San Francisco Police Department: It Gets Better (Awesome Video)

Here’s an awesome “It Gets Better” video from the San Francisco Police Department.

A group of gay and lesbian members of the SF police department, hailing from around the world, tell their stories of growing up with humor and wisdom.

And they assure their audience: “We here in the San Francisco Police Department will stick with you.”
