PROLEPSIS pro.lep.sis: The representation of a thing as existing before it actually does

What if you could change the course of queer history, one story at a time?

It's the fall of 1986, the age of walkmans, mix tapes, floppy discs and Jolt Cola. Sean's a twenty-five-year-old closeted gay sci-fi geek who runs a popular pulp 'zine called Prolepsis. A geek with a crush on the cute guy named Jason who works at the post office.

One day a pink envelope from an author named I.H. Tragitto arrives, with a gay sci-fi story that opens up new worlds of possibility in Sean's head. A story his homophobic boss chews him out for publishing. Emboldened by the tale, Sean finally asks Jason out, and is thrilled when his crush says yes.

When another story arrives from the mystery author, Sean is faced with a difficult choice. Defy his boss and publish it, and risk exposing his own secret, or stay safely in the closet and live a lie. And then there's Jason, with whom Sean is slowly falling in love.

What should he do? And who in the world is I.H. Tragitto?

Only time will tell.
