This "It Gets Better" video is from the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus.  It features members talking about their experiences growing up in high school and how life got better for them afterward.  At the end of the video, the Chorus sings "Irish Blessing" in honor and memory of those LGBT teenagers who left us far too soon in the hope that in the future people will live.

A group video from the Castro here.
