Hello and welcome. The purpose of this site is to raise awareness of Charlie!, which tells a story of redemption based on the experience of Charlie Howard, an openly gay man murdered at age 23 by three high school students in 1984. Our goals are modest: to remember Charlie, and to help change the world for the better. The site is still under construction; feel free to wander.
If you like what you hear and are interested in producing Charlie! or performing parts of it in concert, please contact us!
The images you see here are the only two publicly available of Charlie.
The picture on the right, a school photo, was sent to police after his murder.
Do you have others you would like to appear on this site? Please contact us.
On the left, you see a collection of puppets made by my friend Lee. These puppets were used to enhance the experience of those participating at several gatherings to listen to the demo recording of Charlie!.
