Gay Boy at first appears to be a stereotypical young gay man—highly sexed and sassy. But when his vulnerability surfaces after a one-night stand, truths of his past are revealed. In a candid storytelling style, JD Stewart mixes fact and fiction, frankness, and humor to offer an alternative perspective on how gay boys are viewed. Drawing on his time spent in South Korea, Stewart sheds light on a society the West knows little about, and illuminates an aspect of gay culture we only think we understand.
