Hey there Guys,
Today I just wanted to share the exciting news that the It Gets Better Australia web page has now been launched.
Just in case you have not heard, It Gets Better is a fantastic movement that was developed to bring hope and support to gay and lesbian youth after the tragic suicides of gay teens in the USA. To quote the It Gets Better website:
In September 2010, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage created a YouTube video with his partner Terry to inspire hope for young people facing harassment. In response to a number of students taking their own lives after being bullied in school, they wanted to create a personal way for supporters everywhere to tell LGBT youth that, yes, it does indeed get better.
Eleven months later, the It Gets Better Project (TM) has turned into a worldwide movement, inspiring more than 25,000 user-created videos viewed more than 40 million times. To date, the project has received submissions from celebrities, organizations, activists, politicians and media personalities, including President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Adam Lambert, Anne Hathaway, Colin Farrell, Matthew Morrison of “Glee”, Joe Jonas, Joel Madden, Ke$ha, Sarah Silverman, Tim Gunn, Ellen DeGeneres, Suze Orman, the staffs of The Gap, Google, Facebook, Pixar, the Broadway community, and many more. For us, every video changes a life. It doesn’t matter who makes it.
I highly recommend you check out some of the amazing It Gets Better videos that people have made to inspire gay youth.
You can even watch my own It Gets Better Australia video that I created one year ago.
Why not take 5 minutes from your day, sit down and share your thoughts with a member of our young gay generation today. You just never know who may watch your video, you just never know the impact you could have on a young gay person’s life.
You may even save a life. Wouldn’t that be the most amazing Christmas gift!
