Okay guys, I noticed there weren't a lot of stories like this, so I wanted to issue this challenge because it's something that was a really big rumor throughout our beloved Michael's life.
Write a story where Michael Jackson is in the closet. Yes, in the closet. Whether or not he really was gay is his damn business (as a female, I'd like to think he was into women) but imagine a time when, even in the most androgynous decade ever, being gay was a curse, and he saw himself as the curse. With all that pressure to be one thing when he was another could have been hell, as it is for so many poor young gay people even today.
Doesn't matter how long, but it HAS to start in the 80's, and there has to be some sort of coming out in some way...you can put that at the end or at the beginning, whatever. Good luck! I hope you can make me cry!
