''Like all good Catholic boys I care what Jesus thinks. Jesus - both the man and the faith. Following him makes me happy. There's just one issue... I think I'm gay. Well, it's hard to be sure while going to an all-boys school. It could be a matter of simply liking what I know, and really, oh so very much liking what I see all day - guys. Being gay and Catholic can't possible work together. Can it?''
''Coming Out Catholic'' follows a year in the life of a private Catholic school student as he comes to terms with his sexuality and the dreaded loss of his faith. Armed with sarcasm and his best friend Mark, he prepares to take on the school thug and the awkward social encounters plaguing his late teenage years.
