Patricia Racette Joins "It Gets Better" Campaign

Patricia Racette

Acclaimed soprano Patricia Racette has contributed a video PSA to the national "It Gets Better" campaign. The video with her partner, mezzo-soprano Beth Clayton, was posted to the Metropolitan Opera's YouTube page and describes how they felt about coming out in Opera News in 2002. The "It Gets Better" campaign was created in response to several recent suicides by gay teens and seeks to help LGBT youth realize that they can live happy, productive lives as openly gay adults. Watch their fantastic video here. And don't miss Patricia Racette in the Met's production of Il Trovatore running through November 19.
