This is the final scene from one of my favorite movies - Angels in America - Tony Kushner's brilliant, relentless piece.
Here are the final words from that final scene on the eve of National Coming Out Day:
This disease will be the end of many of us, but not nearly all.
And the dead will be commemorated and we'll struggle on with the living and. . . . .
. . . . . .we are not going away.
We won't die secret deaths anymore.
The world only spins forward.
We will be citizens.
The time has come.
You are fabulous, each and every one.
And I bless you.
The Great Work begins.
