In Even The Color Blue, Johan confesses to his mother who he truly is and wishes to have her acceptance and support in telling his father.
JOHAN: I didn’t set out to be this way. I tried for so long to run away from myself. I’ve run all my life. Every damn day I’m haunted with the fact that I’m living a lie and I don’t want to hide anymore, I don’t want to hide from you, from dad…I don’t want to be this way but I have to be this way…there is no other way for me. I’ve tried everything else. This is me, Mom. I never wanted to hurt you or let you down or be less than the son you’ve always wanted. I know I’m probably not the son you’ve wanted and I’m sorry for that. I just want to be accepted for who I truly am, not for who everyone thinks I am. I just want you to know how I feel inside about this and how hard it’s been for me all these years…I’m not trying to hurt you and dad…I only want your acceptance.
