The Columbus Gay Men's Chorus along with the Columbus Children's Choir performed Christina Aguilera's Beautiful in a video for the It Gets Better campaign.

In the video, Timothy Sarsany, the artistic director of the Columbus Gay Men's Chorus, dedicates the performance to The Trevor Project, the California-based organization centered on crisis and suicide prevention efforts for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. The non-profit runs the nation's only 24-hour, toll free confidential suicide prevention hotline for gay and questioning youth.

“We would like to offer you an encore this evening,” Sarsany tells his audience. “The Trevor Project and their It Gets Better campaign reaches out to youth struggling with bullying over their sexuality and their perceived sexuality.”

“The Columbus Gay Men's Chorus can think of no better way to contribute to this campaign than to combine with the Columbus Children's Choir creating a video contribution to It Gets Better campaign with Christina Aguilera's Beautiful.”

“Whatever issues our youth are struggling with today, we say to them to hold on and it does get better,” Sarsany adds. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
