2017 is a special year for the LGBTQI+ community in the UK as it marks the 50th Anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967.
La La Music UK and Klubkidz Productions wanted to celebrate this momentous anniversary year in their own special way, and commemorate the work of human rights activists as well as ordinary Britons who fought hard for equal rights.
To round off an amazing year of creative artistic and media events, we would like to celebrate the achievements of our past 50 years by releasing the song ‘Love Is The Only Law’ and hosting a charity and launch event at the Groucho Club, Soho on Sunday 3rd December at 7 pm.
It took almost 500 years from the passing of the Buggery Act 1533, which made homosexuality punishable by death, to reach partial decriminalisation in 1967. As we mark the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967, it would serve us well to recognise how far we’ve come, and yet how far we still have to go, especially in other countries around the world.
The single entitled ‘Love Is The Only Law‘ is the brainchild of ‘4 Poofs and a Piano’ star David Roper who joins forces of creativity with new recording artist Lady Bee and KlubKidz producer Jason Prince (host of Keza and Jason show on Gay One Radio Malta).
Together with former activist Lynn Sutcliffe of Mighty Productions, this team of friends has written an inspirational, bittersweet and moving song. With the blessings of movie producer and former George Michael manager, Simon Napier-Bell, the songwriters were inspired to compose the lyrics for the song after attending the premiere of his movie ‘50 Years Legal‘.
The project has expanded with the involvement of TV celebrities, Pop Stars, youth groups/students and popular entertainers from the LGBTQI+ community.
LGBTQI+ Youth Project And Friends – Love Is The Only Law – single will be released in 3rd December 2017 as a hot contender for the traditional Christmas number 1.
LGBTQI+ Youth Project And Friends are delighted to support The Albert Kennedy Trust with this project, as their work specifically helps young LGBTQI+ people who are facing homelessness, living in hostile environments or experiencing abuse for simply being who they are.
I’m looking forward to hear the result, aren’t you ? on the 3rd of December the wait is over (mark your calendars).
