I hate to be so inarticulate, but that was FUCKING AWESOME.

Now that's what I call affirming!

Yep. That one got me crying bigtime.
Gay men's choruses are the one real reason I wish I lived in a big city.

Thank you so much for posting this, Andy. It was an amazing experience shooting this video. If it saves one life, it was worth it.

People everywhere are using Dan Savage's "It Gets Better" project exactly as it was intended . . . to raise the Web profiles of those who take part in it. As for actually helping put a stop to anti-Gay bullying, who really gives a f*ck about that?
This is the previously scheduled point at which we rise to the bait and respond in kind to Stuffed Animal.

Anyone out there contemplating the very worth of their own life, please watch this beautiful video of our friends and know ---it get's better!
But please, try to avoid reading too many more of the gay blogs right now. It's election season and people are using us ...again... for their own gain. They just don't understand us. We're not a threat to them. They are the ones who are confused.
Turn the computer off. Find a project, a purpose for your next few months. Join a volunteer organization. Travel the world. There are so many misfortuned people out there. We are not alone in our feelings of not being wanted in this world.
You can make your decision any time. I believe it is my ultimate privelege to decide where and when I check out in this world. With that in my posession, I keep going day by day.
In my travels I have seen so many people so much less fortunate than I that somehow have such strength to keep on going. My own strength lately lies in making things better for them also. It's a drop in an ocean of needy people but it makes a huge difference to those around me.
Often we only see our own situation and fail to see the global vision that we, as outsiders, have such a unique perspective to share and contribute to make this world a better place for all people who have been kicked to the wayside, gay or straight.
We have a greater purpose on this planet. Suck it up and keep going. Get involved. See the world. It will open your teary eyes and give you strength you never thought possible.

Amazing!!! I work with a group of 15 LGBTQQA youth and I'm showing them this to them tomorrow.

just, WOW!!! can't believe how easy it is to tear up at the beauty. unfortunately, even at 51 years old, I remember the taunts and altercations, all thru school, no matter how much I tried to fit in.
but, it does get better...

Thank you for posting this video. So many of these "It Gets Better" videos have made me emotional, this one especially. I am so proud to be a part of a community that can rise above hatred (internal and external) and lift up people with creative and thoughtful expressions of love and support.

Thanks for posting
And let the sad cynics wallow in their own misery
