It Gets Better

I recently came across the It Gets Better Project, created by writer and advocate, Dan Savage. The idea of the project can be best summed up by this quote, from the web site: "Many LGBT youth can't picture what their lives might be live as openly gay 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."

I have watched close friends grow up and eventually come out, and the support and love that everyone needs is not always abundant within their small worlds. I hope that young people everywhere are turning to these story tellers for encouragement, friendship, and validation. Everyone deserves to be who they are and who they want to be, without apologies or explanation. This project takes the word inspirational to a new level.
