Thoughts about "The United States of God-Des & She," written by God-Des
First and foremost, HELLO and thanks for supporting us here on Kickstarter. This is a new experience for us and we really appreciate your patience and loyalty to God-Des & She. Over the last two years we have been hard at work writing and conceptualizing our 4th record. These last two years have been very challenging for me personally, losing my dad to Cancer. I finally now feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I want to make him extra proud of this record. He was a classical trombonist and never held his tongue about the work SHE and I did. So Dad, I hope this record makes you proud!!!
When God-Des & She started, we had one goal. To bring visibility to the LGBTQ community. We wanted to give a voice to the invisible and hope to our people. Over the years we have stayed true to who we are and never strayed from that mission. With that being said, this record is especially important to us because we tackled a lot of very important issues and understand that our community is in major turmoil right now. With our community gaining power and political rights, history resurfaces and shows it's ugly hate, bigotry, and fear of change. But stay strong family, we will get political equality! And like the millions of oppressed people before us, we have to stay strong in our fight.
We hope that with "The United States of God-Des & She," we can bring a little humor, power, inspiration & strength to our society. Hope you guys like it as much as we do. AND....we are half way to reaching our goal today of $10,000. So YAY! We are confident that with the continued help of fans like you, we WILL reach our goal. Together, we can change the world. Thanks!
