The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles will present It Gets Better on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the Eisenhower Auditorium.
“It Gets Better” is a moving web-based project that was created to show young LGBT people a bright future for their lives if they can just get through their teen years, when struggles are often paramount.
The project has joined with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and Speak Theater Arts to tour the nation with a new theatrical production. It Gets Better is upbeat and exciting, with a storyline that includes moments of pain and sorrow. The performance develops from members of the chorus working with local performers, citizens, and community organizations to respond to issues of bullying and teen violence while striving to give motivation to those currently undergoing challenges.
It Gets Better is an inspiring production that shows not only the LGBT community, what “better” means through meaningful real-life stories, songs, and multimedia content.
Each of the cast members is gay and has had “It Gets Better” experiences throughout their life. Everyone in the audience, despite their sexual preference, is encouraged to come listen to the relatable stories.
Tickets to the show are $10 for University Park students. The content of the show is not suitable for young children due to the inclusion of some strong language.
