It Gets Better

I really like the campaign "It Gets Better" of older people who are gay, lesbian, transgendered, or just want to support the people who are and prevent teen suicide. My former teacher (Mr. Johnson - the tall, black guy, smiling) happens to be in a Chrome video that features lots of different voices talking how it really does get better as you grow older. I actually think this applies not only to gay kids but to all people. Being a teenager is hard, but growing older really gives you prospective and lets you feel better about the skin you are in.

Anyhoo, I'm glad project like this can exist and give people hope and a connection when they can't find one with the people they are surrounded by.

This is the original veideo Mr. Johnson appears in:
