Launching the project is Melbourne foursome and international guitar pop champions, Twerps with their song "It's Time". Recorded during the band's sessions for their 2015 album Range Anxiety, ex-bassist, who wrote the song Rick Milovanovic explains;
"It's Time was written in 2013 during the rise of the Abbott era. The song was a reminder to him and his party that they would not be speaking on behalf of all straight Australians. Most importantly, it was also a message of support to the LGBTIQ+ community, that a lot of straight Australians would be right by their side in the fight for equality in this country."
