Tonight I bring you a beautiful short film written and starring Kim Ho, 'The Language of Love'. I first discovered this jewel via my friend J.D. Doyle, founder and curator of Queer Music Heritage. There is something so sweet, so honest, and so familiar to the story, I can't stop watching it. It details the rough terrain of young love, and how trying to navigate it while figuring out you are gay in a straight world doesn't make it easier. But somehow, in the end, we must all learn how to speak the language that is honest and true to ourselves. Enjoy 'The Language of Love'.
