I urge you to share this message with the young people you know:
The "It Gets Better Project" has already received 130+ videos submitted by adults whose message to gay or "different" teens is that no matter how dark and difficult it seems, it does get better -- by the time you get out of high school or college. 220,000 views on YouTube, featured in Time Magazine & other media. See one of the videos by clicking here.
Perhaps this message can help save one bullied young person. Before they do something tragic, they need to know it does get better.
