Anti-Gay Bulling song proves hit with downloaders

Charity single, It Does Get Better, became the weekend number one on the Amazon rock chart while it peaked at number two on the iTunes download rock chart.

Performed by The L Project – a group of lesbian UK performers – the track had been the most downloaded track at certain points over the weekend but slipped into second place in the Sunday final countdown.

It Does Get Better, released to raise money to support LGBT bodies Stonewall and Diversity Role Models, aims to raise awareness about anti-gay and transgender bullying.

Suran Dickson, CEO of Diversity Role Models told PinkNews, “We are delighted to be part of the L Project’s charity single. Georgey Payne, Sofia Antonia Milone and their team of artists have put an immense amount of time and passion into the delivery of this incredibly moving song, all to enable us and Stonewall to deliver on the promise that ‘It Does Get Better’.” Adding, “As a fledgling charity, fundraising efforts such as these really help us to fulfil the high demand from schools for our role model workshops, so we couldn’t be more pleased with the response from the LGBT community over the weekend.”

As well as proving a success on iTunes the song also hit the top spot on Amazon UK’s Best Sellers Rock and Folk Charts. Its success was really an overnight smash as the track only hit the download sites on Saturday.

The track can be bought from iTunes and Amazon UK.
