North Carolina State University has a message for LGBT youth in the state and across the world who might be facing bullying or harassment because of who they are: that life gets better and to hang in there because there’s so much waiting for you in your future.
This documentary style It Gets Better video encompasses the stories of several people, many of whom faced severe prejudice in the state but who say they are “living proof” that life does and is getting better.
