INDIANAPOLIS – As Indiana’s GOP-led Senate Rules Committee once again moved to advance anti-LGBT legislation this week, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) is at the heart of the Hoosier State bringing its message of hope and inclusiveness to LGBTQ youth.
Through its “It Gets Better” tour, GMCLA, in collaboration with the It Gets Better Project and Speak Theater Arts, hopes to show young LGBTQ Hoosiers that despite the reprehensible and discriminatory bills targeting them in their own state, it does in fact get better.
Presented by AT&T with additional support by Southwest Airlines, the official tour airline, and Foresters Financial, the tour has traveled the country over the past three years producing weeks of educational content, including workshops, bookended by moving and empowering stage shows highlighting poignant real-life stories from other LGTBQ youth and powerful musical numbers from the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles that have brought people to laughter and tears.
