Tyler Flick has also worked in film and has had their documentary work “Homophobia Is Gay” about homophobia/queerphobia on school campuses featured in The Los Angeles Film Festival run by The Los Angeles Times.

The Song “Rainbow Lifeguard Tower” was released on December 30th, 2022 on Tyler’s birthday. It is about a real lifeguard tower painted rainbow on the beach that Tyler likes to hang out at where he feels accepted and safe. He aims to make his listener feel safe, accepted, happy, and loved imagining being in this magical place he has found as well.
