'It Gets Better' Project

Dan Savage
Dan Savage is a sex/relationship advice columnist ('Savage Love') and author. His weekly column, Savage Love, is very popular, along with his podcast. He and his partner, Terry, created a project called 'It Gets Better.' Basically, after a slew of teenagers committed suicide, Savage realized he wanted to do something to show lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and questioning teenagers (or really anyone of any age) that though it may seem hard right now, it does get better. People may taunt, or parents may not understand, but it won't be this hard forever. Tons of celebrities have jumped on the bandwagon to help push this project. Suicide is NOT the answer. Though things may seem hard, there is always someone who will talk to you, even if it's a stranger. Check out the videos, read the website/blog. And remember that you aren't alone--it DOES get better.
