N.C. State University: It Gets Better!


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.

Don’t Suffer in Silence, Get Help

The Trevor Project runs a 24/7 helpline with trained counselors ready to listen if you or someone you know would like to talk about the issues dealt with in this post.

The Trevor Project Helpline number is 1-866-4-U-TREVOR (1-866-488-7386).

I very much like the idea of college students reminding high schoolers that the world does change after the diploma. I salute the maker of the video.

This is powerful, not only because of the actual students telling their stories, but also because it comes from NC. Thank you!
