Blue Boy - An Indian American First Generation Gay Boy Comes Of Age

By Rakesh Satyal

Kiran is the only son of immigrants. He's a social outcast, among other Indian Americans and among the other sixth graders at his school in Cincinnati in the early 1990s.

He loves music, dance, playing with his mother's makeup, and is attracted to other boys. The things that make Kiran who he is also make him the star of his own personal freak show.

And then one fateful day, a revelation: perhaps his desires aren't too earthly, but too divine.

Maybe, he's a god.
