Okay, author, I like stories that are cast full of gay. 

They're not my favourite thing, but I can sometimes enjoy stories about finding love in a conservative, homophobic, repressed environment, as well.  But when your story about your queer couple bravely coming out in the face of said conservative, homophobic, repressed environment is also cast full of gay, the environment itself loses all verisimilitude.   You have more than half a dozen queer couples in this story with nary a straight pairing or any act of straight affection stronger than hand-holding in sight!

Maybe next time just call it a gay high school AU soap opera and get on with it?

Every time I come across an all-slash fic in a supposedly repressive setting, I find myself wondering if the author doesn't just want an excuse to throw around homophobic language. I know it's as or more likely that homophobic bullying just makes for easy angst, but I still wonder.
