Where the Boys Are opens in Manhattan on New Year’s Eve, 1999. With the world on the cusp of the new millennium, Jeff O’Brien and his ex-lover Lloyd Griffith are grieving the loss of their friend and mentor David Javitz to AIDS. Desperate to forget, Jeff has become a fixture on the dance floor, surrounding himself with ever-younger boy toys like Henry Weiner. Henry, who was an insurance-company geek until Jeff transformed him into a hottie with washboard abs, is secretly in love with Jeff, who’s got a thing for the mysterious and exotic Anthony Sabe. Lloyd, once the love of Jeff’s life, has left his job to run a B&B with widow Eva Horner.
Alternately narrated by Jeff, Lloyd, and Henry, Where the Boys Are is a high-octane trek through the gay party-circuit scene from Provincetown to San Francisco, Montreal to Palm Springs. With equal parts humor and pathos, it addresses universal issues of commitment, family, friendship, and the never-ending search for love that everyone can relate to, whether gay or straight, male or female.
