This is a Gay romantic comedy about an unusual relationship, which starts out on the wrong foot…then journeys from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. The episodes are interwoven with rocky, funny and romantic scenes between two gorgeous eighteen-yr-old college students…‘immature’ Fitzgerald and ‘arrogant’ Maurice, with a supporting cast of 59 characters. ‘No sex before marriage’ and the possession of many ‘special’ abilities are two of Maurice’s attributes, which add spice to this story.
This is a Gay romantic comedy about an unusual relationship, which starts out on the wrong foot…then journeys from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. The episodes are interwoven with very rocky, very funny and sweet romantic scenes between two gorgeous eighteen-yr-old college students, Fitzgerald and Maurice. Fitzgerald’s father, a medical doctor with a sizable gay patient clientele, is unaware of his own son’s sexual orientation. His Clinical Psychologist mother is decidedly homophobic. On the other hand, Maurice’s ultra-liberal Christian parents knew that their son was Gay from an early age…and when he was very young, they informed him of that fact, dismissing the need for him to ‘come out’ to them. Fitzgerald meets Maurice under very unusual circumstances and their unlikely relationship begins during their Music Performance class at college. The story covers the first six months of their out-of-the-ordinary courtship. Maurice believes in ‘no sex before marriage’ and possesses many 'special' abilities, which spice up the story even more. You’ll also become acquainted with the 59 members of their families, friends and other characters who help make this tale come alive.
