Local Songwriter Bridges Gap of Understanding And Acceptance Through Music

Jun 8, 2018

Fort Wayne native, Doug Strahm, is a gay singer songwriter who shares his own message of self-acceptance through his music to help others learn that they are not alone on their journey.

Doug's passion for playing and writing music began at an early age, and has always been a part of his life, as well as a source of relaxation, as he calls it.

His output includes music videos, as well as cd's, all focusing on issues that he feels need to be addressed.
