Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and Rick Santorum are among the names on Dan Savage's wish list for the "It Gets Better" video campaign, according to an interview with Time magazine.
In the interview, Savage is asked about the inspiration for the campaign. "Last summer I was reading about teen suicides, speaking at colleges and thinking that what I should be doing is going to high schools. But I would never get permission, as a gay adult, to speak to gay kids. Then it occurred to me that in the YouTube era, I was waiting for permission I no longer needed."
But the revelation of the interview is undoubtedly Savage's wish list for future "It Gets Better" participants. "Rick Santorum. Tim Pawlenty. Sarah Palin. Glenn Beck. The Prime Minister of Britain, who leads the Conservative Party there, made a video, and we haven't seen one from anyone on the right in the U.S. to even say, 'You're 14 and gay. Don't kill yourself.'"
