A note from Juliet Simms and Andy Biersack
Thank you for visiting our Prizeo page! We are so excited for Warped Tour this summer, and we want to take one of you on tour with us for a couple of days...how does that sound?
We will be in Portland on August 7th, and Seattle on August 8th, and we want YOU to join us for both shows and the journey from Portland to Seattle on our tour bus! We'll have lunch, hang out, and have an awesome time! You'll also get VIP tickets with backstage access to the shows.
All you have to do is stand up for equality and show your support for the Gay Men's Chorus Los Angeles! Together we can help them support LGBT youth, challenge homophobia, and expose new communities to their message of equality through music.
Let's do this! We can't wait to hang with one of you!
Andy and Juliet
Every year over 85% of LGBT students in American schools are physically or verbally abused. The Alive Music Project and the It Gets Better Tour aim to combat bullying and bring music back into schools in Los Angeles and across the country.
The Alive Music Project is dedicated to proving that music and song are community building. Through music, students are engaged in understanding and discussing human rights, civil rights, and the LGBT struggle for equality. We are committed to changing hearts and minds through music, and inspiring students to use their art in order to make their voices heard!
The It Gets Better Tour takes the profound message that darkness can give way to a brighter future one step further, as a small, dedicated ensemble travels to communities nationwide to produce a week of educational workshops culminating in a moving musical theater performance. The week highlights anti-bullying, tolerance and acceptance through community roundtable discussions, high school visits, videos and creative exercises.
Both the Alive Music Project and the It Gets Better Tour are programs of The Gay Men's Chorus Los Angeles (GMCLA) - changing hearts and minds, one song at a time.
