it gets better visits Oxford to spread Love and Hope

By Will Gorman, The Miami Student | Feb 28, 2017

Messages of love and acceptance were abundant in Oxford last week as the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) passed through.

“Speaking up is scary. Take that leap anyway.”

“If we exude acceptance and love … it just starts with one of us.”

These were just a couple of the ideas conveyed during their week in Oxford, one of the stops on the GMCLA’s 2016-17 “It Gets Better” tour.

The It Gets Better project was founded in 2010 with the goal of broadcasting a message of hope to LGBTQ youth around the world.

Throughout last week, the “It Gets Better” cast hosted events on and off Miami’s campus for the entire Oxford community, including discussions with Miami faculty and students about how to solve issues the LGBTQ community is facing.
