The latest in the ongoing series of "It Gets Better" campaign videos is an energetic high school musical number that's certain to knock your socks off.
The clip, which has been posted by Towleroad and Instinct magazine among other media outlets, is set to the tune of Lady Gaga's "Hair," and features slick "Glee"-style choreography and costumes. A prom sequence in which two male students share a tender embrace on the dance floor is undoubtedly the highlight.
The YouTube description notes:
In support of the It Gets Better Project, Colton James Boettcher's artistic vision takes shape in the form of a music video interpretation of Lady Gaga's song, 'Hair.' Hair is about being yourself, being true to who you are; as the song exemplifies, "you are the spirit of your hair, it's all the glory you bare," YOU are your #hair.
As most of us know, growing up isn't easy. Countless young people are faced with daily tormenting and bullying, causing them to feel isolated and alone. This is an especially harsh reality for LGBT kids and teens, who often hide their sexuality for fear of bullying. In many instances, gay and lesbian adolescents are taunted, sometimes even tortured, simply for being themselves.
