Growing up isn’t easy. Many young people face daily tormenting and bullying, leading them to feel like they have nowhere to turn. This is especially true for LGBT kids and teens, who often hide their sexuality for fear of bullying. Without other openly gay adults and mentors in their lives, they can't imagine what their future may hold. In many instances, gay and lesbian adolescents are taunted — even tortured — simply for being themselves. The It Gets Better Project was created to show young LGBT people the
levels of happiness, potential, and positivity their lives will reach – if they can just get through their teen years. The It Gets Better Project wants to remind teenagers in the LGBT community that they are not alone — and it WILL get better.In September 2010, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage created a
YouTube video with his partner Terry 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.
