Description

Meet Johnny, an 18-year-old at an all-boys boarding school. He ambles through daily life, Britney in his ears, failing to fit into the school's (rather rigid) mould. But things get exciting. Enter Harry, a charming rugby lad. To save time, Johnny and Harry shag. Constantly. This isn't a coming out story, nor a gay tragedy, and it is not porn. It is life through the lens of a young queer man, navigating Grindr, hyper-masculinity and an institution that is rife with shame.
