What is it like to be “out” in high school today? Is homophobia still rampant, or have things changed? How do the reactions of students, teachers, administrators, and families affect the out gay student?

A Vigil for Joe Rose is a collection of stories told with empathy and humour about the experience of being out in high school. As a unified collection, these eight short stories and a novella chart the journey of the main characters from first coming out to their growth into confident young gay men, and the challenges, triumphs, and losses along the way.

A unique insider’s look told from the point-of-view of teens in high school.


Available from Amazon, Chapters.Indigo.ca, and Barnes & Noble, as well as local booksellers worldwide.
