NYC Congressional Delegation: It Gets Better! (VIDEO)


Members of New York City’s Congressional Delegation have recorded a special video to contribute to the It Gets Better project.

The video features Reps. Jerrold Nadler, Ed Towns, Eliot Engel, Carolyn Maloney, Joe Crowley and Jose Serrano. The Delegation stresses that important strides towards equality have been made in recent years and that, while it may feel to LGBT teens like you are alone and that bullying is just “a fact of life,” you do not have to put up with it and there are people who want to help you.

LGBTs, don't give up! No matter what your sexuality is, it doesn't change the fact that we're all living beings who deserve love. It's not about whether you agree with LGBTs or not; it's about whether you treat them as who they are (living creatures like you and I) or not ;)
