Happy National Coming Out Day

Happy National Coming Out Day, LGBT community and supporters!

As you may know by now, news of the heartbreaking suicides of several gay youths due to bullying has hit over the past few weeks. In response to these tragedies, the It Gets Better Project was set up. The videos hope to reach out to struggling gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth to urge them not to give up and to let them know that, even if times seem overwhelmingly tough right now, it gets much better.

Stay strong, LGBT youth! I can tell you from experience that it gets better. You've got a friend in me and an entire community of people just like you who can help, so don't give up.

Thank you for that link. It really, really does get better for any type of kid out there as the time goes on. I always try to tell some younger people I know- just keep going. The world is bigger than middle school and high school. You just got to keep going, no matter how impossible it seems.

Happy Coming Out Day!
