The two stories I've authored on thus far, WORKING IT OUT (completed) and BELOVED (in progress), can be classified as "growing up gay" works, I think. The protagonist(s) are outed or come out to family and friends, sometimes moving then from questionable support or lack of support for their orientation among significant others into strong commitments which permit them to mentor other gays. Religious affiliations of the heroes and their real or adoptive families are portrayed as supportive of gays, who often seek formal recognition and blessing of their relationships in the Church.
Cameron MacKenzie and Kevin Stolz had been best friends and almost brothers their entire life. When a series of bad things happens to their families, the boys find themselves getting closer than they ever considered before.
