About this submission

Homophobia is no new concept to cinema. I find popular contemporary depictions of conversion camp films extreme examples of modern queer life. And while these films most definitely have their place, I find I’m more interested in the mundane, which is, sadly, often a tale of internalized homophobia. Internalized homophobia manifests from the contradiction of identifying as queer while also being taught that queer is a sin. I Think Of You Often encapsulates the theme of internalized homophobia in the relationship between Aiden and Nora, but pushes past this to give this queer relationship the happy ending its audience deserves.
