I'm not sure this thread would go here. Actually, I dunno WHERE it would go. But, anyway, I've been working on a novel about two brothers. I recently realized that the novel actually centers around one of the brothers so I just made it about him. I'm calling the story The Trouble With Tony. The main character, Tony, is a 15-year-old boy who is struggling with bullies at school, no one believing his imaginary friend, Sofia, actually exists (Sofia actually tells the story), and being gay. Yes, gay. And this book is for middle-high schoolers. Well, I've always had this idea of Tony being gay (since I, myself, am lesbian) but I didn't think I should add it until I read this inspiring book about a Transgender boy (sorry, I mean girl) and I thought, "The best way to get educated is to read books so if I want to educate people I should reveal that Tony is gay." so now I think I should reveal to the reader that Tony is gay. But, I'm still not sure I should. Especially because Tony's boyfriend is 5 years older than him (which I might actually change). So, basically, I'm asking: should I reveal that Tony is gay or not? I want to keep my audience middle-high school and revealing that he's gay might mess that up.
