If you were fortunate enough to attend The National Equality March or have seen photos from the event then chances are you've seen Damien & Seanmichael; they're what I'd like to call the unofficial black gay poster couple of the march. When I saw their photo I knew I had to find out more about them.
By Damien & Seanmichael being present together in DC on that historic day they were, perhaps unknowingly, defying stereotypes commonly associated with black gay men. They were present, politically aware, politically involved, out of the closet, in love and committed to each other for all the world to see.
Both are involved in the music industry, Seanmichael behind the scenes as a producer and Damien, better known to fans as Dy'Ari (pronounced diary) out front as a singer. But it's the beautiful music they're making together as a couple that we're celebrating as they become the latest to be featured on Coupled Up.
This also marks the first time a video montage has been created for this series since it began on loldarian.com
Many thanks to Damien & Seanmichael for sharing their love with us.
