Brad — Act Up Hero, Lover, Friend

Portrait of a man, the beginning

Thanks for coming to see me.

Nobody really does anymore. I get it, they’re busy. Plus I smell so bad, I make myself sick. Gross, right? And sometimes when I look in the mirror, I wanna heave.

They call me Brad. It’s really Broderick, but I always hated that name.
