The National Native American AIDS Prevention Center has recorded a special It Gets Better video aimed at LGBTQ Native American Youth to communicate to them that there is life after bullying and that they are valuable beyond measure.
The video’s description really says it all:
“This is for all the LGBTQ Native youth throughout the country. From the villages in Alaska, to the Islands in Hawaii, to every corner of Indian Reservations across America… It Gets Better…we are living proof!! If you or someone you know is feeling alone… call the Trevor Project… they can help! 1-866-4U-TREVOR.”
Particularly touching is the sentiment expressed by one young woman who says “I know you don’t know me, but you are still my brother. You are still my sister. You are still my friend. [...] You are not just okay. You are valuable.”
Don’t Suffer in Silence, Get Help
