XELLE Releases ‘Invincible’ to Support LGBTQ Youth (VIDEO)

XELLE Releases ‘Invincible’ to Support LGBTQ Youth (VIDEO)

 

Self-described Mega Pop makers XELLE have teamed up with GLSEN to launch ‘Invincible,’ their anthem for LGBTQ youth.

Released on Valentine’s Day, the single sends a positive and inspiring message to LGBTQ youth, while the video features clips of many YouTube videos made by and in support of LGBTQ young people.

Watch the video below:

Group member Mimi Imfurst reached out to GLSEN to make this partnership a reality.

The drag artist, who may be familiar to those who watch RuPaul’s Drag Race, is quoted by GLSEN as saying:

“When I was in high school, it was bullying by my peers and being assaulted by a school personnel that lead to me being outted to my family. I then found myself homeless after being kicked out of my house for being gay. GLSEN was one of the organizations that supported me during that time. As a member of XELLE it is important that we give back so no young person has to experience what I did.”

All proceeds from the single go the the GLSEN, an organization that works on behalf of LGBTQ youth to make schools safer and more inclusive. You can find the single on YouTube.

Thanks to XELLE and anyone that can show these kids that there are so many supporters that the ones that don't aren't worth the time or bother.
And thanks also to all the organizations that make this type of media publicity available to all GLBT youth.
