In San Francisco, he moves into a safehouse populated by a group of seven teens. Until they come of age, the kids hide from neighbors, ruthless bounty hunters and the police.

STUFF THAT MAKES A GAY HEART WEEP
Author: Feeman Hall
Adams Media

A Definitive Guide to the Loud & Proud Dislikes of Millions, is the bitchiest bitch fest west of the West Village and this side of the Castro.
What does it mean for you audience?
One hundred and fifty of the campiest pet peeves ever conceived equals pure comedic genius “I wrote STUFF THAT MAKES A GAY HEART WEEP because my gay heart has been doing a lot of weeping lately,” states Freeman. “With Sara Palin yapping her mouth, people still wearing Crocs in public, scarves in summer, Uggs with dresses, the Kardashians taking over the world, five dollar cupcakes, and Richard Simmons claiming not to be gay…I’m weeping and gagging at the same time!”
So, kick back readers, pour a Keter One on the rocks and start laughing until you cry. This one’s just for you!
