Watch: Nancy Pelosi's 'It Gets Better' Video

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's contribution to the "It Gets Better" campaign was released late yesterday, one day after President Obama's own video hit the Internet.

Her encouraging message: “To anyone who feels different, to those of you who feel lost or think you don’t fit in, to those who feel singled out because of who you are — I add my voice to the chorus of parents, friends, teachers, mentors and leaders in your neighborhoods and across the country to say, ‘It gets better.' You are not alone.”

Watch her video, AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. Pelosi's first speech on the floor of the House was to fight for AIDS funding and against the Reagan Administration's refusal to take the disease seriously. No other speaker or leader has been as supportive as Nancy Pelosi and she has stood with our community in every major fight. She was right not pass additional legislation in the House believing that she had made her members take enough difficult votes when the Senate has not acted on the stack of bills that await a vote. To those who say her actions have not matched her words, you have not studied history, oversimplified the work of Congress and aren't familiar with all that she has done for our community. She even came out publicly and said that she hoped Obama wouldn't appeal DADT.
    I was especially disappointed in Jason's comments and hope that he studies how supportive she has been and what a loss it will be to not have her as Speaker. Who does he think in the Congress could be a better advocate than her? Of the Democratic leadership nobody has been a stronger fighter. And he's kidding himself if any LGBT legislation happens under House Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor.
