Doug Strahm Debuts 'Better This Way' Video

It's a classic gay love story: two men in a heteronormative masculine world find love and comfort in each other -- but one man is afraid of what their friends and community might think.

In this heartfelt and stirring music video for "Better This Way," Doug Strahm explores the world of a gay bear construction worker who tries to balance his sexuality with the expectations and cultural boundaries of his friend circle. Featuring model Chris Miklos, this video will pull at your heartstrings as it offers visibility to an often underrepresented portion of the LGBT community.

Doug Strahm is a signer, songwriter and recording artist whose debut album "Everything Has Changed" dropped this past June. Check out the album on Itunes or visit Strahm's website for more information.
