In The Nature of Love, a teenage boy explains that he's always wanted a fairy tale wedding; he just doesn't know if he'll be the bride or the groom. A bisexual woman questions the honesty of anyone insisting they've never had a twinge of feeling for the same sex. Another woman describes her surprise when she came out to her grandmother, only to have her grandmother turn around and come out to her. Part of the collaborative video project I Can See Queerly Now from Common Weal Community Arts in Regina, this poignant short explores notions of sexuality, gender identity and desire. Ultimately, it points to the real power of love-a celebration of sharing yourself with another human being-regardless of how you choose to define yourself.
