Before the Show by J.M. Snyder

A short tale, only a scene, but really interesting.

Devin is a drag queen, in art Devine. He is 20 years old, young and happy to be. He is also quite in love with himself, he likes his looks and he likes to on stage and let people admire him. But Devin is not a Narcissus, he is not content to love himself in the mirror, he also wants to be loved by a real man, and his choice is Chuck, the bouncer of the club. Chuck is at the opposite of him, where Devin is thin and grace, Chuck is stock and strong. And he is totally stuck with Devin.

This is really only a sex scene, we can suppose that Devin is not wealthy and that he hardly ends the months, and probably the night club where he works is not top level entertainment, but Devin seems to be happy doing what he does... I wonder if it's only his young age that makes him happy and what he will be in ten years or so... maybe if Chuck will go beyond his boyish look, they can be still together.
