I’ve launched a channel on YouTubewww.youtube.com/itgetsbetterprojectto host these videos. My normally camera-shy husband and I already posted one. We both went to Christian schools and we were both bulliedhe had it a lot worse than I didand we are living proof that it gets better. We don’t dwell too much on the past. Instead, we talk mostly about all the meaningful things in our lives nowour families, our friends (gay and straight), the places we’ve gone and things we’ve experiencedthat we would’ve missed out on if we’d killed ourselves then.
Another way to help this continuing crisis is to support the Trevor Project, which runs a suicide hotline for gay kids, and has saved many lives.
