Our Songbook!

July 16, 2018

7/16/18 – Our crowdfunding campaign has about a month remaining. We’re excited and grateful to have raised almost half the funds we need to film and record 20 original songs we’ve written during our 43 years together. Will you help us reach our goal?

Little did we know when we were 9 year old boys that we’d find each other and build a life together centered in love and creativity. As far as the culture has come, there’s still work to be done.

Our Amazing Queer Songbook will document, celebrate and share our unique story of love and collaboration. And hopefully inspire those of us who’ve seen the changing times as well as those just beginning the journey.
