she's afraid to come out, and she can't wait to leave and he longs for the day when he can wear his heart there on his sleeve they don't know which box to choose form the two on the machine and there's no one that looks like him projected on the screen let him be, let her be, let them be let her be, let him be, let them be themself he calls out the hate when he sees it their friends get mad - can't you just get along? she's out of the group left alone again can't believe she's got no friends knocked down for standing strong he gets stares and no one cares, she's different she's not the same, they won't use his name the butt of a joke, not so innocent pokes, disappointed by his folks she's depressed, and they just want to scream let him be, let her be, let them be let her be, let him be, let them be themself

about

This is a PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN release, and 100% of the proceeds from this single will be donated to TRUE COLORS UNITED.

About this release:

When our daughter came out to us as a teen, we wanted to surround her with our most unconditional love and acceptance, to ensure that she felt the confidence and support she needed, to truly be herself. While I certainly know what it feels like to be rejected for being different, I can't imagine how terrifying it can be for a young LGBTIQ person striving to become their true authentic self. Some of these youth are treated with disgust and hatred by those around them, even by their own families. It is also common for some LGBTIQ youth to be forced from their home, with nowhere to go. With that in mind, this video was produced as a fundraiser for TRUE COLORS UNITED, an organization founded by the one and only Cyndi Lauper, that is implementing innovative solutions to youth homelessness that focus on the unique experiences of LGBTIQ young people.
