Your First Big Heart-Test

Description

A 22-year old guy in the throes of his first, passionate love while navigating his foray into gay adult life. Set in late-90s San Diego, this young guy discovers love is not all it’s cracked up to be, especially when dating a slightly-closeted guy. When he gets his heart tested, he is forced to confront his issues, and in so doing, grow from this devastating heartbreak. With themes of friends, family dynamics, young love, and the other side of coming of age, the story explores an important question: once you’re an adult, how do you pull this queer adult life off? Told through second person, present tense, the story explores the drama in this wonderful moment, when the queer community was just coming through the AIDS crisis and before so many queer spaces became obsolete.
