Actor Sam Trammel has recorded a video for the It Gets Better campaign.
In the video Trammel, who plays Sam Merlotte in HBO’s hit supernatural drama True Blood, says that “Right now there are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered or questioning youths contemplating suicide, and you might be one of them. And if you are, I have a very important message for you: It gets better.”
He goes on to say that people bully other people because they themselves are insecure and that it is important to realize the microcosm of school does not represent the outside world.
