Kearns is a regular contributor to a number of magazines and newspapers, including the Frontiers, Los Angeles Times, L. One character is a gay yuppie who lies about his homosexuality and his illness; another is a black female streetwalker worried about her AIDS-infected newborn baby. On the one hand, there was an openness about being gay around the school, but the message you really heard was, you wouldn't get very far if you were out.
As Kearns' parents, themselves worthy of a Tennessee Williams subplot, battled each other at their divorce proceedings when Michael was a child, his father presented damning surveillance of his mother's many infidelities. He is known for, among other things, being the first openly gay actor and the first openly HIV positive actor in Hollywood.

The last third of the book focuses on Kearns' adoption of a baby girl born to a crack-addicted mother, his selfless love for her, and how their bond throughout her upbringing conjures up everything from his fears of AIDS mortality to his unresolved issues with his own troubled parents.
