    Most importantly its a good cause with great lyrics and a amazing range of vocals.

    I’m sure it will be around for a long time.

  2. I literally LOVE this song. Well done!!! and when i hear it on national radio it makes it all so very worthwhile. Keep up the great work L Project.

    Shared this on my facebook account, an account with 5,000 friends. I hope sharing the video helps raise awareness and helps raise funds.

  4. This song is truly awful. I had to laugh and smile when I heard it only reached number 11 in the singles chart. Really a complete waste of money.

  5. Where is it in the overall charts? Don’t see it in the top 100

  6. looks like it bombed straight out of the charts hahaa

    “men in their skirts” is totally transphobic!!! Not a win for my community.

      Hi Maxwell,

      I have no problem with the men in skirts lines because as a woman with a transsexual history I’m not in any way a man in a skirt and never have been. However I do know cross dressers and others in the trans community who would describe themselves as that. Not everything has to be aimed at transsexuals, I fear some people are being way too tetchy about this. If I was writing the song I’d of chosen another line because of my knowledge…but…this song was written from another less informed perspective it attempted to be trans inclusive. Personally I’d rather people try and fail than for them to be not trans inclusive out of fear of getting it wrong.

      I love this song for its message and the brilliant range of vocals. The L Project are not in any way transphobic only the other day on Facebook they put a call out for followers to report the transphobic Paddy Power TV ad to the ASA.

      Using words like transphobic is way too strong.

    Wow. This actually made me cry. I experienced severe bullying in school for my sexuality.

    It warms my heart to know that there is a charity out there trying to stop the madness. And the fact that the song is brilliant with amazing vocals just makes it even better.

    I’ve posted a blog post about the L Project and what they’re doing. I think people need to hear it, and understand it.

    L Project, you are the voices for the young LGBT’s out there who have no voice of their own. You are an inspiration and ledgends of the LGBT community.

    1. A tad cheesy and outdated but makes a few small ripples i suppose.

  9. As a fledgling charity, fundraising efforts such as these really help us to fulfil the high demand from schools for our role model workshops
