"it gets better" :: LGBTQ youth

dan savage founded the "it gets better" campaign as a way to show LGBTQ youth that their lives may not always seem so difficult :: here's what their website says ::

"ItGetsBetterProject.com is a place where young people who are gay, lesbian, bi, or trans can see with their own eyes how love and happiness can be a reality in their future. It’s a place where LGBT adults can share the stories of their lives, and straight allies can add their names in solidarity and help spread our message of hope."

you can watch a score of deeply moving and inspiring videos on their site :: this one from councilman joel burns of ft. worth, texas, is particularly incredible :: click below to watch ::

Ze,

I'm so glad you shared this project -- it really is amazing how many people have gathered around it. I work for Boston University, and our productions team just sat down with students and other members of the BU community to talk about their experiences as part of the IGB Project:

I hope you get a chance to watch at least a couple -- they're really compelling and beautifully done.

when we can set this thought in all the minds of our culture that bullies are nothing more than insecure individuals.

when we can look at someone who has disparaging words towards another with utter disapproval then we can feel assured that such harsh and undeserving words will not hurt our children.

until that time, try your best to go about life with the intention not to harm or hurt others, and if you do, apologize and for God sakes show some gratitude!

it's once around the park, make is good ride.

Ze,

I am glad to see you have posted this. Anti gay bullying isnt just a USA problem, its a problem that needs to be address worldwide.... there is no need for it
