Watched Beautiful Thing earlier and it got the gears grinding:

When you’re young (or younger) and gay, there can be that feeling of complete isolation (or worse), and finally that other person shows up in your life, not the one you have the crush one or whatever, but the one you connect with and who connects with you, and they tell you how they feel and you’re finally able to do the same, and that sense of isolation is just gone, that connection becomes this bond that’s so unbreakable, and this strength comes out of nowhere that makes you feel like nothing could ever be wrong again. Not realistic in the slightest, I know, when all the other crap of life turns up, but that strength is rooted there now, and there’s no way you’d ever go back to the way you were before, regardless of whatever happens down the road.
