Sean Chapin is a songwriter and videographer for the LGBTIQ civil rights movement. Since Proposition 8 passed in California in November 2008, Sean has written and self-produced numerous songs for LGBTIQ civil rights. His work has been geared towards helping to change the hearts and educate the minds of those who don't fully understand LGBTIQ people and towards helping to galvanize the LGBTIQ community to further the movement toward freedom and equality.
Sean is also a singing member of the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus. He wrote a song that the chorus performed on its historic 2010 California Freedom Tour, We Are Coming Out, as the chorus traveled to areas of the state that voted in favor of Prop 8.
Sean's eventual goal is to release a trilogy of music albums on iTunes called United We Love as a means to raise funds for, and further awareness of, the movement. He plans to fulfill this goal by the end of 2012, if not earlier. Sean has the album More Equal Union currently available for purchase. All proceeds raised from sales of his songs and albums on iTunes are being donated to LGBTIQ equality advocacy organizations.

Sean Chapin Releases Music Album to Raise Money for LGBT Civil Rights
More Equal Union will champion and fund the continuing fight for LGBT equality.
San Francisco, CA, June 7, 2009 - Musician, videographer, and YouTube advocate for LGBT civil rights Sean Chapin announced the release of an original music album in support of the gay rights movement. The album, titled More Equal Union, was released for sale on iTunes in the United States on May 6, 2009, and all proceeds from album sales will be donated to Lambda Legal, a national organization committed to achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those with HIV.
"Sean has created a moving album that reaches deep into our collective yearning for equality, and he touches us with the strength of music clearly born from the rights we briefly held but are once again denied," says Stuart Milk.
...
"In the spirit of diversity, I incorporated many different genres to appeal to a range of musical tastes," says Chapin. "My goal is to increase awareness among both gay and straight people of the true breadth of issues currently affecting the LGBT population.
Conceptually tied together, the songs of More Equal Union introduce a fictional gay family (Ethan and Jacob). Beginning with their first meeting, the album tells Ethan and Jacob's story as they react to the forces around them and meet a tragic end.
"Stories inject humanity and emotion into a cause, and I hope that the story behind this album helps listeners better relate to the songs," says Chapin.
Included in the album is track "United We Love," a folk song reviewed favorably by gay lifestyle website Queerty.com. Chapin performed "United We Love" live in front of 10,000 attendees at the San Francisco Join the Impact rally last November.
...
"In More Equal Union, Sean Chapin has given voice to a movement, and what a beautiful voice it is!"
Chapin has also self-produced music videos for some of the album's tracks, incorporating footage he shot at LGBT-related events over the past year. The videos include "Grand," a rock song celebrating same-sex marriage, and "Promise," a slow ballad and parent's ode to a newborn child, both of which were reviewed favorably on the web.
With the release of More Equal Union, Chapin hopes to sell 10,000 copies and raise $100,000 in proceeds for Lambda Legal. He also wants to change minds about the issues affecting LGBT people.
"Sean allows us to feel our community's desire for inclusion and to hear our unified cry- that our love will not be denied, that we will not be silent, that we will no longer hide, and we will not diminish our hope nor our pride," says Milk.
...
"When the California Supreme Court removed the ban on same-sex marriage last may, I felt like an equal Californian for the first time in my life," says Chapin.
