Tuna: A Grindr's Tale/ Not Your Average Hook-up Your average Brooklynite becomes too trusting (or cocky) and finds himself in a dangerously comedic gay hookup. AMA

Dwayne A. Daniels II
Sep 8, 2017

Alex, your seemingly average, gender- fluid Brooklynite does what any young, hot man does: hook-up with other hotties.

Due to society’s perception of what is taboo and concern to “correct” personal lifestyle choices, when does he actually know enough is enough? That ish is not taught in school.

Who is there for someone who has been shushed into not talking about their sex life?

Although Alex is open, there are a lot of LGBTQ members who are quieted, forced to conform to appear “normal” and shamed into hiding/suppressing who they truly are.

What does 'othering' mean?

Sep 8, 2:30PM EDT0

To view or treat (a person or group of people) as intrinsically different from and alien to oneself.

Sep 8, 3:09PM EDT0

Thank you for your answer! 

Sep 8, 8:02PM EDT0

How different do you feel your concept is compared to anything else out there right now?

Sep 8, 1:41PM EDT0

It deals with a serious issue in a serio-comedic way. Gay men on the DL are a disease in the gay communtiy and the fact that we continue to say it's okay is disgusting

I would never dream of publicly announcing my sexual preferences. Why do so many LBGTs feel the need to share this? I think most people don't care what somebody does in private, it's their personality that matters. What are your thoughts on this?

Sep 8, 10:03AM EDT0

Most people don't. But the people in power, Religion and Government, do. They have done terrible things to keep the secret that gay is ok. Since they want to sweep us under the rug we have to scream at the top of our lungs that we are still here.

Do you think there is more acceptance of LBGTs than there was a few years ago?

Sep 8, 6:39AM EDT0

Not so much. Yes the lgbt community has made great strides in recent years but I feel that was more so the fact that America has been trying to be very PC and people were afraid to speak their true feelings for fear of being singled out. The mindset hasn't completely changed yet.

Sep 8, 3:17PM EDT0

Do you think it will in years to come?

What do you feel the biggest benefits of Crowdfunding are?

Sep 8, 5:30AM EDT0

Other people paying for my projects :P

Sep 8, 3:17PM EDT0

Why do you think some people react abnormal when they find out someone is LBGT? Do you think it is because they are scared of the unknown or why?

Sep 8, 4:56AM EDT0

People are afraid of everything. Anything different scares us becase we don't know if it's going to harm us.
