Pgh LGBTQA Youth Post Response Video to ‘It Gets Better’ Video

Found a link to this in my box today … I think its great!


Interesting points that I took away from Han’s comments

Is the concept that ‘It Gets Better’ too big of a promise?

How can we as adults support young people seeking to ‘get better’ in the context Han suggests?

How can we as adults support ourselves – I’ve met more than one person who rejects the whole project because they simply don’t feel their lives are “better” – can we do something about it?

I may be showing my age but I think its pretty cool that they filmed this literally as the Pirates’ video was debuting on the big screen. I hope they’ll post more videos.

The reality is for many people, it doesn’t get better and I believe we have to be okay discussing this. Some people grow up and face life in a world where they are second or third class citizens and just continue to be pummeled by systems that reject them.  Or general life stuff that is perhaps magnified in impact because of our LGBT identities. Han’s suggestion that developing better tools inside ourselves to handle these things that we can’t control is wise. And so hard.
