His mother, Mae, and Aunt Rose tried to play matchmaker, but each attempt was, in Mae’s words, “a swing and a miss.” Things changed once Mae and Rose realized Brian batted for the other team. Following a trip to the local gay bar, and with the assistance of the Lady Fantasia Extravaganza, Brian found love with Chase.
