based producer/director:

BRUCE GLAWSON - CAREER PROFILE

Heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, gay, straight, lesbian, dyke, queer......are just a few of the plethora of labels we use to define, categorize, and to declare the sexual desire and identity of ourselves and of others. While these labels can be useful tools for self-discovery, self-acceptance, and pride of one's tribe, they also tend to confine and limit and to divide and separate, and foster a destructive "us versus them" mentality. To compensate, and in a sincere effort towards inclusiveness, the original slogan of "Gay Pride" for instance, has been recently transformed to the all-new-and-improved "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Pride". But isn't someone still forgotten in this equation?

And you can’t help but notice……. all around us people are choosing to express their sexual nature in ways that challenge our expectations. A downtown community centre in the heart of the gay village offers a workshop for "Dykes who do Guys". ….The star quarterback of your college football team leaves his drop-dead gorgeous wife of fourteen years for his best man……The leader of the local chapter of PFLAG, Parents & Friends of Lesbians & Gays, is aghast to discover that her "gay" son is now sleeping with women….or perhaps your younger sister eschews labels of straight, gay, or bi, and prefers to be known simply as a sexual being.

Such ever-increasing observations are extremely disturbing to many of us and are viewed as symptomatic of an immoral and decaying society, and of promoting the further breakdown of the holy institution of marriage. Parents are alarmed by the influence of a pervasive homoerotic culture on our children. Bisexual men are perceived as the purveyors of AIDS into our straight community. Gays & lesbians feel betrayed by members of their tribe who stray into a world of heterosexual privilege. Quick are we to accuse and to judge the woman, who enjoys sexual relationships with men & women, as being confused, greedy, and irresponsible….while simultaneously suppressing our attraction, fascination, and perhaps……dare I say it….our envy. She's having her cake, and eating it, too!
