San Francisco, 1973. Amid a crowd of men in suits and a psychiatrist in a Nixon mask, 10-year-old Peter witnesses a landmark moment in gay rights and reaches out to grab the hand of Oakland boy Deshawn. Specially commissioned by A.C.T. and Z Space for the M.F.A. Program class of 2018, this is an epic story about love, queerness, and what we can’t help looking at.
