CGMC is honored to be teaming up with Columbus Metropolitan Library and the Philadelphia Gay Mens Chorus in this exchange concert to present Two Boys Kissing. New York Times bestselling author David Levithan has collaborated with composer Joshua Shank to create a concert with spoken word based on his 2013 Lambda Literary Award winning book, Two Boys Kissing. Based on true events'and narrated by a Greek Chorus of the generation of gay men lost to AIDS'the story follows two seventeen-year-olds who are about to take part in a 32-hour marathon of kissing to set a new Guinness World Record. While the two increasingly dehydrated and sleep-deprived boys are locking lips, they become a focal point in the lives of other teens dealing with universal questions of love, identity, and belonging.
