Justin Case and the Closet Monster is the story about two closeted gay men, Justin and Peter, who struggle to come to terms with who they are. Each man has closed the door on the possibility that he might be gay and made a pact with himself to never open it. Luckily for them, members of the Closet Monsters Guild - a legion of magical creatures that reside in a parallel dimension - are about to come along and open that door from the other side. A journey of faith, love, and family, this poignant story blends mythology, campy wit, and fantasy to show that while Justin’s path out of the closet has many hurdles, he learns that he is not alone in his quest to accept himself and find true love.
