An anthology of Gay and Lesbian stories about young love published in association with The Albert Kennedy Trust Featuring writing by new and established Gay and Lesbian writers and the heart rending and heart warming true stories of youths helped by The Albert Kennedy Trust, Boys & Girls is an anthology like no other. The theme is young love: the first feelings, fleeting moments, but also the prejudice, repression and misconceptions. A young man travels home to Greece still hiding his sexuality. Two schoolgirls attract undue attention while rehearsing for a play. A priest visits a boy to cure him of his 'affliction'. The book is published with a unique double cover featuring Boys on one side and Girls on the other, joining in the middle with the true stories from The Albert Kennedy Trust.
