Aaron Garrett is many things in life: he is a son, a friend, a student, and caring boyfriend to his lovely girlfriend Leigh Ann. In these roles, he is kind, hardworking, smart, loving, dedicated, and considerate. At Jefferson High School, he is a leader, a football star, and well-respected by his peers. Aaron’s life is perfectly on track, he is pursuing a college scholarship and hopeful for the future, except for just one thing: Aaron Garrett is gay. When a former child star from Aaron’s small Southern town saturates the national media after making homophobic comments, Aaron’s life is turned upside down as supporters rally around the sentiments. Social media attention begins to swell nationally and locally until it begins to eat away at every part of Aaron’s existence.
After school, Aaron entered the locker room and dressed for football practice amongst his teammates. Jason was already there, ready for practice. He was the quarterback and a remarkable one at that. Aaron sat on the locker-room bench lacing up his cleats.
“I tried to find you at lunch,” Jason said.
“I was going to come down, but Leigh Ann had to work on some stuff for art class, so I just ate with her while she was finishing up.”
“That’s cool. I’m hanging out with Amy Lawrence tonight. You and Leigh Ann wanna come double date?”
“Can’t tonight. I told Leigh I’d go to church with her for a Bible study.”
Jason laughed. “You’re right—it’s probably better if you don’t come.” Jason began thrusting his groin back and forth. “You know Amy loves big Jay!”
“You’re probably right . . . I think we’ll sit this one out.” Aaron couldn’t help but find Jason’s behavior laughable. “Hey, I thought I saw you on the commercial for the upcoming season of 16 and Pregnant. Congrats, buddy.” Aaron and Jason laughed.
“Don’t worry, brother, I always wrap it before I tap it. You’re just jealous. Too bad Leigh Ann’s so uptight. You must be dying!” Jason said jokingly.
“Man . . . don’t talk about her like that, Jason,” Aaron’s face grew stern.
