ELI LIEB: Music Video for Pride 2018: Trevor Project outreach at his old school
After a 14-year old trans boy took his own life in Eli Lieb’s home town, Eli went back to his school in Iowa to talk to kids about the support that is available to them, and brought literature from the Trevor Project. He wrote and recorded a song and created a lovely video.
He’s hoping that this can speak to the LGBTQ+ youth about support and belonging.
Have the tissues handy….
Background info from Press Release:
Just for background, I think the most lovely and striking thing about him is that he has always presented his sexuality as normal as it is, rather than writing about the trauma of not being straight (like Steve Grand), he has been writing and releasing pop love songs, depicting same-sex couples as the normal loving relationships they are.
About Eli Lieb from his website:
Eli Lieb is an American pop singer and songwriter. Hailing from Fairfield, Iowa, Eli began his musical journey in New York City where he started working on his songwriting and performing. He released a debut solo album in 2011 and was soon featured in US Weekly, Out and other national publications.
With over 30 Million YouTube views, and verified status on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, his personal interaction and presence as an independent artist is one that keeps him moving forward. Eli is a lifelong practitioner of transcendental meditation, which he credits with giving him a sense of awareness and spirituality that has helped keep him grounded while creating honest music. He’s worked with the David Lynch Foundation to promote the transcendental meditation movement.
