Eric Schwarz: My Father

Season 3

Growing up in Pharr, Texas as the smallest, nerdiest and gayest kid in class was made possible for Eric Schwarz through his father’s unconditional love. When Eric finds himself far away from Pharr with a burgeoning personal and professional life, he faces harrowing news about his father.

This story was told at Barefaced Stories in Perth, the theme of the night was HERE COMES TROUBLE, 24 June 2021 at The Rechabite Hall.
