ANDY‘s best friend. Secretly gay, drawn to ANDY because he has the courage to come out, while DAVID does not. Perversely, no one thinks DAVID is gay even though he hangs out with ANDY, primarily because DAVID is so straight-acting and the fact that he dated MITZIE for a long time when they were younger. Confused by his sexuality, and the fact that he’s afraid to come out, he gets increasingly depressed and lets his appearance start to deteriorate. As things get worse he begins to entertain thoughts of suicide.
