The History of Us
Eighteen-year-old Bradley Collins came out a year ago and hasn't looked back since. Who cares if he doesn't know any other gay people? Bradley has friends and basketball -- that's all he needs. Even if that means always sitting on the sidelines when the guys go out looking for girls. When cute film-boy TJ tries to flirt with Bradley while his friends are doing their thing, he freaks. Yeah, he's gay, but he's never had the opportunity to go out with a boy before. He's never had to worry about how his friends will react to seeing him with a guy. Bradley accompanies TJ on a road trip to film TJ's senior project documentary. In each city they visit, they meet with people from different walks of life, and Bradley learns there's a whole lot more to being honest about himself than just coming out. He still has to figure out who he really is and learn to be okay with what he discovers.
