The Only Two Gay Men in the World

In the Mexican border town where Carlos Valenzuela grew up, homosexuality was considered an aberration. So when he and his best friend Gustavo both realized they were gay, they were terrified. With the support of Gustavo, a slew of world travels, and an ever-curious mind, Carlos is now unafraid to be himself.
