Video: Collaboration on Aguilera's "Beautiful"

Participation in the "It Gets Better" project and The Trevor Project continues to grow. One of our members found a reference to Ohio's efforts in the Advocate recently. Adding their voices to the mix, the Columbus, Ohio Gay Men's Chorus and Columbus Children's Choir performed together at the beginning of the month. As their encore, they sang "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera in honor of youth struggling with bullying. Their conductor notes,
"The Columbus Gay Men's Chorus can think of no better way to contribute to this campagin than to combine with the Columbus Children's Choir creating a video contribution to the It Gets Better campaign with Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful." We choose this song because it is current, it is a song that the youth hear often and can identify with. So whatever issues our youth are struggling with today we say to them to hold on, and it does get better. 'You are beautiful no matter what they say/Words can't bring you down.'"

You can even see LC member Neal Coryell in the back row at about 2:45 and 3:55! Thank you to both of these groups for their song of solidarity.
