Your support of the Voice Awards helps the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles fund its general operations and continue funding these two very important programs!

GMCLA’s “Alive Music Project” (AMP), is a unique music education outreach program designed for middle and high school students that uses song to create a powerful anti-bullying message.

Every year over 85% of LGBT students in American schools are physically or verbally abused.

For over thirty eight years GMCLA has used music to overcome prejudice. Now we’re using song to teach acceptance and equality in schools. Now in its 10th year, the AMP program has reached over 50,000 students in schools throughout Los Angeles. Busting LGBT stereotypes through live music and personal sharing improves students’ self-esteem and helps them recognize and eliminate bullying of all types.

igb-roof-1250it gets better is a collaboration between the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, Speak Theater Arts and the It Gets Better Project. The work explores what “better” means for LGBT youth through stories, songs and multimedia on an array of challenging themes.

With its unqualified support of all young people, it gets better creates and unites allies in solidarity against the pervasive (and growing) climate of bullying and teen violence.

An eight member cast of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) forms the core of the touring production. Over the course of a one-week residency, these artists collaborate with local performers, citizens, educational and government institutions in building a community performance responding to the issue of bullying in local schools. GMCLA  brings with them a fully formed program including dynamic musical content and video production elements appropriate to the theme, into which are woven local participants and local content.


Thank you for your support!
