The 'coming of age' story is an ever-popular genre, and if we're in the world of gay literature, what that usually translates to is a 'coming out' story. It's something that the overwhelming majority of us have had to do, and therefore the experiences ring true when we find them in literature. But there are those who argue that both gay rights and the gay experience has moved on, and that it's time we told different types of stories about gay characters. Some might even suggests that a coming out story is no longer interesting, or relevant, or even necessary.
