Staff from the U.S. Department of the Interior have recorded a video for the It Gets Better project to let LGBT teens and all those that are bullied know that life does get better.
In the video, various members of the U.S. Department of the Interior talk about what life was like for them when they came out. One woman even discusses how it felt to be made to leave her church because the church pastor didn’t want her as part of the community now she had come out as lesbian.
Yet there is also talk of how life improves with self-acceptance, and how there are people out there just waiting to help anyone that is in distress.
Don’t Suffer in Silence, Get Help
