Overview
-

Ben Brennan, is 17, gay, and lives in a working-class suburb of Dublin with his mum, his Jamaican stepdad, and his younger half-sister, Jamie. Romantic but a little naïve, Ben meets Peter online. Changing how he behaves to suit Peter, he soon finds himself at odds with Soda, an older, flamboyant drag queen, who regularly sneaks Ben and his best friend Chelsea into Pantibar, the local gay bar where Soda performs.

It’s a tough environment in which to learn who your friends really are, with the mixed messages of homophobia, Grindr and teenage hormones playing on his mind. Can Ben navigate the pitfalls of modern gay dating, with all its highly sexualised expectations, and be true to himself?
