it gets better

it gets better

in partnership with Legacy Community Health Services and Bayou City Performing Arts

it gets better is a moving performance that utilizes the power of song and story to transform painful histories of bullying, harassment and discrimination into a celebration of courage and a campaign for social justice in Houston. The program features a touring cast who will be joined by Houston’s own Bayou City Performing Arts (BCPA). Bullying is the most often cited contributor to the extraordinary rise of violence and suicide among LGBT, Black, Latino and physically challenged people. Through a performance created under the direction of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, SPA and its collaborative partners Legacy Community Health Services and Bayou City Performing Arts, will have an opportunity to address bullying on a local level through the performing arts.

SPA is thrilled to host a week-long residency leading up to this performance. Our it gets better residency, April 28 - May 2, has several public events you won’t want to miss. Learn More Here.
