About this submission
This is a segment of a feature script I've been working on for the past year or so. As stated in the challenge, this is around the third act and close to the resolution.
This is an LGBTQIA+ coming of age story, but it's not necessarily a coming-out tale since all the characters that identify as such are very secure of their identity even if not everyone has been as accepting.
M is for Marcus, the lead character, a Dominican American 18-year-old who has run from home and into the arms of Caleb and Cam because his father disagrees with his choice of going away to college after he graduates.
C2 is first for Caleb, an 18-year-old classical music child prodigy, who moved to town after a conflict with his stepdad in L.A. Since his arrival in town and first meeting with Marcus he has gotten back into playing the music he had long given up on.
Second part of C2 is Cam, an 18-year-old, non-binary, Instagram micro-influencer who is Caleb's best friend and life partner. They are very colorful and optimistic, they love Caleb and have grown quite fond of Marcus.
Love is what the story is mainly about, the power of it when we find it, and our mission to keep what is ours close to us even if it challenges others POV's.
