The Dead Boys' Club is the story of a young man in a world haunted by the absence of an entire generation of men that have gone before him: a generation that he should have known but, because of AIDS, is a generation that he can only imagine.
Awkward and shy, Toby is visiting his New York cousin Packard, who gives him a pair of shoes previously owned by Packard's recently deceased lover. When Toby dons the shoes, he is transported to the pre-AIDS 1970s world of promiscuity, hot guys and glitter balls. The Dead Boys' Club is an evocative, sexy and humorous exploration of a young man's coming out, and an homage to the generation that paved the way - some with their lives - before him.
