The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.
The Long Center is proud to present It Gets Better, September 20 in Dell Hall.
A collaboration by L.A.’s Speak Theater Arts, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and the It Gets Better Project, this musical performance provides a performing arts response to the difficult issue of bullying, one of the most challenging issues among today’s young adults and adolescents. The performance at the Long Center will involve a number of Austin musicians, including members of Conspirare, the Capital City Men’s Chorus and others, in a program designed to inspire and open minds.
The It Gets Better Project was founded in September 2010, when the first it gets better video was uploaded to YouTube, igniting a worldwide phenomenon. That video offered a desperately needed message of hope to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. It urged them to tough it out through the bullying and other challenges that confronted them in their teenage years, and described the positive future they could experience as adults. It told them that no matter how difficult things may be today, it gets better. Today, the mission of the It Gets Better Project is to communicate to LGBT youth around the world that it gets better, and to help effect the changes necessary to make it so.
