A young, homosexual boy suffers through the cruel taunting and ostracization of his peers. Rejection from the church, parental expectations and machismo hetero paradigms caused him to reinvent himself and pretend to be someone he wasn't. Told through a cohesive chronology of poems, prose, screenplays, and memoirs, this book tackles abuse, degradation, and the beautiful triumph of discovering self-love.
