Huge thanks to all 36 bands who donated their music to “Comp 175″ – A Benefit for Queer Programs & Services in the Pacific Northwest. I’m deeply moved by this community of generous, talented people and couldn’t be happier with how the record has turned out! It’s EPIC.

About the album title: Section 175 was a provision of the German Criminal Code from 1871 to 1994, making homosexuality a crime. Over 140,000 people were convicted under the law. The Nazis broadened the law in 1935 and thousands died in concentration camps in the prosecutions that followed.
Today, all over the world, the fight for LGBTQ freedom and equality is not yet won. Your purchase of this record helps to ensure that the important work of this vital community resource continues.
