It Gets Better

Kudos to writer Dan Savage for starting the "It Gets Better" project for LGBT youth.  He was moved by the recent string of gay teen suicides to ask out LGBT adults to tell kids that it gets better after adolescence.  Thousands of folks have made videos, some from well known LGBT people, but most from everyday people.  Here's one from Gene Robinson, the Episcopal Bishop from New Hampshire.  My only caveat about the recent media coverage of LGBT teen suicide is this: it has been a crisis for decades.  I'm not convinced more kids are trying to kill themselves now.  Maybe the issue is finally getting the attention it should have decades ago.
