GLSEN is teaming up with Mimi Imfurst and XELLE

Who doesn't love a good beat with a positive message? XELLE is partnering up with GLSEN for the release of their third single "Invincible" to support our work to ensure safe schools for LGBT students and their allies.

The ladies of XELLE (JC Cassis, Rony G and Mimi Imfurst) are using the upcoming release of their song "Invincible" to increase awareness about anti-LGBT bullying and harassment. And the energetic pop group are going to donate sales of "Invincible" to GLSEN when the single is released on Valentines Day, February 14, 2012 .

Group member Mimi Imfurst initially reached out to GLSEN about supporting our work. The vivacious drag queen (also seen on RuPaul's Drag Race) had this to say about the partnership:

“When I was in high school, it was bullying by my peers and being assaulted by a school personnel that lead to me being outted to my family. I then found myself homeless after being kicked out of my house for being gay.  GLSEN was one of the organizations that supported me during that time.  As a member of XELLE it is important that we give back so no young person has to experience what I did.

XELLE is celebrating the release of their new single this coming Tuesday in New York City. The "Invincible" Release Party is hosted by Season 4 RuPaul’s Drag Race Star Jiggly Caliente and Project Runway Season 9 runner up Joshua McKinley. You must be 21+ to attend the event. There is no cover, but drink sales will benefit GLSEN!

 

Mimi Imfurst made a special video to share with our followers about the partnership with GLSEN and why she cares about our work. Make sure to watch it below!

The "Invincible" music video will also be released exclusively on blog.glsen.org on February 15. Make sure to visit our blog to watch the ladies of XELLE turn it out in support of LGBT students and their allies.
