Pollyanna Gay is the story of August Applegate, a gay “every-man.”


Content in his own skin and true to his creed, this modern Don Quixote fights for his place at the table during the swiftly shifting societal arrogances of the 1970’s and 1980’s.


His journey takes him from his closeted existence in rural Virginia to Washington, D.C. where he carves out a new life for himself during the tumultuous AIDS epidemic that traversed the globe.


Often amusing, occasionally tragic, and appealingly poignant, this book’s truth glows in every fictional line.
