DAMN WONDERFUL is a documentary celebrating the journey of self-love and self-worth of 6 young LGBTQP poets from New York City and Los Angeles. They come from various backgrounds and experiences, offering a visceral and honest look into some of the challenges and triumphs our youth are facing.

A gifted writer and an accomplished performer, Sean Patrick Mulroy is a dedicated student of literature and a firm believer in the power of the oral tradition. Born and raised in Southern Virginia, the house where Sean Patrick Mulroy grew up was built in 1801 and was commandeered by the union army during the civil war to serve as a makeshift hospital. As a boy, Sean loved to peel back the carpets to show where the blood from hasty surgeries on wounded soldiers had stained the wooden floorboards. Now he writes poems.

Sean has performed in 10 countries on 3 continents, participated in 6 national spoken-word competitions, written and recorded 3 albums of music, and released over 10 chapbooks of original poetry. He has been published in both online and print journals, and has featured at literary festivals for universities and arts organizations all over the World. He is currently on tour full-time (for a list of scheduled dates, visit www.thevanishingman.com) while working on 3 new manuscripts and a new musical project. 

A firm believer in the power of the oral tradition.
