Plot Summary

Coming-of-age. A small-town young man realizes why he's such a misfit - he's gay! Adolescence is proving a pain for the always-thinking Dorian. He's an outcast and the butt of classmates' fag jokes at high school. He's different and understands why when he reaches the conclusion that he's a "stereotypical gay." He soon announces this discovery to his homophobic, Nixon-loving dad. As Dad throws him out of the house, Dorian's off to NYU to encounter a new world of coffee houses, sophisticates and handsome men. Written by Anonymous

Quotes Dorian Lagatos: [voice-over narration] You know the one worst thing my father ever did to me? He convinced me it matters what people think of you. And the truth is, they never think quite enough. So from then I started living my life no matter what they thought. Even when they thought I was crazy and should take my liberal views and my pink shirt and move to another planet, I just had to laugh 'cause it's not pink, it's fuscia!
