SAYING GOODBYE IS EXHAUSTING is a song written about the loss that has ravaged the LGBTQ+ community through time, the premature goodbyes that are such a part of the LGBTQ+ experience. A duet with the incredible Justin Vivian Bond, one of my favourite performers and NYC nightlife staples.

In order to do something hopeful and uplifting for World AIDS Day 2020, there is a special EP release of this song to raise money and awareness for Visual AIDS, an amazing organization based in NYC. Learn more about them here.
