boy

trouble

by mac brock
synopsis

Kay and Anthony have a lot in common. As two of the only gay kids in their town, their paths cross over years of casual encounters and missed connections - but some things only stay on the DL for so long. Boy Trouble is a cutting, playful, and surprising interrogation of toxic masculinity and casual sex in the days of Grindr.

Content warnings: Violence, graphic sexuality, strong coarse language.
