Song Story 9 – I Hope You’re Home by Emmet Michael

Powered by RedCircle

In this Song Story, I chat with Edmonton Music Prize winner Emmet Michael about feeling far from home in his own community and his own body.

Growing up queer and trans Emmet learned self-hatred from a faith tradition that was supposed to offer unconditional love. After a journey through addiction, he finally feels at home in his own body, but a friend could not find that home and ended his own life. Emmet’s song I Hope Your Home is a response to that tragic loss.
