“When once upon a time becomes real.”
In every story there is a beginning, middle, and end; in most cases, it’s filled with adventure, drama, and in occasion romance. What happens when you mix adventure with a daily dose of drama and romance, with a sprinkle of fantasy all in one? Simple, you get the real-life story of Christopher L. Antie and William Ramos Jr.
In spring of 1999 Christopher L. Antie, a southern gay man born from a Christian home, and William Ramos Jr, a New York-born Hispanic man bowed into family values, meet their unexpected future destiny. It would become the fate of a gay couple grown from two boys to two men leading a rare relationship within the LGBTQ community, a relationship of holding on to a twenty-plus year commitment. Twenty years ago Chris and Will would discover their future by growing within the captivated fairy tales of the Walt Disney Company. Unnoticed by the life they eventfully managed, Chris and Will would eventually see themselves writing their story of a wish of a time about a time that would soon become their now. Lost in the guilt of being gay from a surrounding world and an unaccepting family, they would soon become cornered into an array of a true mass of acceptance falters. From their life with the Walt Disney Company to the lights of Hollywood, Chris and Will would have to find their fate they’ve been rejecting from the very start.
