About the It Gets Better Project®:

The mission of the It Gets Better Project® is to communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth around the world that it gets better, and to create and inspire the changes needed to make it better for them.  The Project was founded in September, 2010, when the original it gets better® video was created and posted to YouTube, igniting a worldwide phenomenon. That first video offered a needed message of hope to LGBT youth. It urged young people to stay true to themselves even through the bullying and other challenges that confronted them in their adolescent years. It described the positive future they could experience as adults. The message was simple: that no matter how difficult things may be, it gets better. Today, the It Gets Better Project has a library of over 50,000 videos and focuses its efforts in three major program areas: media, community engagement and international.
