It Gets Better
#1
I'm kind of surprised that I can't find a thread here about this. I figured this would be a great place for this message.

If you haven't heard, Dan Savage created a youtube channel and asked for all LGTB people and LGTB supporters to submit videos about how life gets better when you come out and live your life. This was done in the wake of the suicides across the US, and there have been hundreds of responses ranging from just everyday people to Barack Obama. This movement is just amazing and I hope not only does it reach the kids that feel like suicide is the only option, but I hope that it reaches some of the parents, the bullies and opponents of gay rights and opens their eyes a little to the plight that they are inflicting to the LGTB community.

Here are some of the videos:

Do you have any It Gets Better stories or videos you want us to see?
In the end, it boils down to two simple choices. Either you do or you don't. You'd think with all the problems in this world, there'd be more answers. It's not fair... but its the way things are. The choice is yours. ~ Zidane Tribal

Hope is comforting, it allows us to accept fate no matter how tragic it may be. ~ Yunalesca

I love this project. It's depressing all the suicides lately. If it helps at least person it's a good thing.

thx for the links, just been having a look and im amazed at how many people are backing this and posting, i hate bullying and stood up for a smaller workmate only last week when a very large works charge hand bullied him, out come was he appologiesd to him and things have been good since,,, must be terrible for younger people to be harrassed by a larger group or bigger individual but lets hope the schools take this very seriously and provide support to victims
