Band Fags! - A Gay Teen Book

By Frank Anthony Polito

It's the 1980s. In suburban Detroit, Jack is a straight "A" student. He plays trumpet and, along with his blazingly gay best friend Brad, is labeled a "Band Fag."

But Jack doesn't know what he is.

Through junior high and high school, their friendship evolves, devolves and gets more and more involved as Jack tries to figure out how he, just like Lionel Richie and Diana Ross sing endlessly on the radio, can finally find his very own "Endless Love."

Add your review of "Band Fags!" in comments!
