Movie Quote of the Day – Parting Glances, 1986 (dir. Bill Sherwood)

Nick: Your parents know you’re gay?
Peter: Sure. Told ’em when I was 16.
Nick: 16?
Peter: Yep, had a boyfriend in high school. They freaked. You know the usual bullshit: “How could you choose this kind of lifestyle Peter?” I said, “Hey, guys, it chose me.” I mean, your dick knows what it likes. You reach puberty, you don’t fucking decide what sex you like. You ask your dick. You say, “Hey, dick, what do you like?” Okay. Alright. And you go for it.
Nick: And you said that to your parents?
Peter: In so many words.
