Digitas New York to LGBT Teens: “It Gets Better” (VIDEO)

Digitas New York to LGBT Teens: “It Gets Better” (VIDEO)

Adding their voices to the “It Gets Better” message, employees at Digitas New York have recorded a video in which they discuss how they felt growing up as LGBT teenagers and how life has continued to get better every day since they found communities in which they are supported and valued.

The video has a more conversational feel than previous videos we’ve featured from the It Gets Better project.

Watch it below:

Have You Heard About the Make It Better Project?
The Make It Better Project is supported by a host of LGBT organizations and charities, and is aimed at LGBT youth with the message that, yes, it does get better, but you don’t have to wait. There are people who want to help stop the bullying right here, right now—all you have to do is reach out to them and ask for help.

For more information, and links to resources for LGBT teens, their parents, educators and straight advocates, please click here.

Thanks for the posting! Teenagers face so many social pressures... help with acceptance issues can be vital...and the Trevor Project is certainly way up there on the list of helpful outreach!

This is about the journey of people, of human beings.

I really liked this one and its kind of unrehearsed manner.

Excellent news. The more people that supports the "It Gets Better" project the more encouragement it will give to LGBT teens

It's getting better, but help is still needed.

So, all together now, let's promise our LGBT-fellow humans, young & old: It's getting better, and we'll stand by you!

OK?

It will get even more better (yeah I know) when the hard heads of the world begin to accept and inclucate the reality that homosexuality is a natural human phenomenon.
