True to You
by Tony Correia
After a fight at school leaves him expelled, Jorge Gomez starts training to become a pro wrestler and finds that he has the talent to make it a promising career. At his first wrestling show, he meets Thom, who is from a politically active upper middle-class family — and opposites attract. Before he knows it, Jorge has his first boyfriend. But he soon finds himself up against the ropes when he adopts a flamboyantly gay "bad guy" wrestling persona, and Thom accuses him of promoting homophobia. Jorge has to find a way to be true to himself as a successful gay athlete to save his career and his relationship.
