My desk has tons of little scraps of paper that have been building up over the years to make character references for what was going to be a novel. Because books are sort of slumpy on sales these days, those notes are now being driven into a screenplay. To promote my future film, I'm presenting the screenplay in serialized format over at The Awl.
The story takes place as a group of friends gather at an apartment on Fifth Avenue in the teens that just happens to have a balcony where they can watch the annual gay parade. There are sunglasses and mountain bikes, cupcakes and cocaine, STD's and lots more in a big snapshot hopefully capturing "What's Gay Now" in an inobvious way.
