Boyfriends Shawn Moore and Daniel Edwards have been together for about a year and a half. Recently, the couple went to see the movie "Moonlight," about an impoverished boy growing up amidst substance abuse. Seeing the film stirred Moore, and compelled him to open up in a way he never had before.

This prompted a trip to the StoryCorps Atlanta booth, where the couple discussed how Shawn’s relationship with his parents has affected him as an adult.
