JOE I didn't know this door locked I'm not a nerd I don't know every janitors room in the school by heart and which ones lock and don't lock. KHAMBREL Why... JOE Why what? KHAMBREL Why did you hit me I never did anything to you. JOE Because... I don't know because your gay! KHAMBREL Just because I'm gay doesn't mean I don't have feelings just because I'm gay doesn't mean I'm not a person Joe you and every other freaking person in this school has looked at me like I was diseased did you ever stop to think that even though you beat up some gay kid that the gay kid actually has feelings or every time you call a gay kid a name like fag or queer that you kill them on the inside you are the reason why people commit suicide Joe you are the reason teens are scared to go outside anymore and be themselves because they are too concerned about what the general media will say about them. You think the gay population is contaminating the world its really your kind Joe the shallow, feelingless, heartless, shallow person who is always running for money, popularity, and girls who you get a new one every week. You Joe are contaminating the public not gays. (THERE IS DEAD SILENCE AFTER KHAMBREL GIVES HIS SPEECH AND JOE HAS HIS HEAD DOWN AND IS UPSET.) JOE ... I never thought about it like that. KHAMBREL That is your problem Joe you never stop to think ever since we were best friends back in like 6th grade you never stop to think about me and you, it was always you in the lime light. JOE ... I'm sorry I never once thought that out I guess I mean I didn't know... (JOE BREAKS DOWN AND HIS EYES FILL UP WITH WATER.) CROSS FADE: INT. JANITORS CLOSET - MOMENTS LATER (KHAMBREL AND JOE ARE NOW BACK TO BACK SITTING TALKING ENJOYING EACH OTHERS COMPANY.) JOE So... Why are you gay? KHAMBREL Because it is part of who I am I didn't choose to be gay I mean just because a lot of people don't choose that path doesn't mean its the wrong one. JOE I don't get it. KHAMBREL Okay put it like this some people cant accept it..they say things like "they made Adam and eve, not Adam and Steve!" But you know...maybe Steve has a better personality then eve......I think its selfish to like people for their body parts....you should fall in love with someone because they have a good personality, nice, kind, sweet, etc..... whether they be the same sex or not.. I just happened to find that my boy friend has all the personality so it makes me unique or as you call it gay but I'm happy though and nobody can take that from me. JOE So it should be about falling in love no matter what sex it is just as long as it makes you happy? KHAMBREL Yeah... Pretty much JOE Wow never thought about it like that. KHAMBREL Yeah.... (THERE IS BRIEF MOMENT OF SILENCE AND JOE TURNS AROUND AND LOOKS AT KHAMBREL AND KISSES HIM AND KHAMBREL KISSES BACK WHEN THE DOOR SUDDENLY FLIES OPEN AND THE JANITOR IS STANDING IN THE DOOR WAY.)

FADE OUT: FADE IN: EXT. JOE'S HOUSE - AFTERNOON (JOE IS SITTING OUTSIDE THINKING ABOUT HIS LIFE WHEN KHAMBREL COMES WALKING UP.) KHAMBREL Hey... JOE Hey... about the other day I was thinking I wanna be straight up... KHAMBREL I'm sorry I shouldn't have kissed you it was wrong. JOE No... its not that, Its just that you told me I should be with someone because of they're personality and not because of things people run after and I think I have feelings for you and I feel this thing I have never felt before I feel truly happy.
