For fifty years, Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys is a highly respected institution dedicated to helping its’ students grow into “strong, ethical black men.” But what happens when Pharus does not fit the mold for a typical “Drew man?” Pharus is different from his peers, and his effeminate nature constantly sets him apart. Though he may be the leader and most talented member of Drew’s renowned gospel choir, he struggles to gain their acceptance and respect. Choir Boy is a moving story of sexuality, race, hope, gospel music, and a young gay man finding his voice.
