    It Gets Better Project logo
    We uplift, empower, and connect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth around the globe.

    Now more than ever LGBTQ youth need support and love.  From the website:

    “In September 2010, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage created a YouTube video with his partner Terry Miller to inspire hope for young people facing harassment. In response to a number of students taking their own lives after being bullied in school, they wanted to create a personal way for supporters everywhere to tell LGBT youth that, yes, it does indeed get better.

    The It Gets Better Project™ has become a worldwide movement, inspiring more than 50,000 user-created videos viewed more than 50 million times. To date, the project has received submissions from celebrities, organizations, activists, politicians and media personalities, including President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Adam Lambert, Anne Hathaway, Colin Farrell, Matthew Morrison of “Glee”, Joe Jonas, Joel Madden, Ke$ha, Sarah Silverman, Tim Gunn, Ellen DeGeneres, Suze Orman, the staffs of The Gap, Google, Facebook, Pixar, the Broadway community, and many more. For us, every video changes a life. It doesn’t matter who makes it. is a place where young people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender can see how love and happiness can be a reality in their future.  It’s a place where our straight allies can visit and support their friends and family members.  It’s a place where people can share their stories, take the It Gets Better Project pledge and watch videos of love and support.”

    Thank you all for voting!  In current times a charity like this one, aimed at at risk kids and sending them a positive message and support, are super important.  I hope the votes continue but just getting more recognition is awesome.

    With all the new and hateful legislation that is targeting LGBTQ+ youth I think it is time to support this amazing organization again.
