Ellen Page 在情人節那天一個Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Time To THRIVE conference 中came out承認自己是同性戀。

如果你看過Ellen Page的come-out speech,再跟何韻詩的come-out speech比較,你就會知道何韻詩的delivery實在太「港式演唱會」了。

怎麼說呢?

Ellen Page的speech 有幾個特點:

1)有主題 - 她的speech不單單是為了承認/宣布自己是gay,她是強調保護gay的青少年,對抗欺凌歧視對他們的傷害。

2)她的speech不全是感人肺腑、悲天憫人、大仁大義,有笑位有自嘲。

I)“Now, I try not to read gossip as a rule. But the other day, a website ran an article with a picture of me wearing sweatpants on the way to the gym. And the writer asked, “Why does this petite beauty insist on dressing like a massive man?”

“ Because I like to be comfortable.”

II)“You can change that, and you are changing it. But you never needed me to tell you that, and that’s why this was a little bit weird.”

3) 她也會說,她願意come out是一為神功,二為弟子,有她自己自私的原因。

“I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility. I also do it selfishly, because I’m tired of hiding. And I’m tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered, and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of that pain.”

整個speech的結構起承轉合非常好。

何韻詩呢?為甚麼炯叔叔說她的delivery像「港式演唱會」?

1)先唱一 首《勞斯萊斯》做個prelude (歌當然是演唱會中的引子),

2)之後她就感性地道出對這個gay label怎麼被看待,怎麼面對傳媒,她作為公眾人物應該有的責任。。。(像不像演唱會中,歌手突然很感性說她/他從剛剛出道怎麼捱怎麼面對挫折之後努力打拼終於得到今天的認同,想感謝父母感謝一直支持他的人。。。),

3)最後到了「高潮位」大聲疾呼:「我 - 係 - 同 - 志!」(就像當年張國榮對住歌迷說 :「全-賴-有-你!」),

4)之後把黃耀明、慢必、Wyman。。。所有人叫出來closing(演唱會尾聲叫所有嘉賓上台群星大合唱??)

你們喜歡那一種 delivery approach?
