 No matter how difficult things may seem, it gets better…

In 2010, a single video posted on the internet to offer hope to young people struggling with their sexuality inspired a world-wide sensation. Now a live performance sharing the message of hope, It Gets Better is infused with the dynamic musical energy of The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and the internationally recognized branding of the It Gets Better Project. It Gets Better provides a performing arts response to the difficult issue of bullying, one of the most challenging issues among today’s young adults and adolescents. It Gets Better is upbeat, exciting, and funny with a narrative that includes moments of pain and pathos. By tackling broader issues of tolerance and diversity, the work reminds us all that it does, indeed, get better.

A collaboration between the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, Speak Theater Arts, and the It Gets Better Project.
