It Gets Better Tour TRAILER from Ben Jehoshua on Vimeo.

It Gets Better
Perelman Theater
Saturday, November 8


Written and directed by Speak Theater Arts’ Liesel Reinhart, It Gets Better is infused with the dynamic musical energy of The Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles and the internationally recognized branding of the It Gets Better Project™. It Gets Better 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 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. The team at the It Gets Better Project collaborated with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles in bringing the it gets better message to the stage.
