It Gets Better

Founded by Dan Savage and his husband Terry Miller, the It Gets Better Project is a viral video campaign that strives to reach out to troubled youth. Boasting more than 50 million views over 50,000 videos, the It Gets Better Project was created in responses to suicides among LGBT teenagers, including Billy Lucas, Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh, and Asher Brown, who experienced bullying and social ostracization due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. Many celebrities and public figures have lent their voices to the campaign, such as Barack Obama, Justin Bieber, and Ellen DeGeneres. Contributions benefit GLSEN and The Trevor Project.

The subjects of the Check It documentary are giving hope to young people.
