Editor’s Note: Celebrating One Month.

Today, T.R.O.U. is celebrating one month since the website went live. To celebrate, I am launching the first short story, the first of anything aside from my ramblings, to be published here. It is described by the author, Chael Needle, as “two queer men finding love across generations and ethnicities”. I hope you will enjoy the aptly titled “Birthday Cake” as much as I did.

Also, to everyone who has joined in by checking out the website or following us on Instagram and Facebook, I am so happy you are here and I hope that together, we can make a difference in the world.
