Engel's been hanging out with straight groups since he realized that having friends is important in life. His entire life, he's only had 1 friend who is like him. And he doesn't get to talk to him very much anymore.
He's tried reaching out to other people like him, but then he finds out that the people that he meets have a different agenda than the sincerity that he's looking for. And with the others that he meets, they'd rather find people who's like them. Hot. Shallow.
So he goes back to his straight friends. Who's starting to have families now. Alot of them knows about the real Engel. And they accept him. And he's grateful for that. But then again, whenever he's with them, he still can't be him. He still has to follow the straight path.
He knows he needs to meet more people like him. He needs to hang out with people where he could be himself. He knows sometimes he has to veer away from the straight path. He might know himself better that way.
The straight path. Not that there's anything wrong with it. It just doesn't seem all right.
