Charity single “It Does Get Better” at no. 11 in UK charts
On 11th February last The L Project released their charity single “It Does Get Better” which features the best of British lesbian artists. The song was inspired by writer and composer Georgey Payne’s friend, who was being bullied and beaten in school at the age of 15 for being gay.
These female artists aim to put an end to all kinds of bullying and especially bullying due to one’s sexual orientation. The women are singing for the charities Diversity Role Models and Stonewall in support of the fight to end homophobia and other obstacles LGBT people face in their day-to-day lives.
The single has received no airplay or coverage but has nevertheless received over 100,000 views on YouTube and is currently at number 11 on the UK Independent Singles Chart and number one in the Amazon Folk and Rock song charts.
It’s never alright to bully someone and nothing gives anyone the right to. The L Project are doing a fantastic job and you can support them by buying the single here or here. As they sing in the song:
For all those men in their skirts, all the boys loving boys and the girls loving girls, I tell you it does get better.
