WATCH: When Did You Know You Were Straight?

For as long as we’ve been out of the closet, we’ve been asked that age-old question whether we were born this way. Finally, a camera crew consisting of Travis Nuckolls and Chris Baker reversed the question and put straight people on the spot. First they asked straight people if they thought gays and lesbians chose to be gay, then, the host asked the straight person when they chose to be straight? A seemingly easy question, the men and women in the video surprisingly couldn’t answer the question and the result is a fantastic look at the complex issue of sexuality.

It’s fascinating to see how much our rights may hinge on folks who have never really given any thought to what it means to be gay, or to be straight, for that matter. Enjoy!
