Video I Love: It Gets Better

After yet another teen suicide by a gay kid who was relentlessly bullied in high school, Dan Savage has started a new project: It Gets Better. He’s collecting YouTube videos of individuals talking about how it does get better after high school.

“If you’re gay or lesbian or bi or trans, and you’ve ever read about a kid like Billy Lucas and thought, “Fuck, I wish I could’ve told him that it gets better,” this is your chance. We can’t help Billy, but there are lots of other Billys out there—other despairing LGBT kids who are being bullied and harassed, kids who don’t think they have a future—and we can help them.”

Here’s the video from Dan and his partner.

Please check it out and tell any gay kid in your life that It Gets Better!!
