Graduating from High School should have felt liberating for Caleb, but taunted and tormented by former classmates, and fired from his job, he is thrust into a conservative world that can't accept him for who he is. After a tumultuous coming out to his parents, he is forced to leave his suburban home in search of acceptance in New York City, but discovers much more than he ever dreamed.
Amid a hedonistic, disco era wonderland of sex and drugs, Cal is welcomed into a vibrant West Village culture that is just coming into it's own after nearly a decade of social upheaval. But when calamity strikes his lover, Caleb decides that the only way to get the country's hypocritical leadership to truly understand the fear and desperation of his community, is to bring his tragedy to the halls of power.
BIOGRAPHY KD McQuain grew up in the Alphabet City neighborhood of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. He became involved in the Punk scene in the spring of 1985 and always kept a dog-eared paperback in the cargo pocket of his fatigues. KD graduated from the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts and received his BFA in sculpture. He worked in the neon industry for several years before starting his own record label, Skully Records, which became widely known for popularizing the Gothabilly genre. He now lives in Virginia with his wife, son and a menagerie of loving but continuously underfoot animals.
