Gregg Araki: The world of Nowhere is, in a way, typical of my worldview in the sense that both race and sexuality are, as far as issues go, very neutered. I mean, there's a utopian vision of the world as this place where sexuality is not really an issue, where characters are not really gay or straight or bisexual, they just sort of 'are'. And, in the same way, there are African-American characters and Asian-American characters and Latino characters, and they're all in this melting pot. There's not really an issue of 'I'm black and you're white and we're in this relationship, so how do we navigate our differences?'.
