Documentary Feature Chronicles the First 10 Years of the Lives of the Twin Sons Born to Acclaimed Songwriter Desmond Child and His Lifelong Partner Curtis Shaw

(Los Angeles, CA)– One of the most eagerly awaited films of the year will be coming to Los Angeles. Directed by Heather Winters, TWO: THE STORY OF ROMAN AND NYRO, documents the 12-year journey of legendary songwriter Desmond Child and his lifelong partner Curtis Shaw, and the extraordinary way they met and connected with Angela Whittaker, the woman who would carry their twin sons, Roman and Nyro, into the world.

"Gay marriage opponents need to come up with a better argument than procreation,” states Child. “Gay people are NOT infertile... we actually can procreate... and our children deserve married parents. End of discussion, America.”

“We're just living our lives day by day, and we have the same ups and downs like any other family,” says Shaw. “Love is love.... and love makes a family. This is our story.”

From pre-conception through the boys’ first 10 years, TWO is the personal and powerful story of these unique individuals whose lives become inextricably woven together in magical and unexpected ways. TWO is testament to the universal power and ultimate triumph of love – that it is love that makes a family, affirming modern families may be modern in their making, but timelessly human at their core.

“This film couldn’t come at a more important moment in our nation’s history when hearts and minds are fractured and debate rages over equality,” says director Winters. “I’m honored that Desmond and Curtis entrusted me to tell the world their story and invited me into their lives in such an intimate and poignant way.”

The film is presented by Desmond Child’s film production arm, Deston Films and was produced by Desmond Child, Curtis Shaw Child and Heather Winters. For nearly three decades, songwriter and producer Desmond Child has reigned as one of music's most successful creative forces. His list of accolades includes Grammy awards, 70 Top 40 singles, and songs that have sold over 300 million albums worldwide.

Over the course of his career, Child has worked with international superstars including Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Ricky Martin, Cher, Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.

TWO: THE STORY OF ROMAN AND NYRO will be featured at the 2013 Outfest Film Festival, screening on Wednesday July 17th at 7:15 PM. For ticket informaiton, please visit: www.outfest.org .
