Rep: Michael is gay; Connor is gay; Gabriel is gay
Content Warnings: Homophobia; Description of AIDs and how it is effecting it’s victims
This came in a batch of three books dealing with AIDs, and 60’s/80’s time period. This is the second best of the three. Michael sounds like his age unlike Jonathan of Ziggy, Stardust and Me. Like A Love Story is still the best of the three.
Michael spends the book wondering if his brother Conner has AIDs while trying to deal with his crush on Gabriel. It gets tricker when Conner claims Gabriel is “well known”, causing Michael to dread Gabriel might be AIDs Positive.
I 100% rec this book. So often the Queer community of my gen and younger forget what it used to be like. They take the past forganted. So many believed once same-sex marriage was legalize country-wide, we could stop being activist, that we won and thats that.
