In light of the truly tragic slew of gay suicides a really cool video project called “It Gets Better” has emerged to offer encouragement and support to members of the LGBT community. Here are a few of my favorites. Check them out! Make your own? Show your support for those gay individuals who are struggling to accept themselves and embrace life and love their own way. I hope someday we can all learn to consider diversity an assent instead of an issue but until then I hope these videos spread awareness and hope. If you are a member of the LGBT community and need help there are people who will listen. Check out the Trevor Project. They have a 24 hour toll free anonymous hot line (1-800-4U-TREVOR) where someone is waiting to talk to you and help you in any way possible. Hell, send me an email [email protected]} if you need someone to talk to. There are people out there who will love you, all of you, just how you are.
And this one, well its just funny.
PS: So happy to see this project getting some regonition Check out the White House blog post about it!
