Chapter 21


My heart was racing as we walked down to talk to the student activities director about forming an LGBT club. My first thought was, how in the hell did you get yourself into this situation. You should have listened to Matt. After all, who knew how the kids at school would react when they found out it was my idea. But then Emily and Gina weren't lesbians and as far as I knew Ollie could be bisexual or gay, and he'd fit right in. If they were willing to put their necks out, why shouldn't I? Of course, we could have them chopped off. I kept hoping Mr. Lynch, the student activities director wouldn't be in his office, but of course he was.

We stopped outside his office.

I looked around the group. "Who's going to do the talking?"

"You are," Emily said without a bit of hesitation. "You said you're the boss. I would have talked to Mr. Lynch, but now it's on you."

"No one else wants to do it?" I asked.

"Nope. You're in charge," Ollie said with a grin.

"Let's do it," I said as I knocked on Mr. Lynch's door.


We walked in and he gave us a broad smile. "What can I do for all of you?"

"Uh. Uh. We'd like to form a gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender club."

The smile left his face.

He cleared his throat. "Do you all qualify?"

Emily spoke up. "Well, no." She pointed at Ollie. "We're not sure what he is, but Gina and I are not lesbian, transgender, or bisexual."

Ollie gave her a dirty look. "I might be bisexual. I really don't know. I just thought it would be a great idea to start a club to give kids a chance to meet and share their thoughts and feelings."

Mr. Lynch pulled some papers out of his desk. "You need to fill these out indicating you want to start a club and who the starting members are." He paused. "You realize this could cause a stir on campus. Who knows how some of the students will react?"

Thank God for Emily. She just took over. I was always amazed at her confidence. You already know Emily had no trouble expressing her opinion. "We understand that Mr. Lynch, but everyone loves talking about courage, but not many people show it. We're willing to take our chances."

Mr. Lynch looked at all of us. "You all agree with Ms. Cooper?"

We all nodded. Mine wasn't quite as telling as the others.

"Mr. Gibson, you seem unsure."

"To be honest, Mr. Lynch, this was my idea and I know there will be some blowback. It scares me a little. But there's a need for this club on campus. I've had a lot of guys come up and talk to me about being gay now that they know I am. They have doubts and questions. This would be a good place for people to meet. We need to let students know that everyone is welcome, and just because they are a member doesn't mean they fall into any of these four categories. We're forming this club to support each other."

Mr. Lynch looked directly at me. "Your reasoning is good, but you know that anyone who goes to one of those meetings is going to be labeled. Do you really think you'll be able to get other kids to come?"

Emily stepped forward. "Gina, Oliver, and I will do our best to recruit other students."

"Why not form a GSA club?" Lynch asked. "You know, a Gay-Straight Alliance? Wouldn't that be better?"

I wondered why he knew so much. I'd never heard of a Gay-Straight Alliance until he mentioned it.

Mr. Lynch handed me the papers. "I'd like all of you to do some research and report back to me with your findings. There's a lot of information on the Internet. We'll discuss it and you let me know what you decide. Is that fair?"

I took the papers. "My only concern is that a GSA club will make it sound like we're leaving out the students who are bisexual, lesbian, or transgender."

"That's a legitimate concern, Andy. But maybe you'll change your mind after you do some research."

Ollie raised his hand. "How come you know so much about this? We were expecting a lot more resistance."

Lynch smiled. "It's my job to know about these things. I figured after all the publicity from Dillon Burke's trial that there was a good possibility someone might want to form a club."

"Are you gay?" Ollie asked.

"Your name is Oliver, right?"

Ollie nodded.

"Let's just say that the answer to that question is personal. But if you do form a club, I might be willing to be your advisor."

I was ready to jump up and down and make a fool out of myself right there in his office. All my fear was gone. Mr. Lynch was going to support us. I was expecting him to give us a hard time.

Then he said, "I'll have to talk to Principal Evans about this. And I imagine he'll have to take it to the school board. But you can count on my support."

Gina had been quiet, taking it all in until then. "Mr. Lynch, you know this will slow everything down. Mr. Evans will be fine. He's been great through all the Dillon Burke fallout. Andy, Matt, and Thomas can testify to that. But the school board, that's another thing. It will probably die right there."

Mr. Lynch stood. "Ms. Lockhart. It is Ms. Lockhart, right?"

"Yes it is, Mr. Lynch."

"Don't get ahead of yourself. There are rules we have to follow and you don't know what the outcome will be."

Thomas spoke up. "Mr. Lynch, this is important to us. What options do we have if they say no?"

Thomas always surprised me at how quiet and shy he could be. He just stood there and listened. It was sometimes hard to know what he was thinking.

"Your name is Thomas, right?"

Thomas nodded.

"Like I said, there are rules we have to follow. At this point, you don't know whether you'll be forming an LGBT club or a GSA club. You'll have a better idea after you do your research. I suggest you calm down for now. Don't create problems before they exist. Report back to me as soon as your research is done. We'll fill out the paperwork and we'll see what happens after that."

"We were hoping to get it all done today," Emily said.

"I understand that. But I'm doing my job and trying to make sure you make the best decision for you and your members. I've already told you I'd be your advisor. You have my support and I want you to do the best thing for the young men and women who join your club." He gave us a big smile. "Now get out of here. I have things to do."

We got in each other's way as we clamored over one another trying to get out of the office and into the hall at the same time.

"What a lot of administrative bull," Emily spouted.

"Relax, Em," I said. "Mr. Lynch is on your side. You should know enough to understand that what we want to do is going to be pretty damn controversial. Why do you think Matt, Alan, and Ernie didn't join us?"

I was actually relieved and happy to take the time to do the research. The whole thing scared me. It sounded like such a great idea when Matt and I were on our date, but now that we were actually doing it, doubt began to stir inside my head.

The five of us agreed that we'd do our own research and meet at lunch the next day to discuss our findings and make a decision about which club to form.


Basketball season was over and we were already in the month of May. The days were longer and warmer so Andy and I walked home after school so we could talk about his LGBT club. He told me about the meeting with Mr. Lynch and said that it wasn't until they were on the way to Lynch's office that he began to have doubts.

I told him I might consider joining if they formed a GSA club. That made him smile.

Andy fidgeted with his fingers as we talked. "I now know how you felt on our date night when I brought it up. The adrenaline rush has made me horny. How `bout you?"

"I'm always horny. You want to do something about it?"

"Yeah, what do you have in mind?"

I pointed in the direction of the pond. "It's warm enough to go out to the pond."

Andy smiled. "Damn good idea. Can you get the car? I can't."

"No, my parents are both out." I put my arm around Andy's neck. "Let's ride our bikes like the old days. I'll grab a blanket."

We were at the pond and stripped in no time. We no longer had to take glances at each other in secret. We could admire each other openly and lovingly. The rope still hung from the tree, a little more tattered and worn than when we first put it up. I suppose our lives were like that too. Andy grabbed the rope and swung his naked body out, did a somersault, and screamed when he hit the cold water. He came up. "Shit it's cold."

"Big baby. Give me the rope."

The huge knot at the end of the rope that I tied two years before was tighter from so many kids swinging on it over the last two years. I looked at it and thought, it's only been two years but it seems like ten.

I swung out and tried to flip like Andy, but let go too soon and went in feet first. I came up. "I don't know what you're complaining about. It feels great."

"You're so full of shit. Stay there. I'm coming in."

Andy grabbed a condom, dove in, and moved toward me (we still hadn't gotten tested yet). I remembered the first time we were in the pond naked and he came close to me. I was afraid he was going to hug me and our bodies would touch. Now I longed for it as he moved next to me, pulled his slim teen body next to mine, and pressed our hardening cocks together. The water was cold but as we hugged and twisted around in the water, the cold went away as warmth from our bodies ignited our passion. Andy kissed me and I kissed back as our tongues lashed at each other. My cock was hard. "Do you want to fuck me or me you?" I asked.

"Fuck me. I love your cock in my ass."

The water made us buoyant so I suggested we try something we'd never done before. "Let's try something new. Stay facing me. I'm going to lift you and put my dick in your ass and bounce you up and down. Doesn't that sound hot?"

"You're so blunt. What do you mean stick your dick in my ass? How about something romantic like, I'm going to put my magic wand in your love canal and perform magic."

"Okay. I'm going to put my magic wand in your love canal and perform magic. Are you happy?"

"Yeah, let's fuck."

I lifted him and slid my magic wand into his love canal easily because the water lubed his ass and my cock. I no longer noticed the cold water. Andy put his arm around my neck and kissed me as I moved him up and down. It felt so good having my cock in his ass and his tongue in my mouth. "I think I'm going to cum."

"So soon. We just started."

"Can't help it. Ahhhhh. Shit." My cock got so hard I thought it was going to explode. The beginning of my climax was long and extended the beginning of its pumping action so that the feelings in the head of my cock lasted longer than usual before it began to pump its load into Andy's ass. "Oh fuck. This is hot. Damn. Shit. I don't think it's ever going to stop. It must be the water or your fine love canal." I was panting and gasping for air by the time I finished.

"I felt each shot of your warm cum in my ass. It made me warm all over."

"Glad you liked it. I'm not sure what it was, but that was one of the best orgasm I've had in a long time," I said as I was trying to catch my breath.

"Nice, but how about me? My cock needs attention. Blow me."

. We climbed out of the water, stretched the blanket on the ground, and laid head to cock. I took his wet cock into my mouth, licked around the head, and up and down his shaft before putting my mouth over the tip of his cock, sucking it while flipping my tongue against the sensitive part of the head. He took my softening cock into his mouth and it came back to life. I worked on Andy's magic wand until he said, "I'm going to cum. Let me cum in your mouth." He'd done it before and I actually found Andy's cum sweet. I kept working on the head and going down to the pubes until his breathing quickened and I felt his cock stiffen in my mouth. I slowed up to let him cum, only moving enough to let him finish without me touching the sensitive head. "My God. It's been so long. Fuck. Fuck. Damn, Matt. This is almost better than having my dick in your ass. In fact, it is better. Shit. Let's do this again when we're done."

"I'm game if you are. But first, put my cock back in your mouth and finish the job."

We fucked two more times on the blanket that afternoon. The sun was setting as we climbed on our bikes and Andy said, "Ready, set, go." And of course, he did as he always did---took off on the word set. I did my damndest to catch up. The difference now was that I didn't slow down around the turn like I used to. I sped up and it was Andy who slowed just enough for me to catch up. I was ahead when we got to my house. "Gotcha," I said. "You can't even win when you cheat."

He climbed off his bike and patted me on the back just as my mom pulled into the driveway. She glanced at us as she grabbed some bags from the trunk. Her eyes panned over to the blanket folded over my handlebars, then asked, "Can I get some help?"

We headed over to help her.

"Where'd you go that you needed a blanket?"

"Out to the pond," I answered as if it was nothing.

"Did you have fun?"

"A lot," Andy said. "We did all the things we used to do when we were younger. We swung on the rope, swam, and laid on the blanket and talked. It was just like old times. I cheated as usual on our bike race, but this time Matt beat me."

She smiled. "I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves."

Andy and I gave each other a quick smile as he climbed on his bike. "Gotta go, Mrs. Spence. See you later, Matt."

"Later, man." It seemed strange seeing a sixteen-year-old boy riding a bike.


I started my LGBT research with a Google search that did not locate LBGT clubs but mentioned only forming Gay-Straight Alliance clubs in high school. That pretty much answered our question about the type of club we were going to organize. This is what I discovered about the Gay-Straight Alliance at


What is a GSA? 

A Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is a student-run club in a high school or middle school that brings together LGBTQ and straight students to support each other, provide a safe place to socialize, and create a platform for activism to fight homophobia and transphobia.  Learn more

What does GSA Network do?

GSA Network helps LGBTQ students and straight allies organize GSA clubs focused on activism to create safer schools.

GSA Network's resources empower students to advocate for safe schools policies, mobilize their peers to stand up for safety and equality, and train teachers to stop bullying.

By providing in-depth leadership and activist training for youth, GSA Network is building a generation of leaders for LGBTQ rights and social justice.

As a youth-driven organization, GSA Network brings the voices and perspectives of youth to the forefront of the LGBTQ movement.

GSA Network's successful youth-led organizing in California is a national model that is accelerating the growth and impact of the GSA movement nationwide.


All five of us found basically the same information and decided to form a GSA club. During lunch, we filled out the form Mr. Lynch gave us while Matt, Alan, and Ernie looked on.

"So, can I join?" Alan asked.

"Of course. It's the gay-straight alliance. That means you can be straight and still join. This will keep anyone from harassing you because you belong," I said.

Alan threw up his right hand. "Yeah, good luck with that. But hell, we hang with you guys anyway, so what difference does it make?"

Ernie expressed the same opinion.

Gina glanced at Matt. "What about you, Matt?"

"I think I can go along with this. I just don't like labels. The other group sounded like you had to be in one of those four categories."

I poked Matt in the ribs. "So you're still trying to pass for straight?"

"No, but I don't believe in advertising." Matt changed the subject. "Gina, how was your date with Greg?"

"Great! We had a good time. He's nice and a gentleman."

I winked at Gina. "He didn't try to put any moves on you, did he? If he did, tell Matt and he'll take care of it."

Matt punched me in the thigh.


Ollie leaned in like he had a big secret. "Thomas and I are going to meet under the elm tree in front of the school. What do you think of that?"

All heads turned to Thomas. "We're just going to talk and get to know each other better."

Matt said, "Ollie, be sure you call him an asshole so you can kiss and make up."

Ollie laughed. "I guess I deserve that one."


All of us, including Matt, Alan, and Ernie, all went to see Mr. Lynch after school and give him the papers to form our club.

"I guess you realized there aren't really any LGBT clubs on most campuses."

"Yep," I said. "We learned a lot and we think this is the right way to go."

Lynch smiled. "Good for you. I'll present it to Principal Evans and he'll have it put on the agenda of the next school board meeting. I suggest that you get to work between now and then to get as many supporters as you can to the meeting. You made need them."

I squinted at Mr. Lynch. "This is all we have."

"Well, get to work. You wanted to start the club, so round up some supporters."

We left his office unsure, but ready to at least go to people other than guys like Jackass Barnes. We knew there had to be at least ten or fifteen people we could recruit, and that's what we set out to do.
