Synopsis >

Set in 1984 in Sandusky, Ohio, this popular comedy follows the coming-out of a naive 17-year old teenager at exactly the moment when gender-bending pop stars like Boy George of Culture Club and Annie Lennox of Eurythmics were flaunting androgynous images. As the youth goes through his first rites of gay passage, after being callously used by the slightly older boy who brings him out, he tries to retreat to heterosexuality with his closest female friend. He emerges as a poignant gay everyman.
