When I was in college we used to do “Guess the Straight Person” panels. It was a learning exercise created to break down stereotypes in the gay community. The basic concept is you have a mix of gay and straight people and the audience must guess based on asking questions and physical appearance. One of the best questions I was ever asked was “What’s your theme song?” It’s a really good question. Music has always been extremely important to me. When I am feeling depressed nothing turns things around like an upbeat Madonna dance mix. Conversely, Pink’s song “Glitter in the Air” once caused me to have an emotional break down while driving home. It still stirs emotions when I hear it. My personal theme song is still the same song I answered the question with 8 years ago. “Video” by India Arie.
