Sep 29, 2010: This Weekend, it Got a Little Bit Better
A big huge thanks to all the folks who showed up Sunday to help us tape a message from San Francisco to LGBT youth who feel lonely and isolated wherever they are. As the video says: it gets better!
We had a wonderful turnout, and everyone had amazing stories to tell from tear-jerkers to happy endings. Please do let me know what you think of the finished product: I'd love to hear your feedback for future videos.
And of course it's never too late to make your own! This video tells the story of a very particular kind of person: someone who moved to San Francisco and is engaged in the activist community. But there are tons of other LGBTs out there whose lives are very different from those of the folks we met this weekend.
So please, keep telling your stories! Whether we're sharing them with isolated youth or with our families or with each other, the more we see of each other, the more connected we become.
Since I posted this video, Dan Savage has put out a call for people in other cities to create similar messages. I would love to see more group-videos come out in the days and weeks ahead. It is totally easy to do, so there's no excuse not to! I put this video together in a matter of days and with very few resources, so I know you can, too. All it took was deciding to do it, emailing some friends to ask for their help, and emailing a few organizations to see if they could lend a hand. The response was phenomenal, and I can't wait to see what sort of response this video inspires. Let's get to work.
