It gets better

This is so cool — hopefully it will help the young kids out there who feel so alone and desperate to undertstand that It Gets Better:

A great start to what should be an ongoing campaign of encouragement.

    Check out this clever counterpart to the “It gets better” project. It’s the same message, but with a neat twist.

    Sorry,JAB! I’ll probably be moving back to Blogger pretty soon.

    Anyway, I did see the video, so it all worked out. Thanks for adding some comments to this lonely little post.

    Good morrow, all!
    “This above all: to thine own self be true,
    And it must follow, as the night the day,
    Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
    In a world where we learn that being honest about yourself leads to pain and conflict, these words of Laertes to Polonius ring true.
    I work with gay, bi and transgendered men and women. I support the local GLBT community. They are part of the multicultural mosaic of Canada, and deserve to be recognized as a distinct culture, just like South Asians of all religious and cultural origins, Italians, natives and Metis.
    Recognition and respect – I’m sure these concepts are just VAGUELY familiar to most conservatives, inasmuch as they would demand such, but, rarely, if ever, extend as much.
    Recognition and respect are two elements of mature social interaction – not to be demanded, but to be given freely, without condition or limitation.
    When we are honest with ourselves and to ourselves, we “canst not then be false to any man.”

    I love this viral campaign and think that Dan Savage deserves lots of praise for launching it. So many excellent messages across the spectrum – from an angry young latina lesbian to BD Wong’s tender message about being a gay parent.

    JAB, the link worked for me and that is a very powerful confession. He is like so many people I knew and still know who really need to wake up and reassess their values and perceptions. I’m so glad he seems to be realizing that he is wrong. He still comes across as a bit self-absorbed but at least he is thinking about it.

    I don’t think that that was a real person in the video. It was more of a satirical reinforcement of Dan Savage’s message.


Wait. What?
