More > also escaped a stay at New Horizons for Daily Living, a religious camp that tried to make him straight. Now, after graduating high school, he's ready to take on the world. This time, hopefully on his own terms.
Meanwhile, his Russian born boyfriend Mishka is working hard in his studies. He also is having trouble adjusting to living a normal life. How much more challenging will it be if Kalki goes on tour and leaves for long-distance adventures?
