Love Drugged

James Klise, September 2010. ┬áJamie knows he’s gay, and part of him wants to embrace it, but when he sees all the homophobia happening in the world – and at his school – he doesn’t want to come out of the closet. Plus, hottie Celia Gamez is looking like she likes him, and who could pass that up?

So Jamie gets together with Celia, and it turns out her dad’s a pharmaceutical researcher who’s developed a pill to turn gay kids straight. ┬áJamie steals some of the pills, but they don’t seem to have the effect he’d hoped for, and why is his arm randomly flailing?

Far-fetched, of course, but ultimately engaging, and worth getting past the silly premise.
