I just saw this video from Electronic Arts staff who have joined the "It Gets Better" campaign

Quote:
The "It Gets Better Project" is a movement aimed towards empowering troubled LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) individuals. Since a lot of them can't see a future being open about the way they are, the organization shows them that yes, it gets better. Video game giant Electronic Arts, too, has joined the cause, and their staff share their stories on how things are going to turn out better.

I was wondering if you guys were aware of this campaign?

Yes, it's pretty big news over here. My understanding is that it came about as a reaction to a string of suicides by gay/lesbian teens. (Or were they all gay? I'm sorry, I can't remember all of the suicides.) I do think it's a positive thing, as it was just heartbreaking that these kids killed themselves. :(

Yes, the "It Gets Better" campaign has been around here for a couple of months, and it's fantastic. :) A lot of fairly famous people have made videos in support of the project. I'm very glad to hear that it's spread worldwide!

I absolutely love the name, even if it sort of promises something they can't guarantee. :P The bigger point is that: things aren't always shit. There's an ebb and flow to life, so just remember that when you hit the lows, and please don't feel that you'll be there forever.

It's pretty horrifying how some people act towards the gay community; I'm glad there's a lot more support than there used to be, and hope it continues because it's the right thing to do, not cuz it's trendy. For those who've been brainwashed to hate themselves or others, I believe the core sentiment to remember is this:
