Press release - For Immediate Release - May 12th

 

 

 

We're All Human, official theme tune for IDAHOT on May 17, breaks into the UK charts.

 

We're All Human, the new charity single from The L Project and official theme tune for the 10th International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHOT) on May 17th, has entered the UK official independent singles chart at no 36.

 

The song, which in it's first week of release was tweeted by celebrities such as Stephen Fry, Clare Balding, and Martina Navratilova, stands a chance of breaking into the mainstream over the coning weeks. If it does, it will carry with it IDAHOT's message to stand against violence and oppression, and promote freedom, diversity and acceptance wolrdwide.

 

"Diversity and love is a message everyone can get behind, whether LGBT or not", commented Georgey Payne, one of the project's coordinators. "We hope that everyone - especially non-LGBT people - takes the opportunity this week to download the song and add their vote of support for a world without prejudice."

The song, recorded over a weekend at London's Dean Street Studios, combines the talents of 19 LGBT artists, many of whom are established on the LGBT scene. All these artists gave their time for free to The L Project, who have been raising funds and awareness to promote diversity for the last two years.

 

The L Project's 2012 single 'It Does Get Better' reached number 11 in the UK independent charts and has so far raised almost £10,000 for Stonewall and Diversity Role Models.

 

We're All Human will be donating 100% of all proceeds to LGBT charities Kaleidoscope Trust, who fight to uphold the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people internationally; The Russian LGBT Network, who will help victims of LGBT abuse in Russia; and Mermaids, a UK youth transgender charity.

The song can be downloaded on all good download sites, including iTunes and Amazon iTunes:

Further background notes

 


You can find lots of information about exactly who we are and what we do on our main website (see links at the top of the page). There you will find out about our mission, and well as back ground on our prevous charity song, It Does Get Better, and the story of who we are and how we came to be.

A brief outline is provided beneath, however for your convenience:

 


The L Project is run by Georgey Payne and Sofia Antonia Milone.

 

On Feb 11th 2012 The L Project released an LGBT anti-bullying charity song entitled It Does Get Better.

It was recorded by seventeen of the UK's most talented lesbian artists. All proceeds including all royalties from both the song and the video go directly to two chosen charities Stonewall and Diversity Role Models who both help prevent LGBT bullying.

 

Within seventeen hours of release the song shot to No.1 in the UK Amazon and iTunes charts. It held position there for over a week. It also reached No.11 in the Official UK Independent Charts.

Overall It Does Get Better charted in 4 different countries worldwide.

In May 2013, Sofia and Georgey were flown out to Ohio, USA and Norway for two special performances of the charity song.

It Does Get Better has won three awards including Outstanding contribution to the LGBT community - Midlands Zone 2012 Readers Awards

 

 

The song gained worldwide LGBT media attention, and was supported and shared by many celebrities, including Clare Balding and Kirsty Allsop.

 

The song has raised thousands for The L project's chosen LGBT charities.

 

Since its release the It Does Get Better video has had 400,000 collective Youtube hits including the BSL & Subtitled version.

The L Project has to date gained over 40,000 likes on Facebook.

Once again, thankyou for taking the time to visit our online press pack for We're All Human.

 

We hope you have all the information you require prior to release, and we'd like to thank you in advance for anything you can do to help us spread the word.

 

We hope to raise even more money with this song, and generate even more awareness. As you can see, our aim is to get this song played on mainstream radio if possible, and one great way to do that is to get it into the top ten. Ambitious? Yes. But with your help, possible.

Sofia and Georgey
