Description

Kieran Quinn is a bit telepathic, a little psychokinetic, and very gay--three things that have gotten him through life perfectly well so far--but when self-styled prophet Wyatt Jackson arrives during Pride Week, things take a violent turn.
Kieran's powers are somewhat underwhelming but do have a habit of refracting light into spectacular rainbows for him to hide behind. Even so, it's not long before Kieran is struggling to maintain his own anonymity while battling wits with a handsome cop, getting some flirting in with a hunky leather man, saving some drag queens, and escaping the worst blind date in history. It's enough to make a fledgling hero want to give up before he even begins.
One thing's for sure: saving the day has never been so fabulous.
