Why Wake Up Gay?

Let's think back to 1998. Buffy the Vampire Slayer still had the gang in high school, going to the library every day. Xander was happy, Xander was witty, and, yes, in his own way, Xander was gay.

And what better way than to wake up one morning gay?

And so it began.


It plays on the various definitions on the word "gay," on people's concepts of people and their happiness. Were the characters already homosexual and just having a good day? Can a person just wake up gay one day? And if so, why the hell not?

It's about being goofy and happy and gay, in all the varying ways.

And how can you not?
