Nine out of 10 LGBT teenagers experience bullying and harassment at school, and LGBT teens are four times likelier to attempt suicide.
But LGBT adults aren't allowed to talk to these kids. Schools and churches don't bring us in to talk to teenagers who are being bullied. Many of these kids have homophobic parents who believe that they can prevent their LGBT children from ever coming out by depriving them of information, resources, and positive role models.
ItGetsBetter.org is a place where young people who are lesbian, gay, bi, or trans can see how love and happiness can be a reality in their future. It's a place where our straight allies can visit and support their friends and family members. It's a place where people can share their stories, take the It Gets Better Project pledge and watch videos of love and support.
In addition to running a website that encourages LGBT youth, donations to the It Gets Better Project benefit LGBT youth service organizations and resources.
Many LGBT youth can't picture what their lives might be like as openly LGBT adults. They can't imagine a future for themselves. So let's show them what our lives are like, let's show them what the future may hold in store for them. Let's show them It Gets Better.
