Boyfriends Shawn Moore and Daniel Edwards have been together for about a year and a half. Recently, the couple went to see the movie "Moonlight," about an impoverished boy growing up amidst substance abuse. Seeing the film stirred Moore, and compelled him to open up in a way he never had before.
This prompted a trip to the StoryCorps Atlanta booth, where the couple discussed how Shawn’s relationship with his parents has affected him as an adult.
This story was recorded in partnership with the Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta's StoryCorps Booth.
