At­lanta Gay Men’s Cho­rus presents a new work of choral the­ater based on author David Le­vithan’s Na­tional Book Award-win­ner “Two Boys Kiss­ing.” The book fol­lows the sto­ries of two gay teenagers who de­cide to break the world record for the long­est kiss, two other teens who are fall­ing in love and the story of a teen whose on­line life is dis­cov­ered by his par­ents. These sto­ries of fam­ily, first love, brav­ery and pain are watched over by a Greek cho­rus of gay men who died of AIDS. A pow­er­ful work that speaks to peo­ple of all gen­er­a­tions and walks of life, AGMC hosts per­for­mances Fri­day night at 8 p.m. and Satur­day at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. at Druid Hills Pres­by­te­rian Church, 1026 Ponce de Leon Ave. N.E., At­lanta, GA 30306.
