In May of 1999, Christopher Lee Antie and William Antie wished upon a star to meet the friend that could be the one. At 6:30 am, the next day, on May 29, 1999, their world would begin to change. They would soon find themselves speaking to each other inside the entertainment van heading to their shift to perform at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. As their friendship grew, they bonded as one. Together Christopher and William would struggle with their own identity and acceptance. Not clear of how to be, they continued just to let their lives be. Fate drove them through the struggles of battling out the villains of their lives from family and from people who couldn’t see them for who they were: two gay men. Running in despair, they learned to deal with and succeed in the ordeal of life struggles. Their succession brought them together to learn life lessons at a young age to their adult lives, from poverty and homelessness to overcome their hardships in mastering a high firm name for themselves. Christopher and William have been together for twenty-one plus years to this date, living the dream and becoming the dream. They’ve been quoted as “The Real Prince Charmings” for their challenging efforts on wishing upon a star and living out a pure fairy tale story. A story that has become a reality on how dreams do come true if you believe. Chris and Will married in November of 2020.
“Hey Guys….Thanks for your care and friendship.”
