To most, Aiden (Taylor Hallman), the focus of our story, just seems like a normal teenager. He hates having to get up in the morning but loves to stay up all night, dislikes the way his mother (Marie-Claire Thauvette) pries into his life, can't totally relate to his father (David Hallman) who seems to be out-of-date, and thinks of school more as a place to catch up on his sleep and fool around with the guys than somewhere that you learn. What they don't see, however, is the double life that he is living.

Trapped in a nightmare world full of homophobic bullies, people who want to cure him, and a teacher (Greg Taylor) who seems determined to make his life miserable, Aiden, a closeted queer youth is forced to come face-to-face with his 'deviant' sexual ways. The question is will his adventures with Danny (Keigan Buffett) the charismatic and popular queer boy in town and Justine (Ember Vail), a G-string clad trans youth solve his lust for love, or will he succumb to the physical, verbal and digital barrage of abuse led by Francis (Scott Noris) the bully and from the judgmental world around him, and his fate become much more terminal.

Dedicated to Jamie Hubley, a young man who took his own life, after continually being bullied in his search for acceptance, Queer tries to accurately portray the angst that is felt by closeted and recently out youth in the community.
