Description of Submission: "A dance (duet) choreagraphed/performed by myself.  About the struggles and triumps of any couple including gays go through proving the point that love is love, always.  I choreographed and performed in, with my boyfriend.  I fully believe in making stements in my pieces I create, and this piece I made specifically for this scholarship.  The dance is a duet entitled "My Copious Prize", to a beautiful song, "The Tower of Learning" by Rufus Wainwright.  I wanted to express through movement, the struggles and triumps a gay couple goes through just like anyone else in the world.  So often, homosexuals are sterotyped as wild individulas that are only interested in a promiscuous life style.  Just like any heterosexual couple, we go through happiness together as well as sadness, anger, and every other emotion thinkable.  In conclusion, I wanted to state that relationships are all the same and love is always love no matter what other people might say or think." - Travis
