The child of a dental assistant and construction worker who were high school sweethearts, Travis Stock grew up in Tucson, Arizona. His family were members of a United Methodist reconciling congregation in which same-sex ceremonies, well before Marriage Equality became the law of the land, were not unusual occurrences.
Even with that high level of community acceptance of LGBTQ people, Travis reflects on his own experiences of feeling different and separate as a gay boy, pouring himself into perfectionistic pursuits of music and studies as places to hide.
Travis’ story is one of both hiding and seeking, and toward the end of Act 1, beginning to come to terms with his true self through the well-timed help of one of his professors and the courageous healing work he and his family pursued.
